University of Minnesota improves communications with other campus locations via digital signage
The University of Minnesota is partnering with Tightrope Media Systems to expand its digital signage network across all campus locations, research stations and outreach centers. Tightrope Media Systems has integrated its Carousel Digital Signage Software 7.0 into 275 displays across the university systems, according to press release.
The software allows each department to create and send out local messages, unless the emergency alert system overrides that content. It also supports kiosks and touchscreens around campus for wayfinding and real-time bus schedules, according to the release.
"The transition to Carousel 7.0 makes it even easier for operators to turn out high-quality professional content even without web development or graphic design skills," said Eric Topping, digital signage manager, University of Minnesota, in the release. "Moving forward, 7.0 will allow us to take advantage of Tightrope’s integration with Apple TV, which turns Apple TV devices into actual digital signage media players. That will be a game changer in the way we support, manage and configure our systems. The way that Tightrope continues to bring new features and capabilities to Carousel and evolving how we can use digital signage makes them an ideal partner."
