Student Affairs digital signage uses the FourWinds Interactive signage system. Digital signs throughout the Student Affairs network use a flat screen HDTV with a content player (compact PC) connected and mounted behind the screen. All templates and content visible on the screens are managed via the Content Manager Desktop which is software installed on the user’s computer. Currently, the Content Manager can only be installed and used on a Windows computer. Contact Student Affairs IT to request installation of the Content Manager Desktop.
If you need a new digital sign (screen/content player) installed or need a new sign configured on an existing screen, please contact Student Affairs IT.
Within the Content Manager Desktop, use the following template for all Student Affairs digital signage (horizontal):
Templates / SA Standard 16:9
- includes a single 16:9 content source region
- includes an optional text scroll / feed source region at the bottom – however, we recommend using this text feed only for signs that are used in a waiting area
