For Digital Screen Managers

How to access the system

Student Affairs uses the FourWinds Interactive signage system. All signs use a flat screen HDTV with a content player (compact PC) connected and mounted behind the screen. The signs 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.

How to set up your digital screen

Within the Content Manager Desktop, use the following template for all Student Affairs digital signage (horizontal):
