The Streetly Academy, a West Mindlands- based Sports college uses digital signage to mark its achievement of Academy status and present its exceptional academic results. A large digital wall controlled by digitalsignage.NET was installed in the main reception area to greet visitors, inform staff and students as they queue at the reception desk. The college chose to show a mix of videos featuring staff and students at various events and competitions as well as course- related information and general information about the Academy.
The ability to use layouts and thus to show complementary information simultaneously was a much appreciated feature, as John Long, IT & Estates Manager explains ‘’ the opportunity to display several different articles at once ensures we keep the whole school community informed.’’ The simplicity of using digitalsignage.NET allows the college to send timely, accurate and targeted messages addressed to various audiences, such as parents. John Long continues: ‘’ The simplicity to change the information enables the school to upload specific information for parent’s evenings and other events.”
The new digital signage system reinforces the forward-looking image of The Streetly Academy, that prides itself with a position in the top 8% of all schools, nationwide. ‘ The school used the IPTV product of our partner, Chamber TV, to stream live footage from a local event and make a positive contribution to their community ‘’ Streaming the winter 2012 Black Country Games from a live feed promotes events from the wider community with the school’s participation.’’ said the school’s IT Manager.
The LCD tilling video wall is made of 1 x 4 -46’’ Narrow Bezels and was installed by Chamber TV.
