A LCD tilling video wall controlled by digitalsignage.NET was installed in the main reception area that offers up-to-date, dynamic information to staff, students and visitors alike.
The video wall comprises a matrix of narrow displays that, thanks to the Templates feature within digitalsigange.NET, show complementary information simultaneously, thus serving several purposes at the same time- greeting visitors, informing students & staff and reducing perceived wait time at the reception desk.

The simplicity to change the information enables the school to upload specific information for parent’s evenings and other events.”

Long said‘’ Streaming the winter 2012 Black Country Games from a live feed promotes events from the wider community with the school’s participation.’’
