Digital Signage

Digital Signage

The Tennessee Tech digital signage network is strategically located across campus to promote announcements, news, student activities, campus community-generated content and events, as well as critical updates such as emergency information and weather advisories. The network consists of 90+ display devices, typically a wall mounted LCD screen, that can vary in orientation and size and whether it is a static or interactive sign.

The signage on campus is overseen by two departments: Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Office of Communication and Marketing (OCM). ITS manages the set-up and hardware. OCM oversees the content manager training, signage content (which includes templates), permissions and content approvals.

We are currently in the process of transitioning from our previous digital signage provider to our new digital signage provider, Visix. We have begun virtual group trainings so that users are prepared when the time comes to open access to the system. Further details, including how to sign up, are available on the Digital Signage Training page. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at webmaster@tntech.edu

  • Getting Digital Signage for Your Area

    Getting Started

    Requesting a Sign ›

    To request a sign, you'll need to speak with your ITS Tier 2 Representative. A meeting will be set up to discuss what type of sign you'll be wanting (static vs interactive), size of the screen, and location. The process is simple and straight forward. ITS will inform you of all costs involved. Once setup, we can move on to the next step, creating content.

    Template Set-Up ›

    Once the screen is installed, OCM will then set up the sign's template for you to edit. The manager(s) will then need to be trained on the digital signage content management system. 

    Accessing and Managing Your Sign

    Training and Sign Access ›

    In order to gain access to a new or current sign, you must first undergo training on the campus digital signage content management system. While we are in the process of transitioning to our new system, all trainings have been postponed; however, if you’re interested in being trained after the implementation is complete, or in adding a new sign, please email us at webmaster@tntech.edu so that we can include you in communications and ensure you have access to training when trainings resume.
