Reach 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.
- Getting Digital Signage for Your Area
If your department is interested in learning more about the digital sign platform and what it might do for you, please set up a meeting with Communications & Marketing. During this meeting, we would discuss needs for a sign, possible content, location, and who will be managing it. Fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page, or reach out to the Web & Digital Media team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 Reach content management system.
