Education use Digital Signage to improve communication and security with students and staff

Colleges, universities and schools are public places where the organization in charge constantly needs to communicate with the students. Screens are used as the communications medium for their versatility and their ability to display data in real time.

Digital signage software manages digital communication in any physical space. The size of screen used varies depending on it’s distance from the eyes of your audience. LCD technology may be used for distances of less than 30 feet, while larger LED displays may be used for a viewing distance of 10 meters away or more. Screens are usually installed in spaces such as corridors, common areas or cafeterias.

The site is usually divided into departments. Each screen displays content specifically for its department combined with more generic content for the organization as a whole. Staff work together to create content and programs each at their own level. Professional digital signage software such as Navori QL is designed for this type of collaborative content management effort

Digital Signage in University of Argentina

Digital signage for school communications will be easily managed. QL is extremely versatile, user-friendly and secure. This is why so many educational institutions rely on it for all of their screen-based communications. Here’s how our digital signage works:

Content shown on screen

Any type of content may be created: images, videos, presentations, websites, video streaming or templates containing real-time data. For example, news from RSS media, weather forecasts or sports news in images. With practice, staff can also simply create PowerPoint animations for immediate display.

Restaurant within education facilities

The school cafeteria can use a digital menu board to display the day’s menus. With practice, cooks can take photos of the dishes of the day using QL mobile manager to display them immediately.

Classroom and amphitheater occupation

Navori QL digital signage software can also connect to Microsoft Office Calendar to collect data on room occupancy and display it in real time, to guide students to their classes without losing time.

Enforce sanitary prevention

During the pandemic, universities have been placing a screen fitted with a camera at the entry to classrooms. Using the Navori QL Access Control module, the camera counts entries and exits and the screen indicates to students whether they can enter or need to wait to ensure that the maximum capacity of the room is not exceeded. The module also checks whether each student is wearing a mask.

Alert evacuation - CAP

Digital signage is also used to manage dissemination of warnings and evacuation notices in the event of an emergency. Navori QL digital signage software is compatible with warnings in the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) format. QL is also compatible with building-specific evacuation systems and fire warnings. Finally, in an emergency the QL Manager mobile application allows alarms to be triggered from a smartphone. In short, digital signage can also be used to improve the safety of any building or on-campus facility.

Computer vision analytics

Aquaji, Navori’s computer vision software is used to identify the use of different areas in buildings, counting the number of students and their length of stay.

The largest universities and colleges use Navori QL to communicate with their students via screens.
