The University of Greenwich has 3 campuses in south-east London and north Kent. These are located at Greenwich in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, in Avery Hill and Medway.
The University wanted a way to show information to staff and visitors across all three campuses to give staff & students a much better idea of what is going on elsewhere on other campuses and so feel much more involved.
Historically communications for staff and students have taken the form of traditional printed posters and leaflets. The Service Development & Communications team realised that digital signage would fulfil the University's requirements for better communications, and having selected ONELAN, are testing it and gradually rolling it out across the University.
The Service Development & Communications team currently manages the digital signage content, but as the system evolves, this will be delegated to other individuals across the three campuses.
The University has a ONELAN Content Management System (CMS) and a ONELAN 4K player driving a 3 × 2 video wall in the main reception at Greenwich. Different zones display bus and train updates, students' work and event information. An RSS feed at the bottom shows BBC news.
There are also two other screens within the building showing department specific information, and that will in future be able to show data extracted from the University's website.
