Catalog excerpts

Digital Signage in Education & The Benefits of an LCD Enclosure Screens have become a common part of our everyday life. From train stations, to bus stops, to shopping centers; we’re now used to seeing them everywhere we go. Generally, there are three main uses for these screens. The first is to advertise, the second is to entertain, and the third is to educate. Screens can be used to educate us in many different ways. Simply imparting information such as film times or waiting times is one example of this, but often screens seek to do more than just that. More and more, screens are being used for digital signage in education environments, to make sure that students are still learning, even when their teachers aren’t on hand. Why are Screens Needed for Digital Signage in Education? If you’ve ever worked in education, you’ll know just how much information needs to be shared on a daily basis. Whether a nursery school, primary, secondary, college or even university, administrators working in this sort of environment need to be able to get information out quickly and effectively. Digital screens are the ideal way to do this. Sharing information in this way is cheaper than using the postal service, and less time consuming than doing it via email. When there’s new information that needs to be shared, such as exam dates or timetable changes, the information can be added to the screens very quickly, using easy to use software on a central computer.
