St Joseph's School is a Catholic College in Swindon with 1200 students and 200 staff.
What was required
The College wanted to invest in digital signage to show regular information and events for students and parents. It also wanted it to reinforce the branding of the college.
Several different solutions were investigated with the ONELAN solution being selected as the most competitive and comprehensive.
What is installed
St Joseph's School has a ONELAN Net-top-box (NTB) 5500 player that publishes content to seven ONELAN NTB 650 players. These drive ten LED screens located throughout communal areas in the building, showing content relevant to the specific location.
The digital signage was installed by Hugh Symons, and is managed by the College's IT team. Various sources are used to update text feeds, including ONELAN's Ad-hoc capability, and Twitter. This enables access for different people wishing to provide input.
End result - end user assessment of value and effectiveness of the project
Overall, the new signage is tied in with the College branding, which looks much more effective than before. The College has a video wall of four LED screens which looks impressive, and which runs at 1080p to provide a lovely sharp image.
