Project Description


When administrators at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS, decided to strengthen the sense of community among students and faculty at the university, they decided digital signage was a great place to start.

With help from Keywest Technology, K-State installed several portrait- oriented digital signs around its Student Union to update the student body on campus news, cancelled classes, drop dates, the fortunes of its NCAA Division I football and basketball programs and other information.

The university is relying on Keywest Technology’s MediaXtreme media server using the company’s Enterprise InfoZone software to split the portrait screens into different zones devoted to video, graphics and text. Using the system’s data acquisition capabilities, K-State is able to extract .txt file information from various computer files and automatically display it as digital signage-formatted text on its displays.
