تعمل Navori QL على تشغيل شبكة الإشارات الرقمية لجامعة سانتا كلارا

بنية مرنة ، ومرئيات أكثر ثراءً وتكامل البيانات ، والتكامل المتوقع مع نظام إعلام الطوارئ بالحرم الجامعي ، مما يجعل QL بعيدًا عن المنافسة

لوزان ، سويسرا ، 8 يناير 2019 – As universities and higher education institutions seek to expand the horizons of their digital signage networks, many have discovered the campus-wide communications and media limitations of their first-generation systems. This was the case at Santa Clara University in northern California, which upgraded to Navori’s QL لبرامج الإشارات الرقمية قبل خريف 2018 ربع. عملت الترقية في آنٍ واحد على تبسيط العمليات وتمكين خدمات وفرص جديدة عبر الشبكة المكونة من 80 شاشة.

Navori QL is a cloud or on-premise solution – Santa Clara opted for the centralized cloud deployment – that offers a flexible multi-seat architecture for campus-wide networks. That multi-seat flexibility was a key deciding factor for the 24 content managers contributing to the 80-screen network, which has a presence in almost every building on campus. The high-quality reproduction of 4K graphics and other visual content, along with general ease of use, competitive pricing and rich data integration, further set Navori apart from other vendors competing for the project.

“Our previous system was out of date, and it couldn’t accommodate the more specialized initiatives we wanted to launch,” said Elwood Mills, manager of SCU سيكون جاهزا للعمل, Santa Clara University. With responsibilities that include network maintenance, Mills grew increasingly frustrated with the previous system’s lack of reliability. “Connectivity issues with the servers continued to escalate, which often meant that random screens would remain blank for hours or days at a time.”

Mills often handles the editing and dissemination of content contributed from the 24 managers. While much of this content is distributed campus-wide, specialized slides are often created for certain departments, including the School of Engineering. Nicole Morales, director of digital media technologies for the School of Engineering, notes that Navori QL’s ease of use and richer data capabilities have made an enormous difference throughout the department.

“I have seven screens under my control across four buildings, and we do a lot of our own content creation across faculty and student organizations,” said Morales. “With our previous system, it would take up to 15 minutes for screens to refresh when new content was uploaded. Navori has eliminated the problems we were having with reliability in content delivery, which means the information we post about classes and events can go live with short notice. Navori also allows us to securely use outside URLs, and integrate live feeds from our different social media networks through the external Tagboard service. We’ve been able to drive a much higher degree of interaction with our social media feeds through digital signage.”

Customer comments

Ali Reimer, assistant director of marketing and communications for the Leavey School of Business, manages the digital screens that live within Lucas Hall. She notes that the screens have become a central communications platform to promote events and course information to business students and visitors, and promote faculty members and their research projects among other initiatives.

قال رايمر: "لدينا حوالي 15 شاشة منتشرة في جميع أنحاء لوكاس هول ، وتعني قدرة Navori على تعدد المستخدمين أنه يمكننا التركيز بالضبط على احتياجات أقسامنا ومراكزنا وتوجيه هذه الاستراتيجية محليًا". "تجعل Navori من السهل جدًا إنشاء قوائم تشغيل مختلفة لجماهير مختلفة على مدار اليوم ، يتم توقيتها لبدء البث المباشر بناءً على وقت تواجد هؤلاء الجمهور في المبنى. إنه يوفر منصة متسقة وموثوقة ومثيرة للإعجاب من الناحية المرئية للتسويق لكل من الطلاب الحاليين والمحتملين ، ويسمح لنا بخلاف ذلك بإيصال الرسائل المحددة التي نهدف إلى توصيلها. "

يضيف Reimer أن Navori QL قد حسّن أيضًا الجودة المرئية عبر الشبكة لكل من محتوى 4K و 1080 p. لقد كانت تستكشف العديد من خيارات القوالب المختلفة لعروض الصور والمناظر الطبيعية في قسمها ، وكانت تدمج تدريجياً المزيد من المؤشرات لتطوير تجربة أكثر شمولاً.

Moving forward, Mills expects to extend the network to new buildings currently being planned or that are already under construction. He also is working with Navori to integrate the campus emergency notification system with the شبكة الإشارات الرقمية, using the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). Once live, the integration will provide a digital format to disseminate emergency messages simultaneously over the Navori QL network and other communications systems around campus.

"تضفي اللافتات الرقمية قيمة كبيرة على حياة الحرم الجامعي, from general communications and marketing through to campus safety and security,” said Mills. “Navori has made life easier for everyone involved in the network, while also breathing new life into our content and messaging. We no longer have to rotate through three or four screens to manage content. The ease of use of QL is what really sells. الإشارات الرقمية is no longer time-consuming. ”
