We recently integrated a digital signage management system for the Kenton County Public Library system in northern Kentucky. The project included a content management system to allow the library staff to create or upload media and schedule that content for individual screens across all of their branch locations. The browser based tools allow for setting content via a scheduling tool to push out media to each screen at a chosen time.
The energy efficient commercial grade LCD screens can be set to automatically turn on and off when the library opens and closes and they have smart cooling systems to help preserve their lifespan. Each screen has a networked player appliance that receives the content from the digital media server and outputs it to the screen as scheduled.
This is another example of how to digitally communicate with a broad audience and cut down on the time to deliver content versus the traditional printed methods. Digital signage is often used for museums, retail and corporate communications. Libraries are an excellent place to communicate to the local community and keep them informed of local and regional events as well as news, weather and library related topics such as the NY Times Best sellers list.
