Broome Community College Updates Image and Communications Capabilities with Digital Signage

This digital signage network delivers important information to students and faculty in a timely fashion while also functioning as an emergency notification system. Scala Certified Partner Imperatives Inc. implemented the solution.

When Broome Community College went on a mission to create an informative network for its students that would also modernize its image, it knew digital signage was the answer. The school needed a network that could quickly deliver important information to students and faculty, and also function as an emergency notification system. Broome Community College turned to Scala Certified Partner Imperatives Inc. to design an integrated digital network to meet these requirements.

“Broome Community College’s Department of Information Technology Services was searching for a digital network that could be up and running immediately, and that would provide options for expansion and scalability,” said Jan Metzger, President of Imperatives. “Scala was chosen to provide the software for this project because it is the most reliable and flexible on the market.”

The new network, which went live in November 2010, spans seven LG displays located in five buildings across campus — the cafeteria, business center, library and two classroom buildings. The network communicates relevant student and community information, including upcoming events, job postings, library and help desk hours, registration information and social media.

Along with the LG monitors, Imperatives installed five player systems, one for each building. It also trained college personnel on how to use the new Scala software.

“Our installation, implementation and usage were immediate and seamless,” said Stephen Boyd, A/V Services Manager at Broome Community College. “The user interface and configuration settings are intuitive and incorporate state-of-the-art design. The digital signage concept and delivery method has made an impressive contribution to our college campus community.”
