Tech Tip: New Digital Signage Form

ITS’ digital signs are one of the best ways to promote your event to the campus community. Now, ITS has a new streamlined process for the submission of digital signage requests. Instead of emailing the Help Desk, you should now fill out the form on Jayweb. There is a page for students, one for faculty, and one for staff (note: you will need to be signed in to view the page). 

Signs must be requested on behalf of a department or student group. You are limited to one slide displaying at a time. Slides can only be displayed for one week. 

Make sure that your digital sign submission follows these rules, as ITS may deny your request if it does not comply. 

  • Format: 1920 x 1080 px (16:9 ratio). Images should be a .png file, and videos should be .mp4.  
  • Hierarchy: most important information at the top, details, dates, and times underneath.  
  • Background: use gradients or a solid color for readability. 
  • Font: use an easy to read font, not thin or cursive. Make sure that it shows up well against the background. 

Lastly, make sure to keep your sign simple: it should be readable in under 10 seconds.
