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.
