How digital signage works

All displays are on a network connected to a central server to be able to easily synchronize content. Displays can be installed on any campus throughout the University of Minnesota system, along with off-campus facilities such as research stations or outreach centers.

  • The layout of information that appears on each display is customizable, allowing displays to be configured to support your content strategy and appearance preferences.

  • The content appearing on displays can be uploaded and managed from anywhere via the website Carousel Frontdoor. Permission and approval levels are built into the system.

  • Both picture and video with sound can be displayed.

  • On each system campus, Emergency Management has override access.
