Digital Signage is fast becoming a standard in many educational facilities. From K-12 to trade schools both public and private to the University System, the dissemination of information via video is very common. New schools are often wired for network connectivity and existing locations are being upgraded.

In the K-12 market space, Digital Signage is usually run over an existing cable TV network. Cable companies are often very open to working with schools and providing them with the required bandwidth so that they can have their own channel. Sometimes this channel is only broadcast within the walls of the facility and other times it is a channel that goes out into the broader community. Education channels serve a good purpose by providing an outlet to communicate messages to students and the broader community. Often classes in video production will be taught in the K-12 system and the student-produced videos can be broadcast on that channel. During inclement weather or other school emergencies, a channel provides a source of timely information. Bus schedule changes or school closures due to winter storms are common examples.

At the college campus level, Digital Signage is often used in common areas such as the student union or in specific departments. Often these types of deployments will include Plasma or LCD displays with VGA over Cat 5 solutions put in place to distribute the video signal. A University with a great number of meeting or calendar events might interface a Digital Signage System with a database of campus events. These events, which are already in a database format such as SQL, XML, .TXT, or Excel can be pulled automatically, formatted and displayed as part of a the screen. This database interface is a major saver. It allows for the dissemination of time sensitive information via a Digital Signage installation without requiring duplicate data entry.
