AppSpace, by Nexus, is the enterprise application designer controlling content on the various digital displays around campus. Each display is connected to a player device (mini computer). Individuals with access to the system will upload content via a website and create an application for their managed device. This application can be configured to cycle through a series of dynamic and static content-- all of which can easily be updated via the web.
Requesting New Digital Signage
Departments interested in joining existing displays or adding new displays to the Enterprise Display solution will need to submit the webform located at help.smu.edu. OIT has purchased a site license for the player software. Departments will be responsible for the cost of the display and the player device.
Recommendations and requirements for these devices will be posted soon.
There are two basic levels of permissions that can be assigned to individuals: Basic user and Content Administrator.
A basic user would have access to the media library only. This allows them to build graphics and upload them to the network media library only. They would not be able to build or manipulate the applications that actually display on the player.
An individual with Content Administrator permissions, would be able to modify existing applications, add new templates, and delete content if needed.
