Meadows Digital Signs
Meadows has a 10-screen video wall in the lobby of the Bob Hope Theatre in the Owen Arts Center. The video wall is available for students and faculty to display their projects and work as well as to promote events. We have also recently added a 5-screen video wall in the lobby of the Umphrey Lee Center.
Users are encouraged to get creative with designs, and use all 10 of the monitors to display content. A single design can hold any number of layered or unlayered individual pieces of content. For instance, a design could comprise of a video over the first three monitors and the last three monitors with a JPG in between that describe the videos. (Videos work best as spanning three monitors.) More simple designs can also be effective, such as a single JPG that spans the entire width of the monitors. Download the Meadows Photo Submission Guidelines (PDF).
The signs are treated as a single canvas for content - much like a Power Point design. The total resolution of the Owen Arts Center bank of signs is 7680 pixels wide by 1360 pixels high. Each individual monitor is 768px x 1360px - but content can span any number of monitors.
A monitor bezel exists between each monitor, which provides natural breaks to content. When building a design with multiple pieces of content, it's best to break the content along those seams. When possible, words within a design should also have spaces along the seams for maximum readability.
If you have work you would like displayed or an event you would like promoted, but do not have the graphic design resources for a custom design, the Marketing Department can place the content into a template for display.
Submit your content, ask questions, or begin a conversation about a custom content set on the video wall by contacting the Marketing Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
