Appspace is the enterprise digital signage solution for SMU. The Appspace console is used to manage content on the various digital displays around campus. Each display is connected to a Player PC or managed device. Individuals with access to the Appspace system can upload content via the appspace.smu website and create a sign application for their managed device. This sign 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 digital signage displays or adding new displays to Appspace will need to submit the web form located at help.smu.edu. OIT has purchased a site license for the Appspace player software. Departments are responsible for the cost of the display, the Player PC, and any incurred expenses for mounting of the signage.
Access to Appspace.SMU may be requested by a supervisor at help.smu.edu. Once a user is added to the system, they will be sent an invitation from the Appspace server granting access. Once they receive the email, they will be asked to accept the invitation. The user will need to click on the unique link in the email to activate their account.
The new Appspace uses your SMU ID and password for the login. The SMU ID is prefaced by “smu\” for the username (for example, smu\12345678) and the password will be the regular SMU password.
