Digital Signage

The University of Maryland digital signage standard is “Nexus On-Demand” which enables individuals with access to the system to post messages specifically intended for school or department audiences, and/or for the University community at-large. 

Public safety personnel will have system access to post important and critical broadcasts to the University community. All informational postings handled by communications personnel will use this digital signage standard.   This system is backwards compatible with all existing Cisco digital signage equipment.
