Digital Signage Guidelines

Digital signage managed by Georgia State University serves as a visual communication medium to inform students, faculty, staff, and visitors about the University, specific departments, GSU sponsored events, etc.

Information displayed includes (but is not limited to): programs, meetings and activities; up-to-date weather information; campus news; television feeds; important current events; campus facts and emergency messages.

Content displayed on screens is governed by the Georgia State University Identity and Communications Toolkit. and according to privacy guidelines that are developed for Georgia State University. Every screen is required to be connected to GSU’s emergency notification system (RAVE). In the event of an emergency, important information will automatically be displayed on applicable screens. At the end of the emergency, normal content will resume.
