Digital Signage in the library
Posted by gazjjohnson on 24 September, 2008
Just come out of a very useful hour with Richard Mobbs and the rest of the Digital Signage Group, where he took us through the user interface for the new signs in the DWL. I’m pleased to say it looks like it’s going to be very easy on a technical front to update these with new information, easier to use than the Rooms2 design interface certainly.
I think whilst there’s a potential for a while lot more that we could do with the screens we’ll be sticking with text and image for now (with a hint of RSS); though it looks like we could handily redisplay webpages. However, our webpages might not be designed right for the display aspect or format; so we may need to re-do them in Plone. Doubtless the Digital Signage group and Jo will be discussing all this very soon.
