Warren County Community College

Motivates supporters with project that “you can see and touch”…
WASHINGTON, N.J. – Sept. 18, 2007 – Warren County Community College (WCCC) has installed a digital signage system from StrandVision LLC to keep students abreast of college news and inform campus visitors. The system, which was funded through grants, uses LCD television displays in the lobby, lounge and dining areas.
College administrators recognize that communications is vital to the college community. Explained Lamont Rouse, director of institutional research & grants, “It‘s not just for students; we have a lot of visitors to the campus. The system allows us to promote our brand identity and you just can‘t do enough of that. So, each time someone comes through our front door, we have an opportunity to communicate with them.”

The StrandVision digital signage system is subscription-based and relatively inexpensive. In-house facilities and information technology staff helped keep costs down by handling the installation. Commented Jeremy Beeler, WCCC registrar, “We had several people on campus working on the project. Our facilities and IT departments worked together to get the system up and running and I did the design setup with the StrandVision software. We spread the load about a bit.”
StrandVision’s innovative approach to digital signage is ideal for colleges and any organization that requires timely information distribution. It is an Internet-based service that connects to televisions, LCD or plasma screens via cable television or computer networks. The WCCC system is managed by Beeler who logs onto his StrandVision administrator console over the Internet. He regularly updates the content and uses innovative features, such as embedded videos, as well as slides that count down by the minute to special happenings, such as the beginning of the fall semester.

Now, as the college moves into its fall semester, the digital signage system is fully operational. “I‘m very happy with the system. It‘s effective, it‘s easy to use, it‘s convenient,” concluded Beeler.
