Founded in 1906, the university has six colleges and offers more than 40 undergraduate and graduate degrees. The campus sits on 675 acres and has a total undergraduate enrollment of 13,399.
The school’s digital signage network is spread amongst six health sciences buildings and is powered by the Mvix software to display announcements, event listings, and building directories.
Eastern Kentucky University was looking for a way to streamline its communication and effectively communicate with students and staff.
They need a solution that would:
- optimize the costs associated with updating communications
- effectively communicate with students to increase participation in school activities
- update static building directories to add aesthetic appeal
- improve and modernize the campus experience
Eastern Kentucky University implemented nine screens within six of its College of Health Science buildings. These digital signs streamlined and modernized the university’s communication strategy.
The Mvix platform provided:
- remote access – staff members can update their campus displays remotely from any location
- content-rich software – the school had access to over 150 content apps to display content that auto-updates
- advanced content scheduling – content creators can schedule content in advance for “set it and forget it” programming
- multi-user access users – having multiple users with different permissions made collaboration easy
Eastern Kentucky University’s campus experience greatly improved with digital signage.
“Mvix provided an innovative way to bring solidarity to our college. The adaptable features of their digital signage platform made it easy to create a steady stream of essential information to our EKU community,” said Jagger Coffey, Technology Resource Manager at Eastern Kentucky University.
The Mvix platform allowed Eastern Kentucky University to:
- communicate better with students, staff, and visitors and ensure they are well-informed
- quickly and efficiently distribute their announcements
- increase student participation in school events
- enhance their campus experience
