2.3. Display Monitors

The display monitors allow the School to schedule and display messages on television screens at various locations. These monitor hardware is supported by IT; message scheduling and approval is supported by the School's Office of Communications.


SUMMARY: If your ad is for an event, please submit it to the School's event calendars so it gets on the production queue for promotions, including the display monitor. If it is a non-event message, please submit necessary message and scheduling information to communications@business.uconn.edu.  Users are encouraged to submit their own ads if they'd like to keep their event/entity branding and to ensure that an ad is created, since ad creation is based on the production queue.

Requesting an ad be created for you


Display monitor ads are created by the Office of Communications as the production queue allows. If your ad is to promote an event, please first submit that event to the School's event calendars. It will then be added to the production queue.  If your ad is not event-specific (e.g., welcoming a guest to the building, notice, news item), please submit relevant information to create and schedule the ad to communications@business.uconn.edu.




The scrolling tickers are driven by RSS feeds. If there is a specific RSS feed you would like included, please email communications@business.uconn.edu to discuss.






If you have an inquiry not addressed here, require help with the technical specifications, or would like to request a display monitor ad designed for your message, please email communications@business.uconn.edu.
