CLIENT

The University of Kent teaches over 15,800 students on its Canterbury campus and has recently celebrated its fifty year anniversary.

With national recognition for research intensity, and the provision of an exceptional student experience, the university approaches the next 50 ears with confidence and ambition.

ASSESS

Its Templeman Library has undergone a major redevelopment recently, transforming it into a leading 21 st Century facility incorporating books, study space, computers, and other learning resources. A digital screen and signage strategy were very much part of that metamorphosis.

University of Kent needed a simple to use Digital Signage solution that gave them hardware flexibility to put displays in a variety of library locations and to integrate with internal systems to show live PC availability data. They also wanted to use the same system to deliver key information and wayfinding in the newly developed Maths department building.

INSTALL

Wayfinding

“Navigating around the large 15,000sqm space for up to 9000 visitors a day can be a challenge, so digital signage was employed to aid navigation across the four floors – helping students find a computer to use, books or space to study in. Some screens are also used for room availability and promoting events/services to library users.”. – Julia Crompton, Marketing Manager, Templeman Library, University of Kent.

Multiple Uses

The screens are installed in a variety of environments including landscape kiosk enclosures, portrait totems, wall mounted portrait enclosures and room booking housings outside study rooms.

Hardware

Eclipse Digital worked with University of Kent throughout the entire project and supplied a digital signage network consisting of over 35 Samsung Smart Signage Platform displays in a variety of sizes, paired with the cloud based digital signage software embed signage.

RESULTS

“Eclipse Digital Media provided us with the full digital signage solution from the initial concept meetings right through to installation and ongoing support. The embed signage software we’ve been provided has allowed us to manage digital screen content simply from a cloud-based, reliable and secure portal. We can be innovative and flexible in the types of information shown including film and website feeds, scheduling screens with ease. Students have found the improved information helpful. Eclipse Digital Media have always been on hand to give training and advice throughout the installation and beyond.”

RESULTS

“The signage has definitely been successful… we have found that we have had excellent feedback from staff and students, students in particular enjoy being able to share their work on the screens. For example during our Summer Degree Shows, where graduating students show their work to the public, the screens were used to give a flavour of the work on offer and show moving image work and also to promote time specific performance pieces and provide further links to social media which encouraged engagement from visitors.

It is very possible that we will install more screens in common areas at Chelsea College of Arts in the future to further improve internal comms and engagement.”
