Delaware’s Capital School District serves 7 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school with a staff of just over 1,000.
Majority of the school-going children grew up playing computer games, using camera phones, and viewing YouTube videos. They have become habituated to interacting with technology on a daily basis. Digital imagery, which includes video and images, is largely their medium of choice for communication. Therefore, it only makes sense that school administrators incorporate these media into their communication solutions. Delaware’s Capital School District goal is to educate, inform, notify, and alert their students and needed an effective way to do this.
Deployment & Usage
The Capital School District Office of Technology spent over 6 months evaluating a dozen different providers before selecting Mvix. The turnkey project was implemented leveraging Mvix’s digital signage solution, bundled with its free, web-based software. The solution provides a centralized, cloud-based network that can be managed from any location while eliminating the need for onsite storage servers. This is an unparalleled medium that is helping school administrators facilitate their message easily and efficiently with maximum impact.
Why It Worked
“Mvix’s digital signage system has zoned templates which provide the flexibility of displaying multiple media content on the same screen,” added Kyle Baxter, the Capital School District’s Systems Administrator. The signs are able to display announcements as a scrolling text ticker, show the weather, a listing of events and a building directory all on the same screen, at the same time. Many institutions are also integrating digital signage into their emergency notification system. The administrators have the ability to override normal content. Additionally, they can project attention-grabbing displays to announce an emergency and provide clear instructions about how building occupants should respond.
“Mvix’s systems are very easy to use. They have a very intuitive interface that is easy to navigate, with a low learning curve,” said Kyle. “They are also very cost-effective and offer a superior product with no contract or subscription fees!” Mvix’s systems also have a multi-user platform. This allows role-based permissions to be assigned for each functional group of the district. While the district administrators control the overall network, certain tasks, such as content creation and scheduling, are delegated to the individual school administrators. The web-based portal also enables remote access/control from any location with web access.
