Digital Signage

There are flat-screen TVs that display digital signage information on campus. The Office of College Relations and Marketing and ACCTV maintains the content of these digital signage TVs and approves what can go on the signage.

Advertise your campus event or activity

If you are a department of the college providing events, activities, or services for students, you can apply to have a slide for your event or activities added to the digital signage playlist. Currently, we do NOT advertise, promote, or post outside events or non-ACC related content to keep the signage system streamlined with essential communications and information that is helpful for students, faculty, and staff.

What You Need to Do

  • 1. Read the digital signage guidelines
    • These playlist images can be submitted to OCRM for approval via the digital signage contact Chuck Cruse (rcruse@austincc.edu). If OCRM doesn't approve the image, OCRM will send back notes on how to adjust the image per our guidelines so that the signage is in the best format to be read and looks cohesive with the other images in the playlist.
      The slide’s duration in the playlist will be 10 seconds.
      All slides must be associated with college operations, academic areas, or student services.
      Slides can appear in playlists for up to three weeks per semester and up to two weeks in advance of an event.

  • 2. Create your slideshow image
    • Image requirements:
      JPG image format (we can also accept PNGs)
      Dimensions: 1920px x 1080px
      Image size under 300 KBs.
      Landscape-oriented.

      Design Guidelines:
      Design an image to be read from 10 feet away. So large fonts are best.
      Be concise: Maximum 3 lines of text, with 5 words or less, or 5 lines of text with 3 words or less.
      Use sans-serif fonts. Verdana, Helvetica, and Arial are good choices.
      Use two fonts or less in the design. Italicize rarely.
      Text color should be in good contrast with the background.
      For events include ‘call to action’ info such as date, place, contact email and/or a short URL for more information. QR codes are popular now as well to use here.

      If you need some sample slides for inspiration, we are happy to share them as requested.

  • 3. Submitting your slideshow image
    • Slides must be submitted at least 10 days before the desired playlist start time.
      The maximum play duration of each slide will be either 3 weeks, or until the advertised event is complete, whichever comes first.
