Digital Signage (Four Winds Interactive – FWI Cloud)

Digital signage enables FSU departments to share information about everything from upcoming events to university emergency notifications with targeted audiences across campus. Wall-mounted LED screens, controlled by a small computing device, can be installed in campus buildings and public spaces. Departments can independently manage their digital signs and customize content through a single console, then choose to display the content on one or more displays. Digital signage, powered by Four Winds Interactive, offers a variety of uses, including video walls, interactive kiosks, department directories and more. 

  • Single console | departments can independently manage signs and content through one console  
  • Scheduling | decide when and where your ads will display with scheduling and playback controls  
  • Ad templates | pre-built templates produce stunning digital ads with no graphic design experience  
  • Mobile app | update signs on the fly from the mobile device app 
  • FSU-branded | provides unified branding for digital signage across FSU
