Request a New Digital Sign

Authors list

Brown has an enterprise digital signage system on campus.  Departments manage their own signs and content but the underlying system is managed by OIT. To start the process of setting up a digital sign for your department, email We’ve included detailed information which explains the service on-boarding process as well as ongoing support and management of this service.

Informational Meeting

If you’re interested in adding a sign to your department, contact us at We’ll set up a meeting (preferably in the future location of the sign) to understand your objectives and gather the information needed for a price quote. 

Associated Costs

CIS pays for the digital signage software and servers to run that software. However, there are some costs associated with setting up a new sign. These one-time costs* include:

  • Purchasing and installing the TV (if one is not already there) and sign player
  • If applicable, running power to the sign location
  • If applicable, installing a network connection at the sign location

*pricing available upon request 


Management and Access

If you already have a sign but need access to post content, you can submit a Computing Accounts Access Request Form and choose Digital Signage from the list of applications.

Support and Resources

As your sign is set up, you will also want to familiarize yourself with the system - a good place to start is the article Get Started with Digital Signage. We also urge you to read Brown's Digital Signage Protocol and Best Practices documentation before creating content.
