Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives is developing an application to generate content for Digital Displays by extracting multimedia and event details from EMu and transmitting it via Wi-Fi to Displays across the organisation’s various sites.
Mark Pajak, who is leading development of the signage application, believes that it will be used by staff seeking to publish details about events, and users who need to access information about timings and the location of events, although it may also be used to display messages from sponsors or front of house staff.
A new tab was designed for the EMu Events module to hold details for display on the Digital Displays. The new tab brings together all the fields used to manage and display sign data.
You can find greater detail about the project in Mark’s article Developing a Prototype Digital Signage Application.
