Digital Signage: GP College Deploys Web-Based Communications System

Georgia Perimeter College in Atlanta has deployed a Web-based visual communications platform from Visix, AxisTV, to enhance messaging to students on four of its sites. The technology is being used to narrowcast messages to large-screen LCD displays in its Newton County, Clarkston, Decatur, and Dunwoody locations.

"AxisTV has helped us to cut printing costs and has increased efficiencies, since the built-in scheduling function automatically removes notices without further user intervention," said Glenn Sierko, assistant director of classroom and event technologies at GPC earlier this month.

AxisTV provides a Web interface for remote administration of content to be delivered, including scheduling and the creation of content to be delivered. GPC is using nine Visix Channel Players in thirteen buildings to deliver content, which can include everything from student schedules to weather alerts to emergency communications.

Georgia Perimeter College serves 21,000 students on four sites and is the third-largest institution in the University of Georgia system.
