Charlottetown, PE—June 2, 2010
MANITOWOC, WI and CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – June 2, 2010 – The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc is one of the 13 campuses of the University of Wisconsin Colleges, which are part of the 26 campus UW System. ScreenScape will deliver content that highlights current and upcoming events, activities, sponsorships, student accomplishments and general university information.
Cristi Beringer, Instructional Technology Manager at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc commented, “We have been struggling with a home-grown version of digital signage running MS-PowerPoint™ on a few TV’s around campus. We needed something that was more automated and more interactive with live news feeds, but we had a very limited budget. Other solutions we’ve looked at were too expensive and difficult to use. We find ScreenScape easy to use and are very excited about sharing this with other sites including our other campus locations.”
ScreenScape’s network architecture allows the university to distribute their core message to each of the various locations on campus, while allowing specialized content and creative control over the screens to various organizations around campus.
Beringer continued, “We have 26 campuses under the University of Wisconsin system. There’s a huge advantage for us to share content and collaborate across our campus landscape, while still allowing each site to include localized content. For example, we have 4 year schools that offer programs of interest to students at our 2 year freshman-sophomore schools. ScreenScape allows us to create a dynamic platform to reach the student body with this type of message.”
“ScreenScape’s Internet-based approach will make it easy for the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc to create a network of intelligent screen displays across campus and throughout their extended community. Cristi’s enthusiasm for our service and community, after having evaluated other approaches, validates the ScreenScape model. Ours is a low-cost and easy-to-use solution that just wasn’t available before now in the digital signage industry.” remarked Kevin Dwyer, CEO and President of ScreenScape.
