We have begun working with Appspace to migrate sign content to the cloud. Any updates to your digital sign(s) after Noon on November 7, 2018, will not appear on the cloud version and will need to be redone after the migration is complete.

As many of you are well aware, the license for our Appspace digital signage expires at the end of this month. In reviewing the usage of digital signage on campus and the expense of support and maintaining the on-premises server, it was decided that moving to Appspace’s cloud environment would be not only more cost-effective but also provide more benefits to the campus, such as our digital signage environment being always up-to-date with the latest features and not requiring Adobe Flash. We have received an extension to our on-premise Appspace to allow time for the move.
We would like to take a moment and update you on our Appspace Digital Signage Upgrade Project.
In July, we completed the server upgrade and hosted a webinar on What’s new in Appspace 6. If you missed the webinar, a recording is available by clicking the link below. Continue reading Appspace Digital Signage Update: September 2018

As a reminder, our switchover to the new Appspace (formerly known as Nexus On-Demand) server for the campus digital signs begins this week.

Feel free to switch off your digital sign(s) for the day if this will be an issue. Your scheduled day for the switch can be found at blog.smu.edu/itconnect/2016/09/02/appspace-v5-8-now-available-digital-signage/ Continue reading Appspace switchover starts today (09/06/2016)
