You may notice the team in the windows environment doing the manual updates to your digital sign. Unfortunately, these changes cannot be completed behind the scenes. 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)

Appspace Digital Signage to be Upgraded

AppspaceDuring the week of April 18, OIT will upgrade the Appspace (formerly Nexus) software that runs the various digital displays on campus.  The upgrade process is quite involved as we will move to new server hardware during the process. There are also several significant changes to the software as we upgrade to the latest version.

Anyone who currently has access to edit content in the digital signage system (digitalsigns.smu.edu) will receive direct communication throughout the project as well as an invitation to training once the upgrade is complete.

The following is a rough timeline of the upgrade project:

  • April 18: upgrade begins.  The current system will remain online.  Users can make changes as needed throughout the week. However, these changes will not be transferred to the new system.
  • April 25:  New system goes live.  Content owner will be invited to a training session that week.
