This article describes a whole new way to communicate news and information to students and other campus members. The College of Business Administration at Creighton University (Nebraska), which has close to 900 students and provides instruction in everything from economics and finance to entrepreneurship and marketing, recently installed four 40-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) screens from NEC, in prominent areas of its main facility. The goal: to make campus information and news from Wall Street more accessible on a regular basis. The screens provide news, weather, and market updates to students as they move between classes, revolutionizing the way the school communicates with students overall. Insiders call the approach "digital signage," and hail it as the future of communication. Logistically speaking, the technology mixes LCD hardware with software that facilitates updates over existing IP communications networks. From a practical perspective, it enables users to be better informed, and allows school officials to deliver information more quickly than ever before.
