Digital Signage is one of the most flexible ways to communicate with your community.
The BCNET Digital Signage service is a low-cost, member-operated, comprehensive service that simply, efficiently and cost effectively delivers a multimedia content solution for flat panel displays.
Through our member partners, we offer an all-inclusive, shared service solution that provides a common place to host Digital Signage using EduCloud Server, as well as shared network and security infrastructure, system administration support, customer service and training.
Digital Signage leverages a single, pre-negotiated BCNET enterprise license of Haivision’s CoolSign Software to run the service for all members. The enterprise license helps eliminate duplication of licenses and lowers cost of use.
Cost effective shared solutions
Offers significant cost reductions, efficiencies and economies of scale by utilizing shared infrastructure, common licensing, operation, management and support.
Simple, shared, software platform to create, manage and publish content on digital signs. A powerful administrative tool for control, automation and data integration. It makes planning, scheduling, distributing and monitoring media content across your network simple and easy.

A simplified web-based content management interface extends individual screen content control to specific front line users, minimizing reliance on signage administrators.
