IPTV Case Studies
Marshland High School
Marshland High School is a Specialist Science College for 12-15 year olds. The school wanted to install TV screens about the school campus as a means of communicating with both students and visitors. For the students they wanted to be able to post information about what is going on during the day, any changes to the school timetables and progress on various school projects. For visitors they wanted to promote the school and its achievements and highlight the many benefits Marshland High offers. On top of this they wanted the ability to use the screens for TV and video distribution on occasions.
Marshland researched the market and eventually contacted Klicktv as suppliers of a range of different technologies and solutions to discuss which solution might best meet their needs.
The solution identified as the most appropriate comprised a Digital Signage Player connected to the dozen required TV displays using IPTV streaming technology.
Klicktv used their portable demonstration equipment to set up a demonstration of the system for the Headmaster, senior staff and IT department who were driving the project so they could see exactly how it worked, the quality of the displays and how the many features and benefits could be deployed to help Marshland meet and surpass their objectives.
The Digital Signage Player facilitates the production of eye catching dynamic displays combining branding, images, video windows, live TV inserts, animation, text and live ticker tape feeds to get a message through to any audience.
Templates make the design process quick, non technical and easy to change. Creation of content and control of playback is via a web based interface. Individual screen areas can be assigned separate username/ password access. Typically this feature is used to enable a receptionist to post messages in a designated area of the display to greet and inform visitors.
From the outset Marshland identified the need to make the screen content interesting to ensure students wanted to look at the screens as they passed. This was cleverly done by including a window within the overall screen composition to display the live output of a web cam installed inside a bird nesting box in the school grounds. Students enjoyed keeping an eye on the progress of the chicks and their feeding antics.
Klicktv supplied a complete working system – Digital Signage Player, IPTV streaming equipment, wall mounted TV screens complete with acrylic screen protectors and training.
