Yodeck digital signage for education in action

Take a look at this example from New York University (NYU)

Caspar, project leader for the Environmental sensing group NYU, needed two digital signs to display the team’s live data on air quality. 

But, whilst the digital displays were to be installed in Shanghai, Caspar was located half a world away, at NYU’s New York campus. 

So Caspar needed a robust, flexible, campus digital signage system that was up to the job. And, since he was based at an educational institution, Caspar’s team needed a solution that was also affordable and flexible.

Yodeck had just the digital signage solution Caspar was looking for. 

  • Plug-and-play technology. Our credit-card-sized Raspberry Pi computers are plugged in using a USB port so they can easily be installed into the back of your screens.
  • Ease of use. Like anyone in an educational setting, Caspar had lots on his to-do list. So Caspar appreciated Yodeck’s hassle-free digital sign platform, which meant he had time to focus on completing other crucial parts of the project. 
  • Centralized management of content. Caspar found he could securely and easily make edits to screens, schedule content and share live data from anywhere in the world thanks to Yodeck’s online dashboard. 

“If we expanded this project to one of NYU’s other campuses, I would try to continue using Yodeck’s digital signage software. And, similarly, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that had a similar necessity. I think it’s a cost-effective and scalable solution to digital signage.”
