Digital Sign Basics expanding section

All publicity should include the name of the sponsoring organization, or department.

If using PowerPoint to create your slide use 20" wide x 11.25" high page setup to scale your slide to fit the wide format of the monitors with enough resolution.

If using another design editor to create your slide use the 20" x 11.25" dimensions or 1920 x 1080 pixels with a minimum 150 dpi resolution as a JPEG or PNG file.

Keep your slide easy to read with good contrast between the slide background and the text. Each slide is up for only 10 seconds so make sure those viewing your slide can read your information in that time.

The slide can remain on TV Monitors for 5-10 days depending on the number of slides currently in the rotation.

To comply with Digital Sign Publicity Guidelines and Requirements, please check carefully for content, name of sponsoring organization or department, and typos, prior to submitting your slide.
