Digital signage is an effective and cost-efficient way to advertise and market information across campus. It is available for BYU–Hawaii departments and organizations to promote events, campaigns, initiatives, etc. Digital sign images should be formatted and submitted as static images, motion graphics, or short videos to be displayed on digital screens placed in high traffic areas across campus.
