Digital Signage Service

The Carver College of Medicine's digital signage system serves as an internal communications channel for faculty, staff, and students to highlight events, accomplishments, campus news, and more.  Effective August 16, 2017, the process to submit signage requests will be handled as follows:

Step 1

Prepare your slide using the CCOM PowerPoint templates for awards, events, and general announcements. Right click to download.

  • Click the New Slide arrow in the toolbar for additional layouts/colors.

  • Refer to the Notes section in the templates for additional design recommendations.

  • Several custom templates, such as dissertation seminars and neurology grand rounds, will be added in the coming months.

  • Hundreds of slide submissions from the past year were analyzed to accommodate the vast majority of use cases

  • Content is intentionally minimized as faculty, staff, students, etc. briefly glance at the screens. (Think of a billboard as you’re driving.)

  • The design closely aligns with UI Health Care’s graphic standards.

Step 2

Submit your slide using the UI Health Care monitor form.

  • Check UI Carver College of Medicine as the requested location, and drop your slide into the gray box toward the bottom.

  • MedVision will no longer be monitored and will soon be retired.

  • PBDB submissions should route to mary-kenyon@uiowa.edu.

Step 3

Our team will post your slide within 1-2 days of receiving it.

  • Check out the live CCOM signage to see if your slide has been posted.

  • Slides are posted on all CCOM screens (see map) with the exception of PBDB.

  • Slides must comply with UI Health Care guidelines (coming soon on The Point) or they will not be posted.

Monitors cycle through messages (10 seconds per slide) from 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and automatically power down after 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. Monitors do not operate on weekends, but special arrangements can be made for major events occurring after hours.
