CCU Pushes Smart Campus with Digital Signage Network

Chinese Culture University, Taiwan


Since 2005, CAYIN Technology's SMP players have been installed in one of the most revolutionary Taiwanese universities in Taipei: the Chinese Culture University (CCU). The university consists of four campuses separately located from one another.

Over the course of 14 years, CCU has chosen to update its campuses with generations of CAYIN’s digital signage players (over 200 units across the years), making it one of the largest networks in the education arena.

In July 2005, CCU decided to construct a new campus media platform for four missions:

1. Replacing the old-fashioned bulletin boards and posters which require high cost of regular maintenance, operation, and lack of efficiency.
2. Distribution of live and pre-edited multimedia information to groups of displays across campuses.
3. Differentiating the image of the university in an extremely competitive Taiwanese education market.
4. Offering students, teachers, school staff and visitors an environment with real-time information.

After having tested a few products from the market, CCU decided to adopt CAYIN Technology's Digital Signage Solution (SMP players and CMS servers) as their unique solution in 2005. CCU has already completed two-phase deployments, including a total of 105 players with 32”-50” LCD and PDP displays throughout the campus, such as at front gates, along corridors, in front of elevators, and outside conference rooms allocated in various buildings in different campuses.

Chinese Culture University is now able to display school news, teaching materials, and public information in various formats such as videos, images, scrolling texts, and Flash animations. They also broadcast live videos, such as TV programs and the graduation ceremony, which takes place every year in the auditorium.

This implementation gives a brand new identity to the school where student actively participate to content creation. CAYIN's platform is part of day-to-day student life in the university.
