The digital signage hardware requirements are:

  • Power and Ethernet (network) connections at the sign’s location
  • An LCD, LED, or plasma display - Information Technology (IT) recommends using a professional display instead of a consumer model.  A professional model is less likely to experience image burning and is more suitable for the hours of operation a typical digital sign is used.  IT recommends using Dell 55" E5515H, Dell 70" C7016H, and Sharp Professional displays.
  • A TV mount - Generally, a tilting wall-mount will be sufficient.  In some cases, a swivel mount may be better suited for the sign.  IT will help you determine which mount is best for the sign.
  • A media player (computer) to play the content - IT recommends purchasing a Dell OptiPlex Micro with the following specifications (no keyboard and mouse):
Dell OptiPlex 7050 Micro*
  • Intel® Core™ i5-6500T Processor 2.5GHz
  • 8GB 1600MHz  DDR3L Memory
  • 500GB 7200rpm Serial ATA Drive
  • HDMI cable
  • OptiPlex Micro VESA Mount 

*Availabe as a package. Please see below for details.
