3M Library Systems announced the release of 3M Digital Signage, a communication platform that offers a wide array of media and visual formats for more effective and dynamic communication with library patrons.
"3M Digital Signage can help enhance communications by more effectively relaying important information about library services and events to patrons," said Skip Driessen, business development manager, 3M Track and Trace Solutions. "It's an easy-to-use product that streamlines communication, to the benefit of both staff and patrons."
The 3M Digital Signage system features a web application that allows users to upload content to a secure portal and create an on-line schedule for the displays. The information will be displayed within minutes of the completed schedule and can be programmed days, weeks, months or years in advance.
Media content options for this communications system include MP3, Flash, URLs and QuickTime. Additionally, the 3M Digital Signage will be installed by 3M Library Systems trained technicians who ensure the system is set up and operating properly, making the transition to digital signage as easy as possible.
The new digital signage was released during the 2009 American Library Association annual conference in Chicago . For more information about the 3M Library Systems solutions, visit: www.3M.com/library/us/pr
