What is Appspace?
Approximately 100 digital displays are located across all Griffith campuses. They are managed by software called Appspace and communicate dynamic content that celebrates the activities of the Griffith University community.
With the introduction of Appspace, Digital Signage can now display rich digital media content, videos, live streams, TV and social media content on video walls, video projectors and large digital screens.
To keep consistency of messaging to the target audience, view our content guidelines below. Also access our brand and identity guide to ensure content aligns with the Griffith brand.
- images must be high-resolution JPEGs and at least 72dpi when being viewed at 100%. Screen resolution is 1920×1080 pixels
- videos should be 1080p (1920×1080 pixels) at 30 frames per second, MPEG-4 files or mpeg2 if you are using a DMP-4310. Appspace can encode the videos to the correct format for you. Sound is best only to be used if not disruptive to the location.
- RSS and social media feeds must be monitored or approved by the content administrator
The primary audience for digital screens are students, staff and visitors.
- create content that is high-quality, visual and engaging. It should be relevant to the Griffith University community.
- keep in mind five key focus areas: learning, teaching, research, Asian engagement and sustainability
- digital slides are generally displayed for 7 to 12 seconds at a time. Messages on these slides should be brief and designed to be read and absorbed within this timeframe.
- aim to service those using the area as a thoroughfare, as well as those using the space as a meeting place or collaboration area
- content should be refreshed weekly
- in addition to week-by-week content, consider special daily scheduling to promote events and engage function attendees, high school visitors, visiting sporting groups
- location naming should follow this rule: N53 0.35 Foyer left
