Duke Digital Signage

Digital signage gif

Duke's Digital Signage program offers two different solutions. There are currently close to 200 digital signs displayed across Duke University's campus.

DukeFlyer Player: This service allows you to play one or more feeds from the DukeFlyer system on any type of hardware that is capable of playing a web browser and is approved to be on the Duke Network. Low-cost solutions such as Intel sticks or Raspberry Pi’s can be used.  It will also automatically display a banner notification if there are any declare emergencies. The software is offered at no cost to anyone in the global Duke community.  More information about the DukeFlyer system: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3xV97IIzYmGdXls.

OptiSigns:  OptiSigns offers a cloud-based solution that will play on low-cost players including the Amazon Fire Stick. The software is relatively easy to learn to create signs with dynamic content such as tickers, video, weather and RSS feeds. Emergency notification will be through the use of the DukeFlyer player integrated into the sign with direct integration coming later in 2022. Anyone in the Duke community can receive a license for an OptiSigns player at no cost. 

Four Winds Interactive (Previous Solution) As of April 1, 2022, Four Winds Interactive will no longer provide support or updates to our software. We can/will continue to run this service until April 1, 2023, or as long as it will operate under a secure operating system.  

Customers are responsible for hardware purchase, installation and maintenance for all services.
