GREENVILLE, IL – Today, Edwardsville High School officially unveiled their new, state-of-the-art digital marquee sign. The new 6.75′ x 9.5′ sign is a full-color LED message center capable of stunning graphics and animations. EHS uses the sign to promote school events 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to students, faculty, parents and community.
The dynamic nature of the sign enables EHS to display more content than their old, static sign. Because the electronic sign can display virtually unlimited content, EHS can easily promote all sports at all levels, boys and girls, varsity and JV. The high school can also promote non-sporting events, like music concerts, drama productions and other student activities. While facilities with traditional, static signage may have to choose which content to display and which announcements they don’t have room for, EHS can promote every event they offer. By offering more promotion and support for more events, EHS can increase student participation, community awareness and can even increase revenue through additional ticket sales. The digital marquee sign was paid for entirely with private funding and will serve as a source of revenue for years to come.
Additionally, the Nevco display solution enables EHS to change content remotely. Most content is sent to the sign wirelessly from the school office, but content can also be managed remotely. For example, in the event of a “snow day” or other weather-related school closure, school officials can display announcements like “School Closed Today” or “Team Practices Cancelled Tonight” at any time, day or night, without having to go to the school. This ability to display up-to-the-minute information can be a great benefit to students, parents, faculty and the community.
