Why Every College & University Needs LED Video Walls

The technology supporting higher education is constantly evolving to meet the needs of students, faculty and the world, both on and off-campus. Recent high school and tech school graduates are digital natives, already accustomed to instantly available, high-quality visual information. Educators and adult learners are adapting to meet the demands of an increasingly digital world. Large-scale LED displays and video walls are the perfect way to boost your college or university’s modern visual appeal and attract the students, educators, and alumni you welcome to campus.

Speaking of welcomes, video walls are a streamlined solution for visitors. Digital wayfinding and visitor information is clearly displayed — maybe even interactive — and all in stunning, larger-than-life, high-quality video. Recruit new students before they even check-in at admissions or the student center. Your video wall can be programmed with personalized greetings for tour groups and prospective students and their families. For today’s digital natives, this could be the deciding factor between your college and the competition.

Once you’ve won their loyalty off the field, consider video walls and LED displays for your athletic programs — and not just your stadium. Locker rooms and practice facilities with LED displays are equipped to review game footage or training programming. Let college athletes unwind with displays that also function as media screens for streaming or gaming — a huge draw for teen or young adult athletes in their downtime.

College sports venues often rival professional teams in terms of fan experience; A-list university football and basketball programs generate hundreds of millions of dollars of annual revenue. Take a step toward the big leagues with LED scoreboards and displays that match the professional sports fan experience.


Let the cache of a professional-grade AV experience work for your college or university with targeted advertising. Take advantage of half-time and pre-game tailgating time by showing off the generous sponsors who keep your program financially strong, and bring in alumni contributions with the latest updates on how their favorite teams measure up with trivia and sports news.

Targeted visual information works campus-wide. LED displays and video walls in libraries and classroom buildings communicate campus events and important updates in real time, right where your students and faculty already are. Imagine an LED display or video wall in a lecture hall, delivering quality visual aids to students all the way to the back of the room.

LED displays and video walls can enrich academic life too. Give educators the technology to interact with those displays and you’ve got a modern classroom that appeals to post-millennial students. Add remote communication to your display to bring off-campus learners and guest educators into your global classrooms.

Common rooms and public student spaces can benefit from video walls and LED displays as well. Menu boards and hours of operation for the dining halls, cafeterias and book store can update in real time and offer visual interest. Screen films at sporting events and stream TV in lounges and auditoriums.

The future is increasingly connected on and off campus. Modern learners want seamless transitions from their personal devices to the world around them. Impress your current and future students — not to mention your sponsors, alumni and guests — with vibrant visual content. DGI can help you design, implement and support the perfect LED displays and video walls for your college or university and a surprisingly affordable price. Contact us to get started.
