Create a Powerful Impression

Learning institutions must find new and effective ways to appeal to learners. Stunning LED canvases and touch screen video walls deployed in visitor and welcome centers offer a creative way to captivate and generate authentic interest among students. High tech displays demonstrate that an institution is forward looking, building credibility in the minds of students.

Likewise, display technologies featured in new or renovated athletic facilities serve as compelling recruitment tools, allowing universities to showcase their programs and attract top talent.
