What is the Union Digital Signage Network? 

The Network is a full-color, digital event promotions and media system available in the University Union at the University of North Texas Denton campus for on-campus clubs and departments.

The Network advertisements run on large LCD screen monitors strategically located throughout the Union. Each advertisement runs for 20 seconds in a queue, playing once every three to five minutes. Ads utilize both our interactive touch screens and our non-interactive touch screens.

Why Choose the Union Digital Signage Network? 

The Union is the central meeting place for UNT students, faculty and staff as well as community members and campus guests. More than 20,000 people visit the Union each day. It is home to a variety of services including retail dining, bookstore, post office, student life offices, copy center, and a variety of meeting and study spaces.

The digital signage monitors are located on all four levels of the Union, and are located in the most high-traffic areas within the facility.

IF YOU WANT TO DESIGN YOUR ARTWORK ON YOUR OWN:

The following guidelines can help you create your own advertisements that will work best in our system.  The vertical oriented poster template is designed to mirror the same size dimensions of your typical lawn sign.  For the horizontal orientation, refer to a standard powerpoint slide, or a 16:9 ratio.

DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS:

Pixel dimensions

  • Vertical 864x1296 pixels
  • Horizontal 1296x864 or 756x540 pixels

Save your artwork as a .png at 96 dpi

It is highly recommended to optimize your image for web when working in Illustrator, Photoshop, or InDesign.
