Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany – SpinetiX Digital Signage Case Study

Learn how Goethe University Frankfurt diffuses information to 40,000 students daily across five campuses using digital signage technology from SpinetiX.

Forty Screen Locations, Five Campuses

SpinetiX technology is present in one of Germany’s largest educational institutions to diffuse communication to more than 40,000 students daily.

The SpinetiX digital signage solution installed at Goethe University  is popular for its ease of use, ability to centralize content management across multiple geographical locations, and minimal maintenance required.

Challenges

The strict requirement for a centralized and scalable solution that is robust enough to require minimal maintenance and be managed by a small team, tipped the scale overwhelmingly in favor of SpinetiX.

 

  • Content and maintenance should be managed centrally while deployed across multiple remote campuses
  • Reliable professional-grade technology that is able to run for at least 10 hours a day, 7 days a week and requires minimum maintenance is to be prioritized
  • The system should deliver content securely from multiple sources of data including social media accounts, calendars and local city information

“We love the scalability of the solution. We grew our network little by little, starting initially with a few screen locations. This has now grown to 40. In the future we are considering expanding the network to even more locations.”
