This is a Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) between the campus community and ICIT to document:
Digital signage consists of the display of different digital media such as Cable TV, webpages, live streams, DVD material, or PowerPoint slides. Divisions and departments will be required to purchase approved digital displays that can be integrated into the campus digital signage system. Installation will be performed by ICIT. Services will be performed on a timeframe consistent with their priority.
Initial requests for acquisition of digital signage shall be made to Nick Ciesinski, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Content publishing for Digital Signage requires access to the campus system and a familiarity with the software used to publish the content (digital media).
In addition, ICIT can provide complete content development services, if desired. Details of this service are outside the scope of this agreement.
UMC will have the authority to use all of the campus digital signage during an emergency.
Service requests fall into two categories: requests for acquisition and installation of new Digital Signage and incidents with currently installed Digital Signage.
Inquiries about equipment purchasing should be made to Nick Ciesinski, email@example.com. Please ensure that only authorized purchasers make the contact. Inquiries into new acquisitions should be accompanied by a brief rationale of the need for Digital Signage.
Responses to requests for new purchases will be made within 10 business days.
The Helpdesk is the initial contact to report incidents or service problems with the campus digital signage system. Phone: 472-HELP (472-4357) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The hours during academic sessions are:
Monday-Thursday: 8 AM - 9 PM
Fridays: 8 AM - 4:30 PM (Check Get Help for summer and extended hours.)
ICIT is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure and operation of the Digital Signage system. Be aware that the content on a digital display will often be coming from a number of different sources, including sources hosted outside of the DS system and sources from off-campus. ICIT is not responsible for the reliability of the content from outside sources.
If a digital display is not working, contact the Helpdesk to report the problem. Service will be prioritized according to the impact level.
