Privacy matters when it comes to your students. We understand that you want to keep their information safe, but you also want to be able to share their accomplishments with parents, teachers, and students with photos. Vidigami gives schools a path for privately organizing and sharing school photos, as well as sending those photos to your displays seamlessly. That means your displays will always have fresh content showing that your students will love.

What is Vidigami?

Vidigami is a photo-management system just for schools. It lets your school community (parents, students, teachers--whoever you decide) upload, download, and share photos in a private space.

What makes Vidigami stand out is the way it automatically detects, tags, and organizes the photos that you upload.

For example, let’s say a teacher takes a photo of their fourth-grade class working on a science project. The teacher can upload it to the schools Vidigami portal and all the students in the photo will be detected and put into the folder for that class. The teacher can then share that folder with parents and students.

Schools decide who sees what. That means parents don’t have to be concerned with strangers being able to download photos of their child. Parents can download, share, and even buy prints of the photos.

Vidigami also has a native iOS and Android app to make it even easier for viewers to see photos on mobile devices.

Why use Vidigami?

There are lots of ways schools can privately share photos. Google Drive, for example, also lets you organize and share photos. Why use Vidigami?

Vidigami is for schools who want enterprise-level photo management with multiple user accounts and restrictions. Unlike some photo management tools, which create an often cumbersome organizing experience, Vidigami is so easy to use you may forget it’s there, working in the background, to solve your problem! It’s advance photo recognition and filtering will save you time, so you can get back to helping your students!

Users can also add tags to photos, and everything is, of course, searchable. That means if your yearbook committee needs a photo of a sixth grader at a Track and Field event, they can have it in seconds; they don’t have to search through hundreds of photos as they would without advance photo management.

Schools who sign-up for a Rise Vision and Vidigami account, however, can also send their digital memories right to your digital signage displays.

Last year, Vidigami presented at the ATLIS Conference where they showed just how easy it was to integrate your photos from their photo management software onto your digital signage. You can read their tutorial or watch this video to learn how.

Once you embed the Vidigami link in your Rise Vision presentation, any photo you add to that folder in Vidigami will automatically show up on your digital display.

Rise Vision is created to support hundreds of HTML tools such as Vidigami; you can see other popular tools that schools use with their digital signage account here.
