March 01, 2008

SHAWNEE, KS – March 1, 2008 – Rise Vision, Inc., a provider of web-based content management software for control of digital signage networks, announces that it is outfitting eight more business schools with digital signage solutions for their campus-based financial trading labs. These facilities are a fast-growing feature among business schools, as they offer real-life “Wall Street” experience that provides students with a post-graduate hiring advantage in financial services careers. Rise Vision, Inc. has worked with more than 100 business schools to deploy the technology they need to build a financial trading lab, including LED stock tickers, large format LCD displays, and financial quotes and headline news to create a dynamic financial atmosphere.

  • Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA deployed a unique 47-foot LED ticker on an elliptical curve to create a focal point for the four-story atrium of its new building, Snead Hall. The custom ticker attracts attention to the high-tech capital markets center, which faces the atrium through large windows that run along the curve below the ticker.
  • McIntire School of Commerce at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA installed a 284-foot stock ticker, giving them the distinction of having the longest LED ticker display in a US business school. The custom ticker wraps around two trading rooms and displays financial quotes and headline news.news-McIntireT_thumb
