At Rise Vision, we believe that digital signage is a key component of effective student communication. When done well, digital signage is one of the best ways to get emergency notifications, important dates, and upcoming events in front of a campus audience.
Since 1992, Rise Vision has been a leading digital signage software solution for schools and businesses. Since then, we’ve built a software platform that not only runs on any major digital signage operating system - but can also easily adapt to any technology changes a school or institution may decide to make.
During this time we’ve discovered the hidden cost of digital signage is content creation. Before using Rise Vision our customers would spend up to 16 hours a week creating, editing and updating their digital signage campaigns. We’ve tackled this problem by creating a platform that eliminates a lot of the time-consuming content creation and management issues you’ll find with traditional digital signage. Let’s go over how Rise Vision solves these problems below:
Now, more than ever, campus staff must have the ability to update or make changes to student information off-site. Rise Vision is 100% cloud-based, which means you can access and make changes to any on-campus display from any location in the world.
Additionally, by being cloud-based there’s no need to have to service individual computers or media players when you want to update your digital signage. This saves hours of work and reduces workplace injury. Often, digital signage hardware is located above ceiling tiles and requires technicians to work on ladders. Keeping your IT staff and campus technicians off of ladders prevents injuries to themselves as well as students.
We’ve found that our customers will spend up to 16 hours a week creating digital signage content. We’ve helped to reduce that burden by creating a templates gallery that cuts content creation workload down. Creating digital signage content now only takes minutes instead of hours when you use Rise Vision.
There’s also no need to create digital signs in Photoshop or other graphic design tools. Just search for a template, edit the text, adjust colors, insert your logo and you’re on your way! You can even connect your school social media accounts, stream video and get feed data (like weather information) fed right into your templates.
A useful digital signage system needs to be able to store logos, animations, and finalized signs. An intelligent digital signage system eliminates the need to have to routinely re-upload files and rebuild workflows. Rise Vision was designed to reduce all repetitive content management and campaign programming tasks.
Since we’ve released our digital signage solution in 1992, we deeply understand the common workflows and repetitive tasks our customers go through. We’ve used this knowledge to streamline the digital signage management process so that you only need one tool to manage, create and operate your digital signage campaigns.
Another time-saving feature that we’ve incorporated into our software is the ability to schedule your digital signage. There’s no need to manually change messages or upload new information on certain days and/or times.
Rise Vision was designed so you can schedule all your signage campaigns in one sitting. You can even schedule campaigns to operate on different days and times on multiple displays - or even different displays throughout your campus!
“We've tried different solutions for digital signage but this one's the best so far. We can plan ahead and reuse our programming. It's easy to use. It's cloud based. It's customizable. It's fast and [has] extra features to monitor devices.”
The Rise Vision digital signage platform is perfect for schools thanks to our vast library of digital signage templates designed for educational settings. Rise Vision templates are designed to scale to any resolution, ensuring that they always look perfect on any display! Here are a few digital signage templates you can get started with below:
Rise Vision has dozens of calendars, season-themed and announcement templates designed for schools. There’s no need to search for clip art, download icons or find background images. With Rise Vision you can quickly edit text, make design adjustments and launch your signage campaign in seconds.

Thoughtful student communication includes educating the campus population even when students aren’t in class. This diversity calendar displays important diversity months throughout the year and can be incorporated into a comprehensive monthly signage campaign.
The need for campus staff to quickly broadcast emergency information is something we take very seriously at Rise Vision. We’ve partnered with PunchAlert to allow for integration with their CAP Alert software platform. With a few quick swipes and taps, campus staff can broadcast emergency alert notifications to all displays around a school or an entire university.
Use this template to easily and quickly broadcast emergency alerts across your space. The bold colors and text will grab your audience's attention in emergency scenarios. Customize the template with your own message and colors.
This digital signage template will integrate with CAP alerts providers such as E2Campus, Rave or PunchAlert. If a CAP alert is initiated, this template can be immediately broadcasted to all displays around campus and switch off regularly scheduled programming until the alert is over.
Keeping students safe requires everyone on campus to be proactive. This template was designed to keep students and staff informed on how to report suspicious activity that may arise in a campus setting.
Keeping the student population aware of athletic events is a great way to keep school spirit up and celebrate student-athletes.
The Game Reminder template is the perfect way to share important details for your school’s upcoming sporting events.

Video highlights are a great way to get your school excited for upcoming sports events. Use this video template to get everyone excited for your next big game and raise school spirit!
Educating students also includes giving them the knowledge of how they can stay healthy as well as informing them that their school is there for them for any health issue they’re facing. We’ve created several templates that cover everything from nutrition to mental health.
Remind students to cover their faces when they cough or sneeze to help prevent the spread of germs in your school. Whether it's flu season or not, we could all use a little reminder of the best ways to stay sanitary. All of the text fields in this template are editable, so you can personalize this presentation however you like.
Educating your students about food facts and healthy eating is really important. With this new auto updating-template, learning health food facts can be fun! Each week a new series of 3 facts and interesting trivia will keep your students engaged and entertained. Don't miss out on this opportunity to teach your students more about the food they eat.
“I have been using Rise Vision in one form or another for probably 15 years. Typically for some simple slideshow programs on lobby monitors, however the last year Rise has been powering our Coffee Shop menu boards, and the teams there are loving it.”
