The Information|Stations are an intricate, digital signage network of displays strategically placed across the Downtown and Evansdale campuses in areas with a lot of pedestrians. The main purpose of the Info|Stations is campus safety. The Info|Stations are designed to interface with the WVU Police Department and the e2Campus text alert system.
“The Information|Stations are an integral and valued part of the Emergency Alert System. During times of trouble, the stations receive and display the Emergency Alert message within 1 to 2 seconds, proving themselves a reliable and necessary part of the overall system. The outstanding performance of the system is a testament to the quality of both the equipment and those who manage it.” ~ Chief Bob Roberts, University Police
On a daily basis these displays integrate numerous technologies to provide real-time information to the WVU community about a variety of subjects: daily and special events, athletics schedules, Rec Center programs, and more. The departmental pages allow users to display relevant information in actual time with a custom-designed layout that conveys the look and feel of each department. This information is updated through web database integration and the WVU calendars. This allows the information to easily be kept up-to-date and relevant.
It is important to keep the community well informed and safe. The Info|Stations staff take pride in assisting WVU in carrying out these objectives with the most current technology available.
