Only submittals announcing and promoting university events, activities and programs will be approved for posting, and all advertised events must be open to the public.
Outdoor digital sign timeslots are first come, first served. Users should submit their material one week prior to desired running dates.
Operational messages have priority over promotional content.
Only one sign per event/activity/program should run at a time to give all messages equal airtime.
All content must be duplicated in its entirety (and fully accessible by the public) on the university website. The corresponding website must contain the following statement concerning accessibility: “Individuals that require accommodations for this event please contact Accessibility Services by [10 business days prior to event date]. email:firstname.lastname@example.org | phone: 510-885-3868.”
All content must be in compliance with these guidelines to be approved for posting by University Communications and Marketing. Unapproved content requiring modifications will need to be resubmitted.
Video/motion content and static images are allowed on the ASI sign. Only static content is permissible on the three roadway signs.
Use the following dimensions for the roadway signs: 288 pixels high x 480 pixels wide. For the ASI location use 192 pixels high x 288 pixels wide.
Video content (ASI sign) should be exported as an uncompressed AVI or MP4 file at the highest quality, with a framerate of 24, 30 or 60 frames per second (fps). Set the aspect ratio set to square pixels.
Video must be exactly 10 seconds long.
Static content at all locations should be exported as high-quality JPEG files, at 72 pixels per inch (ppi).
Fonts used in content designated for the roadway signs must be sans serif, at least 24 points and have a contrast ratio between 8:1 and 12:1 (with the background).
If you're submitting content for both the road signs and ASI sign, please note that the form only accepts one attachment at a time. You will need to fill out the form TWICE; once for the road signs and once for the ASI sign.
