The King’s Academy (TKA) K-12 private school recently installed dozens of Samsung Smart Signage screens across its sprawling 60-acre campus in West Palm Beach, FL, and is using Samsung’s MagicInfo content management software to conduct its programming, which ranges from timely student, staff and visitor communications, to live-streaming student theater productions, to selling hot dogs at football games.

Traditional campus communication tactics like public address announcements, bulletin boards and take-home flyers were no longer making the grade. The school decided to enlist education-focused pro AV integrator United Data Technologies to design and install an end-to-end display and signage solution in buildings across the campus.

TKA chose to use Samsung’s diverse line of embedded system-on-chip (SoC) displays, which remove the need for an external media player and extra cables and connectors — limiting costs, streamlining the installation and minimizing ongoing maintenance requirements.

Educators and students are both using Samsung’s intuitive, easy-to-use MagicInfo CMS to develop, schedule and distribute messaging across the campus, or target specific items like promotional or celebratory messages to specific screens by time and location.

Watch the video to see how The King’s Academy is using MagicInfo and smart displays and signage to power school communications, and hear from educators and students about the impacts they’re seeing around campus.
