CS Kiosk Graphical Home Page

Visibull Digital Signage

(Old) Kiosk Setup

Overview

These notes are for the older custom-designed kiosk that we had in our Great Hall. That equipment has been retired, although the web page it used still exists. The current digital signage uses Visibull (see above)

  • KioskShutdownReboot - notes on shutting down or rebooting the CS kiosks
  • KioskHard Kiosk Hardware Specifications and other machine installation issues
  • KioskConf Kiosk Configuration
  • KioskEventsDisplay - describes how the kiosk displays events on the upper screen
  • The kiosk website is part of the SCS website, that lives in:
    • /.software/regional/wwwdata_cs.uwaterloo.ca/data/vhosts/cs/kiosk
    • it is available on any of the CS Core machines (eg: cpu102, cpu104, etc.)
  • Make pictures for each link to next pages
    • using /cs/kiosk/image_screen.jpg for all pictures as the base image
    • sample photos that are suitable for use as links can be found in the Kiosk Slideshow, available on \\smb-files.cs\cs_kiosk_slideshow
    • a copy of those photos can currently be found in ... /cs/kiosk/KioskSlideshow
    • the images then need to be resized to fit into the base image

    • -- header -- is a table with one row and 2 columns, displaying the UW logo, the CS banner and the Math Faculty banner.
