http://cicciideas.com/?p=589  This is an excellent research piece on distance from digital signage and the physical size of the QR Code on the signage.  George Cicci is a co-worker and our lead Graphics Artist and recent completed his Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Concepts.

The code actually contained malware that sent SMS codes to a premium rate number that charged for each message.

Social Media and Digital Signage Articles…

Here is a great link to cicciideas blog about “Place Based Social Media and Digital Signage in Higher Education” written by our team member and Professional Technologist George Cicci surrounding a project to engage 5,500 new students to our campus, in one event, using Wiffiti from LocaModa.  It was a HUGE success and has become an annual fixture at our New Student Welcome event each fall semester!  http://cicciideas.com/?p=367

Using Video on Digital Signage…  

Early on in the process of creating our digital signage network there were only a handful of content and network management software platforms available.  We initially chose the Harris InfoCaster platform for content creation and network management.  Given we needed to leverage a lot of our institutional videos within our pages of information displayed we soon came upon a “video bug-a-boo” that vexed us greatly.  George Cicci and Jennifer Gillum, our team Professional Technologists for Graphic Design and It/Database, spent countless hours trying to discover a solution.  Here is an installment from George’s blog… cicciideas…  “Harris InfoCaster Video Settings   The Missing Manual”  http://cicciideas.com/?p=118 with a few solutions that allowed us a little breathing room to accomplish some of our goals in the area of video inclusion.  (In October 2010 we purchased X2O Media’s Xpresenter platform for content creation and network management.)
