Major renovations began in January 2012 and lasted until March of 2012. The visitors center hosts more than 1,000 prospective students and is the perfect setup for digital signage platforms.

"Over one hundred standard digital signage mounts have been installed throughout areas of the WVU campus," stated Spencer Graham, Manager of Operations for Information Services at WVU.

The LMV's single latch design ensures a secured opening and closing of the mount for a quick and easy installation.

Using the LMV for the new video wall, the installation was a seamless process. With the "Click-It" feature, displays are easily accessible and adjustable with the top-adjustable brackets.

The kickstand and scissor extension allow the mount to easily be pulled out for accessibilty or maintenance.

Upcoming digital signage projects include custom heated enclosures for the WVU monorail system that connects the three campuses. Digital signage monitors will be at each station of the system.

Over 100 standard digital signage mounts, four video walls, as well as custom enclosure mounts were installed in West Virginia University's visitor center as part of an expanding, campus-wide digital signage project to welcome and engage visitors.

The WVU Visitors Center serves as the main recruiting portal, and using this unique setup for digital signage with advanced technology, the center serves as a powerful tool to welcome and engage new prospective students. This is an ongoing project with plans to increase digital signage throughout the entire campus. The latest phase of the project included a 2x4 video wall installation with Premier Mounts' LMVs to the visitors center, as well as PRT-100 and AM80 flat-panel mounts. Future installations will include custom heated enclosures at each monorail transportation station for additional digital signage.
