Over 100 university departments and over 100 student organizations will have access to Campus Vision as a vital new form of campus communication with the student body.

The Audience software platform is responsible for the creation and management of content for the show which will provide a variety of campus and community news to University of Waterloo students and staff.

The turn-key Audience digital signage system, installation services, training and support were supplied by Authorized Audience Reseller, Edcom Multimedia of Kitchener, Ontario.

The new service will trial launch on August 1 and go into regular service for September 1, 2006.
