Over the summer all media cabinet locks were removed in all centrally-scheduled teaching spaces. As a result, instructors will no longer need a key to access classroom media. Cables that are connected to the digital projection displays (LCDs or data projectors) are still in place but are now locked down differently. Additional items stored in the cabinets, such as remotes and microphones, will still be be stored in the existing cabinet spaces.
Traditional printing involves printing from a computer located in one of OIT's computing labs.

CU-Boulder has a campuswide agreement with Four Winds Interactive to provide digital signage software. This enables campus departments to implement digital signage at the cost of the hardware (any windows-based system; hardware is also available through Four Winds Interactive).
Digital signage is a way of electronically displaying information on a screen. A digital sign may be a departures list screen at an airport or possibly a roadside advertisement. More information on digital signage can be found at the Four Winds Interactive website.
Four Winds Digital Signage is available and customizable to your department by working directly with Four Winds Interactive. Some signage options include:
Students, faculty, and staff use their Buff OneCards at print-release stations to pay for their print jobs, using Campus Cash associated with their Buff OneCard.
Students, faculty and staff:
Students are provided a set amount of free prints each semester. Learn more about student quota.
As part of the Student Computing Fee charged each semester, students receive a set amount of campus cash on their Buff OneCard to use toward printing from any SPS managed printer and release station.
Student quota is based on the amount billed to a student for the Student Computing Fee each semester.
This amount will is added to a cardholder account within 2 business days of the fee being uploaded to the University Bill.
Unused quota will carry over from the fall to spring semester. Unused quota will be cleared from the cardholder’s account one week after the Spring commencement.
Refunds are given for either poor quality prints or for prints lost to paper jams. Imaging Services is able to process refunds at any one of their two campus locations.
Remote printing allows you to print documents from your personal computer or laptop to OIT printers on campus using downloaded printer drivers. Printing from your room, office, or wireless location is easy -- just print from your computer and your document will be secured electronically for 24 hours until you release it for printing from any SPS printer of the appropriate type.
Printer drivers are combined into one package (for each operating system) so that they can now be used for all printers around campus.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before installing any printer installers, be sure that old printers and Pharos Popup software (installed before the Spring 2014 semster) have been uninstalled. Detailed uninstallation and installation instructions for printer drivers are located on the following pages:
