CU-Boulder has a campus wide agreement with Four Winds Interactive (FWi) to provide their digital signage software. This enables campus departments to implement digital signage for the cost of the related hardware and infrastructure (see below). The Office of Information Technology has purchased this software to encourage usage and standardization across campus departments.
Digital signage is a way of electronically displaying information in public spaces. A digital sign consists of a display device, typically a wall mounted LCD screen, and a connected player device that will play back content, typically a very small format computer. There are many variations to this, including using projection devices, and kiosk style signage. Digital signage can be displayed in many orientations, although generally uses a display mounted on a wall in landscape or portrait format.
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:
