Guidelines for Participation in Tyler’s Plasma Screen Program
The Tyler School of Art facility is equipped with 5 large plasma screens placed strategically around the school for sharing content submitted by Administrators, Faculty, Students and Staff. The following media are acceptable:
How can I make my announcement effective?
Here is an example of a very effective announcement:
Almost any form of student project can be shown on the screens. It’s a great way to share what makes Tyler such a great place with others in our community but outside your department, and people visiting Tyler. Please include title, the name of the student(s) who made the piece, the course they made it for, and the major.
It’s important to realize that the plasma screens are much different than gallery space. While one chooses to enter a gallery, these screens are present in public space around the school, and can even be seen from the street. So content should be suitable for that type of environment.
For that reason, all student work must come through a faculty person who is familiar with the work and personally supports it’s presentation on the screens.
Video can be submitted, but should follow these basic rules:
During a special event, like a reception, party, conference, etc, you are welcome to use the screens to show related slide shows or films that engage your guests.
What is the Resolution?
1280 by 720 –aspect ratio 16x9 (wide screen)
It is encouraged NOT to use formats other than wide screen, because your content will be smaller, making your text harder to see.
Download a JPG template to use in photoshop or any other image software.
Announcements for events, BFA and MFA shows are the only content that can be submitted directly by students. If you are a student wishing to display other content, have your faculty person submit it for you.
All content must be submitted at least one week ahead of the time it should be displayed. All Content must be suitable for a public environment.
Most content will only be shown for one week.
Please fill out the form below and you will be contacted with instructions for delivering your media. If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask. I’m more than happy to help you make your content look it’s best!
