Emergency Signage Overrides

You’re watching a football game on network television, when the local news breaks in to alert you of potentially hazardous weather headed your way. Swap your television for the digital video displays you find on college campuses, in airports and office buildings, and elsewhere, and you understand the purpose and function of emergency signage overrides.

At MCA, our emergency overrides for digital signage allow you to perform a screen override for all the displays and workstations across your operations. All you need is our cloud-based digital signage software. With it, you can perform screen overrides from any desktop, mobile device, or tablet with an internet connection under your control.

Our digital signage override software enables you to transform your digital displays, cable televisions, and employee workstations into an intelligent alerting system. When activated, you can transmit critically important messages to your employees, customers, and the public in high-occupancy areas throughout your organization.

When to Use Digital Overrides for Your Organization’s Displays?

While emergency signage overrides are the most common, organizations and public venues deploy display overrides for numerous reasons. From conference room digital signage display overrides to important messages delivered straight to the desktop monitors at employee workstations, signage overrides serve a variety of purposes.

Emergency Messages

As the most obvious reason for overriding your organization’s display screens and cable televisions, digital signage overrides give you the peace of mind in knowing that the people in your hospital, school, stadium, and other venues and facilities, receive messages that keep them safe.

Corporate Digital Signage

Corporate digital signage refers to the messages your employees receive informing them of important work policy updates and other information. Digital display override software enables your business to send important messages to public displays in the office and directly to employee workstations.

Conference Room Digital Signage

Have you ever been presenting to a roomful of employees or coworkers only to notice that your presentation simply isn’t landing? Digital signage override software for the conference room enables you to shift gears on the fly and better engage your audience with thought-provoking videos and other attention grabbers.

Personalized Messages

Wish your employee a happy birthday or announce a spur-of-the-moment engagement at your stadium’s sporting event with digital signage override software. This is a great way to let your workforce know that you care about them or make for a fun experience for patrons of your public venue.
