Information about Displaying Flyers and Videos
Flyers and videos are placed in a rotation. Each is
displayed for 15 seconds.
Flyers and Videos that advertise for a coming event will
be displayed until the event date. If you wish your flyer
to be displayed for a specific period of time, please
include a note with your submission.
Flyers that are intended as an ongoing advertisement
will be featured for a maximum of one academic semester.
If you wish to have ongoing advertisements displayed over
consecutive semesters, we ask that you submit a
re-designed flyer (via the DIBs Request Form) so that the
sign content stays fresh.
Videos can be submitted in Flash, Quicktime (.mov), or
Windows Media (.avi) format. Videos can incorporate sound.
Videos longer than 15 seconds will not be displayed.
The number of times your flyer will be displayed at any
given period of time will vary depending on the number of
flyers currently in the rotation. For example: if there
are 60 flyers being rotated at 15 seconds per flyer, each
flyer will be shown once every 15 minutes.

in rotation to get an idea of what might work for your
