Digital Information Boards

DIBs is the Student Center Facilities (SCF) digital sign system that displays digital images, campus events, cable television, along with Lehigh news feeds on multiple plasma and LCD screens throughout the SCF buildings. DIBs can display still images as well as video.

TOPICS:

DIBS Advertising

Ads will cover almost the entire screen of the DIBS boards. Submission options for these ads include:

  •  A JPEG of the flyer in landscape orientation
  •  A PowerPoint slide

Some tips for an effective ad include:

  • Using only large fonts
  •  Including only essential details
  •  Adding eye-catching pictures

When submitting a JPEG, please make sure your photo dimensions are 1920x720. This is a simple
conversion and can be done HERE (http://www.picresize.com/)

  • We will notify you if your advertisement is ineligible for posting on the DIBs. In the case that your advertisement will not be posted, we encourage you to redesign your submission and resubmit it.

DIBS Request Form

  • To advertise on DIBs, please complete the DIBs Request Form and submit your flyer or video. Include any additional information on the form you feel necessary, including desired display dates.

Please Note:

All advertising will be reviewed and posted at the discretion of the Office of Student Center Facilities. Advertising policies and fees are subject to change without notice.

  • We reserve the right to accept advertisements based on how they will appear on the DIBs.  Your submission must be readable on the screen.

Videos

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.

Flyers

Flyers are placed in a rotation. Each is displayed for 15 seconds.

Flyers that advertise for an upcoming 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.
