Content Size Reference
Things to consider about your sign(s) BEFORE you begin creating content:
1. Is your sign Landscape or Portrait?
2. Image Resolution for Digital Displays
For most signs, save your images for web resolution at 72ppi (pixels per inch). If you are using a monitor with retina display, consider increasing the ppi to 192.
3. Common Display Dimensions
Common HD Display dimensions in pixels:
- 1280w x 720h
- 1366w x 768h
- 1920w x 1080h
All the signs listed here have a 16:9 aspect ratio and are for widescreen displays. Another common ratio is 4:3 for letterbox displays.
Most signs on Miami’s Oxford campus are 1920 x 1080 but double check your sign before you start creating content for it.
4. Working with a Split Screen?
Many signs on campus are landscape oriented with two ads displaying at the same time, each taking up half of the screen. The dimensions for content on these displays is 960w x 1080h.
