Rise is a digital signage application that allows users to create presentations then post them on displays. This system offers an easy and quick method to create and post professional looking material, without the need of extensive graphics knowledge. You can post material created by yourself or choose from the 100+ professionally designed templates in Rise Vision to get started quickly.  

Along with graphics, you can post video, animation, image and live streaming.

  1. How to create a new posting: you will need to
    1. upload material from your desktop 
    2. create a presentation, this will be the layout of the material as it will appear on the display 
    3. add the presentation to a schedule, this will define when the item will display and on which device / monitor.  Schedules have been created that will correspond to monitors and will have the same name assigned as the monitor to which it is assigned.
  2. What is a presentation
  3. What is a schedule
  4. Change or forgot password:  go to and select "log in" as you normally would to sign in.  On the sign in page select "forgot your password?" and follow the steps listed.
  5. Schedule an individual presentation to start / stop displaying on a specific date / time:  when adding the presentation to the schedule, un-check the option titled "timeline" - this will open up the field to set the schedule for the individual presentation.  If the presentation is already listed in the schedule, edit it and un-check the option titled "timeline".
  6. Would like to have my material posted on another department's location.  Once you have created a presentation, you would need to share the presentation (also includes information on how to post material that was shared).  Once you have shared it, send out a notice to individual(s) responsible for the location(s) where you wish to have your presentation posted, so they may review and post the presentation/template. 
  7. Are their guidelines when creating a presentation?  Rise Vision does have a guide for best practices.
