How USC Price Used Enplug for Commencement
Thousands of students graduated from the University of Southern California earlier this month, and Enplug got to be a part of the experience.
The Sol Price School of Public Policy’s satellite ceremony was held at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, where large screens displayed attendees’ photos and tweets as the graduates got ready to walk across the stage.
Before and after the ceremony, Instagrams and tweets mentioning @USCPrice and #USCgrad were displayed in real-time on the jumbo screens. Students posted pictures with messages of gratitude and excitement, and family members posted pictures of their graduates to wish them congratulations.
USC Price also displayed graphics with commencement information, quotes and photos of graduate rings. During the ceremony, the screens were used to display a live video feed of the speakers, including the event’s speaker, former NFL player Curtis Conway.
“We needed a powerful but cost-effective way of showcasing social media on large projection screens during our commencement ceremony,” said Jonathan Schwartz, Digital Video Manager at USC Price. “The simple user interface and streaming media device combined with the ability to capture posts from all major social media platforms while still having the ability to moderate them made Enplug the obvious choice for us.”
Schwartz added: “The social media video wall was a huge success as graduates and their friends and families posted during the ceremony and saw that result instantaneously, significantly increasing the school’s reach and interaction with its audience both during and after the ceremony.”
Congratulations to all the new graduates!
