Engaging stakeholders in the design of networked public display systems is a key factor for a successful long-term deployment. Previous work has identified these stakeholders as display providers, content producers, and content viewers. Yet reports on stakeholder engagement and their influence on system design and overall deployment processes are rare. Here, the authors describe the process of developing and installing a display network at a university over the course of three years. Their work uncovers the fuzziness of stakeholder roles and illustrates the compromises and practical decisions made during the design and deployment process when working within a university setting. Their experiences with the design and deployment of a public display network contribute to the knowledge of building and deploying systems "in the wild." This article is part of a special issue on pervasive displays.
