Drupal-based digital signage

There seems to be some interest and use case for Drupal-based digital signage. bneil, AndrewGearhart, and btopro had a good conversation in #drupal-edu about some ideas and thought we needed to start collecting our ideas.

Let's use this wiki as a place to start organizing ourselves around what our requirements are and what general functionality we can share between our institutions.

Hopefully we'll end up with a nice list of requirements that we can work together to build a solid base for Drupal digital signage.
