Our company has a device that display ads, video, etc and I have it assigned to a static IP.  How do I monitor the bandwidth this device is using?

If you have SNMP enabled switch, this is a great tool to monitor bandwidth.

A quick and dirty solution would be to put Wireshark on the device or on a port mirror of its switch port and just look at the statistics section.
