There are two main stages in deploying video to a sign.
To get things started, you need to add a video box to your sign. This will determine exactly where on the sign the video will appear e.g. you might want your video in the middle, surrounded by text and branding.
For now, you don’t need to worry about the actual video content itself, as this will be determined right at the end, once you are ready to deploy.
As well as deploying the sign, you will also be deploying a ‘playlist’ containing one or more videos. These are the videos that will then play within the video box on your sign.
This separation between the sign and the video playlist gives you some extra flexibility over your content. For example, you could re-use the same branded video sign across multiple locations but deploy different video playlists where local variations are required.
Adding a Video Box in Creator
Open your sign in Creator:
- Click the ‘Video Tool’ button in the Tools panel at the top left.
- This adds a half-width video box that you can drag to the desired location.
- To change the size of the video box, click the ‘Video Size’ drop-down menu in the ‘Tool Options’ panel. You can choose standard sizes such as quarter-size and full-screen. Alternatively if you choose ‘Custom’, you can drag the triangle symbol at the bottom-right of the video box to make it an arbitrary size.
