Create a Template
The Properties window will open. In the Name field, give your template a descriptive name.
In the Size field, type in the dimensions (width and height) which matches the resolultion of your display. For most modern flat panel displays, "1080p" is used which is 1920 x 1080.
If you want to change the background color of the template, click the ellipsis next to the Color field and select a color. By default, the template color is black. To adjust the color transparency, move the opacity slider.
If you want to use an image for the template background, click on the Location/Url button .
Add a Suggested Recurrence as desired.
Use sequence regions to rotate between multiple templates / sign designs. This controls how long one template plays before switching to the next template.
- None: Default. Used when there are not multiple templates.
- Name of an existing region: Select which region’s content is played to completion before the template is considered to be finished playing. When multiple templates are scheduled, if a region is not selected, the software selects a random region.
When a sequence region is selected, the template plays until the content in that region is finished, which triggers the next scheduled template.
Assume there are several templates scheduled at a player. For the first template, Template 1, “T1 Main” is selected as the sequence region, which has several pieces of scheduled content. Regardless of the amount or length of content scheduled to play in the other regions of Template 1,Template 1 plays until the content in “T1 Main” has played to completion, which triggers Template 2 to play. Similarly, Template 2 plays for as long as it takes for the content in its designated sequence region to play, etc.
Click OK and save the template.
