Content Studio: How to create Media RTD for Balls, Strikes, Outs

Topic

  • How do you create MediaRTD Balls, Strikes, and Outs in Content Studio?

Environment

  • Product: Content Studio
  • Component: All Sport 5000, DakStats Baseball, DMP-8000, DMP-7000
  • Control System: Show Control System (SCS)
This article is meant to show you how to put Media RTD into use. Refer to Content Studio: How do I create media RTD fields?

Steps

Media RTD fields are fields that display images for real time data fields, instead of data.  Example: I want to use traffic lights or some other graphic as my Ball, Strike, and Out indicators instead of 1, 2 and 3.

  • DMP-8000 Supported File Types:  VMPL, VMPF, AVI, BMP, JPG, JPEG, PNG, MPG, MPEG, and SWF
    • Images must stored in the MediaRTD folder, located under C:\Program Data\Daktronics\VNET4\Content\MediaRTD
  • DMP-7000 Supported File Types: BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF, and TIF
    • Images must be stored in the Bitmaps folder, located under D:\V7000\Bitmap
       
  • What the file should be named:
    • Balls, Strikes, and Outs come into the Daktronics system identically as the numbers 1, 2 and 3. For example when there are 3 balls entered, the data field is the number 3. Therefore the files for Balls, Strikes and Outs are named 1.png, 2.png and 3.png. The same 3 files are used for all 3 RTD fields.
       
  • What content studio RTD field to use:
    • Game In Progress: Baseball - Balls, Strikes Outs (Fields from All Sport)
    • Game Stats: DakStats BA - Balls, Strikes, Outs (Fields from DakStats)

  • What application the stat comes from:
    • Can come from either the All Sport or DakStats Baseball. Daktronics recommends using the All Sport.
       
  • What the file would look like:
    • Typically, brightly colored dots or baseballs are used as the indicators for Balls, Strikes and Outs on top of solid colored backgrounds. Often times, place holders for the upcoming Balls, Strikes, and Outs will be slightly grayed out or darkened to indicate where they will go.

  • The number of Balls/Strikes/Outs will update automatically as the numbers are entered into the All Sport or into DakStats.
