Content Studio: How to create Media RTD for Out of Town Scores

Topic

  • How do you create MediaRTD for Out of Town Scores in Content Studio?

Environment

  • Product: Content Studio
  • Component: SportsWire 4000, Out-of-Town Data Studio
  • Control System: Show Control System (SCS)
This article is meant to show you how to put Media RTD into use. Refer to Best Practice for Creating Media RTD Fields in Content Studio, DD3070725.

Steps

Media RTD fields are fields that display images for real time data fields, instead of data.  Example: I want to use graphics to indicate number of outs and runners on the base for out of town games. I'd also like to indicate whether those games are in the top or bottom of the inning using a graphic.

This example uses DakStats Baseball as an example. However, this feature can be used with other stat programs and sports that interface with Daktronics Show Control System

  • 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

Top/Bottom Indicator

  • What the file should be named:
    • The data comes into the Daktronics system as the letters T and B. Therefore, the file for the top indicator should be T.png and B.png for the bottom indicator (since the data comes across the same for the In Game Data and Out of Town Data, your inning indicator arrows will be the same).
  • What content studio RTD field to use: 
    • Out-of-town Scores: Expanded - T.SWI4K.GAME1.TOP and BOTTOM INDICATOR (BMP) (Games 1-8 are available)

  • What application the stat comes from:
    • SportsWire 4000
  • What the file would look like:
    • The top/bottom inning indicators are typically up/down triangles or dots that are a bright color that sit above or below the current inning on top of a solid colored background.

On Base Indicator

  • What the file should be named:
    • The data comes into the Daktronics system as the letter X. Therefore, you will pull all three on base indicator RTD fields onto the field (diamond) graphic and use the same Media RTD file for all the on base indicators. The file should be named X.png
  • What content studio RTD field to use: 
    • Out-of-town Scores: Expanded - T.SWI4K.GAME1 ON BASE 1-3 INDICATOR (BMP) (Games 1-8 are available)
  • What application the stat comes from:
    • SportsWire 4000
  • What the file would look like:
    • On base indicators are brightly colored diamonds that are a different color than the baseball diamond and solid background they are displayed on.

Outs

  • What the file should be named:
    • The data comes into the Daktronics system as the letter O. Therefore, you will pull both out indicator RTD fields onto the background graphic and use the same Media RTD file for both outs. The file should be named O.png
  • What content studio RTD field to use: 
    • Out-of-town Scores: Expanded - T.SWI4K.GAME1 OUT 1-2 INDICATOR (BMP) (Games 1-8 are available) 
  • What application the stat comes from:
    • SportsWire 4000
  • What the file would look like:
    • Typically, brightly colored dots or baseballs are used as the indicator Outs on top of solid colored backgrounds. Often times, place holders for Outs will be slightly grayed out or darkened to indicate where they will go
