Topic

  • How do you create MediaRTD Possession Indicators in Content Studio? (Football/Basketball)

Environment

  • Product: Content Studio
  • Component: All Sport
  • 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 alphanumerical data.  

Example: I want to use an image of a basketball or football to indicate possession instead of < and > indicators.

  • DMP-8000 Supported File Types:  VMPL, VMPF, AVI, BMP, JPG, JPEG, PNG, MPG, MPEG, and SWF
    • Images must be 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:
    • Possession information comes into the Daktronics system as the abbreviation POSS. Therefore, the basketball or football image files need to be named POSS.png. 
                                                       Possession.png
  • What content studio RTD field to use (for this example we are using football):
    • Game In Progress: Football
      • Use Home/Guest Possession Text ('  ' or 'POSS')

  • What application the stat comes from:
    • Possession information comes from the All Sport console for both football and basketball.
  • What the file would look like:
    • Typically, brightly colored and/or realistic looking footballs or basketballs are used with a slightly grayed out placeholder near each team name and/or logo.

  • The football/basketball will fill in the placeholder depending on which team has possession as it is entered into the All Sport console.
