This special ad copy type is for both of the following products:
- Broadsign Creator messages on your players.
For more information about this feature, see Broadsign Creator.
- Broadsign Publish messages on your players. For more information about this feature, see Broadsign Publish.
Note: The player decides whether the ad copy is for Broadsign Publish or Broadsign Creator based on its Configuration, specifically, in the add-on section: The Add-ons Section.
For general information about ad copies, see Ad Copies.
Note: By default, as of v12.1, Broadsign Control supports valid HTTPS website URLs.
Note: Any message created in Broadsign Creator will be fetched in advance, as soon as the player becomes aware of it. Then the player will play the message back directly from its local disk.
To add a Broadsign Publish or Broadsign Creator ad copy, use one of the following methods:
Go to the Schedules ribbon and select the arrow on the Ad Copy icon. Then, from the drop-down menu, select Broadsign Publish/Creator.
From the resource tabs on the left, select Ad Copies. Then, right-click anywhere in the work area. From the contextual menu, select New, then select Broadsign Publish/Creator Ad Copy.
By default, the Add Broadsign Publish/Creator Ad Copy Wizard contains the following pages:
- Welcome – Name the Broadsign Publish or Broadsign Creator ad copy.
Note: You need to ensure that the duration of your Broadsign Publish ad copy, in Broadsign Control Administrator, aligns with its duration in Broadsign Publish. Imagine that you schedule your Broadsign Publish ad copy to a campaign or bundle, in Broadsign Control Administrator, with a duration of 60 seconds. However, you originally set the message duration in Broadsign Publish to 120 seconds. The duration of the message in Broadsign Publish will override the duration in Broadsign Control Administrator. As a result, the ad copy will play for 120 seconds.
To edit a Broadsign Publish or Broadsign Creator ad copy, use the same method used for standard ad copies. See Edit Ad Copy Properties.
