Dynamic Content

We provide tools and reference materials that aid the development and implementation of dynamic content on Broadsign Control Player.

  • BroadSignPlay(): Allows the Broadsign Control Player to call special JavaScript functions when a web page is about to appear on screen.
  • Content Variables: Broadsign Control can run content that pulls variables and customizes behaviours on-the-fly.
  • External Saturation Schedule: Allows third-party tools to directly control and modify a campaign's saturation values.
  • HTML5 Content: Broadsign supports the display of dynamic HTML5 content, including the use of Chromium.

    Note: As of Broadsign Control v15.4, we support Chromium version 87+ (with security patches to version 94).

  • SmartFeed: SmartFeed builds on Broadsign's existing monitor sync feature (see The Monitor Sync Section). You can enter scripts in Broadsign Control Administrator to dynamically activate content based on triggers you choose.
  • Synchronization Monitor: The File Synchronization Monitor provides a mechanism for periodically updating local files from a remote source.
  • Text-to-Speech: Broadsign Control Player offers the Text-to-Speech (TTS) functionality via the BroadSignObject.
