External Ad Copy Source

An external ad copy automatically updates itself, based on the refresh period specified, from an external FTP, HTTP or HTTPS Server.

This feature allows you to automate the case where content needs to be frequently updated. Rather than manually upload and re-schedule the new content several times a day, you can create an external ad copy source and Broadsign Control Player will automatically download and display the most recent file that can be found on the remote server.
