HTML Package Ad Copy
An HTML Package ad copy allows you to schedule a self-contained HTML file that displays HTML5 content.
Broadsign stores the package's extracted files on the local system. As a result, you do not have to worry about network issues, or latency, during content playback.
For general information about ad copies, see Ad Copies.
Note: As of Broadsign Control v14.0, we support Chromium version 80+.
To add an HTML package 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 HTML Package.
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 HTML Package Content.
By default, the Add HTML Package Wizard contains the following pages:
- Welcome – Name the HTML package ad copy.
HTML Package Settings – Browse to locate and select the .zip file of your HTML package. Include the relative path to the root of the .zip archive.Copy
Sample directory structure:
| - bin (folder)
| - src (folder)
| - img (folder)
| - logs (folder)
| - html (folder)
- | - index.html
- | - foo.html
- | - bar.html
Note: Once Broadsign Control Player has extracted the files, you can access them on the local system and make changes as needed.
To edit an HTML package ad copy, use the same method used for standard ad copies. See Edit Ad Copy Properties.
Note: HTML package ad copy properties have a tab not present in standard ad copy properties: HTML Package.
