Signs and videos
By using the signs and videos manager panel, you can set up media for quick deployment during Breakroom presentations. Learn how to upload custom signs, create a video queue, and more.

Signs and videos overview

In some region template presentation zones, such as the 90-seat auditorium that comes standard with the Breakroom Conference and Desert Island region templates, you have the option of offering additional information in the form of static signs located near the main stage. You can also create a playlist of videos that you can then broadcast on the main screen. Both of these media types are controlled through the same interface, giving you the ability to effectively manage presentations in real time.

Above, you can see how the signs and video manager panel may appear once it is populated with your information. In this example, there are two signs and five videos available. The media order can be changed to facilitate rapid deployment, and the option to turn off signs or videos entirely is also available.
Signs are useful tools that can be used to:
  • Brand your event.
  • Identify presenters or video content.
  • Publish session information.
  • Present static slides while a video plays.
  • Assist with event transition and offer scheduling reminders (e.g. "Break in ten minutes").
