If you are looking to play your own ads into your broadcast with Production Truck the Video Clips feature is your best option. However, if you do not have any ads to play but you would like to fill some time in your broadcast you are welcome to use our ad trigger to fire of advertisements. When you use the Ad Trigger feature the system will use advertisements from an advertising bank that BlueFrame Technology manages. This is an easy way for broadcasters to fill dead space in their broadcasts.
1. To fire off an ad you'll go to the Ad Trigger buttons on the right side of Production Truck.
2. You'll first select the duration of the ad break that you wish. Then click the Fire Ad button.
3. You will see a countdown timer begin below in the center of Production Truck to signify when the ad break will begin. Once the ad break has started that will change to a countdown timer for how much time is remaining in the break.
4. If you need to stop the ad break early, click the Stop Ad button. This will stop the ad break and you can continue with your broadcast. You're viewers will see the rest of the advertisement that they were watching and they will see the broadcast from where you started broadcasting again.
Note: You can also change the countdown timer duration and the different durations of the ad breaks by going into the preferences window and then Timers.
