BallyhooTVTM version 2.1 has launched!

February 21, 2013

Emmatt Digital Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce the release of BallyhooTVTM version 2.1. With this release comes many changes to the BallyhooTV backend, providing more robust content control than ever, especially for multi-channel customers!

BallyhooTV V2.1 New Features

  1. Master timelines are now available – Easily edit or create content that feeds all channels
    1. Can be turned off at the channel level
    2. Channel timelines are still available – when used, they run immediately after the Master timeline content for that channel
      1. This allows you to, if desired, to use unique information at the channel level along with the Master timeline information
    3. The viewer experience is one complete timeline
  2. The Timeline edit screen has been reorganized into one screen only
    1. As new timelines are added they are available from the dropdown list
  3. Master Tickers are now available – Easily edit or create ticker content that feeds all channels
    1. Can be turned off at the channel level
    2. Channel tickers are still available – when used, they run immediately after the Master ticker content for that channel
    3. This allows you to, if desired, to use unique ticker information at the channel level along with the Master ticker information
    4. The viewer experience is one complete ticker
  4. Emergency Ticker mode is now available – Easily emphasize important ticker information with an alert background colour
  5. More RSS weather options are now available
  6. Some screens have been reorganized

How do these changes affect me?

If you have a single channel account, you will notice that the timeline page and ticker page in the backend has been simplified to one page. You can now create and manage your timelines from one page.

Those who have multiple channels will notice the same features as single channel customers, but will have the benefits of creating a master timeline and ticker that can display on all channels (create content once and it feeds all channels as specified) in addition to unique channel content.

What do I need to do to upgrade?

Absolutely nothing! The changes have already been made to the platform, so no upgrades are needed, and no fees required!
