Overlay and Action Buttons

Below the playlist you will find the buttons for controlling the overlays and the actions.

Overlays can be graphics or videos (with or without transparency), text overlays / text crawlers or HTML websites or templates, which you can place manually or automatically over the output video signal during playback from the playlist.

Actions are individual media files in direct access. Pressing an action button interrupts the current playback and starts the stored media file. You can set how PLAYDECK should behave after the action file has finished playing. Action buttons can also send internal or external TCP commands. Please refer to chapter 4.2 Working with Actions for more details.
