Here is whats new in Show Control version 2.20

A Show Control system includes Display Studio, Content Studio and is associated with multiple types of digital media players. The new features listed below work best with an up-to-date DMP-8000 and Data Studio.
Version 2.20 includes enhancements to playlist pause mode functionality

Pause modes were previously a default setting done through a script button. Users could apply a pause on first or a pause on last mode for individual files. Here is the concept:

  • Pause on the first – allows the director to see the first frame of the content to know that it is queued up and ready to go.
  • Pause on the last – prevents content from going back to the beginning when the duration has ended.  

The latest version of Show Control allows users to apply pause modes to playlists. This will play multiple files and will have the ability to pause on the first and/or last frame of the entire playlist. This is ideal for when wanting to show multiple files before switching back to other content without the possibility of showing a blank frame. For more details, see How do I use pause content in Show Control with DMP-8000?

Also, users may want to customize their pause mode behavior on a specific Scripting or Quick Display button. This is now an option in the button configuration. For more details on this, see: How do I Create Scripting Containers and Buttons in Display Studio?

  1. For pause on last frame, will an RTD screen that is paused still update as the stats update?

      Pausing a file will also pause the data from updating.
