First of all I’m sorry if I’m about to ask something that has already been asked before. I looked through all forum categories but couldn’t find any topic that described the situation that I’m in.
I recently found out about Xibo and I’m now investigating into it to see if it can replace the commercial software currently being used for our outdoor digital billboards.
We sell advertising space on our billboards. Every ad has a standard duration of 6 seconds, with a variable number of repeats per hour. This ranges from 30 times per hour (once per 2 minutes) to 600 times per hour (full-time) and a few more steps in between.
So what we need to achieve is to schedule small events like this, that will repeat every x times per minute or hour. In between the events we want to show standard fillers.
I have tried to accomplish this by using a playlist and set the number of spots but since we don’t want the ads to run more times than the clients have paid for, we would have to fill each spot of 6 seconds individually which would be very time consuming.
So my final question: Is there a functionality which we could apply in our use case to easily schedule a repeat with these conditions?
Thanks in advance!
