News Ticker On TikiLIVE – Live Streaming Solution

TikiLIVE is about interacting and connecting directly with your audience. That is why we are constantly adding new and exciting features to bring the streaming experience to the next level. One of the latest features we added on the platform is the News Ticker.

The News Ticker is a little program which scrolls the contents of a text file above the player on your channel page. The text appears in a so-called “appbar” which is similar the the Windows Taskbar. Any text line (using this format: „date [url] body of news”) can be dropped on the ticker and the program will begin to scroll that file’s contents.

To access and enable or disable the News Ticker option you need to login into your TikiLIVE account. If you don’t have an account yet you may sign up in a few seconds HERE.

The next step is to access your DashBoard and select the Edit Channel option from the Channels Menu. See the screenshot below:


You can easily turn the News Ticker ON or OFF and select from a drop-down menu hot the text will appear: from the left or from the right. Here is how the text can be inserted.

Note: In order to preview the News Ticker you need to save the channel details and click on Go To Channel button to view the changes made on the channel page.

Channel Manager Digital Signage Solution from Eyepartner


A digital signage solution needs a few hardware components to be able to deliver the content. The most common configuration includes a display screen , a media player and a content management server. The connection from the media player to the display screen is usually via VGA, DVI, HDMI or Component video connection and the one between the media player and the content server is via a Ethernet connection. IPTV technology allows digital signage to be used as a broadcasting method. In this case the content is being distributed using a playlist controlled by the digital signage content management server.

Those looking to utilize channel management software have several options. It is possible to use a web-based program if you are interested in handling the operation yourself. This software offers users some degree of control and can help curtail hours of time spent managing programs, videos and content. A better solution is often working with a provider such as Eyepartner.com.

Simplifying media play-out and monetizing large libraries of content built with video on demand assets has been a challenge to media producers and broadcasting networks alike. Eyepartner has developed a product called the “Channel Manager” which allows users to publish video and audio into playlists, complete with integrated advertisements, by seamlessly dragging and dropping content into the channel lineup.

TikiLIVE Channel Manager Digital Signage solution can be used virtually everywhere. Retailers may now coordinate the daily or weekly specials with the on-screen messaging in the store or kiosk.


Use plasma screens to display at the checkout counter to inform customers on sales and entertain customers while waiting in line. Every location such as your local bank or your doctor’s waiting room instantly becomes readily available high traffic locations ready to host a digital display network. They inform, educate, entertain and promote products and services relevant to any venue.

Blackmagic Intensity Pro streaming on TikiLIVE

Intensity allows you to capture and playback in the most incredible quality of HDMI and component analog video in both SD and HD. Smash the quality barrier for your video work because Intensity is not only the highest quality, but also affordable!

Working in HDTV is exciting, however HDV’s heavy compression and limited 1440 x 1080 resolution can cause problems with video quality and editing. Intensity Pro eliminates these problems by using direct capture from the camera image sensor at full 1920 x 1080 HDTV resolution and uncompressed video quality. Using it on TikiLIVE you will enjoy the best HD video streaming experience.

If your camcorder has an HDMI out, you can stream directly through the Intensity Pro. Hooking up your camera is just a matter of seconds. Just plug in your HDMI cable into the HDMI IN slot and you are ready to enjoy the stream on your computer.



Another option would be to use the component in cables:



Intensity Pro features high quality analog component RCA type connectors, and HDMI for use with a massive range of video cameras, televisions and projectors. Intensity Pro captures video in real time directly from the HDMI or analog component outputs of HDV cameras. Real time playback for client-monitoring and editing using large screen HDTVs or HD projectors is easy using the HDMI and analog component outputs.

Here you can view each connector detailed for the Intensity Pro break-out cable.

For the component connection, you will need to insert the 3 component connectors into:

* 7 R-Y IN – here you will connect the RED connector
* 8 Y IN – here you will connect the YELLOW connector
* 9 B-Y IN – here you will connect the BLUE connector

For the composite connection, you will need to insert the 3 component connectors into:

* 8 Y IN – here you will connect the YELLOW connector
* 14 AUDIO IN LEFT – here you will connect the WHITE connector
* 15 AUDIO IN RIGHT – here you will connect the RED connector

Have a look at this test video captured with Intensity Pro:

You can run some tests yourself if you have an Intensity Pro card using our last HD broadcaster called The HD Wave. Read more about The HD Wave HERE.
