Precise Presentation Scheduling

Hello,

I am attempting to make a certain Presentation (that will auto-play a Vimeo video) broadcast to two Displays at exactly 10:25 AM and 10:55 AM, but I'm running into road blocks with the Schedule interface, as I want it to automatically resume its normal schedule after the video Presentation plays. When I attempt to do this, I get an overriding error, as I cannot have multiple schedules running on the same display. 

Any ideas for a workaround?

Thanks.

Hi Colin,

Are you adding the vimeo video as it's own presentation in the schedule?

Thanks for your reply, Blake.

Yes, the Presentation is simply a title Placeholder and a Vimeo Placeholder. Should I try to make the Vimeo Placeholder part of another, different Presentation, playing only at the times I want?

Colin,

That would be the easiest way to accomplish what you are looking to do!

Okay, that sounds good. The only problem with that is making it resume its normal Scheduling after the time is up, since we have multiple Presentations in the Schedule at once.

On the same hand, I would also have to make sure that the correct Presentation is playing at the times I need.

Let me know what you think, thanks.

Colin,

You can add the same presentation to the schedule multiple times. An example would be

Main presentation 11:00am-10:25am
Video presentation 10:25am-10:30am
Main presentation 10:30am-10:55am
Video presentation 10:55am-11:00am

Oh right! That makes sense!

Thanks for your help, Blake.
