Title: Create timeline automatically with static images and paid advertising. ?
Post by: cloud on November 12, 2012, 07:29:29 PM
I have 6 static images.
All other images are dynamic, bought by anyone. (similar to AD Engine).

What I do is:
1 - People buy advertising.
2 - When I insert the image into the system, the system always stand between static images, example:
If I have 2 ads purchased, would look like this:
img = static image numbered 1 to 6.
ADS = advertising purchased.

TIMELINE created automatic with two advertisements purchased and 6 static images, would look like this:
img1 - ADS1 - img2 - ADS2 - img3 - img4 - img5 - img6

If I have: 10 ads purchased and 6 static images would look like this:
img1 - ADS1 - img2 - ADS2 - img3 - ADS3 - img4 - ADS4 - img5 - ADS5 - img6 - ADS6 - img1 - ADS7 - img2 - ADS8 - img3 - ADS9 - img4 - ADS10

(I want: static images automatically will repeat until the amount of paid advertising ends.)

Is is possible in AD Engine to create timeline automatically with static images and paid advertising. ??

If not, is there another way like this?

* Is confused to understand, but...  :'(

Thanks!  :D

Do you have any examples / case studies of what people have done with the API, would be interesting to know?

Topic Bump... 

My needs are simple and similar to what the original posts is about.  I'm trying to have an "automated" way to have only 3 "pools" of full-screen slides play.  One pool supporting the venue, one pool being "filler" and the last being paid ads. I want the timeline/loop to consist of:

1st - Venue
2nd - Paid Ad
3rd - Filler
4th - Paid ad
and repeat...

Is there a sample from MonsterSignage or from the Enterprise Collections or something that can do this???

I've asked LIVE Chat the other night and it's a no.

The only way to do it, is to write your own via the API when it's ready.

If anyone's interested, we can pool resources to do this?
