Title: Scroll Speed increase
Post by: Paul of Mo on February 01, 2016, 09:26:49 AM
Ronnie on the live chat was great with this but I would like to make a request for change (RFC).

I have low vision clients and we are using DS to create a large text scroll so they can read text messages sent to them.   

The issue is that the larger the text size is the slower the scroll moves.  The slider for speed is not "long enough" and needs to have a faster setting (RFC).  Once we get above 6 or 8 inch tall letters the scroll speed becomes so slow that it is frustrating for them or even not usable.

Could it be changed that the speed option be a numeric box like text size is / and or / the slider made to have a higher fast side?

also:

I have retail clients - If I could create a timeline with a huge horizontal scroll that moved quickly then I could market DS as an alternative to an expensive LED/dot matrix window signs.   We could have a nice background with 10 inch letters moving promptly across the center of the clients TV. Simple and would be very easy to market.

Thanks so much!

Paul

edit:  I have also noticed that the text size box also seems to have a maximum size of 720 - We can make the letters about 6 or 8 inches tall on a 32 inch TV, nice and big but we have clients that need even bigger text (another RFC). 

In a nut shell we need great big freaking huge text scrolling across the screen at a quicker pace so our visually impaired clients can read at a normal adults reading speed.

Thanks again,

- Paul

this will be addressed later on this year when we start releasing the new Touch based components, which are GPU powered.
They will have new options such as larger fonts, smoother GPU scrolling and more.
Please follow us on twitter for updates

and you will be able to use them for touch or plain DS....!

Thanks and that is wonderful.

I am making business decisions based on this so for clarity:

What is the estimated time for the upgrade?

Will it have faster scrolling speeds as well as larger text size?  - Scrolling speed is the most important feature for my vision impaired clients.  I have one that needs 15 in tall bright green letters on a black background and they need it to scroll at a normal reading speed.

Lastly - Will this new enhancement run on your lower end equipment such as the droid 90's that you used to sell?

Thanks so much for a great product and the great service.

I was told a few weeks back that this had be forwarded to development for review.  Is there any update on this request?  I now have nearly 30 vision impaired clients that use a large font RSS horizontal scroll to read text messages.  They love the feature but hate the slow scroll speeds.

Thanks so much!

I am revisiting this request for change. 

I sat with a lady today who has macular degeneration and when we increased the font size to something she could just barely see the text scrolled so slowly that she cried because of the frustration.

Our solution allows people who are almost completely blind to read text messages right on their TV's.  This is a good thing.  This is a needed thing.  For many it is the last option available to still be able to receive and read text messages.

We need to be able to increase the scrolling speed - these people need to have the scrolling speed increased.  PLEASE!

Ronnie on the chat is awesome - he is still working with me to find a solution.  He is a valuable asset to MS.

thanks for the heads up.
you will be happy to know we are developing a new set of components including tickers that are part of the new (IDS) Interactive Digital Signage that you will be able to take advantage of for your needs.

These components (GPU powered) are set to begin releasing at the end of 2016.

Will "tickers" be able to be populated by an RSS feed?  If not then they will not solve my issue.

I take a text message, script it into an RSS feed, and then use DS to display it as a horizontal scroll across the center of the clients TV.

Any possible way to just change the upper speed limit on the RSS resource? It should just be a change to one line of code. 

Thanks!

the code is locked as it's been open for changes submitted to next release, but we will address it with mediaTOUCH.

If you need someone to beta a pre release I would be honored.  We need this speed solution as soon as posible.

It is near the end of 2016.  Do we have an update on increasing scroll speed and font size?

Thanks!
Title: Re: Scroll Speed increase
Post by: admin on November 04, 2016, 04:01:05 PM
well it's a LOT more ...
we are set to release a whole set of new components starting at the beginning of 2017.
so instead of just hacking the scroll, you will soon see an AMAZING, GPU powered SUPER smooth scroll with lots of new options, including fades, faster speeds and more.
we opted to deliver a better solution moving all new components to support GPU level touch support with GPU acceleration.
2017 will be ground breaking release year for digitalsignage.com

Thanks

Do we have a resolution to the scroll speed issue?  I would love to roll out more services for the vision impaired.

We need 15 inch tall letters scrolling quickly across the TV screen.  Simple as that.

Thanks!

Post by: Nikelfaw on June 20, 2017, 12:08:43 PM
i can only play in voobly because of the render in 32 bit option,but outside of voobly or while watching recs my scroll speed goes extremly slow also,it depends on the resolution
for example in 800 x 600 is ok
in 1280 x 1040 slow but playable
1920 x 1080 EXTREMLY slow 11

is there a solution? because i cant play by ip/gameranger in a ok speed.
thanks in advance

Revisiting this:

I do not see any changes to the RSS resource in the studio - can you send me information as to where it is and how it works?

We just need extremely large text scrolling from right to left at a speed equivalent to a typical adults reading level.

I am posting to thank MediaSigange for resolving this issue.

One of our services allows persons with significant vision impairments to read emails and text messages directly on their TV's. 

We loaded the newest version of the Studio and now can create incredibly huge text along with wonderfully fast scrolling speeds!

FUN!

Recently we have also been selling this to retail clients as an alternative to the ugly and clunky "signtronix" type displays.


Summary:

We give our clients TV's an email address.

Our customers can simply send an email or text message directly to their TV and the content instantly scrolls across the screen.

They can add images to a slideshow and even change the background image simply by sending an email / text message.

Nothing for them to learn - it is just a TV and an email address.

I am still looking to partner with another Forum member to market this across a wider area - We are currently in 2 states.

Thanks so much!
