It is possible to temporarily take over the lineair broadcast on the Timeline of your Tradecast platform with a live stream signal. This allows you to temporarily interrupt your linear broadcast with a video signal that is made available live to the viewers on your platform. In this article, we explain how you can temporarily take over the Timeline with a live stream signal.
Taking over the Timeline with a livestream signal begins by logging into your Tradecast platform's CMS. Clicking on Timeline in the main menu will take you to the screen where you can manage the Timeline. By clicking on the 'Start Timeline Takeover' button at the top right of the Timeline, you will begin the process of temporarily taking over the Timeline with a livestream signal.
In the next screen, you either choose an already created livestream or click the 'Create Livestream' button to create a new livestream. If you choose an already created live stream, the screen will open where you can specify, among other things, after how many minutes and hours the Timeline should be taken over by the live stream. If you create a new live stream to take over the Timeline with, the screen that allows you to create a new live stream opens.
The Timeline will rebroadcast the already created linear broadcast when you hit the 'Stop livestream takeover' button, which can be found under 'Livestreaming' in the main menu of your video platform.
