IPTV Ticker Overlay (“Ticker”) is a feature module of InfoValue’s IPTV platform that effectively disseminates and overlays messages on IPTV endpoints (“TVs”), including smart TVs and set-top boxes. Starting a Ticker message is as simple as entering the Ticker text message, selecting the targeted TVs and clicking on the send button. Ticker messages can also be scheduled in advance for single execution or recurring executions. Ticker messages have optional settings for the number of repeats, the theme, e.g. regular or alert, and the layout position, e.g. the top or bottom of the screen. All Ticker message deliveries are recorded to enable future auditing. Administrators and operators perform all operations on the “Ticker Console”, which runs on most browsers on Windows & Mac PCs and iOS& Android tablets and smartphones .
