Intro to Touch Points in Interactive and App Content

Touch Points allows you to add markers that overlay content in order to create interactive digital signage that can be used to either start a Campaign or playback a Fullscreen video. The Touch Points will not be visible in playback, so it is recommended to create MediaHD assets for the touch points to cover, almost like creating an interactive button.

A Compatible Touch Screen is required for successful interactive playback.

NOTE: It is important to remember that if you add a Touch Point to a Template, every Campaign that uses that Template will utilize the active Touch Points.

Adding Interactive Touch Points

In the Interactive and App Content section, click the Add Touch Point text.

A Touch Point will then populate in the top left corner of the preview screen.

Moving the Touch Point

To move the Touch Point, click and drag it to the desired location. 

Sizing the Touch Point

To scale the size of the Touch Point, drag out, or in, the arrow from the bottom right corner of the asset.

If you would like to change the dimensions, you can hold down the Shift key while scaling to customize the size to your liking.

Formatting Options

To change the formatting, double-click on the Touch Point to view the Format Window

Within the Format Window, you'll see the options below for the Touch Point:

  • Dimensions - Manually set the X and Y Coordinates and the Width and Height of the Touch Point.

  1. Play Campaign - Play a selected Campaign from your CommandCenterHD (CCHD) account.

  2. Play Fullscreen Video - Play a selected Video, from your MediaHD library, fullscreen.

When you are satisfied with the configuration and positioning of your Touch Point, click Apply and then Close at the bottom of the Format Window.
