Quick Tip!

To integrate logos into your Hashtag Battle Live Display, make sure the image file is a .png with a transparent background (vector image file) in 200x200 pixel dimensions.

For Interstitials and background videos, don’t forget to take into account the screen ratio of the screen that your display will be shown on. If your screen is a standard 16:9 screen, your graphic or video should be created with the same ratio. If your screen is a vertical 9:16 screen, then your interstitials should be created for that ratio.

For Lower Third Displays, the Interstitial is confined to the active space, so be sure create your graphic or video in the same dimension as your Lower Third and within your safe zone. By default, the height is 30% of the display height. (Ex: in a 1920x1080 display, the Lower Third dimensions are 1920x324).
