1) Configure the program source
In the PROGRAM section of the Settings, the first tab SOURCE allows to select the radio playout system. In our case, we don't use an actual system, and so we select "ALWAYS LIVE" which is a pseudo-source enabling some graphics features in Radio.
2) Create and associate the relevant Scene
In the LINKER tab, we can now create a Scene (here called "Speaker"), which should contain (at least) one associated Titler file with a Speaker element (here called "Titrage").
Then, we link this Scene with the program type "Generic program", which is the talk show case (the "ALWAYS LIVE" pseudo-source is always in this case, as its name indicates).
3) Configuring the Speaker
To get the Speaker detected and used by automated titling, it needs to be configured to use the "LiveMic=" condition in its data. This can be done either manually:
Or automatically, thanks to the link system provided in the LIVE TEST tab.
Our initial state with the Scene selected, but the Speaker not configured:
We can select the Speaker from the list, and press ASSOCIATE:
Then, once linked, the option disappear, replaced by this information:
4) Live exploitation
On the Radio live view, the MIC SPEAKERS tab is now active. It allows creating titling lines and configuring microphones associations.
I've selected mic 1, and I'm assigning a data line:
Then, you can repeat this operation for all mics and modify it as needed when the show changes.
NB: Currently, there is no naming automation. The users can create several Speakers and several Scenes, then different conditions in the Linker to automatically switch from one show to the next.
5) Timing options
From the live MIC SPEAKERS panel, you can customize timings:
- Minimum duration: once the titling is displayed, it will stay at least that duration, even if someone else starts speaking.
- Maximum duration: this is the default duration of a titling. If the situation changes, it might be shorter.
- Minimum delay: after somebody starts speaking and is shown in the video, we apply this delay before showing the auto-titling.
- Maximum interval: this defines the repetition interval between two titlings.
