Content Creation and Publishing


Through Direct Broadcast, staff are able to schedule content to be published directly to the in-room resident TV channel. To do this, staff must have access to your community’s Team Hub. Once you have confirmed access, follow the steps below to learn how to get started.

How to Schedule Video Content

To share video content as a community event for Direct Broadcast, you must create a virtual event. When creating a virtual event, staff will have the option to play the video on your in room TV channel. Simply select ‘Show on TV Channel’ and select ‘Link’ as the video source. To learn how this works, check out the tutorial below. 

How to Publish Static Content

When sharing content to your community’s Direct Broadcast channel, staff are given the option to share designs created in Team Hub, photos uploaded to your content library, or even slides created outside of Team Hub, such as in Canva or PowerPoint. If your content was created outside of Team Hub, simply ensure the design has first been uploaded to your Team Hub Content Library prior to following the steps outlined in the tutorial below.

How to Unpublish or Edit Direct Broadcast Content
