Most Titler Live products can display data from multiple sources in one graphic, including sports databases, game clocks, news feeds, and more. Complete the steps in this article to connect your design to multiple data sources.
Note: This feature is not available in Titler Live Express.
- In Titler Live's playout interface, open a project (if a project isn't already open) that includes a graphic that you want to connect to multiple data sources.
Tip: Want to create a new graphic? Open the Library panel and drag a design from the library to the playlist.
- If you haven't already connected a graphic to one data source and set up that data source, visit the Connect data to designs section of our help center and complete the steps in an article that describes the data source you need.
The following example shows a playlist with one graphic that is connected to one Stat Crew data source.
- You can select inputs from the Inputs menu at the top of the playout interface or from the Input field in the Attributes panel or playlist.
- Want to remove an input from a graphic? Right-click (Windows) or Control + click (Mac) on the name of an input in the Edit / Preview panel and choose Remove input. (If a graphic's inputs are not visible in the Edit / Preview panel, click the Show Inputs button.)
- To connect a graphic to a second data source, click the Input drop-down list for the graphic that is already connected to one data source, then select and set up another data source, as described in articles in the Connect data to designs section of our help center.
The following example shows a playlist with one graphic that is connected to multiple data sources.
- If you want to connect additional data sources to your design, repeat the previous step for each new data source.
- If you haven't already connected variables from each data source to objects in your design, see one of the articles in the Connect data to designs section of our help center to connect and disconnect variables. (Tip: You can drag and drop variables in the Edit / Preview panel or, if licensed, select variables in the Title Designer.)
The following example shows a scoreboard design that is connected to a Stat Crew basketball input and a custom clock input.
When you broadcast the graphic, data from all input sources are automatically updated just like any graphic that is connected to one input.
