UNH TV: Carousel - Login & Navigation

Summary

This article provides an overview of the Carousel application, the software behind the TV displays located in buildings in Durham and Manchester. The Carousel software allows you to control the content in a designated area of the TV screen.

NOTE: The Carousel software is used for managing "local" content only. If you wish to broadcast University-wide, follow the current process  - upload content to ORCA TV.

Have a question? The Help icon to the right of the gear is context-sensitive and will take you to the appropriate help page for any given screen.

In the upper area of the application screen, the orange section displays your default zone, or the area of a TV screen you will have control over. Click on the zone name to activate a dropdown. The dropdown will display any additional zones you may have access to.

NOTE: Most users of Carousel will see only one zone available to them.

Below the orange area is the Main Menu. Here you can choose to create a New Bulletin, manage existing Bulletins, or manage any Media for use in the zone.
