Tech Tip: Sync Video Type

By José FernándezProduct Deployment Manager

Tech tip:
COVE has added a new feature called “Sync videos type”. This feature allows stations to decide where they want a particular video to appear. For example, if a station does not want a video to appear on mobile devices via the PBS mobile app, then simply uncheck “Synchronize mobile profiles”. COVE will then process the video without creating mobile assets such as iPhone and iPad versions. If stations want the video to appear both on mobile and web, then simply leave both boxes checked.

Bonus tip:
You can use this feature to coordinate marketing around your video content, such as mobile only premiers (turn off “synchronize web profiles” checkbox) or longer availability online (turn off “synchronize mobile profiles” checkbox).
