Before we get started, let’s briefly look at the main differences between each link:

The Production Link is intended to be overlayed in your main production/program output that is being broadcasted to your audience.

The Production Link can only be used ONCE at any given time to ensure the accuracy of the advertising analytics that LIGR collects for each match, if using Graphics + Brands. The user should only use the Production Link ONCE and that would be for your live event. If you get an error message saying that the link is IN USE, it means that your URL has been copied into another location, such as an inactive source within your switching software or the link is open within a web browser. There are steps to create a new Production Link that will be explained later on in this article.

If the user has copied the Production Link into a switching software and then tries to copy it into a web browser you will see the below image:

If the user has copied the Production Link into their preferred switching software more than once then the same information will appear in the top left of the output window.

If you wish to test or share the output of your LIGR graphics, use the Monitoring Link. This can be used multiple times in your switching software or copied and pasted into a web browser.

The user can access the Production & Monitoring Links by following the steps below:

  • Click Matches in the left hand side dashboard.

  • Click the 3 ellipsis next to the match you wish you get the overlay link for.

  • Select Links.

  • Then select which link you would like to copy depending on if you’re using it for your live broadcast or for monitoring.

If the user gets a message that the link is IN USE, they can create a new overlay which will generate a fresh Production Link. That can be done by following the steps below:

  • Click Matches in the left hand side dashboard.

  • Click the 3 ellipsis next to the match you wish to get the overlay link for.

  • Select Add New.

  • An additional line will appear under the selected match, clicking the arrow above the selected match will reveal an additional line below it.

  • Click the 3 ellipsis next to the match you wish you get the overlay link for.

  • Select Links.

You have now successfully created a new Production Link that can be used on your production.
