CONFIGURE DATALINK KEYS
DataLink™ is an astonishingly useful TriCaster Advanced Edition exclusive, allowing the handling and updating of text and image data from both internal and external source for use in title pages in realtime, as well as other purposes. Briefly, DataLink tracks variables, called DataLink keys, and their values, and updates these values on-the-fly when keys are used in title pages.
Since DataLink falls into the general realm of automation and also has access to external sources, complete coverage of its features and capabilities is found in the companion Automation and Integration Guide included with this product; but we’ll mention a few highlights as we go along in this manual as well.
The Manage group link labeled Configure Datalink Keys opens a dialog that allows you to pre-assign values to three special DataLink keys. These session keys serve as the default first and second line text inserts and image used by many of the supplied template title pages. (By taking a moment to populate these keys with, for example, a company name, motto, and logo, you will find much of the included graphic content ready to use for a given production without ever having to type another line.)
