|Pre-created graphics (posters, flyers)||contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org||< 2 business days after receipt|
|Pre-created full-motion video|
Following are best recommended specifications for pre-created graphics:
Size: 720x540 pixels (ideal)
Resolution: 72 or greater
Color mode: RGB (best for TV reception) or Black-and-white
Orientation: Horizontal (vertically-oriented graphics will have to be re-formatted for proper viewing)
If you submit a background image larger than 720x540, the image will be shrunk to fit those dimensions. Please be aware that resizing an image can result in a loss of quality.
About graphic text
Your message text should be legible on a TV screen. The suggested minimum text size for VBB messages is 24pt. Text smaller than 24pt will be difficult to read on a TV screen, especially at a distance.
Larger text sizes should be used for important information, such as your event title, location, date and time.
Acceptable image formats
The following image formats can be submitted in black and white or full-color. Black and white images will be left black and white unless you specify colorization (please allow extra time for colorization).
.PNG - most preferred
Microsoft PowerPoint (please allow additional time to convert PowerPoints to the usable format)
