To submit items to Cheshire TV’s Community Bulletin Board on Channel 1302, e-mail/upload a 640×480 JPEG or PPT image of your existing slide to us at [email protected] .
When creating a slide, please take care not to place text close to the edges of the frame, as some TVs will crop the broadcast image and information will be lost. Also, take note that vertically-oriented posters and flyers don’t work well on horizontal TV and computer screens. Create a simplified, landscape version of your flyer to achieve a professional-looking slide for TV.
When designing a graphic, try to include only basic information like event name, date & time, place, ticket or contact info, etc. Long lists of attractions, small text, and paragraphs can generally not be seen on TV, and the space that could have presented useful information to your viewer is occupied with… blurry stuff.
Alternately, if you email the basic info to us in text, we’ll create a no-frills info slide for you.
Still don’t really know how your slide should look? Feel free to use this handy TV Safe Powerpoint template we’ve made! The slide features a blue box which represents TV safe space. Feel free to delete the box and alter the slide any way you wish, but make sure all your information is inside the blue box before you delete it. Lastly, make sure to export your slide as a JPG before you send it to us at [email protected]. You can get the template here.
We can also help you create a video presentation (like a PSA or “commercial”) that would air regularly on Channel 1301, far more fun and interesting! For information on creating a promo/PSA, contact us.
