Description

Displays information about the next talk, talks in other rooms and generic room information. Scheduling information is imported from a https://frab.cccv.de/ export.

Configuration

Sets a logo. Size should be 280x100 pixel. Otherwise the image will be scaled to that size which might lead to a reduced quality.

Current room

How long to show information about the (upcoming) talk in the current room. Default is 15 seconds.

The current talk is displayed for the first 25 minutes of that talk. So in case of a delayed start the screen will stil show useful information.

After 25 minutes into the talk this screen will show information about the next talk.
