Today we are announcing the release of RightBooth version 6.3. This version is available as a free upgrade to all RightBooth 6 users and it contains the following new features...
Control the Switching of Peripheral Equipment
The Denkovi board connects to your computer via a USB cable. You can then connect external electrical devices to the board’s relay connections and use RightBooth to switch these devices on or off at various times throughout the event.
A typical example of this would be to configure RightBooth to switch on a light at the start of each video recording, then turn it off when the recording is completed.
There are full details on how to do this in the latest RightBooth User Manual (and Help file) which you will find installed with the updated software.
See this Blog post for an example on how to use the denkovi board.
Running Remote Programs
We have added new event actions to allow you to run other software directly from RightBooth while it is playing an event. This can be triggered by the user when they click on any item on one of the event screens or it can be made to happen automatically whenever an event screen is displayed, courtesy of the new screen Show Action (see below).
Examples of how you might use this feature:
It is now possible to add a 'Show action' to any RightBooth event screen.
Your chosen action will then occur each time the associated screen is shown during the playing event. Using this action it becomes possible to synchronise the activities mentioned above, for example:
- turning on lights when the 'Get ready' screen is shown
- turning lights off when the 'Thank you' screen is shown.
- running another program with the Start screen is shown.
RightBooth is DPI Aware
What does this mean?
Basically, RightBooth now detects how your Windows display is configured and will change its user interface to suit.
This means that RightBooth should now be consistent on any display size and at any display scale combination that you have chosen in your Windows Display Settings.
