Set up Cover Images

BlendVision One allows you to set up a cover image for each status of your live event.

In this article details steps on editing the cover image for your live event:


Access the settings page of your live event

Cover images can only be edited during the following periods: 

  • When creating a live event
  • During the “Preparing” ~ “Preview” statuses after the live event is created

Manage the cover image for each status

BlendVision One Live module allows you to set different images for the statuses below:

  • Ready to Start: when the live event has built up resources and 12 hours before the scheduled date and time. (at “Wait for Preview” status) 
  • Preview: when the event is previewing (at “Preview” status)
    • This cover will only be displayed to the audience's player. The preview player in the control room during the “Preview” status will show the preview video for signal testing or rehearsal. 
  • Livestream ended/Before VOD: 
    • For live-only events: when the live ends (“Ended” status)
    • For events that enabled the Live-to-Vod function: when the live ends and waiting for VOD start ( “Encoding”~”VOD Ready” status)
  • Closed: when the entire live event and Live-to-VOD ends. (“Closed” status)

Note: you can refer to the Live Module Introduction for a detailed flowchart on status transition.
