Welcome to Megaphone TV 4.0
Megaphone TV is excited to announce Megaphone TV 4.0, packed with new features for you and your viewers.
Here's what's new in Megaphone TV 4.0...
Let's take a look at Megaphone TV 4.0's new features in more detail, starting with MegaChatter 2.0.
MegaChatter 2.0 turns the second screen into a chat room where viewers can engage with the broadcast further than ever before.
Twitter Chat - Between Polls
Social Feed - During a Poll
To set up MegaChatter for use with your show, follow these steps:
MegaChatter will now appear on second screen, and in the bottom-left of Director, as shown below.

After MegaChatter is ready for use, you can return to Editor's MegaChatter dashboard at any time to change hashtags or accounts to match the topic of the day, feature a message for sponsorship, hide a message, or reconfigure MegaChatter's second-screen display.
To hide or a specific message in MegaChatter, use MegaChatter's Messages panel:
With a single click, enable Protected Mode to help prevent users from tampering with poll results and cheating at quizzes.
When a poll or quiz is protected, viewers will be asked to log into Facebook before voting or answering questions:
Protected Mode is available for both realtime broadcast polls and Megaphone Web Polls.
Note that when you want to maximize participation, or if you'd rather not require Facebook log in, simply turn off protected mode. We leave it up to you—it's only a mouse click away!
Your playlist is now protected! Users will be asked to log into Facebook before participating in your quiz or poll.
Share Your Vote lets your viewers post their votes to Twitter with a single click or tap.
With Share Your Vote, your viewers can express their opinion on topics that matter most to them, while promoting your coverage and bringing new viewers to your content.
To enable Share Your Vote for your show, contact your Megaphone TV representative.
Live Reactions—Megaphone's popular "emoji voting" product—has added new visual effects including Wave, Fountain, and Fire. For added visual interest, Live Reactions can now also be configured to show multiple reactions per vote (e.g., show three smileys every time a viewer taps or clicks).
To configure Live Reactions 2.0 for your show, contact your Megaphone TV representative.
With a single click, choose your show's theme for an entire playlist or a single scene.
To Select a Theme for a New Playlist
To Select a Theme for an Existing Playlist
To Select a Theme for an Individual Scene
Set sponsor, show, background, and foreground images or videos for all of your playlists in a single, central location.
To select media for All Playlists
Your Default Media settings will be used for scene or playlist that doesn't, itself, already have media selected.
To select a "header image" to appear at the top of viewer devices, under Show Media, select an image for "Mobile" and "Tablet/Desktop".
Copy scenes from one playlist to another without recreating them from scratch. Great for commonly used bulletins and evergreen questions such as "Will the home team win tonight?"
