The LiveScreen feature allows hosts to output a second display to a computer monitor, projector or TV screen, providing contestants with a wealth of extra visuals during, and in between, SpeedQuizzing games.
The LiveScreen can comprehensively display the scoreboard or slideshow, as well as in-play game info such as questions, answers, multiple choice options, picture questions and results.
There are three modes which can be selected for the LiveScreen.
All modes are overridden by gameplay whenever a question is in play, but it is designed to display one of the other three modes in between rounds and also in between questions.
An important thing to remember is that the LiveScreen is not designed to replace a quiz presenter, it is there to aid the presenter.
The default functionality assumes that you do not want contestants to see a question displayed on the LiveScreen until it has already been read out verbally by the presenter. Therefore you just need to operate SpeedQuizzing as you would normally when not utilising the Livescreen.
There is, however, in most of the game formats, an optional key press to allow questions to appear on the Livescreen prior to starting the 10 second countdown.
Note: Caution is advised when revealing a question on the LiveScreen prior to reading it out, as it can turn into a “Who’s the fastest reader” game, rather than who knows the answer first.
Note: Another thing to watch out for is spelling questions. You wouldn’t want “How many letters are in the word “Rhythm” displaying on the LiveScreen. Therefore on questions where this could happen you can tick the LiveScreen Blur tick box which can be used to temporarily block the LiveScreen from displaying a particular question.
