Launcher Ads & Announcements

SpringboardVR Feature Spotlight

No VR center is the same. Each VR Arcade or VR Lab was designed by different people, with different models, for different purposes. When building our VR content management and licensing solution, we were sure it allowed VR Operators to quickly customize the launcher to fit their operation. If they want to change something, it’s simply a toggle switch within our Operator Panel to automatically make the change in the Launcher.

For this Feature Spotlight, we are going to focus on Ads & Announcements in the Launcher.

Benefits of Launcher Ads & Announcements

We rolled out the feature of “Launcher Ads & Announcements” in SpringboardVR 3.0. Benefits of these Ads & Announcements for customers include:

  • Promoting upcoming events
  • Educating your customers on special pricing
  • Informing your customers of special offers
  • Announcing tournaments, parties, etc.

Where to Upload Launcher Ads

In your Operator Panel choose your location then select the Experiences tab.

Next, choose which Experience you wish to upload ad images for. In the Experience Details tab, scroll down to the bottom of the page until you see the Launcher Ads section.

There are two sizes that can be uploaded for the Ads:

  1. Full size
  2. Half size

The size recommendations are as follows:

  • Full Size Ads: 400px wide by 800px tall
  • Half Size Ads: 400px wide by 380px tall

Select what size Ad you are uploading for the specific side of the launcher from the drop-down menu, click on the upload box, and select the image from your computer.

Once the images are uploaded you can click on the Preview Ads button to see how they look with the set dimensions.

Don’t forget to click ‘Save’ before leaving the page.

How the Ads Display within the Launcher

Now that your Ads have been uploaded you will be able to see them in the Launcher. Make sure you upload the ads for the correct side of the launcher you want them displayed on.
