MKTG’s IPTV system manages the content on the hundreds of TV screens at the MCG and Marvel Stadium. These screens are used for advertising as well as menus, way-finding and house-keeping.
There are 4 different content layouts that are used to cover all the screen sizes and uses.
Make sure to read the specs carefully as well as follow the best practice guidelines at the bottom of this page.
If you require assistance understanding these specs or need help creating content, MKTG Studio is here to help.
We recommend bookmarking this website and joining our MKTG specs mailing list to make sure you always have the latest information.
Click an image to get a better look at the layout requirements.
Render all graphics at the full 1920×1080 resolution. You must create all four formats to display properly.
Title safe: 60px around the edges of the screen.
Overhang: 50px. You may overhang a small amount of content on the L-Wrap, Strap and Side graphic.
These graphics can be images or short looping videos. Images should be .png files with alpha, video files should be .mp4s with the empty areas left black. IPTV video files are keyed out using a Luma key.
This means that anything that is perfect black will be keyed out, and the screens’ regular content displayed in the blank spaces. This means you can not use perfect black in your video designs or must dilute any blacks so they do not key out.
Do not fade to black at the start or end of your animation.
An After Effects template for checking the Luma key available here.
