Custom Carousel Fonts

Applies to

  • All Carousel Versions

Answer

If you have a specific need for a certain font on your Carousel Channels, you can add your own custom fonts. Custom fonts need to be TrueType Font (*.TTF file).

To install a custom font to Carousel, you need to access your Carousel server (The actual physical server, not the Carousel Web UI), and install the font like you would on any windows system (More about that here).

Once the font is installed, you can now select the font in the Carousel web UI and the Carousel server will render bulletins using that new font.

If a bulletin that renders in real-time on a player & uses a custom font (such as the clock bulletin), you'll need to install that custom font on each player that displays that bulletin type. Custom fonts for real time bulletins can only be installed on Carousel for Windows players. We don't support custom fonts on Brightsign or AppleTV players at this time.
