How to Create and Submit a Bulletin to SCTV
Who may submit? What content is eligible?
Slides may be submitted by Town of Salisbury departments and committees or non-profit organizations in the area.
Bulletin Board slides may highlight important government information or community-wide, non-commercial events.
Slides should not include prices or costs of admission, donations, entry fees, etc., even for non-profit events.
Slides should be of specific interest to residents and viewers in the Salisbury area.
The slides should refer to specific events or services, usually with an end date, not generic items such as office hours or organizational promotion. Generally, slides will be terminated after 3 to 4 weeks.
Email (attach) qualified bulletins to email@example.com.
What is the format for SCTV bulletin board slides?
Slides should be either .jpg image files or .png image with a 16:9 landscape aspect ratio. Those are generally 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
SCTV's equipment will scale any 16:9 landscape .jpg or .png image to the correct size needed.
SCTV and most PEG access channels still actually cablecast on the channels in standard definition. Small fonts cannot be read on many TVs.
If your content and images will not fit comfortably on one 1920 x 1080 slide with large enough font, submit it in two or more slides.
Please do not just submit just text and expect SCTV to convert it to a slide.
