Learn about stage assets, and how they can be configured to display across your apps.*
Assets are your catalog of video and non-video content. Each asset contains metadata (including images), offers, and an internal reference to a video file if applicable.
AXIS supports multiple asset types that display in rows in the Reference Apps. How they display will depend on the available metadata, the selected row type and how it's configured, and the user’s app.
What are Stage assets?
Stages are a sport-specific asset. They can be related to competition assets - for example, the semi-final or final stage of the competition - and to one or more event assets. In Presentation Manager, the icon is used to represent stage assets.
Use metadata to display information about the stage across your apps. Key fields will include:
- the title of the stage asset, e.g., quarter-final
- the sport it relates to
- a detailed or short description of the stage
- the sequence number, informing the order in which the stages are presented
AXIS supports several additional fields for stage assets. To find out more, see our asset metadata article.
Stages in rows
1. Display stage details on an event
When a stage asset is related to an event asset, you can surface relevant information about your event stages in the app. This also applies to displaying competition information, if you have related an event asset to a competition asset.
To learn more about how this works, see our article on asset relations.
The STV3 row below shows how stage information is surfaced on the event asset tile – visible here under the event short description. (This example also shows round on the tile, which is taken from the event metadata field of the same name.)
Note: The display of stage, round, and competition metadata is not supported OOTB on native mobile apps.
2. Use the ST3 row stage selector
As well as being able to display the stage on the event tile, you can also enable the stage selector option on the ST3 Events grid row. This lets users filter events based on the competition stage, using the drop-down selector on the top left-hand side.
Important: To activate this feature, you’ll need to make sure that the Display Stage Selector toggle on the row is configured to be on in Presentation Manager.
Selecting an event takes users to the event detail page for more information. Depending on user entitlements and the event status, they can also initiate playback and watch the event.
To see more about how the stage selector works across the different Reference Apps, have a look at our sports rows article.
