Bingo ビ ン ゴ is a simple application for raffling bingo numbers and display on a large TV, projector or LED screen so that participants can follow the draw.
It is suitable for small events that use the ready-made cards bought at stationery stores. This application neither generates nor controls the situation of the cards sold.
To take advantage of the large-screen display, there is a space reserved for the supporters of the event. The sponsors' logo is rolling during the draw without disturbing the numbers display.
** Connect your device to the big screen **
To connect your smartphone / tablet to a TV, projector or LED screen, it depends a lot on what features it has. Basically you need some technology that allows you to mirror the screen of the device on the big screen. Refer to your device's manual for details. The most common options are:
a) HDMI - Uses the simplest and most direct cable, however there are few devices with this output.
b) USB - The USB port can serve as a video output using a special cable to mirror the screen.
c) Chromecast - This device allows you to connect wirelessly to your device and thus display the screen. There are generic alternatives that also work well.
d) Smart TV - Some TVs already have a native way of mirroring your smartphone screen. It is necessary that the TV and the device have this technology available.
e) Projector with Android - If the projector already has the same system of your device there is a great possibility of mirroring the screen.
f) Notebook / PC - If it is not possible to mirror the device screen, one option would be to use the notebook / PC with Android emulator to run the application.
** Draw **
At the time of the draw the operations are quite simple. Just press the draw button so the number is highlighted.
In the general table are marked the balls already drawn.
Just below the table are the messages and supporters of the event. This part runs automatically.
The balls drawn in order are displayed in the frame of the baseboard. The last ball drawn is highlighted. You can slide with your finger to see the oldest balls.
** Settings **
You can configure all the information displayed on the draw screen.
From the word associated with the number, title, message, scrolling speed etc.
** Sponsors **
The sponsors' display is optional but we recommend disclosing the entities that support the event. The recommended format is a rectangular area in the ratio 16: 9.
The image can be selected in the device's album or take a photo in time.
