Auction Tube

Auction Tube is one of the most engaging features of Wavebid when it comes to live auctions. This featured tool allows users to display the Lots currently being clerked on a projector or big-screen display, allowing buyers to see additional information and photos of the Lot(s) being auctioned at the current time. This, in turn, enables auctioneer's to sometimes obtain higher prices for Lots by better showing them off. This article describes the process for setting up Auction Tube.

Setup

 

Setup                                                                                             

  1. Navigate to the applicable auction from the Dashboard, then select Accounting > Clerk this Auction.

  2. Right-click on the Auction Tube tab and select the Open Link in New Tab option. AuctionTube.PNG
  3. Confirm that the Screen/Ring matches on both the Clerk tab and the Auction Tube tab. The Screen/Ring that is selected DOES matter, as it determines what will actually show up on the Auction Tube page.  AuctionTubeRing1.PNG                                                                                                                                                                  AuctionTubeRing2.PNG
  4. In the Clerk tab, click the Start Auction Tube button to start the stream. AuctionTubeStart.PNG
  5. In Auction Tube tab, select either a Light (white) or Dark (black) background from the Select a Style drop-down.AuctionTubeBackground.PNG

  6. To view the stream, click the Ride the Wave button on the Auction Tube tab. This will open the stream in the same browser tab currently being used. To open the stream on a different tab or browser window, use the Direct URL shown at the bottom of the page. AuctionTubeRideWave.PNG

Auction Tube will automatically start a slideshow presentation of whatever Lots in the selected ring are being pulled up on the Clerk tab.

For single Lots, the system will rotate between all the photos for that particular Lot.

For multiple lots, the system will rotate between the lead photo for each single lot and display the sale type.

Auction Tube is automatically disabled everyday at midnight in the event that a user forgets to disconnect their stream.
