We are a marketing material and content production company and primarily use the in-built production clock in vMix, but the timer and ease of access on Stagetimer is a lot better for our presenters.

Frequently asked questions

Can I use Stagetimer with any device?

Stagetimer can be used with any internet-connected device and does not require download. However, it works best with up-to-date devices and browsers. Old devices may have issues loading the webpage. Check our recommended system requirements to learn more.

Can I schedule a timer to start automatically?

Yes, you can always start a timer at a specific time and date. To do so, click the gear icon on the individual timer, select the “Scheduled” trigger, select a time, and optionally a date. When left empty, the date will be automatically defined as the same day or the next day if that time is already passed.

Can I upload my own agenda or rundown?

You don’t have to enter all the information manually to create timers if you already have an agenda or rundown of your event, meeting, or presentation. Upload the CSV file by clicking on “Menu” → ”CSV Import”.

Is there a count-up option?

There are several options for timer appearance, including count-up. To select this option, click on the dropdown menu below the duration on the individual timer and select “Count Up”.

Can I share the event agenda with others?

Yes. Every room comes ready with a shareable agenda link for collaborators, staff, or attendees to access anytime. You can also send collaborative links to team members and delegate administrative tasks during the Livestream.

Can I use sounds to alert when it’s wrap-up time?

You can select a chime to sound at the wrap-up time for each timer. There’s even the option to use different chimes at three different moments during the wrap-up time so speakers are reminded that the time is almost up.

Is it possible to only show the clock (time of day)?

Yes, you can display only the clock (time of day). Click on the dropdown menu below the duration of a timer. You can then select different timer appearances, including time of day or a combination of ToD and a countdown or count-up timer.

Can I use an API to control Stagetimer?

Yes, you can find all the endpoints and commands in the API Documentation. This allows you to use Stagetimer with StreamDeck and Companion, scripts, and macros. There is a Companion plugin available. Just search for “Lukas Hermann Stagetimer”.
