Overlay Panel

Overlay panels appear in the centre of the TV screen over full screen video. Some overlay panels take up the whole screen.

Overlay panels are normally used when you need to prompt users to make a choice or selection in order to continue.

When an overlay panel is displayed over full screen video, the video is “knocked back” (dimmed to a lower level of transparency) to provide enough contrast for the overlay.
