Introduction

Userful's Control Center lets adminstrators "map" displays and video walls via an intuitive drag-and-drop interface to "roles" or "content sources". This document provides a brief overview of Userful's Mapping functionality. For more details on a given source type, please refer to the specific source guide (see below).

Mapping Screen

To access this functionality open Control Center > Mapping.

In the example shown to the right:

  • Displays 1 (onboard display) is mapped to the default "Welcome Screen"
  • Displays 2 to 5 - configured as a video wall (Zone-1), Display 6 and 7 are playing Signage content
  • Displays 8 and 9 are mapped to Web Browser source
  • Display 10 is mapped to another Web Browser source.


Note: It allows users to toggle between the conventional view and the card view for improved user experience. The card(s) are generated based on the various welcome screen(s) available on the Mapping page.

Note: Userful strongly recommends to use onboard display only for system administrative tasks.

Configuring Sources

Creating New Source

By default, all displays including the Userful host are mapped to source group (i.e. "Welcome Screen"). User can launch any source from the available list by simply clicking the source name, if "Show Welcome Screen" is enabled, however if it is disabled then first source in the welcome screen will launch automatically.

Mapping Screen displays list of available sources and system / zero-client device information, including Display ID, MAC Address and IP Address. However, to create a new source:

  • Click on New Source button
  • Give a name, and then use the drop-down menu to select amongst the various source types available (click the link for the specific source guide):



Drag & Drop Displays

Drag and Drop Functionality

Once created, displays can be "mapped" or assigned by dragging-and-dropping the display icons to the desired source. All mapped displays will have yellow background, until changes are applied.
In other words, changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.


Tile Welcome Screen Configuration

Tile-based Welcome Screen

Tile-based Welcome Screen provides users with the fresh look to enhance the usability of the Welcome Screen.

To create Tile-based Welcome Screen:

  • Click Welcome Screen Icon.png icon available on the right corner of an existing source group
  • Click "On" to enable it
  • Enter the location of the logo file (e.g., /home/user/logo/logofile.png)
  • Enter the header text message
  • Select a color of the header text by clicking on default color option to open color picker window
  • Select a color of the header background by clicking on default color option to open color picker window
  • Select text color of all the source name(s) by clicking on default color option to open color picker window
  • Enter comma separated color values for the background color of the source(s), OR
  • Click "+" button to choose the background color of the source(s) from the color picker window
  • Repeat above step depending on the number of sources available under Welcome Screen
  • Enable Date and Time if required
  • Enable Language Selector if you need to select any foreign language for the Welcome Screen
  • Select a color of the Tile Welcome Screen background by clicking on default color option to open color picker window
  • Click "OK" to complete the process


Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.

Tile Welcome Screen

Once created, Tile Welcome screen will appear on the mapped display or video wall as shown in the image to the right.

Click on any source icon to launch the selected source on the display or video wall.


Note: Each source/plugin can have its own set of icons that can be placed in the directory path "/usr/share/userful-plugin-<plugin-name>/icons", root privileges are required throughout this procedure. Changes will not take effect until Userful server is rebooted.

The source icons can be changed by clicking on the existing icon while configuring source under Control Center > Mapping.

Mirror Group Configuration

Mirror Group feature allows users to run same content on multiple displays. Following are the key advantages:

  • Optimal CPU utilization (processing content only once when outputting identical content to multiple displays including a video wall)
  • Perfect content synchronization
  • Reduced complexity (managing a single display per group)
Mirror Group Configuration

To create "Mirror Group":

  • Click Mirror Group.png icon available on the right side of the "Welcome Screen" to open "Mirror Group Configuration" window
  • Click "On" and Enter a name of the Mirror Group
  • Select "Control Display" from the drop-down
Control display is the display designated for mirroring i.e. all the displays in the group, render the same content as per the control display
  • Click "OK" to complete the process

Once mirror group is configured, all the displays and video walls mapped to the source will play content in perfect synchronization.

Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.

Notes:
  • Mirror Group does not support audio.
  • Mirror Group cannot be created for the default "Welcome Screen"
  • In a Mirror Group, the default scaling option for all sources (except Network Streamer and Signage Player) is "Zoom Full-Screen".


Save Preset

Save Preset feature allows users to create and save a variety of preset settings (i.e display mapping configuration) and launch those settings using a single click. To create various presets:

Save Preset
  • Open Mapping tab and configure the settings of displays and video walls as per requirement.
  • Click on the arrow next to the Apply button, and then click on "Save as Preset" to open the "Save Preset" dialog window as shown in the image to the right.
  • Enter the Preset Name to save the current configuration and click "OK" to complete the process.
  • Repeat the above-mentioned steps to save a variety of preset settings


Saved Presets
  • Once completed, click on the arrow next to Apply button, and then click on # Saved (# represents the number of saved presets), to open the "Saved Presets" dialog window, to view the list of saved presets.
  • Click on the preset name or play icon to launch the selected preset settings on the associated displays and video walls.
  • You can also click on the trash icon to delete the saved preset.


Display Settings

Display Settings

Control Center > Mapping provides an easy access to individual display settings.

To edit or access display settings, single-click an assigned display to open Display Settings dialog box as shown in the image to the right.

  • Change Display ID, also view information including Location, IP Address, MAC Address, Connected Devices etc.
  • Set the display's resolution by choosing the options available under Resolution drop-down.
The user can also customize the display's resolution by selecting "Custom Resolution" option.
  • Rotate individual display by selecting option available under Rotation drop-down.
  • Color calibrate individual displays to adjust it's color characteristics (i.e., RGB color scheme, Brightness, and Contrast). This effectively implies adjusting the color tolerance and intensity of displays to enhance the visual illusion.
For calibrating colors enter the values or use the mouse wheel to select values for the respective color scheme, brightness, or contrast.
Click Reset Color Calibration to reset color scheme to default values.
  • Stop the current session by clicking the Stop button.
  • Start a new session by selecting an available source from the drop-down.


Edit the desired settings and click OK to complete the process.

Note: Please configure the display's resolution under Mapping > Display Settings if the content of the standalone display or video wall is not playing at expected resolution. In case of video wall; re-calibrate the video wall after changing the resolution.

Display Status

Besides different roles, Mapping page also provides the status of each and every display, as described below:

Online Display Icon.png Online Display
  • Assigned displays have blue display icon with display ID.
Unmapped Display Icon.png Unmapped Display
  • Assigned displays that are not mapped to any source have black display icon with display ID.
Unassigned Display Icon.png Unassigned Display
  • Unassigned displays (status offline) have blue display icon with a cross button for an option to remove them.


Renumbering Displays

Mapping also allows users to easily renumber the displays, as described below:

  • Click on the "Show IDs" button; spin box Renumber Display.png will overlap the existing display icon that can be edited.
  • Renumber or reorder all the displays connected.
  • Click again on the "Show IDs" button to confirm the display numbers.
