Station Mapping: Creating a Network Streamer Session Container

Creating Network Streamer session container

Station Mapping allows you to bind a specific display(s) to Network Streamer. To create this session container:

  1. Click on Station Mapping > New Session Container. From the drop-down menu select "Network Streamer" as preferred session container type and give it a name.
  2. Select protocol from the drop-down list (i.e. rtps or http).
  3. Provide the media URL you want to stream ( e.g. use only server_name/file_path instead of the complete URL rtps://server_name/file_path).
  4. Set the Buffer rate.
  5. Provide user credentials that have access to the file.
  6. Select the Scaling option (default: Zoom full-screen).
  7. Click "OK" to complete the process.

Note: To get the correct URL of your stream, please consult your vendor's manual.

Map Displays to Network Streamer

Mapping displays to Network Streamer session container

Once session container is created, displays or video wall can be "mapped" or assigned by simply dragging-and-dropping the display or video wall icons to the Network Streamer session container.

To change the existing session container configuration (for example, to change protocol or stream content), click on the session name to open the "Edit Session Container" window and make the changes.

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