Copyright © 2016 . All rights reserved.
Selecting "Signage Player" as the role type allows administrators to launch media files (videos) on a continuous loop using the built in signage player. Media files are added using the "Add File" or "Add Dir" button. A variety of sample content is provided for selection under
/content/media/ directory. In order to add new content to the playlist, media files can either be copied into
/content/media directory or user can define a local directory as an implicit playlist.
Station Mapping: Creating a Signage Player Session Container
Station Mapping allows you to bind a specific station to Signage Player. To create "Signage Player" Session Container:
- Click on "New Session Container". Use the drop-down menu to select "Signage Player" as the session container type and give a name for the new session
- Choose a media file by clicking "Add File" button or specify the playlist directory by clicking "Add Dir" button
- All media files should be saved in /content/media folder; in order to appear in this list.
- To add a playlist directory, click "Add Dir" button; specify the playlist name and the complete path of the existing media files directory.
Map Stations to Session Container
Once session container is created, video wall can be "mapped" or assigned to the session by simply dragging-and-dropping the video wall to the desired session container.
To change the session container configuration (for example, to edit playlist), click on the session name to open the "Edit Session Container" window.
Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
