11 3 Using the Asset Manager Application Any media or content imported into the AvediaServer is known as an asset. Assets can be offered as Video on Demand (VoD) content and are the building blocks of the Play application. Assets are enabled for VoD in the VOD application. The Play application allows creation of customised multicast channels using the available assets. Each asset has various attributes associated with it. These help you organise and maintain the assets and provide customers with the correct information regarding each asset. Figure 1 Asset Manager Assets page All content is listed in the table on the Assets page of the Asset Manager application. The Genres, Groups and Tariffs pages allow you specify attributes to be associated with each piece of content, allowing you to filter content and provide charging information for a PMS. The Configuration page allows you to specify content aging. Used in conjunction with asset properties specified using the asset edit function, you can enable automatic content deletion at the end of the aging period. You can also use the Asset Manager application to import content from CD/DVD/USB/FTP sources and make any completed AvediaServer recordings available for VoD. Recordings created on the AvediaServer Recorder application can also be made available for VoD. Asset information such as a description, an associated image and encryption status can be viewed and edited as required. You can also download an asset to your local computer. Playlists can be created using available assets and subsequently managed as an asset. Administrator s Guide 11

12 Genres, Groups, Tariffs, and Configuration The Genres, Groups and Tariffs pages allow you specify attributes to be associated with each piece of content. Genres are used to categorise Assets and Channels for example, into Entertainment, News or Sport categories. Genres can help users locate content when using the portal client interface or AvediaPlayer desktop. Assets and Playlists can be categorised into one or more genres. Groups are used to filter assets to ensure that only the audience that you want to view the asset, channel, or playlist can view it. Assets, channels, and playlists can be associated with more than one Group. The Group all overrides all other Groups settings and enables all content to be viewed. Tariffs allow you to assign a pricing value to a particular asset if that asset or playlist is enabled for VoD. Tariffs are optional and are only relevant to a PMS-enabled AvediaServer Portal. Creating, Editing, and Removing Genres To create a genre: 1. Start the Asset Manager application. 2. Click the Genres tab to view the current list of genres: 3.

15 Creating and Removing Tariffs When AvediaServer is used with a PMS, you have the ability to charge customers for viewing VoD assets. The tariff is the charge presented to the customer and sent to the PMS when the customer views the asset. Each tariff is defined in the Asset Manager application and can be assigned to as many assets or playlists as required. The name assigned to the tariff is for ease of use and is not displayed on the client interface. The value is the charge levied on the PMS and should be stated in a format that the PMS understands. If you do not have PMS capability, the tariff has no effect. Editing Asset Details on page 24 shows you how to assign a tariff to an asset. To create a tariff: 1. Start the Asset Manager application. 2. Click the Tariffs tab to view the current list: 3. Click New and enter the name you want to use in the Name field. 4. Enter the required charge code that is recognised by the PMS in the Charge field. 5. Click the Save button to complete the process and add the new tariff to the list. To remove a tariff: 1. Start the Asset Manager application. 2. Click the Tariffs tab to view the current list. 3. Select the tariff to be removed and click Delete: Administrator s Guide 15

16 4. Click the OK button to delete the selected tariff. Asset Manager Assets Page Layout and Functions This section describes the highlighted areas of the Asset Manager application Assets page. 1. Assets and Search The Assets table and search function allows you to manage the assets in the list and search within the table contents. Search: Entry field orders the table by best match to text and numbers within any entry listed the table. The list is interactively updated as you enter data into the search field. Headings: You can order the table by clicking on the name of any column heading. Clicking on a column heading again to reverse the order. The order is indicated by the up/down arrows ( or ). 2. Asset Attributes. Name Displays the name of the asset. Type Displays the content type, an Asset, Playlist, or a Recording. Status Indicates the recording/transfer status of the content. Duration When an asset is added, the AvediaServer determines the duration of the asset. This is essential when scheduling the asset in the Play application. Genre Is used to categorise assets to help users find the content they want when using the AvediaPlayer Desktop or Portal. 16 Administrator s Guide

17 Group A mechanism used by Exterity products to filter the channels and content available to view on an Exterity receiver or software client. Assets can be associated with more than one Group. Transfer Indicates the status of a recording transfer to the local or a remote AvediaServer. Owner Indicates the owner of the asset and the view/move permissions based around the profile of the owner. Access Displays the read/write permissions for each asset for the logged on user. 3. Page Control The paging step buttons allow you to page through longer lists of assets. You can also choose to display a greater or lesser number of assets on a single page by selecting a value from the Show drop down list. The default number per page is 10. Navigate through the pages by clicking the step forward/back single arrows. The lower line displays the range of assets from the total currently displayed. If you have filtered the results by entering text in the search field, the lower line displays the range of results from the total number of channels. Administrator s Guide 17

18 Importing Content Before assets can be made available from the AvediaServer the content must first be imported. Local recordings can be converted to assets. This is achieved by configuring automatic transfer on completion in the Recorder application, with the local AvediaServer as the specified destination, or subsequently after completion using the Transfer application. Recordings made on a remote AvediaServer become assets when they are transferred to the local AvediaServer, again using the Transfer application. Assets can be imported in one of three ways: FTP DVD/CD ROM USB memory stick Note: Unauthorised use and/or duplication of copyrighted material may be a violation of copyright law in one or many countries/regions. Only import material over which you own the copyright or have been authorised by the copyright owner to copy and use. To import assets: 1. If using DVD/CD ROM or USB memory stick, insert the media into the correct slot on the AvediaServer chassis. Note: DVDs, CDs, or USB devices may require a few seconds to be recognised by the AvediaServer. If the media is not listed in the Method drop-down click the Import Asset to refresh the page and repeat until the media is listed. 2. Start the Asset Manager application. 3. Click the Assets tab and click Import Asset. 4. Click the Method drop down list and select FTP, FTP (Passive), DVD, CD, or USB device. 5. If using FTP, the following additional steps are required. 18 Administrator s Guide

19 a. Enter the IP address of the FTP server on which the asset resides in the FTP server field. b. Enter your username in the Username field. c. Enter your password in the Password field. d. Enter the file path in the Filename field or use the Browse button to find the file on the FTP server/device. This Filename is required for all imports. e. Enter the image path in the Image field or use the Browse button to find the image on the FTP server/device. This field is optional. 6. Enter a name in the Name field. This field is required. 7. Enter a description for the asset in the Description field. This field is optional. 8. Enter a Vendor Media ID value (user defined). This field is a unique ID to refer to the asset as defined by you. It is optional, and is displayed when a report is requested. 9. Using the Normalise drop-down menu, select Yes(Scheduled Play/VoD) or No(VoD only).this field is required and defaults to Yes(Scheduled Play/VoD). Normalising is a process applied to an imported asset to minimize the risk of playback glitches. Information for items such as different language audio tracks and subtitle availability forms part of the MPEG-2 transport stream and can change during a program causing possible disruption to playback devices. The information is contained in Packet Identifiers (PIDs). The normalisation process fixes the location of this information in specific PIDs. 10. If the asset is encrypted, choose the Asset is Encrypted option from the Encryption drop-down menu, otherwise select None. This field is required and defaults to None. Note: Encryption refers to the original format of the file. 11. If the asset is encrypted, enter the key ID into the Encryption Key ID field. This field is required for an encrypted asset. Encrypted assets required an identifier which defines the asset in the encryption system. These are defined by the SecureMedia encryption engine at the time of encoding and can be obtained from the SecureMedia key management console. 12. Once you have completed all the above fields, click the Import button. Note: Importing an asset is a two step process; once the AvediaServer has finished downloading the file from the FTP server, it processes the file in order to ensure the file is suitable for both scheduled play and VoD. This processing requires around 10% of the normal play duration of the file. Administrator s Guide 19

20 Creating Playlists The AvediaServer Asset Manager application provides you with the ability to join one or more assets together to create a playlist with a fixed order of playback. Just like discrete assets, playlists can be made available for VoD playback using the VoD application, or scheduled on a custom channel using the Play application. Once created, a playlist is listed in the Assets page and can be managed like any other asset. Note: To ensure smoother transitions in playback of assets in Playlists or AvediaServer Play channels, ensure that the video in each asset has the same codec, frame size and frame rate. The audio in each asset must have the same codec, sample rate and channel configuration (i.e. mono/stereo/surround). Note: You can create a playlist using assets that allow you read-only access. To create a playlist: 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Ensure the content you want to include in the playlist is listed as assets in the Type column. 3. Click Create Playlist: 4. Enter a name and description for the playlist in the respective fields. 20 Administrator s Guide

21 5. Click on an asset to be added from the Available assets list. 6. Click the button to add this asset to the In playlist list. 7. Repeat this until all the required assets are added to the playlist. Each additional asset is added to the end of the playlist. 8. To remove an asset from the playlist, select the asset from In playlist and click the button. 9. To change the play order select the asset you wish to reorder in the playlist and click the button to move it up in the playlist or to move the asset down in the playlist. Administrator s Guide 21

22 Note: The total duration of all assets in the new playlist is displayed in the Duration field. 10. Click the Apply button. The new playlist is created and displayed on the Assets page. Configure the Playlist attributes such as genres, groups, and aging as described in Managing Assets on page Administrator s Guide

23 Specifying Content Aging You can specify the length of time assets remain on the AvediaServer and enable/disable automatic removal. The default is 30 days with automatic deletion disabled. The aging policy is applied to all assets unless a specific asset is protected by setting Permanent to Yes (refer to Editing Asset Details on page 24). The Content Aging Service must also be running, refer to the Using the System Application section in the Managing the AvediaServer - Administrator s Guide for more information about Services. To specify content aging: 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Configuration tab: 2. Click Edit: 3. Enter a value for the age (in days) assets must reach before being automatically deleted in the Remove after field. 4. Enable automatic deletion by clicking the Age out by default Yes button. 5. Click the Save button. 6. The revised settings are displayed on the Configuration page, and if enabled, applied to all assets unless an asset has been protected by setting Permanent to Yes. Administrator s Guide 23

24 Editing Asset Details The information held for an asset can be edited at any time by accessing the asset details from its listing on the Assets page. You must be either the asset owner or have write access to edit the details. To edit asset information: 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click on the asset you want to modify and click Edit: 3. You can edit any of the following parameters: a.

Statistics Code You can enter an arbitrary value to help monitor usage. The code is included in the statistics , configured in and sent from the Portal Config application. d. Vendor Media ID A unique ID to refer to the asset as defined by you. This is generally used by Hospitality customers who want to track the same asset in multiple locations. Edit as required. e. Tariff Select from the drop down list as required tariffs are configured on the Tariffs. This feature must be used in conjunction with a compatible PMS. f. Permanent If you press No, the content aging specified on the Configuration page is applied. If Yes is selected the asset is retained until manually deleted. g. Permissions Specify the owner of the asset and the capabilities of users with the same profile as the asset owner, and those with different profiles. 24 Administrator s Guide

25 4. Click the Save button to apply any changes. Managing Assets This section shows you how to download assets to your local computer and how to delete them from the AvediaServer. It also shows you how to categorise assets to ensure correct listing in client interfaces and a PMS. Genre, Groups, and Tariffs must first be configured as shown in Genres, Groups, and Tariffs on page 12. You can also assign an image as a thumbnail and download or delete the asset. Downloading an Asset You can download an asset from the AvediaServer to your local computer. To download an asset: 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click the asset you want to download. (You can only download one asset at a time.) 3. Click Download and monitor your default browser download folder for the selected asset. Removing Assets Removing an asset completely removes it from the AvediaServer. Be sure you want to remove an asset before following the procedure below. You may remove unused assets, assets that have been scheduled in the past (past assets) and currently playing assets. To remove an asset 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click the asset you want to remove. You can select more than one asset at a time if required. 3. Click Delete: 4. Click the OK button to delete the selected asset. The asset is removed from the list immediately. Note: Assets that are in use or are scheduled for future use by the Play application cannot be removed without first clearing the schedule, Administrator s Guide 25

26 Adding Assets to Genres Adding an asset to a genre helps organise content within the IPTV network. Assigning content into categories (genres) such as sport, entertainment, and news also helps the end user quickly find content of interest. To add an asset to a genre: 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click the asset you want to configure. You can select more than one asset at a time if required. 3. Click Genres: 4. Locate and click the required genre from the Add list. You can add an asset to more than one genre if required by repeating this process. 5. Click the asset(s) again to deselect. To change or delete assets from genre(s) 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click the asset you want to configure. You can select more than one asset at a time if required. 3. Click Genres: 26 Administrator s Guide

27 4. Locate and click the required genre from the Add list to add the asset to another genre. To remove an asset from a genre, click the genre in the Remove list. 5. Click the asset(s) again to deselect. Note: You can create and add the asset to a new genre using the Create new genre entry field. Enter the name of new genre and click the button. The new genre is also listed in the Genres tab. Adding Assets to Groups Groups provide an additional level of content filtering. VoD assets and live or scheduled channels can be considered as content. Content can be placed in one or more groups. Receivers can also be a member of one or more groups. When a receiver is a member of the same group or groups as an item of content, the content is listed and playback of the content is allowed when selected by the end user. If a receiver is not a member of a specific group, any content in that group is not listed and therefore not available to be viewed. This provides receiver by receiver control of content available and in a hospitality context, meets the need of restricting content when required. A similar process is applied to AvediaPlayer Desktop clients. Each user, or user group, is associated with a profile. The profile specifies the Groups membership. Profiles are specified in the Users application for more information refer to the Managing the AvediaServer - Administrator s Guide. Assets can be listed in more than one group, however the default group all overrides any other setting, and makes the content available to any receivers and AvediaPlayer Desktop users not assigned to a specified group. To add an asset to a group 1. Start the Asset Manager application and click the Assets tab. 2. Click the asset you want to configure. You can select more than one asset at a time if required. 3. Click Groups: Administrator s Guide 27

33 5 Using the Recorder Application The AvediaServer Recorder application allows you to create scheduled or continuous recordings of any channel content available on the IPTV system. You can also configure how the recording is managed on completion including transfer to other AvediaServers. All scheduled and completed continuous recordings are listed on the Assets page of the Asset Manager application. You can use the Transfer application to make a completed recording available as an asset for the Video on Demand or Play applications by transferring a completed recording, either on completion (prior configuration) or at a later time, to the local or a remote AvediaServer. Figure 3 Recorder Application Recordings Page An in-progress recording is indicated by a vertical green bar on the left of the recording listing as shown in Figure 4.33 Figure 4 Recorder Application In-progress Recording Listing Administrator s Guide 33

34 Recording Overview There are important differences between the two recording methods and their management. Scheduled Recordings Scheduled recordings are configured by specifying the channel, date, and time. Whilst it is important to correctly configure the channel selection and timing, you should also give consideration to where the recording is to be stored and how it will be accessed. You can specify how the recording is to be managed during the configuration process or subsequently use the Transfer application to convert recordings to assets and move them to the required location. You can configure a scheduled recording to perform the following actions when the recording is complete: Remain in the recordings list and be available to download to your local computer. Remain in the recordings list and be shared, therefore available for download by other users in the same profile. Be listed as an asset in the local AvediaServer Play application. Transfer to one or more specified AvediaServer(s). Transfer to an FTP destination. Transfer to a share destination. Be listed as a VoD asset in the specified local, a remote AvediaServer destination, or a combination of the above. Some actions can be combined, such as multiple transfer destinations. Continuous Recordings Continuous recordings are configured by specifying the channel and the duration of the recording. The continuous recording process allows you to continuously record a channel and retain the content for a specified period of time in what can be thought of as a sliding window, the size of the recording is never greater than the specified duration. The recording commences on completion of the configuration process and is continually updated. The recording is listed on the Recordings page, even when stopped, and remains available for download/viewing/transfer until it is removed. Figure 5 Continuous Recording Window 34 Administrator s Guide

35 Figure 5 shows the sliding window concept used for continuous recording. In this example, a continuous recording of 60 minutes duration has been configured. The recording commences as soon as you have completed the configuration process. If the recording started at exactly 10:00 a.m.: 10:00 - The recording has just started so the Record application has yet to write to disk. No recording stored. 10:30 - The recording has been running for half an hour and the Record application has written 30 minutes of stream data to disk.10:00 10:30 stored. 11:00 - The recording has been running for an hour and the Record application has written 60 minutes of stream data to disk. 10:00 11:00 stored. 11:30 - The recording has been running for 90 minutes. Although the Record application has written 90 minutes of data to disk since it started, only the most recent 60 minute period is saved and available to view or download. The first 30 minutes of the recording have been deleted. 10:30 11:30 stored. 12:00: The recording has been running for two hours. Although Record has written 120 minutes of stream data to disk, again only the most recent 60 minute period is available to view or download. The Record application has deleted the first hour of the recording. 11:00 12:00 stored. In this example, you can download or view the most recent 60 minutes of recording at any time. The window continues to slide until the recording or the Record service is stopped, retaining the most recent 60 minutes of the channel. Recording Parameters When a recording is configured, the Recorder application reserves disk space for the exclusive use of that recording. The amount of disk space reserved depends on the format, hence bit rate of the recording, and its duration. Requirements for in-progress and scheduled recordings are taken into account when capacity is evaluated for new recordings. Recordings are also constrained by the assigned disk space. If exceeded, the recording continues but earlier content is lost. Parameters The Recorder application uses a fixed set of bitrates for each of the three stream types available as shown in Table 2. Table 2 Formats and Corresponding Bitrates. Format Bitrate Mbps (bits per second) Audio 1 ( ) SD 6 ( ) HD 20 ( ) In order to prevent any recordings completely filling the disk, recordings can only reserve 95% of the available disk space. This ensures system stability and completion of recordings if one or more recordings grossly exceed assigned bitrates. Administrator s Guide 35

36 Creating Recordings This section describes the processes of creating continuous or scheduled recordings. The Recorder application actively monitors the available disk space. You are alerted if there is insufficient disk space for a new recording to be created. The recording is listed, but its status is shown as and the recording is not executed. Whilst there are differences between continuous and scheduled recordings, each user owns their configured recordings. Only the recording owner, or users assigned to the admin profile, can stop or remove a recording. If shared, recordings can be downloaded or viewed by any user assigned to the same profile as the recording owner. For example, if a recording is owned by user A who is a member of 3 profiles, user B only need to be a member of one of A s profiles to access A s recordings. Figure 6 Recorder Application - Scheduled Recordings Page Prior to creating a recording you should ensure the Record and Channel Listener services are running (configured on the System application Services page). You can create recordings without configuring transfer destinations, but if you plan to transfer a scheduled recording to another location on completion you should also ensure that you have configured any required destinations as described in Configuring Transfer Destinations on page 53. Simultaneous recordings can be configured up to the bandwidth limits of the AvediaServer. In this section: Creating a Scheduled Recording Creating a Continuous Recording Creating a Recording with an XMLTV File 36 Administrator s Guide

37 Creating a Scheduled Recording Creating a scheduled recording with the AvediaServer Record application is a similar process to that used by most consumer recorders.

Administrator s Guide 63

64 7 Using the Play Application You can construct channels from assets or playlists, arranging the content in the order required, and multicast these onto the IPTV network. The number of channels is limited only by the combined simultaneous bandwidth requirement of the assets in the channels being played. Each of these channels constructed on the Scheduled Play page has a schedule associated with it. Configuring the channel specifies the parameters required for its successful operation as a multicast stream within the IPTV network. To enable the Play application channels to be listed, the EPG Generator page allows you to specify the IP address of the AvediaServer running the EPG Server application. Note: the AvediaServer EPG Generator service must be running to enable creation of EIT tables for the EPG Server application. Services are configured in the System application. Figure 11 AvediaServer Play Application Scheduled Play Page Note: To ensure smoother transitions in playback of assets in Playlists or AvediaServer Play channels, ensure that the video in each asset has the same codec, frame size and frame rate. The audio in each asset must have the same codec, sample rate and channel configuration (i.e. mono/stereo/surround). 64 Administrator s Guide

65 Channel Attributes For each new channel created on the Scheduled Play page, the following attributes are configured: Name Number Address Port Original Network ID Transport Stream ID Service ID Groups Bandwidth Name used by all interfaces to refer to this channel and announced on the network. Default: New Channel Channel number used in SAP announcements for this channel. This can be configured to any number between 0 and 999. Default: 1 Multicast address for the channel stream. Default: UDP port of the multicast channel stream. Default: 5000 Creates unique channel identifier when combined with transport stream ID and service ID. This is used by the EPG Generator to uniquely identify the channel. Value Default: 1 Creates unique channel identifier when combined with original network ID and service ID. This is used by the EPG Generator to uniquely identify the channel. Value Default: 1 Creates unique channel identifier when combined with original network ID and transport stream ID. This is used by the EPG Generator to uniquely identify the channel. Value Default: 1 Groups associated with this channel. Groups are used to filter channels when used to ensure that only the audience that you want to view the channel can view it. A channel can be associated with one or more groups. Default: all If Reserve selected, exclusive bandwidth is provided for the channel based on the maximum bit rate of the scheduled assets. If not, the channel is played on a best effort basis. Default: Reserve Required Required Required Required Required Required Required Required Optional Administrator s Guide 65

66 Creating and Managing Channels A channel must be enabled in order to stream. If a channel is not enabled, or is disabled during playback, all content on that channel is stopped. When enabled, and the Channel Announcer service is running (refer to the System application Services page), the channel is automatically added to the Channel Announcer application for announcement on the network, allowing detection by all SAP enabled IPTV clients on the same network (all Exterity clients detect these SAP announcements automatically). The channel is listed and available to clients where the group settings allow. You can also specify a default asset for a channel which is played continuously when no other content is scheduled. When a channel is disabled, there is no associated (SAP) announcement and none of the clients on the network can list the channel. Constructing a new channel is a three step process: Specifying the channel parameters required for its successful operation as a multicast stream within the IPTV network. Adding content to the channel. Enabling and disabling the channel. Note: To ensure smoother transitions in playback of assets in Playlists or AvediaServer Play channels, ensure that the video in each asset has the same codec, frame size and frame rate. The audio in each asset must have the same codec, sample rate and channel configuration (i.e. mono/stereo/surround). Figure 12 AvediaServer Play Application Create/Edit Channel 66 Administrator s Guide

67 Specifying Channel Parameters The first step in configuring a new channel is to specify the parameters required for its successful operation as a multicast stream within the IPTV network. To specify the channel parameters: Naming the Channel The channel name is the SAP announced name for a channel over the network. The channel name is listed by any IPTV clients in the network. Use the Channel Monitor application to list the channels currently in use in the network and avoid duplication of names. 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. 2. Click New. 3. Enter the required channel name in the Name field. Setting the Channel Number You can set a channel number between 0 and 999. The channel number is listed by any IPTV clients in the network. Use the Channel Monitor application to list the channels currently in use in the network and avoid duplication of numbers. 4. Enter the required channel number in the Number field. Setting the Multicast Address and Port Number for the Channel The multicast address needs to be a valid IP multicast address and is the address on which the channel is transmitted. By default, the multicast address is and must be configured for each new channel you create. The IP port number for the multicast stream needs to be a valid UDP port number in the range The default is 5000 and can be the same for all multicast streams. Care should be taken when specifying the multicast address to make sure the multicast address assignment contains no duplicated multicast entries locally or with other multicast devices on the network, as this will result in the user being unable to view the stream. Note: Care should be taken when choosing a port number as some port numbers are assigned by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). 5. In the Address section enter the required multicast address and port in the respective fields using the channel number and server IP address as described above. Administrator s Guide 67

68 Setting the IDs of a Channel The value of the original network ID, the transport stream ID and the service ID of a channel combine to make a single ID that is used by the EPG generator to uniquely identify the channel s stream and identify the channel. For example, if two channels have exactly the same original network ID, transport stream ID and service ID, standard DVB conventions assume them to be the same channel. 6. In the Stream Identifiers section, enter values for the Original Network ID, Transport Stream ID and the Service ID. Note: The EPG generator assumes that channels with duplicated values are streaming the same content. Assigning a Channel to one or more Groups Channels must be assigned to one or multiple groups. The default group is all, which means that all clients can view this channel. Group settings allow you to gather together assets of similar types, and when used together with the groups setting on Exterity receivers, allow restriction of access to content. 7. To add the new channel to a group click on the name(s) in the Groups list. Reserve Channel Bandwidth To ensure the AvediaServer can manage the bandwidth requirements of any record and play operations you can reserve bandwidth for the channel. Bandwidth is reserved for the channel by determining the highest bitrate within the scheduled assets. Bandwidth is reserved as soon as the channel is enabled. Bandwidth remains reserved until the asset is removed from the channel. If bandwidth is not reserved, the channel is played on a best effort basis. 8. Click the Reserve or Do Not Reserve button as required. 9. Click the Save button to save the changes. Note: You can check the bandwidth reserved for the channel after a schedule has been created and the channel has been enabled by opening the System application and checking the reservation for Scheduled Play on the Bandwidth page. 68 Administrator s Guide

69 Adding Content to the Channel Now you add content to the channel. You can add any asset or playlistl. Content is listed in the available media section of the Scheduled Play page. Content is added to the new channel by dragging the required assets from the list into the channel time-line. Figure 13 AvediaServer Play Application New Channel Timeline When the Scheduled Play page is opened, the channel timeline is displayed with the solid vertical line in the timeline bar showing a 2 hour timeslot around the current AvediaServer time. Click and drag the timeline to reposition the time zone displayed, or use the calendar to select a different day. You can also specify a default asset for a channel which is played continuously when no other content is scheduled. This asset does not appear in the schedule, allowing you to easily place new content. To add content to the channel: 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. 2. Click and select a date for the channel start. 3. Click in the channel you want to construct and position the timeline to display the time where you want to begin. 4. Locate the asset you want to use in the Available media list and click and drag it onto the time line. 5. Position the asset on the time line where required. The start and stop times are displayed and continuously updated while you position the content and the length of the content is shown to scale on the timeline. 6. Release the asset when you have positioned the content as close as possible to the required start time. The asset is snapped into position. Administrator s Guide 69

70 You can fine tune the start time of the asset by zooming in. 7. Click to zoom in and display the required resolution. 8. Position the cursor over the icon to display the start time of the asset with resolution in seconds: 9. To make adjustments to the start time of the asset, click the icon to release the asset and reposition it as required. Note: You may need to use a full screen display and adjust the time resolution by clicking or to enable fine placement of the asset start time. 10. Click on the asset to release it on the timeline. 11. Click to reset the zoom and return the timeline to the default setting. 12. Continue adding assets to build up the channel content. 13. When completed, enable the channel for viewing as described in Enable or Disable a Channel on page 73. To specify default content: 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. 2. Click the required channel to select it. 3. Click Set Default. 4. Select an asset from the list and click the Save button. If the channel is enabled but no content is playing, the default asset is played until the time for the next scheduled item is reached. 70 Administrator s Guide

71 Repeating Channel Content You can configure any assets added to a channel to be repeated at specified intervals, or played continuously by looping. Note: Looping short assets over a long period is not recommended. To continuously repeat a single asset, configure it as the default asset and enable the channel. To repeat an asset: 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. 2. Locate the asset in the channel timeline. 3. To repeat an asset click on the asset in the timeline. 4. Select Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Loop from the Type drop down list. If you have selected Loop, omit step 5. Otherwise proceed as follows: 5. Specify a value for the Interval. 6. Specify an End Time. 7. Specify an End Date. 8. Click the Save button. 9. Confirm the asset has been repeated in the channel. For example, an hourly repeat: To delete an asset: 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. 2. Locate the channel you want to edit. 3. Click on the asset you want to delete. 4. For a single asset click the OK button: Administrator s Guide 71

72 For a repeated asset, click the This button to delete only the current asset, or click the All button to delete all occurrences of the asset, then click the Delete button. 5. Confirm the asset(s) has been removed. 72 Administrator s Guide

73 Enable or Disable a Channel You can enable and disable the Play channels as and when required. You can also enable and disable more than one channel simultaneously. To enable and disable a channel: 1. Start the Play application and click the Scheduled Play tab. When a channel is not enabled, it is listed as shown: 2. Select the channel(s) you want to enable. The darker shading indicates selection: 3. Click Enable. The channel is enabled as indicated by the shading pattern: 4. Confirm the channel is now listed by the Channel Monitor application: You can check the channel content by clicking on the Name or URI hyperlinks. 5. Disable a channel by selecting it and clicking Disable. Its listing changes to disabled as shown by the light shading: When disabled, the channel is no longer available on the network and is not listed by the Channel Monitor application. Administrator s Guide 73

74 Configuring the EPG Generator The EPG Generator can be configured to send EPG data to an AvediaServer EPG Server. All Scheduled Play channel information for the enabled channels is forwarded to the configured EPG server and combined with any broadcast channel information, similar to the Exterity TVgateway products, enabling the EPG Server to make programme information available for all channels in the IPTV network. The EPG Generator is configured by entering the EPG Server IP address. The EPG Generator Service must also be enabled and running on the specified AvediaServer. To configure the EPG generator: 1. Log into the web admin interface for the AvediaServer you plan to use for EPG generation, start the System application and click the Services tab. 2. Confirm the EPG Generator service is running, indicated by a. 3. If any other state is displayed, click the Start button. 4. Confirm the EPG Generator service is configured to Start on Boot by the display of the Disable button. If the Enable button is displayed, click it. 5. On the local AvediaServer start the Play application and click the EPG Generator tab. 6. Click Edit and specify the address of the destination AvediaServer. 7. Enter localhost if you want to use the local AvediaServer EPG generator, or the IP address of a remote AvediaServer, for example: (The default is localhost) 8. Click the Save button. 74 Administrator s Guide

75 8 Using the Video on Demand Application The Video on Demand (VoD) application allows you to make content available for on-demand viewing and specify the use of other AvediaServers to supply additional content or to provide additional load capacity for the same content. You can: Manage asset VoD status use the table of listed assets to make content available for on demand viewing as and when required. All other aspects of the assets, for example; the associated image, are managed by the Asset Manager application. Add content from other AvediaServers assets held on other AvediaServers on the network can be made available for on-demand viewing without moving files. Add additional load capacity provide support for high demand situations by sharing the on-demand assets across one or more nominated AvediaServers. Note that this also deletes any other assets held on the additional AvediaServers. Figure 14 Video on Demand Application VoD Assets Page Administrator s Guide 75

76 Managing Asset VoD Status You can manage the VoD status of assets, enabling or disabling them as required. To enable and disable an asset VoD status: 1. Start the Video on Demand application and click the VoD Assets tab. 2. Click on the required asset(s) to select. 3. Click Mark for VoD to enable the asset for on-demand viewing. 4. Confirm the Available as VoD column displays Yes for the selected asset: 5. To make the asset unavailable, click Remove from VoD and confirm the Available as VoD column displays No. 76 Administrator s Guide

77 Adding Content from other AvediaServers If you have VoD content on other AvediaServers on the IPTV network you can make it available to through a single Portal Client Interface, therefore you do not have to re-configure the AvediaPlayer receiver. The URI of the additional content remains unchanged and group filtering applies. All content is available, you cannot select specific assets. To make more content available: 1. Start the Video on Demand application. 2. Click the Servers tab. The Local AvediaServer is added automatically. 3. Click the Add button to display the AvediaServers in the network. 4. Click one or more AvediaServers to select them and click the Ok button. 5. Confirm the remote AvediaServer is now listed. Administrator s Guide 77

78 6. Confirm the additional VoD assets are now available on a Portal Client Interface by pressing the Home button on the remote control handset and selecting Video on Demand. To delete a remote server: 1. Start the Video on Demand application. 2. Click the Servers tab. 3. Click on the remote AvediaServer(s) to be deleted. Note: If you delete all AvediaServers, including Local, no VoD is available in the Portal Client Interface and the icon and selection button are not displayed. 4. Click the Remove button. 78 Administrator s Guide

79 Adding Additional Capacity You can add additional bandwidth capacity to meet high demand periods by adding additional AvediaServers to form a cluster. Assets are automatically copied from the master AvediaServer to the specified AvediaServer configured as a slave. The slave server(s) must have the same license, for example Play 200, as the master server, and have equal or greater disk size. When configured as a slave, all content is replaced by content from the master AvediaServer and the slave cannot be configured for any other function. The available bandwidth for VoD assets is the sum of all the individual servers in the cluster. Note that this is for VoD content (rtsp) only. Http and Play capacity is not increased. To ensure the content is made available with the increased capacity a virtual server address is created. Each AvediaPlayer receiver in the IPTV network must be configured with this virtual address for its Portal Client Interface. Content subsequently added to the master AvediaServer is automatically copied to each slave after a period of time and is not made available for VoD until all AvediaServers have been updated. You can manually synchronise the servers if required. CAUTION: Adding any remote AvediaServer to a cluster deletes all assets, playlists and channel schedules on the remote AvediaServer. Preparing to build the cluster Before starting to configure the cluster you should fully consider the requirements and: Identify the AvediaServer to be configured as the Master. Identify the AvediaServer(s) to be configured as Slave(s). Ensure the Slave AvediaServers are each configured with equal or greater capacity than the Master. Ensure all AvediaServers are configured with licenses of the same type, for example; Play200. Identify a unique IP address within the IPTV system network that can be accessed by all AvediaPlayer Receiver or desktop clients. This will be used as the virtual address of the cluster. Ensure that all content of value located on the Slave AvediaServer(s) has been saved to alternative locations as all Slave content is replaced by that held on the Master. Administrator s Guide 79

80 To add an AvediaServer to the cluster: 1. Start the Video on Demand application on the AvediaServer you intend to use as the Master. 2. Click the Cluster tab. 3. Click Edit: in the Configuration table: 4. Click the Master button and enter the IP address you want to use for the cluster in the Virtual IP field. CAUTION: Do NOT use the same IP address as the local AvediaServer. The virtual IP address must be unique within the network. 80 Administrator s Guide

81 5. The Cluster page is updated to show the Master status and displays the cluster IP address. 6. Click Add in the Cluster Members area to display the list of available AvediaServers: 7. Select the required AvediaServer(s) and click the Save button. 8. Confirm the Slave AvediaServer has been added to the Cluster Members table. Note: The Slave Sync d and Status values indicate false and OFFLINE until all the Master content has transferred to the Slave(s). 9. Start the System application, click the Bandwidth tab and note that the RTSP Bandwidth now includes the additional server(s). You can also log into the Slave web interface and confirm its Slave status and Virtual IP address in the Video on Demand application Cluster page: Continue to add more AvediaServers as slaves to the cluster as required by repeating steps 6. to 8. in the above procedure. Administrator s Guide 81

82 10. When all Slaves have been added click Sync All to ensure all content is replicated in all the Slaves. This process is periodically carried out to ensure new content added to the Master is distributed to the Slaves, but you can manually use the Sync All to ensure content is distributed quickly. Note: The content is transferred from the Master to the Slave during the synchronisation process; however no content is listed on the Slave AvediaServer Video on Demand application VoD Assets page. All content is listed and managed on the Master Updating AvediaPlayer Receivers To take advantage of the additional bandwidth available for VoD content, you must configure the AvediaPlayer receivers in the IPTV system to use the configured Cluster Virtual IP address. You can do this by logging into the web interface of each device, or by using the Director application as follows: To update AvediaPlayer receivers: 1. Start the Director application. 2. Click the Receivers tab. 3. Click the checkboxes for the devices you want to configure and select Set Homepage from the Action drop down list: 4. Click the Ok button to apply the setting. 82 Administrator s Guide

83 Dismantling the Cluster If the additional VoD capacity is no longer required you can return all the AvediaServers in the cluster to normal operation. To remove a cluster: 1. Start the Video on Demand application on the Master AvediaServer. 2. Click the Cluster tab. 3. Select the Slave AvediaServer(s) and click Remove. 4. Click the Ok button in the confirmation pop up window. 5. Confirm the Slave has been deleted from the list. Continue to remove Slaves until the list is empty. Note: When all Slaves have been removed from the list, the Master status is still intact and the Virtual IP address is still valid and operational. 6. Click Edit in the Configuration section. Administrator s Guide 83

84 7. Click the None button and highlight and delete the Virtual IP address. 8. Click the Save button. 9. Confirm Cluster lists NONE and no Virtual IP is listed. Note: The Virtual IP can no longer be used to access the Portal Client Interface. 10. Use the procedure Updating AvediaPlayer Receivers on page 82 to reconfigure the AvediaPlayer receivers in the system with a revised address for the Portal Client Interface. Typically the address of the local AvediaServer is used. Note: VoD content copied from the Master AvediaServer to Slaves when configured as a cluster remains on the Slave servers after the cluster is dismantled. The content is listed in the Video on Demand application VoD Assets page. 84 Administrator s Guide

85 9 Using the EPG Server The AvediaServer can listen for EPG information from a TVgateway or any other EPG source and make that information available on the network for EPG display on connected devices. If no EPG source is available, an imported XML file can be used to provide the information. Figure 15 EPG Server Application Summary Page The EPG schedule and programme information is displayed as shown in Figure 16 by pressing the Guide button on an AvediaPlayer remote control handset (also accessed from the Guide link in the Portal display) and the Guide tab of the AvediaPlayer Desktop. Figure 16 AvediaPlayer Receiver Displaying Portal EPG Page Administrator s Guide 85

86 Figure 17 EPG AvediaPlayer Desktop EPG Note: To view the Guide on an AvediaPlayer receiver, the AvediaServer IP address must be specified in the EPG Server address field on the Web Services page of the AvediaPlayer receiver Web Interface. Refer to the respective AvediaPlayer Guide for more information. Configuration of the EPG Server requires that these services are enabled: Channel Discovery EPG Server In addition, to include channels created in the Play application in the EPG list, and enable user recording of channels listed in the EPG, these services must also be enabled: EPG Generator Record If the default port is unsuitable, you can specify the EPG listening port so that the information sent to the EPG Server can be collated. Configuring the EPG Port Number 86 Administrator s Guide

87 Enabling the Channel Discovery Service Channels are discovered using SAP. All Exterity products can be configured to announce their channels using this protocol. The AvediaServer provides a Channel Listener service to receive the SAP announcements. The Channel Listener service is a System application function and can be monitored, started, and stopped on the Services page. The Channel Listener accepts broadcast traps ( ), multicast traps ( ) and unicast traps (AvediaServer IP addresses) on the commonly used UDP port To enable the Channel Listener service: 1. Start the System application and click the Services tab. 2. Confirm the Channel Listener is running, indicated by a. 3. If any other state is displayed, click the Start button. 4. Confirm the Channel Listener service is configured to Start on Boot by the display of the Disable button. If the Enable button is displayed, click it. Enabling the EPG Server Service The EPG Server service collates the EIT (Event Information Table) data from Exterity TVgateways sending EIT data to the AvediaServer and Play channels to make complete system channel schedule information available to the IPTV receivers and AvediaPlayer Desktop clients. To enable the EPG Server service: 1. Start the System application and click the Services tab. 2. Confirm the EPG Server is running, indicated by a. 3. If any other state is displayed, click the Start button. 4. Confirm the EPG Server service is configured to Start on Boot by the display of the Disable button. If the Enable button is displayed, click it. Enabling the EPG Generator Service The EPG Generator service creates EPG information for channels you have created in the Play application. Enable this service if you want these channels to be listed with the live broadcast channels in the EPG. To enable the EPG Generator service: 1. Start the System application and click the Services tab. 2. Confirm the EPG Generator is running, indicated by a. 3. If any other state is displayed, click the Start button. 4. Confirm the EPG Generator service is configured to Start on Boot by the display of the Disable button. If the Enable button is displayed, click it. Enabling the Record Service When the Record service is enabled, users of the AvediaPlayer Desktop client, when enabled by their assigned profile, can initiate programme recording using the links displayed in the summary of each programme in the Guide. To enable the Record service: 1. Start the System application and click the Services tab. 2. Confirm the Record is running, indicated by a. 3. If any other state is displayed, click the Start button. 4. Confirm the Record service is configured to Start on Boot by the display of the Disable button. If the Enable button is displayed, click it. Administrator s Guide 87

88 Configuring the EPG Port Number The Exterity TVGateways and the EPG Generator query the AvediaServer to obtain the port number they should use to send the EPG data. By default, the port number is UDP port and typically does not need changed unless there is a conflict with other ports in use on the network. To configure the EPG port number: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the Summary tab. 2. If required, click Edit in the EPG server configuration table. 3. Enter the new port value in the entry filed and click Save. Note: Changes to the Listening port number do not take effect until the EPG service is restarted. (System application, Services page) 4. Start the System application and click the Services tab. 5. Locate and click the EPG Server Stop button. 6. When the button changes to Start, click it to restart the EPG Server service and announce the revised port number. Note: If you change the EPG listening port number, you must also stop and restart the streamed channels from any TVgateway that is currently sending EPG data to the EPG Server. The AvediaServer Play application does not need to be restarted and uses the new port when it next sends EPG information. You must stop and re-start the EPG Server service first. To configure, stop, and restart TV gateway streams: 1. If EPG information has already been sent from one or more TVGateways, the IP addresses are listed on the Summary page, for example: 88 Administrator s Guide

89 Log into the web interface for each TVGateway you want to continue to use in the list using the displayed IP address and proceed from Step 4, or: 2. Start the Director application and filter the list to display TVGateways. 3. Click the Name hyperlink to launch the web admin interface for each required actively streaming TVGateway. 4. On the TVGateway web interface, click Stream and the stop all button to stop the channel streams and EPG data. 5. Click the start all button to re-start the channel stream with the new EPG table port value configured. To clear all schedule information: You may want to clear all schedule information from the AvediaServer if you are configuring a new source for the information. 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the Summary tab. 2. Click Clear database: 3. Click the OK button to clear all channel schedule information. Administrator s Guide 89

90 Using XML Files to Create the EPG To allow you to define programme information for channels that do not supply it, or to override channel information from a channel, the EPG Server application can upload programme information from one or more user defined files. XML format files are supported and are uploaded using FTP. Once uploaded to the EPG Server application, the information can be assigned to any channel discovered by the channel listener. Assigning a channel to XML defined programme information overrides any EPG information for that channel from any other source. Exterity supports two industry recognised XML formats: XMLTV and TV Anytime. These are defined by xmltv.org and in the ETSI specification TS 'Broadcast and On-line Services: Search, select, and rightful use of content on personal storage systems ("TV- Anytime")' Please note that: For XMLTV, the EPG Server application requires a channel element for each channel, and a start and stop time for each programme element. For TV Anytime, the EPG Server application requires a programme information table with a CRID (Content Reference Identifier) for each programme and a programme location table, giving a published start time and a published end time or published duration (or both). The files can either be defined by you as a text file following one of the above formats or the EPG data can be bought from EPG vendors. Exterity has made every effort to provide support for both formats. However, given the wide range of available XML sources, it is possible that some XMLTV or TV Anytime sources may not be supported. Note: Exterity does not accept legal responsibility for the distribution of XML TV listings from third parties. Always check that you are legally entitled to distribute the information before importing the files into the EPG Server application. This chapter contains the following sections: Importing an XML File Changing the XML Import Configuration Assigning an XML Channel to a Stream Un-assigning a Stream from an XML Channel Deleting an Inactive Channel 90 Administrator s Guide

91 Importing an XML File To import an XML file, you must place it in an accessible directory on an FTP server. The EPG Server application can be configured to regularly reload the file so that it picks up the most recent programme information, so you must ensure that the information in the file is kept up to date. To import a new XML file: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML import tab. Figure 18 EPG Server XML Import page 2. Click the Import New File button: 3. Enter the information: a. Enter the IP address of the FTP server in the FTP Server field. b. Enter the FTP Username and FTP Password of the FTP server. c. In the FTP Filename field, click on the browse button and select the required XML file. d. Enter a unique name in the Name field. By default, the Name field is filled in with the name of the XML file, excluding the file path. The XML import name is used when assigning streams to XML channel listings. e. Select the correct format for the XML import from the Format drop-down list. Administrator s Guide 91

92 f. If the file is frequently updated following programme schedule changes, tick the Auto-reload check box to have the programme information automatically updated. g. If you have selected Auto-reload, specify the frequency of updates by entering a value (in hours) in the Reload every field. h. The default file auto-reload is every 24 hours. You can auto-reload the file at intervals between 1 and 999 hours. If you deselect Auto-reload, the file is loaded once only. 4. Click the Apply button to upload the file and save your changes. The XML import page is re-displayed showing the new file. You may need to click on the Refresh button after a few seconds to allow the EPG Server application time to load and parse the file. Figure 19 EPG Server Populated XML Import page 92 Administrator s Guide

93 Changing the XML Import Configuration You can alter the XML import configuration at any time, for example, changing the auto-reload frequency of the XML import file or the IP address of the FTP server. This applies to both supported formats of XML. To change the XML import file reload frequency: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML import tab as shown in Figure Select the Reload check box if it is de-selected. 3. Enter the new reload frequency in hours in the Frequency box. 4. Click the Apply button to save your changes. The changes are effective immediately. To delete the XML import file: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML import tab as shown in Figure To remove a specific file, click Delete in the Actions column. The selected XML file is deleted immediately. Note: Any streams assigned to a deleted file are unassigned automatically. (For more information about assigning streams, refer to Assigning an XML Channel to a Stream on page 94.) To manually reload the XML import file: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML import tab as shown in Figure To immediately re-load a specific file, click Reload Now in the Actions column. The XML file is reloaded immediately. To change other XML import file settings: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML import tab as shown in Figure Click on the Name hyperlink of the file import you want to re-configure to display the respective File Import Configuration page. 3. Edit the required settings 4. Click the Apply button to save your changes. Administrator s Guide 93

94 Assigning an XML Channel to a Stream After you have imported XML files, you can assign channel information from the XML file to one or more discovered channels. When the EPG is displayed on an IPTV receiver the new imported XML data is displayed for the channel. Any channels announced by the Channel Announcer application and channels offered by the following products defined in Table 3 can be assigned to XML channels. Table 3 - XML Channel Assignment Support Device Type Module Number Software Version Supported AvediaStream TVgateway g4xxx or later AvediaStream Encoders e2xxx, e3xxx Any version AvediaServer Play m61xx or later AV Encoder all Not supported Figure 20 EPG Server XML Assignments page 94 Administrator s Guide

95 To assign an XML channel to a stream: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML assignment tab as shown in Figure For each channel which you want to assign to an XML channel, first select the XML Import Name from the drop-down list. The XML Channel drop-down list is subsequently populated with the list of channels available from that XML Import. 3. Select a channel from the drop-down list in the XML Channel column. 4. Click the Apply button to save your changes. The information for these streams is displayed on the EPG. Client browsers require a refresh to gain the updated data. Note: The EPG application uses the stream ID to identify channels. Identical channel streams from different TVgateways have identical stream IDs. If you have TVgateways streaming identical channels, the channels cannot be assigned separately, as the EPG application cannot distinguish between them. Identical channels are grouped together on the XML Assignments page. Administrator s Guide 95

96 Un-assigning a Stream from an XML Channel To un-assign a stream: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML assignment tab as shown in Figure For each stream you want to un-assign, select ---unassigned--- from the XML Import Name column drop down list. 3. Click the Apply button to save your changes. The EPG no longer displays information for the un-assigned streams. Client browsers require a refresh to gain the updated data. Deleting an Inactive Channel You can delete a channel from the list if it becomes inactive without importing a revised XML file. To delete an inactive channel: 1. Start the EPG Server application and click the XML assignment tab as shown in Figure An inactive assigned channel is listed at the top of the channels list with NO CHANNELS STREAMING displayed in the Channel column. 3. Click the Delete link in the Actions column to remove the inactive channel. 4. Click the Apply button to save your changes. 96 Administrator s Guide

97 10 Using the Secure Media Link Administrators have the option of offering the security of encrypted content only decoded on known and permitted receivers. Encryption can be applied to broadcast and on demand content, including assets forming part of AvediaServer Play application channels. Exterity uses the SecureMedia encryption scheme. When using the Portal in association with an encryption server to handle encrypted assets, the AvediaServer must be configured with the IP address of the encryption server. Likewise, the encryption server must also be configured with the IP address of the AvediaServer. The encryption system requires a duration called the VoD Authorisation period. This specifies the time available for the user to view the purchased content from the time of being authorised. The VoD Authorisation period must be specified on the Settings page of the Portal Config application. Any receivers requiring access to encrypted broadcast or on demand content must specify the IP address and port of the SecureMedia server on the Encryption page to enable registration with the SecureMedia system. The encrypted content is accessed in the same way as unencrypted content. There is no noticeable difference to the user when an asset is selected; an authenticated and authorised receiver automatically obtains the correct information to decrypt the content. To configure the SecureMedia Link: 1. Start the SecureMedia Link application. Figure 21 SecureMedia Link Page 2. Select the version of SecureMedia server from the Version drop down list. 3. Enter the IP address of the SecureMedia server in the IP Address field. 4. Click the Apply button. Note: Exterity only supports SecureMedia encryption. Administrator s Guide 97

98 To configure AvediaPlayer receivers: 1. Log into the AvediaPlayer IPTV receiver web admin interface. 2. Select the Encryption page. 3. Specify the encryption server address and port. 4. Click the Apply Changes button. 5. Confirm the receiver has been added to the list of receivers on the SecureMedia Link application page. 98 Administrator s Guide

99 Configuring Registration and Broadcast Authorisation The Viewing Rights page enables you to further control the availability of encrypted content on AvediaPlayer receivers. The SecureMedia Link page is populated by receivers when both the AvediaServer and the receivers are configured with the same SecureMedia server address. You can disable registration for specific devices, rendering then unable to decrypt any encrypted media. You can also modify the Broadcast Authorisation setting, selecting from the settings available, or none. Figure 22 Secure Media Link Broadcast Authorisation 1. Start the SecureMedia Link application. 2. Click the checkbox for the required receiver(s) and click on Registration: enable or disable to change the status as required. (You can click Select Receiver: All to select all listed devices) 3. Deselect the receiver(s) by clicking Select Receiver: None. To add a Secure Media band to a receiver: 1. Start the SecureMedia Link application. 2. Click the checkbox for the required receiver(s) and select the required band from the Add band list in the Broadcast Authorisation drop down. Administrator s Guide 99

100 3. Deselect the receiver(s) by clicking Select Receiver: None To remove a Secure Media band from a receiver: 1. Start the SecureMedia Link application. 2. Click the checkbox for the required receiver(s) and select the required band from the Remove band list in the Broadcast Authorisation drop down. 3. Deselect the receiver(s) by clicking Select Receiver: None 100 Administrator s Guide

101 11 Using the Property Management System (PMS) Link The Property Management System Link application provides AvediaServer compatibility with two propriety systems, Otrum Global and FIAS (Fidelio Interface Application Specification). Otrum Global The interface supports a subset of the capabilities defined within that interface. The implemented subset specifically matches the roommaster 2000 PMS and is described in the AvediaServer RoomMaster PMS Interface Protocol document. FIAS The interface supports MICROS-Fidelio, enabling the viewing rights and sales outlet codes to be aligned with the PMS database. If the requirements differ from this please consult with the Systems Integrator. This chapter contains the following sections: Using the PMS in the Portal Client Interface Configuring for Operation with RoomMaster PMS Configuring for Operation with MICROS-Fidelio PMS Administrator s Guide 101

102 Using the PMS in the Portal Client Interface When configured for operation with a PMS the Portal enables: Displaying Guest Names Viewing Guest Bills and Checkout Guest VoD Billing Information Displaying Guest Names The guest name is displayed automatically when the Portal is configured to work with the PMS. Guest names are displayed on the Portal Client Interface home page (for example, Welcome John Smith ) Viewing Guest Bills and Checkout By default, guest bills and checkout facilities can be viewed via the first services item on the Services page in the Portal Client Interface. This can be changed or disabled. For more configuration information refer to the Portal Config application in the AvediaServer IPTV Client Interface - Administrator s Guide. The following figures show example Portal Client Interface screens: Figure 23 Portal Client Interface Viewing Account or Checkout 102 Administrator s Guide

103 Figure 24 Portal Client Interface Viewing Customer Bill Figure 25 Portal Client Interface Checking Out Guest VoD Billing Information VOD billing information displays the user s bill if they have purchased an asset(s) that has a tariff associated with it. When purchasing a VoD asset, the Statistics Code is passed to the PMS as the code for the asset and the Vendor Media ID as the description. VoD assets availability and tariffs are configured in the Content pages. Refer to Genres, Groups and Tariffs in the AvediaServer Play Administrator s Guide for more information. VoD Price and VoD Paid information is displayed on the Portal Client Interface screen. All charges on the room account (for example, bar bill, room services, and newspapers) can be viewed, in addition to any VoD purchases. For more information on configuring tariffs refer to the AvediaServer Play Administrator s Guide. Administrator s Guide 103

104 Configuring for Operation with RoomMaster PMS The following configuration tasks must be carried out before the Portal can work with the PMS. Configure the PMS IP address Configuring Receivers To configure the IP address of the RoomMaster PMS: 1. Start the PMS Link application. 2. Click the Configuration tab. 3. Select RoomMaster from the PMS Type drop down list. 4. Enter the IP address of the RoomMaster PMS in the IP Address field. 5. Enter the RoomMaster port number in the Port field. 6. Click the PMS Enabled checkbox. 7. Click the Apply button. Configuring Receivers You must configure receivers with location = room and name = <room number>, as defined in the PMS. If the receiver is incorrectly configured the Portal does not display any PMS content such as the customer name, bill, and so on. Refer to the appropriate AvediaPlayer Receiver Administrator s Guide for more information about configuring the name and location of the receivers in you IPTV system. 104 Administrator s Guide

105 Configuring for Operation with MICROS-Fidelio PMS The AvediaServer Portal supports the MICROS-Fidelio TV rights system by allowing you to align channel collections created using the Exterity Groups mechanism to the MICROS-Fidelio categories. Receivers must also have the correct naming convention applied. The blue button checkout function (as shown in Figure 24 and Figure 25) is hidden unless pre-requisite conditions are met. Also, if disabled by the PMS, the Services page is hidden from view in the Portal Client Interface. Generally, any services that are not made available to guests by the hotel PMS are hidden from view in the Portal Client Interface. The following configuration tasks must be carried out before the Portal can work with the MICROS-Fidelio PMS. They are as follows: Configuring the PMS IP address Initiate a PMS Database Swap Configuring the PMS Groups Configuring Receivers Configuring the IP Address To configure the IP address of the MICROS-Fidelio PMS: 1. Start the PMS Link application. 2. Click the Configuration tab. 3. Select Micros-Fidelio from the PMS Type drop down list. 4. Enter the IP address of the Micros-Fidelio PMS in the IP Address field. 5. Enter the Micros-Fidelio port number in the Port field. 6. Click the PMS Enabled checkbox. 7. Click the Apply button. Administrator s Guide 105

106 Initiate a PMS Database Swap In order to ensure alignment of the AvediaServer and the MICROS-Fidelio PMS you can initiate a database swap. This ensures that data such as guest occupancy is transferred to the AvediaServer, whilst purchase information is sent to the PMS. This is typically initiated from the PMS but can be initiated from the AvediaServer web interface when required. To initiate a database swap: 1. Ensure the IP address of the MICROS-Fidelio PMS has been applied and that the PMS is configured and running. 2. Click the Initiate PMS Database Swap button to execute the data exchange. Configuring the PMS Groups The AvediaServer Portal supports the MICROS-Fidelio TV rights system by providing a mechanism to align the Exterity Groups with the MICROS-Fidelio categories configured on the MICROS-Fidelio server. To configure restriction categories: 1. Start the PMS Link application. 2. Click the Configuration tab. 3. Ensure Micros-Fidelio is selected, configured, and applied. 4. Click the checkboxes in the table to match the Groups to the PMS groups. Alignment with the MICROS-Fidelio as follows: 106 Administrator s Guide
