DPI Clips Tab

Digital Program Insertion (DPI) metadata allows cable headends and broadcast affiliates to insert locally-generated commercials and short programs into remotely distributed regional programs before they are delivered to customers. If this feature is enabled in the encoder MIP automatically creates a clip each time it detects DPI metadata.

If any of the video channels include DPI metadata and the feature is enabled in the associated encoder use this feature to display relevant bookmarks.

DPI Clip Display Options

The ribbon at the top of the DPI Clips pane allows you to manage and modify captured clips.

image When icon is blue the page is automatically refreshed every few seconds. When the icon is white page does not change once it is opened. Clicking the Auto Refresh icon toggles between the two modes.

image Grid and List view, similar to other MIP settings. Grid displays large thumbnail and limited descriptive detail about the clip. In List view the thumbnail is smaller and the selection of descriptive detail is much greater.
