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 MIS 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.
The search feature works like other MIS searches. When the page first opens all search constraints are wild carded so the page will show all clips that include some DPI metadata. If there are a lot of DPI clips the search function allows you to narrow down the list.
DPI Clip Display Options¶
The ribbon at the top of the DPI Clips pane allows you to manage and modify captured clips.
Select/deselect all DPI Clips. If there are no clips this option is greyed out.
Merge multiple DPI Clips. If there are no clips this option is greyed out.
Delete one or more DPI Clips. If there are no clips this option is greyed out.
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.
Grid and List view, similar to other MIS settings. Grid displays a 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.
Opens an Excel spreadsheet listing details of each clip or delete all DPI clips.
