Time Zone

MIS defaults to the same time zone as your computer. If you want to override that setting and select a different time zone use the Time Zone pulldown.


The Default Metadata State and Default Loudness Meter State sets default viewer behavior. For example: if CC (Closed Captioning) is selected and the channel is Closed Captioned, it will be displayed whenever the channel is opened in the viewer. You are still able to change the viewer behavior directly however the next time the viewer is opened it reverts to its default behavior.
