Configure Multiview screen

Once the new screen matrix is created, it needs to be configured. Hover over the desired screen and click the <Edit layout> icon. Position the cursor over the desired cell and left click to open the widget list. Notice the cell turns blue. Depending on which cell you select, you may see some inward- or outward- facing arrows. Clicking an outward-facing arrow expands the cell. Clicking an inward-facing arrow reduces its size. The corner arrows expand or reduce the cell by a factor of four, maintaining the same aspect ratio. Arrows are only populated if the expand/reduce operation is permissible. For example, in the figure below there are no inward-facing arrows showing in the smaller widget cell. That indicates the cell size cannot be reduced. Likewise, the larger cell does not have any outward-facing arrows at the bottom, for it is at the bottom of the screen and cannot be expanded in that direction.

Once you create a widget, you are not able to reposition it. If you need to move a widget, use <Delete> (right click on the widget) and recreate a new widget.

Screen widgets

There are 10 widget icons.


Player displays a low-resolution thumbnail of the channel. Use the right-hand pane to select the desired channel. At the bottom are <Advanced options> to display the audio bar graph, faults and closed captioning. In Multiview, the player is always live.

Quarantine is a modified streaming viewer similar to the viewer in other Volicon Media Intelligence service suites. However, unlike other widgets, only one instance is supported. Click the <Inspect> icon on one of the thumbnail players to play in the Quarantine player.

Clock defaults to your computer’s system time, but it can be changed to use any time zone by using the right-hand panel.

Loudness displays the loudness graph.

Map allows you to display faults by region. Select the region from the side of the page.

Path displays the channel name but not an active thumbnail. Click on the <Bullseye> to open the Quarantine player.

Faults display the fault status of one or more channels. Select the channels to monitor from the right-hand panel.

Penalty box displays channels experiencing fault conditions.

URL displays any desired web page or image from a website. Enter the URL in the right-hand panel. If desired, Volicon Media Intelligence service can be set to automatically update content.

Alerts display selected channel alerts.
