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, Volicon Media Intelligence service 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 DPI <Search> feature works like other Volicon Media Intelligence service searches. When the page first opens, all search constraints are wildcarded 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¶
Select/deselect all DPI clips. If there are no clips, this option is greyed out.
Merge multiple DPI clips. Unlike bookmark merge, there are no restrictions on merging clips from different sources. Otherwise, DPI merge works just like bookmark merge. If there are no clips, this option is greyed out.
Delete selected DPI clips. This option is greyed out if no clips are selected.
When this icon is blue, the page is automatically refreshed every few seconds. When the icon is white, the page does not change once it is opened. Clicking the <Auto refresh> icon toggles between the two modes.
Grid and List view are similar to other Volicon Media Intelligence service 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.
Use this icon to open an Excel spreadsheet listing details of each clip, or delete all DPI clips.
