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.

DPI clip display options

image Select/deselect all DPI clips. If there are no clips, this option is greyed out.

image 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.

image Delete selected DPI clips. This option is greyed out if no clips are selected.

image 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.

image 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.

image Use this icon to open an Excel spreadsheet listing details of each clip, or delete all DPI clips.
