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 MIS automatically creates a clip each time it detects DPI metadata.
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 this page: Selects all DPI clips on page; if there are no clips option is greyed out
Combine selected DPI: combine multiple DPI clips; this option is greyed out if no clips are selected
Remove selected DPI: Delete selected DPI clips; this option is greyed out if no clips are selected
Refresh list automatically: When icon is blue the page is automatically refreshed every few seconds; when white, page is not updated 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 clip detail; in List view the thumbnail is smaller and the amount of descriptive detail is much greater
Customize columns: In list view, use this feature to select which columns to display
Purge all & Export list: Purge all deletes all DPI clips; Use Export list to save DPI clip list to an Excel spreadsheet
If there are more than a single page of fault clips, MIS displays multiple page numbers at the upper right hand corner of the screen.
