Conditional assignment

You are here:

Like the assignment to a specific content, we will go to the Playlists section to be able to do it, although this time we will go directly to the “Assign” icon in the menu bar.

Introduction

Admira’s conditional digital content playback system allows you to modify the content and/or the way it is displayed on a player, depending on the evaluation of certain external agents and the establishment of a series of conditions that must be met for a content is displayed on the screen.

The conditional system provides the player with greater intelligence, since it will be able to determine at any time, based on a series of predetermined conditions and the evaluation of their fulfillment, what content is going to be reproduced next, beyond the programming that have assigned (content included in a loop or simple playlist).

From the Administration > Management > Conditions Assignment section, you can condition the behavior of the following elements:

  • Contents and/or blocks in a simple playlist
  • Act in real time on external changes (Triggers)
  • Templates both in simple playlists and in advanced mode

The conditional player functionality allows programming to be segmented based on variable external parameters, such as the geolocation of players installed in bus/taxis fleets (geopositioning by quadrants or groups of 4 position marker conditions –latitude and longitude–), number and sex of the people who are looking at a screen (audience measurement) or values provided by temperature sensors.

Conditions

They are the necessary circumstances that must occur at a given time for the player to broadcast content X.

Condition group

Conjunctive grouping (“AND”) of various conditions. It is used to combine multiple conditions that must be fulfilled simultaneously for the player to emit content X.

Condition Types

The condition types are the labels for each reference to a condition, that is, the TOPIC to evaluate. For example, multiple conditions from different topics or from the same topic can be evaluated in a condition pool.

  • Topic A : Number of observers
  • Topic B : Gender of the observers

As an example of audience gender conditions, we would do it as follows:

  • If Audience Sex = 1 replace with Male creative
  • If Audience Sex = 2 replace with creative of Woman

Other conditions that we can apply are:

  • Total Audience: Total number of people in front of the screen.
  • Male Audience: Total number of people in front of the screen.
  • Female Audience: Number of women in front of the screen
  • Audience Arrived: Newcomer audience in front of the screen
  • Audience Sex: Sex majority (for example: 0 = equality, 1 = men, 2 = women)

Conditions priority

The same element of the simple playlist can have multiple conditions assigned, in these cases the priority is determined by its order in the list, so that the first condition evaluated will be the one with the lowest priority, and can be modified by the next one. At the first condition that is fulfilled, the action will be carried out (replacement/issuance of the affected content).

Actions

These are the actions that will be applied in the event that a group of conditions is met.

The actions that can be carried out are:

  • Replace a content with another content/block of a playlist (keeping its properties): in this case the content/block that replaces the current one must exist in the playlist (CONTENT_REPLACE)
  • Replace a content with another content/block that does not belong to the playlist, in this case neither broadcast schedules nor number of passes, etc. (FILE_REPLACE) are taken into account
  • Replace a template applied to a playlist element (content / block / block content) or to the same template (TEMPLATE_REPLACE)

Triggers

Triggers are groups of conditions evaluated in real time to modify the substitution or adaptation of a conditioned element.

Triggers have a higher priority over groups of conditions that can be set for a single playlist position.

 

How to assign conditions on the platform

We can access the Assignment of Conditions from the Administration > Management > Assignment of Conditions section. From this section, the triggers that will affect one or more players on the circuit are created and added.

Players list

Configuration example

Conditions for a simple player.

Configuration for a simple player

Conditions in the simple playlist assigned to a player.

Edit playlists

The user interface allows:

  • Create / Edit: Types and groups of conditions
  • Add / Edit: Conditions
  • Apply / Modify: Resulting Action
  • Delete: Click on “delete” and then on the “Save triggers” button

Important

To correctly define and save an area of the map in which the condition will be applied, it is necessary to center the circle on a certain point and, once the radius of action is well defined, click on the center before “Save”.

Conditions Library

This new system resource allows you to save the conditions created to add them later or assign them to another player on the circuit. In this way, if the same triggers have to be put into operation on a regular basis, the project conditions can be configured only once and implemented when necessary in an agile and simple way.

If you need to load a previously saved condition, click the “Add from library” button, and choose the desired condition from the project conditions library selector.
