Multiplayer Mode

You are here:

The Admira platform allows you to configure a device (player) in Multiplayer mode. In this way, as long as the equipment has two or more graphic outputs, the content distribution can be segmented into two or more differentiated channels, from a single content player / player registered in the system.

Note

Multiplayer Mode is available on players with Admira SaaS Business License. Check the license details with your assigned PM or at info@admira.com.

Switch to Multiplayer mode

To change our player to multiplayer mode, we must navigate within the Admira platform to Distribution / Inventory. Once inside the inventory we can see all the players that are in the current project.

To setup our multiplayer we must click on the configuration icon of the player that we want to change. Within the configuration form we can edit (pencil icon) our player settings.

Multiplayer mode

Within the configuration filed “Playlist mode”, select Multiplayer and then click on save changes.

How to setup and edit a Multiplayer

Once we have changed our simple/auto player to multiplayer, in configuration we have a new tab active to choose the following configuration parameters:

  • 1
    Resolution: We can choose the height and width of our multiplayer template
Resolution
  • 2
    Number of players: Giving the “+” we can add the number of “child” players that we need in our multiplayer
Number of players
  • 3
    Positioning and resolution of the “child” players: X and Y positioning axes as well as the height and width of each “child” player

Once the “child” players of the multiplayer have been configured and the changes saved, returning to the list of players we can see how new players have been created under the same name as the original player but numbered to differentiate them.

Distributing content to Multiplayers

The settings that affect the distribution of the channel’s contents, that is, the player mode (simple / auto) and the assignment of playlists or criteria and broadcast ratio (respectively for simple or automatic players), is defined by the “childplayers configuration, that appear in the inventory list, as seen in the following image:

Distributing content

In this way, the programming will be segmented, with different broadcast channels (for ex. horizontal / vertical content) for the two graphic outputs of the “parent” device configured in Multiplayer mode.

Like any other player in the system, the moment we switch a “child” player to automatic mode, it will be included in the playlists section by criteria, for configuration in advanced mode (assignment of criteria tags and emission ratio for the generation of the content timeline).

Playlists with criteria
