INFORMATION


  • Step 1
    • In Plugncast G3, once your layouts are build properly and your playout using this layout is built properly, get the unic ID of each grid
      • ex:
        • Select a grid (in playout > layout > Grid)
          • ex: Grid #1
        • Click on Rename button, note the unic ID for this grid, then press Cancel button
          • ex: 08ad0998-91bd-4411-bed5-74d02b05e21c
        • Select another grid (in playout > layout > Grid)
          • ex: Grid #2
        • Click on Rename button, note the unic ID for this grid, then press Cancel button
          • ex: 28957f33-bb44-499f-866a-c8e0aefb7467
  • Step 2
    • Fill properly the "UDPport" integer value in the file UDPGridChange-V1.10.10.js
      • ex:
        • var UDPport = <YOUR_UDP_PORT>;
    • In the same file, fill also properly the "grids" array values value according to yours {free UDP message value, grid ID} by keeping the javascript syntax
      • ex
        • var grids =[{ udpMsg:"GRID1", gridUID:"08ad0998-91bd-4411-bed5-74d02b05e21c"} ,{ udpMsg:"GRID2", gridUID:"28957f33-bb44-499f-866a-c8e0aefb7467"}]
  • Step 3
    • In Plugncast G3,
      • Add the script UDPGridChange-V1.10.10.js in your library then
      • Drop the script UDPGridChange-V1.10.10.js in the property tab of your playout (into the Window Script to execute
      • Publish the content
  • Step 4
    • With a software (not provided by Innes), send the appropriate UDP message on the network to commute the grid dynamically
      • ex:
        • send the UDP message GRID1
          • The player should commute on Grid #1
        • send the UDP message GRID2
          • The player should commute on Grid #2
