Interactivity

The goal of this application note is to explain how to activate the interactivity with device to support user interaction with:

  • USB keyboard
  • Innes remote control
  • Monitor remote control
    • if CEC is supported
    • to know the key values managed by your monitor remote control, refer to the monitor datasheet
  • Touch screen monitor

COMPATIBILITIES

  • Gekkota OS 4.12.10 (or above)
    • DMB400
    • SMA300

KEYBOARD OR REMOTE CONTROL INTERACTIVITY

The innes.hid.keyboard-event.*.authorized user preference needs to be set to true to support the user interactivity with USB keyboard or infrared remote control.

TOUCH SCREEN

The innes.hid.pointer-event.*.authorized user preference needs to be set to true to support the user interactivity for example with touch screen devices.

The interactivity with user touch:

  • is supported for Web page but
  • is not supported for MS-PowerPoint.

When using a touch screen peripheral, the drag and the scrolling are supported properly.

Warning: when using Playzilla 4.XX.YY, it is required to run a playout script Scrollbar restore to display the scroll bar along the Web page. For further information refer to the appropriate playout script release note.

APP

To be interactive with keyboard or monitor remote control, the media has to be played with the behavior interactivity option activated. For more information, refer to your App publishing software.

For the App Qeedji PowerPoint publisher for Media players, there is no behavior interactivity option in the Settings > Advanced menu because the MS-Powerpoint media is always played with the behavior interactivity option activated.
