Media

The Media object identifies the NFS servers in your network. The NFS servers are used for downloading files such as announcements or treatments to the DSP chips on the IMG. Once downloaded to the 2020 IMG, they can be played whenever needed. Refer to information below.

To play announcements or treatments, an NFS server must be configured to send the announcement and treatment files to the 2020 IMG. The NFS server can be configured on the GCEMS server or can be configured on a separate server. Configure an NFS server before configuring the Media and Media Modules.

NFS Timeout (default/minimum value = 500 msec)

The NFS Timeout field is used to configure the amount of time it takes the IMG to mount the NFS server to start downloading the files the IMG is requesting. Depending on the network type, the time it takes to mount the NFS server could vary. To modify, double click in the NFS Timeout (msec) field and the background of the field will change to white. At this point, highlight the default value and enter a newer value. The Timeout value that is entered can range from 500 msec (.5 seconds) to 1000 msec (1 second) and can be modified at any time.

Monitoring Fields:

Primary and Secondary Server Status fields will give the user a status of whether the NFS server is available, failed, or Not Configured.
