Changing the Content Settings requires admin-level privileges. To update content and import settings, add, remove, and manage content categories and customize the content metadata fields, use these options.
To manage the content categories, click on the categories option. The application displays the Category List.
To add a new category, click on the “New Root Category” button
To add a sub-category, click on the green “+” sign next to chosen root category
To remove a sub-category, click on the red “-” sign.
To edit a category, click on the category name. Change the name, description, or program guide default of the category as desired.
When creating a new category or sub-category, a popup will present you with fields for (1) naming the category or sub-category (2) a description, and (3) the option of whether or not to include content in this category in the Program Guide.
Content may be put in multiple categories, but if any category is set not to be included in the Program Guide and external schedule, that piece of content will not appear in them unless you edit the playout and check the Include in Guide option. For example, suppose you put a recycling reminder in both the Community and PSA categories. Content in the Community category normally appears in the Program Guide and external schedule, but PSAs do not. The PSA category supersedes the Community category and the recycling announcement will not appear in the Program Guide or external schedule.
You can add content to a category when adding the content file to the database, editing the content metadata, or while displaying one or more content files on the Content page.
There are several options available through the Config –> Content –> Content settings page:
The media server lets you add your own metadata fields so you can tailor your content metadata to your installation’s needs. For example your installation might track sponsors or certain producers. To customize the metadata fields, click on the custom content metadata fields option. The application displays the Metadata Setup screen. If there are no custom metadata fields, the box will be empty.
Click on the Save button at the bottom of the screen to add the attribute to the list. To return to the Metadata Setup screen without adding an attribute, click the Cancel button.
To change the settings for imported content, click on the import option. The application displays the Import Settings screen.
Click on the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save the import settings. To return to the Configuration menu without making changes, click the Cancel button.
