The simple mode is useful for circuits that are not very large, and with little segmentation, that is, a small amount of content and a similar broadcast.
In Simple Mode, the content is chosen individually or organized in blocks and added to the playlist, giving it a position. This will be the playback order and once the playback reaches the end of the list, it will start again (looping).
Once the Playlist is generated, the user specifies in which Players it is going to be broadcast, assigning one or more playlists to each team.
Recommended for large-scale circuits with high distribution segmentation, in Advanced Mode playlists are generated automatically based on criteria, categories and ratios assigned to content and Players and previously defined by the user.
Advanced mode: Real scenario
We created a project in a shopping center in which there are 3 different areas: restaurant area, shopping area and leisure area. This is a criteria, the area where the Player is, which can have the aforementioned types as values. According to this criteria we will distribute the content in the Players.
Therefore, we will create a category for each “group” of content (Cinema, Advertising, News), and within each category we will specify the type of content (Restaurants, Telephony, etc.). In addition, we want advertising and content relevant to the area in which the Player is to be broadcast. To a lesser extent, we want to broadcast news and curiosities.
Having all this defined, now we have to upload the content. As we upload it, we assign it to criteria and categories. For example, if we upload a movie trailer, we will assign it to the Entertainment Zone criterion and to the Cinema category, while if we upload a news clip we will assign it to all the zones and to the News category. Then all that remains is to define the schedule (number or percentage of showings or unlimited), and the system will take care of generating the Playlist for the whole day and distributing the content automatically, respecting all the given parameters.
