Picture in Picture - Embedding external video in a template
Embedding video into a template can be accomplished either via streaming an RTSP stream from a video encoder, or by directly attaching an HDMI video source to the player. This article will detail the steps involved in the direct attach method.
This method requires hardware with an HDMI input port. We have worked with MBOX to support their Android PC with this capability. Please contact us for purchasing options..
Step 1 - Locate the HDMI input port on your player. This is where your external video source will attach to. An external video source could be a DVD player, Cable Box, CCTV video, or any number of HDMI compatible devices.
Step 2 - Add a TV zone to your template and select the HDMI input type.
Step 3 - Simply schedule your template and any video supplied to the HDMI input port will display embedded in your signage.
