Server Connection Indication

connection_indicators

The number of indicators on the left from the CG layer name corresponds to the number of currently configured servers. When connection to the defined playout server(s) is properly established, a green indicator is displayed. The connected server name on the main info panel is displayed in green. When connection to the playout server is lost, the green indicator changes to red; the server name is displayed in red as well.

If two or more playout servers are defined in the Cinegy CG "Settings" dialog and all of them are properly connected, broadcasting is carried out on all of them. When connection to either of playout servers is lost, broadcasting proceeds on the connected server(s):
