Multichannel variation blocks are used in the workflow when several channels are configured to follow the same playlist, but each channel should have its own window when it plays region-specific content like local news or commercials.
To configure this workflow, follow the steps:
In the Cinegy Air Configurator in multi-channel control mode, define the same playlist for all channels. The "Shared playlist" option will become disabled for these channels.
In a Cinegy Air playlist, set the "Multichannel variation" type for the block that will have regional variation in content. Then fill the block with the corresponding items.
|When the block type is changed to "Multichannel variation", the first item in the block receives the "clocked" trigger.|
