The parameters of alerts can be configured on this tab. Cinegy Multiviewer supports various alerts that are described below. Additional notification is generated in case the problem is resolved and no further action is required.

Select the "Enable audio alarms" option to be notified about any critical and major alarms with a corresponding audible phrase. Informational alerts do not generate any audible alarms.

RTP Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the RTP stream is missing:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_RTP

You can select the severity type of the alert or disable it:

alerts_serverity_type

The threshold time for the alert can be specified in the "Threshold (ms)" field via the keyboard or by pressing the up/down arrow button correspondingly:

alerts_threshold

Video Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the video stream is missing:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_videof

For video alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts.

Audio Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the audio stream is missing:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_audio

For audio alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts.

Audio Clipping Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when audio volume exceeds the specified level (clipping):

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_clipping

For audio clipping alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts. You can also set the maximum audio level in the corresponding field via the keyboard or by pressing the up/down arrow button.

Define the min/max value alarm period in seconds using the up/down arrow button. This value identifies the time period when the alert will be raised if the configurable VU and LKFS volume options become out or above the specified range.

Audio Silence Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when audio volume is below the specified level (silent):

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_silence

For audio silence alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts. You can also set the minimum audio level in the corresponding field via the keyboard or by pressing the up/down arrow button.

Video Black Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the black frames are detected:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_video_black

For black video alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts.

You can also define the algorithm that will be used to find the difference between the first and the following frames in the sequence. Select the necessary algorithm from the corresponding pull-down list:

algorithm_menu
  • Max Level – the algorithm will look for the maximum difference between the frames;

  • Mean – the algorithm will look for the mean value difference between the frames;

  • Root Mean Square – the algorithm will look for the root mean square value between the frames.

The "Value" parameter defines the maximum difference between the first and the following frames in the sequence when these frames are treated as similar. For different algorithm this value is different.

Video Still Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the freeze frames are detected:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_video_still

For still video alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts. Also configure the algorithm type with the appropriate value in the same way as for the black video alert.

VANC Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when VANC information loss is detected:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_VANC

For VANC alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts. Select "Closed caption" / "Active format description" / "Parental rate" checkbox(es) to receive alerts when the corresponding information is missing.

Note
If the "Analyze VANC" option is not selected on the "Input Settings" tab, VANC alert settings will not be enabled.

SDI Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when SDI connection loss is detected:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_SDI

For SDI alerts, define the severity type.

Dialnorm Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the dialnorm metadata is out of the specified range in Dolby D / Dolby E streams:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_dialnorm

For dialnorm alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts. Also define the minimum and maximum loudness values. If loudness value becomes out of this range, the alert will be raised.

License Alert Settings

Here the alerts can be configured for the cases when the license is lost:

multiviewer_configurator_alarms_license

For license alerts, define the severity type and threshold value in the corresponding fields in the same way as for the RTP alerts.

To show the visible notice over the video about the license loss, select the corresponding option.
