Need explanation for some scl file parameters
« on: July 24, 2010, 06:37:37 PM »
I as just looking scl files created for a 3x3 videowall so I could better understand how it all functions and found a few things that don't understand.
Here is part of scl file:

Quote
<root>
   <VideoWallGroup>True</VideoWallGroup>
   <VideoWallNumber>9</VideoWallNumber>
   <VideoWallSize>3*3</VideoWallSize>
   <VideoWallPos>0</VideoWallPos>
   <NaturalMode>True</NaturalMode>
   <FullFit>True</FullFit>
   <VideoWallMaster>False</VideoWallMaster>
   <MasterMAC>000018251035126093</MasterMAC>
   <MasterIP>192.168.1.233</MasterIP>
   <Schedule>
      <VideoWallSch>True</VideoWallSch>
      <StartDay>2010-07-23</StartDay>
      <StartTime>09:30:00</StartTime>
      <StopDay>2010-07-23</StopDay>
      <StopTime>22:30:00</StopTime>
      <Screen>
         <ScreenPath>C:\Program Files\SEC\MagicInfo Pro\Screen\Screen4.scn</ScreenPath>
         <ScreenVideoWallPos>6</ScreenVideoWallPos>
         <ScreenSize>3*3</ScreenSize>
      </Screen>
   </Schedule>

I am interested in parameters in bold.
1. Why is at the begining of scl file VideoWallPos defined as 0?
2. What does FullFit mean?
3. What is VideoWallMaster? (maybe it is used for playback sync in a wall)

Hope someone can answer my questions.

I think you are aksing too much....

This is all XML scripting and it is obeyed by the Samsung MagicInfo pro player/client. It is basically going to the target drive D: and it interprets this scripting file. In particular:

1. Why is at the begining of scl file VideoWallPos defined as 0? - This is clearly a setting for a video wall
2. What does FullFit mean? - Only photo and movie can do video wall, so it has to be fully scaled to the whole set of screens
3. What is VideoWallMaster? (maybe it is used for playback sync in a wall) - This is the sigrnature of the first Display, it has to be the top left corner for syncing purposes.

I hope this helps.

Bill

If that was the case then I would not have gotten my answers  ;)
I want to know as much as possible so I could do better job, that is why I am asking these questions.

Just as I thought, only for me it is lower right corner (I know this because of IP address which is one of parameters in scl file.)

Thanks Bill for clearing out these questions.
