webOS Display Profile Settings


#1

Settings for the Xibo for webOS Player and the monitor itself can be controlled in the Xibo CMS. This can be done via webOS Display Profile settings or by Commands sent directly to the Display.

This page will explain what settings can be set on the webOS Display Profile and how those impact the Xibo for webOS Player.

Navigate to the Display Settings page under the Displays section of the main menu of the CMS and use the row menu to Edit your webOS Display Profile.

This section will focus on three important tabs on the Edit form, the on/off Time, Picture and Lock tabs.

On/Off Time

The Xibo for webOS player can be configured to switch the TV screen on/off at specific times on specific days of the week by providing a JSON object with specified days and on/off times for the webOS Player.

Days need to be completed in whole and only in lowercase eg. monday

Times need to be provided in the usual 24h time format eg. 17:30

An example of the JSON object correctly formatted to provide for one day is shown below:

{"monday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"17:30"}}

This means on Monday at 7am the display will turn on and at 5:30pm the display will turn off.

Please note: when the "off" Command is sent, the Player will still work in the background to receive content updates etc, and only the TV screen will be switched off.

An example of the JSON object correctly formatted for a whole week is shown below:

{"monday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"17:30"},"tuesday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"21:00"},"wednesday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"17:30"},"thursday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"21:00"},"friday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"21:00"},"saturday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"15:30"}, "sunday":{"on":"07:00", "off":"14:30"}}

This feature allows you to plan exact timings on the days you require Xibo for webOS to automatically switch on to show your Scheduled content and switch off as required.

Picture

Please note: The following settings are only available on Xibo for webOS 1.8R10 or later.

Provide a JSON object to control various monitor settings such as backlight, contrast, brightness etc.

An example of the JSON object correctly formatted to provide backlight and brightness set to 20 gamma high, is shown below:

{"backlight": 20, "brightness":20, "gamma": "high"}

Lock

Please note: The following settings are only available on Xibo for webOS 1.8R10 or later.

Provide a JSON object to control osdlock and usblock with true or false values on this tab.

osdlock - with this setting you will not be able to access the monitor settings, change volume, brightness etc from the remote control.

usblock - with this setting any device that you plug into the monitor using the USB port will not work, the monitor will not accept input from it/will not read from it

It is also possible to send osdlock and usblock with true or false values via a Display Command

To pass the settings to the Player you need to provide a JSON object, as formatted in the example below:

{"usblock": false, "osdlock": true}

With this set in the Display Profile, the osd of the monitor will be locked and usb ports will remain open.

It is important to note that Settings applied to a Display Profile will override individually sent Commands at some future point (most likely at the next collection interval) when the Display will revert to the original setting as specified in the Display Profile.

Keylock

Please note:** The following settings are only available on Xibo for webOS 1.8R11 or later.

Keylock settings can be set remote and/or local with accepted values: allowall, blockall and poweronly

These settings allow the User to completely block key input, including power on/off on the remote and/or on the monitor itself.

To pass the settings to the Player you need to provide a JSON object, as formatted in the example below:

{"keylock":{"local":"blockall","remote":"poweronly"}}

With the above JSON object set in the Display Profile all keys on the monitor will have access blocked and only the remote power button will work.
