Article Summary

Overview of operational changes deriving from the software upgrade from version 7.5 to version 7.6.

Main changes relevant for operation:

  1. Quick assign feature - adjustment in Display tab
  2. Ad hoc announcements tab  - previous Call forward tab

1. Quick assign feature - adjustment in Display tab

In Display tab after clicking on content assignment the user is asked to select what type of content he wants to choose from: 

  • Template, 
  • Scheduler, 
  • Playlist, 
  • Media.

This allows to assign in addition to Templates also to assign Content scheduler, Playlist, and Media directly to the display. Previously it had to be inserted into template and that template then assign to the display.

 NOTE: The currently assigned content will stay assigned for the displays therefore no action is needed from the Airport side.

This tab expands the current Call forward tab with additional options: TTS announcements and Visual paging. The purpose of the tab is for ad hoc situations when no prepared announcement is available. The tab has 5 modes:

  • Call forward (Recorded message)
  • Call forward with visual (Recorded message + Visual paging)
  • Text to speech (TTS announcement)
  • Text to speech with visual (TTS announcement + Visual paging)

 For every mode, you can set repetition and priority.
