Serial / Com Port
From within the Settings Menu, Integrations Tab, you can choose to interact with different com devices. These devices can be used to receive or send commands.
|Serial Port||Dropdown box to select the Com Port to listen for commands on.|
|Enabled|| Opens or closes the Com Port for commands to be sent and received.
|Device||Choose the serial device you will be communicating with.|
|Send Carriage Return|| Sends a carriage return at the end of each command sent. Some devices such as the Barix hardware need this to be checked so they know where a command stops.
|Replace Characters||When checked, the replace parameters will become active|
| Characters To Replace
||Type the characters to replace in this box. This is useful when you are receiving commands from two identical hardware boxes. Both boxes may send a command of SOP A,1,1,1,1 however you want to trigger different PlayoutONE commands for each different box.|
|Characters To Replace With||In the example above, we can replace SOP A with SOP B so that we can identify commands coming from each box and act upon them accordingly.|
