Using Rivendell As A Video Playout System
From Rivendell Wiki
Rivendell Video Playout System
High Level Explanation of what is going on
Basically, using Rivendell as a video (television?) automation system involves the "trick" of using macro carts in a video group (in several video dedicated groups?) with cart_cut numbers matching the video file names and storing them in /var/vid where Rivindell's normal audio goes in /var/snd
There is some macro and bash script "trickery" which allows a log of video macro carts loaded into rdairplay to thay the videos as scheduled. A jock in the studion sitting in front of the rdairplay screen can do a lof of what a radio station jock can do.
Learn to use Rivendell as a Radio Automation System First
I suggest you get to know Rivendell as it is intended to be used first.
- Learn rdlibrary for managing your assets.
- Learn rdlogmanager and how to use events, clocks, and grids to generate logs.
- Learn how to use rdairplay to play your audio.
