|04. Status and Control Page|
The default (home) page of the Navigator Web Interface is the Status and Control page.
This sample shows a configuration that has 3 projectors (Hardwired Dell 5100, SNMP Controlled 5100 A, and SNMP Controlled 5100 B. And, in addition to the standard location (All Locations), there are two other locations (First Floor and Second Floor). On the left is the Site Navigator, which allows the user to select which location appears on the right site. The example shows the default mode, where All Locations is the selected Location. When selected, a location and its devices will appear in the right-most pane. If a projector is selected, the right pane will scroll so the selected device is visible. The icons in the Site Navigator describe the state of the devices, and of the locations. A location will show a particular icon if any device with the location shows that icon.
The sample below shows another snapshot of the configuration shown above. In this case, the Second Floor location has been selected, which contains 2 of the projectors. At the time this snapshot was taken, the Hardwired device was starting up (thus the yellow icon) and the SNMP B device was disconnected.
The rightmost pane is the Location Status and Control view. The top-most strip (Second Floor as shown) provides controls that apply to all devices in that location. This allows the user to turn all devices on or off with a single click. Similarly, volume can be set and mute can be enabled or disabled for all devices with one click.
Beneath the location strip are sections that describe each device present in that location, and allow the user to control that device specifically. Note the SNMP B device has a Disconnected error appearing to the right of its title. This is where status messages appear. When the device is online, the power icon will show green and the lamp hours will appear in this area:
On the far right of each strip, you’ll see buttons labeled More and Less. These allow the user to see only the primary controls (as in the first projector row), or to show expanded controls (as the second projector row). These settings will be remembered so next time you see that device it will appear with the same controls showing.
Within a projector’s control strip, the first button Power is always present. The color of this button indicates the state of the device. These colors correspond to the icons in the Site Navigator. Green is on, Red is an error state (Disconnected above), and Yellow means the device is changing (warming up or cooling down). Gray indicates the projector is off. The other controls appear according to the attributes provided by the selected projector. Now, look to the Site Navigator. You’ll see the status of each device appearing again as an indicator. And, the highlighted Second Floor has a Green and Red icon, because at least one device contained within it is on, and at least one is in error.
You may change the input source of a projector by selecting the corresponding button. After the source is successfully selected, the button will appear in the highlighted green mode. The other controls should be self-explanatory, and correlate to the basic projector functions. Note that the latency within the system and within the projector may not produce immediate response; it may be necessary to wait a moment or two before the request has the desired effect.
