Grass Valley™ MEDIAEDGE® is a multi-channel, multi-location delivery system for HD or SD video using standard TCP/IP networks and HD/SD display devices. Including server, encoder, client software, and set-top box (STB) components, the system is ideal for point-of-sale, corporate and other video retrieval and digital signage applications.

The MEDIAEDGE system delivers content in three ways: video-on-demand (VOD), scheduled playback, and live broadcast. The VOD application selects video clips stored on the MEDIAEDGE-SVS4 server for viewing via a remote control.

Scheduled playback allows unlimited number of users to view a pre-programmed arrangement of multiple video clips. Live broadcasting utilizes the real-time capabilities of its encoding devices to transmit live external SD video sources.

The MEDIAEDGE-SVS4 server is a software application for the setup and administration of broadcast systems over a client/server-based network to establish streaming video capabilities. It can be managed and updated via a Web browser.

Inactive Modules

You should publish modules to the "inactive" position and set the Menus to "All", for them to show up on pages where there is no active menu ID. This is a bug/feature of Joomla that causes only menu items in the "All" setting to show up.
