Chapter 1 Overview
Cisco StadiumVision is a proven, end-to-end, high-definition IPTV solution that
provides advanced video content management and delivery. It is a centrallymanaged, video processing and distribution solution that enables the integration and
automated delivery of customized and dynamic content from multiple sources to
different areas of the stadium in Standard Definition (SD), High Definition (HD), or
both.
Cisco StadiumVision is purpose-built for sports and entertainment venues, which
have extensive video systems deployed throughout and is designed to enhance the
viewing of live events and to provide in-house advertising. In addition, it leverages
video systems in restaurants, clubs, and luxury suites to allow fans to view both inhouse programming as well as external network channels.
Cisco StadiumVision comprises four major components, as shown in Figure 1:




Video acquisition (or video headend)
Converged voice, video, and data high-speed IP network
Video delivery (and signage playback)
Centralized management and operations
Figure 1.
Cisco StadiumVision Major Components
As part of the management and operations, Cisco StadiumVision offers a variety of
options for local TV control. Each option provides users with the ability to control the
on/off settings, the volume, and the channels displayed on the TV.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 8 of 83
Local TV Control
Typically, TVs that are placed throughout the concourses and in “public” spaces are
controlled centrally through Cisco StadiumVision Director. However, TVs that are
placed elsewhere, such as luxury suites, restaurants, clubs and bars, back office,
and press boxes, require the ability for local control.
Several components of the Cisco StadiumVision solution work together to provide
local TV control, as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2.
Local TV Control (IP Phone Example)
Options for Local TV Control
1B
As shown in Figure 3, Cisco StadiumVision provides several options for Local TV
control, which includes controlling the state of the TV (on/off), the volume, and the
channel displayed.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 9 of 83
Figure 3.
Local TV Control Options
The options include:



A Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975
A third-party touch panel, such as Crestron or AMX
An infrared (IR) remote for the Cisco DMP
Only one option can be used to control a given Cisco StadiumVision TV. Typically,
each option is used in specific areas of the venue.

Cisco IP Phones are generally used for local control in luxury suites, in back
offices, and in press boxes.

Third-party touch screen devices are generally used in clubs, restaurants, and
bars, though they can be used in large luxury suites (recommended for those
with more than 9 TVs). They can be used to control over 100 TVs.

The Cisco IR Remote is generally only used in situations where local control of a
single TV is needed and the other options are not feasible.
Regardless of the type of device used, the local TV control device cannot change the
template used or any content on the screen (such as the ticker, ads in the playlist, or
full-screen message) other than the channel. For example, if the TV is showing an
emergency message, the local TV control device has no effect on the content
displayed.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 10 of 83
Note: As an exception to the above, the local TV control can be used to navigate
away from the Welcome message in a luxury suite.
Cisco IP Phone
If a Cisco IP Phone is used, it must be a Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975. This phone
provides a touch screen interface and color display to interact with the user and is
the only phone supported as a local TV control device for Cisco StadiumVision.
The phone uses Cisco StadiumVision Director to provide instructions to the DMP for
TV on/off, volume control, and channel selection.
If a DVD player, PC or other external source is connected to the TV, the Cisco IP
Phone also allows the user to change the input to the locally attached video device
through a pre-determined auxillary input.
In luxury suites (and other areas where the phone acts as the primary control device
for the TVs), it is recommended that the Cisco StadiumVision Services page be
configured as the standard phone display. In press boxes, back offices, and other
locations where using the phone as a local TV control device may be secondary, it is
recommended that the default call services phone display remain and “Service URL”
buttons be configured for easy access to TV Services and Commerce Services.
Note: Although additional Cisco IP Phones may be present, only one Cisco IP
Phone can be associated with the DMPs in the suite and, therefore, only one can
provide the local control. Any additional Cisco IP Phones act simply as phones and
are provided for the user‟s convenience.
Third-Party Touch Panels
Typically, third-party touch panels are used for local TV control in areas where Cisco
IP Phones cannot be secured or in locations (bars, restaurants, clubs) where a
significant number of displays need to be controlled with a single device.
The third-party device uses the Cisco StadiumVision Director API for local control to
provide instructions to the DMP for TV on/off, volume control, and channel selection.
The third-party touch panel displays a menu of up to 10 favorite channels. In the
event that the desired channel is not among the favorite channels, the third party
touch panel allows users to select from a larger channel lineup. Note: The favorites
feature for panels will be removed in a future release.
Currently supported third-party touch panels include Crestron
(http://www.crestron.com/) or AMX (http://www.amx.com/). These devices
communicate through Cisco StadiumVision Director to provide instructions to the
DMP for TV on/off, volume control, and channel selection.

IR Remote
Unlike the Cisco IP phone and the third-party touch panel, the IR Remote (an
optional accessory for the Cisco DMP) communicates directly with the DMP for
on/off and volume control. It also communicates directly with the DMP for channel
selection; however, the DMP pulls its defined channel lineup from Cisco
StadiumVision Director.
If a DVD player, PC, or other external source is connected to the TV, the IR remote
also allows the user to change the input to the locally attached video device.
Luxury Suite: A Unique Local Control Area
A luxury suite is a unique implementation of a local TV control area. Physically, a
luxury suite generally consists of a “living room” space, kitchenette, a small
bathroom, and an exterior balcony overlooking the venue. In the Cisco
StadiumVision design, each luxury suite typically contains the following:


One or more flat panel TVs, each with an attached Cisco Digital Media Player
(DMP). One of the TVs is often identified as the “welcome” TV to display a
introductory welcome message. Each TV can display different content/channel.
One Cisco IP Phone, each associated with Cisco Unified Communications
Manager. This phone provides touch screen control of all TVs in the suite, and
should be situated so that a person using it has a view of all TV positions.
Figure 4 shows an example of a luxury suite.

Local TV Control in Luxury Suites
2B
As mentioned previously, in Cisco StadiumVision a single, designated Cisco Unified
IP Phone 7975 enables luxury suite owners and guests to control the power, volume,
and channel selection for each of the TVs in the suite. The IP Phone can also be
configured to provide access to commerce services, which allow users to place
orders with the venue‟s catering and merchandise store, as shown in Figure 5.
Figure 5.
Luxury Suite Local TV Control and Commerce Integration
Using Cisco StadiumVision Director Video Management Services on a Cisco IP
Phone, owners and guests can control the power and volume of the TV and access
a channel guide to select from the full channel lineup. Luxury suite owners and
guests can also use the Cisco IP Phone to change the input on a particular video
display to a locally attached DVD player or PC.
Using Cisco StadiumVision Director Commerce Services on the same Cisco IP
Phone and integration with a third-party PoS application, owners and guests can
also place orders with the venue‟s catering and merchandise departments. Luxury
suite owners, guests, and suite attendants can easily navigate through menus, view
images of the items on one of the HD TVs in the suite, and easily (and securely)
place an order from the Cisco IP Phone touch screen.
Note: Although there are other options for local TV control, the Cisco IP Phone is the
preferred option for a luxury suite because it allows access to both video control
services and commerce services from a single device. In addition, only one control
device can be used at a time in a Luxury suite. For example, if you are using an IP
Phone, an IR remote cannot be used and vice versa.
Welcome Display in a Luxury Suite
3B
In a luxury suite, one of the TVs is typically identified as the main or “welcome”
display. This allows the venue to display static signage that welcomes the suite

Page 13 of 83
visitors to venue and instructs them to use the IP Phone to control the room (as
shown in Figure 6).
Figure 6.
Luxury Suite Welcome Display
Customization in a Luxury Suite
4B
Using the Cisco StadiumVision solution, the IP Phone display and content displayed
on the TVs in the luxury suite can be customized for the specific venue, event, or
luxury suite owner.

Page 14 of 83
Figure 7.
Luxury Suite Customization
For example:




The “welcome” TV can display information unique to the suite owner or sponsor.
Each TV in the suite can display select advertisements (using an L-wrapper
template) as defined by the luxury suite owner.
The Cisco IP Phone can display the logo of the venue sponsor, the team, or the
suite owner.
The channel lineup on the TV can display the team logo.
This customization not only enables a unique experience for the suite owner, but
also enables additional revenue streams for the venue through sponsorship.

Required Applications and Services
There are several applications and services that play a role in enabling the local
control. Some are part of the Cisco StadiumVision family of software, others are
standard Cisco offerings.

Cisco StadiumVision Director (Base License)
Generally speaking, Cisco StadiumVision Director enables centralized content
and scheduling control and administration across the entire venue. It provides a
set of applications to establish, coordinate, and manage interactivity between all
areas of the venue. Cisco StadiumVision Director is also used to define the
channel lineup for the venue.
With respect to local TV control, Cisco StadiumVision Director contains
definitions for each of the DMPs (which are attached to TVs), Cisco IP Phones,
and third-party touch panels. Leveraging those definitions, Cisco StadiumVision
Director allows users to create local control areas by designating which DMPs
are to be controlled by a given Cisco IP Phone or third-party touch panel.
Note: All designated local control areas, including clubs, bars, restaurants, back
offices, and press boxes, are defined using the “Luxury Suites” tab in Cisco
StadiumVision Director.
Regarding channel selection, Cisco StadiumVision Director also contains the
definitions of each individual channel and the channel lineup.
Each video stream received from the Cisco StadiumVision headend is
associated with a locally-designated channel.
The channel lineup includes a listing of the defined channels and is accessible
by the local TV control devices.
Using the master channel line up, you can create customized per-area channel
guides for use in the local control areas.

Cisco StadiumVision Director Luxury Suite Applications: Video Management
Services
This is an optional set of Cisco StadiumVision Director licensed services that
enables the Cisco Unified Communications IP Phone environment to interact
with the TV to control power, volume, and channel selection.

Cisco StadiumVision Director Local Control API
This is optional set of Cisco StadiumVision Director licensed services that allows
third-party touch panels to be used for local control in areas where IP Phones
are not secure or where significant numbers of displays are to be controlled with
a single device.


Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM)
CUCM is an enterprise-class IP telephony call-processing system that provides
traditional telephony features, such as speed dials, as well as advanced
capabilities.
Process Flows
This section provides an overview of the flow of the local TV control processes.
Local TV Control via a Cisco IP Phone
5B
At a functional level, several components interact to enable the communications
required for local TV control from a Cisco IP Phone.
Figure 8.
Local TV Control via a Cisco IP Phone
To enable the TV control process:


The channel guide and associated icons are defined in Cisco StadiumVision
Director.
The underlying commands used by the DMP to change the channel, input, and
volume are configured in Cisco StadiumVision Director.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 17 of 83


The images that make up the phone UI (including the icons) are stored in SVD.
The IP Phone is subscribed to the Cisco StadiumVision Services on CUCM.
When the user touches TV/Volume on the IP Phone (for example to change a
channel):
1. The IP Phone sends a request for video control services to Cisco StadiumVision
Director.
2. The Cisco StadiumVision Director dynamically creates the XML (content and
pointers) for the local TV control device. Simultaneously, Cisco StadiumVision
Director sends an http request to CUCM for the phone‟s speeddial information (if
using speeddials).
3. The Cisco StadiumVision Director sends the XML information to the IP phone to
update the touch-screen content. The XML includes urls to the screen graphics that
the phone must show next. These graphics are built by SVD on the fly as the user
navigates thru the menus.
4. The Cisco StadiumVision Director simultaneously sends HTTP commands to the
DMP to effect the channel change (or other command). These commands instruct
the DMP to “listen to” a different IP multicast address.
5. The DMP joins the new IP multicast group to pick up the new channel.
6. The DMP receives the video content from the IP network via IP Multicast, merges
the new video stream into the correct template, and sends it to the TV via an HDMI,
S-Video, or component video (YPrPb) connection.
Local TV Control via a Third-Party Touch Panel
6B
At a functional level, several components interact to enable the communications
required for local TV control from a third-party touch panel.
Figure 9.
Local TV Control via a Third-Party Touch Panel

Page 18 of 83
To enable the TV control process:


The channel guide is defined in Cisco StadiumVision Director.
The underlying commands used by the DMP to change the channel, input, and
volume are configured in Cisco StadiumVision Director.
When the user touches TV/Volume on the third-party touch panel (for example to
change a channel):
1. The touch panel sends a request for video control services to Cisco StadiumVision
Director local control API
2. The Cisco StadiumVision Director server sends the XML information to the touch
panel to update the touch panel content.
3. The Cisco StadiumVision Director server simultaneously sends HTTP commands to
the DMP to effect the channel change (or other command). These commands
instruct the DMP to “listen to” a different IP multicast address.
4. The DMP joins the new IP multicast group to pick up the new channel.
5. The DMP receives the video content from the IP network via IP Multicast, merges
the new video stream into the correct template, and sends it to the TV via an HDMI,
S-Video, or component video (YPrPb) connection.

Chapter 2 Planning
This chapter provides information about how to plan for local TV control in a Cisco
StadiumVision venue.
Selecting the Appropriate Control Device
The device chosen for local TV control depends largely on the number of TVs to be
controlled.
Table 2.
Selecting the Appropriate Local TV Control Device
Quantity of TVs
Example of Location
Recommended Device
1
Press box, back office
IR remote or Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975
1-9
Luxury Suite
Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975
>9
Bar, club, restaurant
Third-party touch panel
Note: Although the IP Phone can support up to 29 TVs, the initial TV selection panel
can list up to 9 TVs. Therefore, the recommendation is to use the IP Phone in luxury
suites with 9 or less TVs.
IR Remote
7B
When using an IR remote for local TV control, keep the following in mind:



Can control only a single TV.
Requires line-of-sight access to the DMP‟s Infra Red (IR) receiver.
Requires Cisco StadiumVision Alternate Device Services license.
Cisco IP Phone
8B
When using a Cisco IP Phone for local TV control, keep the following in mind:






Recommended option for luxury suites. However, if the venue uses a non-Cisco
VoIP solution in the luxury suites, use a third-party touch panel for local control.
Can control up to 29 TVs, but recommendation is to limit to 9. Greater than 9
TVs will require the user to navigate through multiple pages to locate the desired
TV.
If the phone is used in a suite with more than 9 TVs consider splitting the suite
into 2 or more control areas, using a separate phone for each area.
Only the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975 can be used as a local TV control device.
Requires Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM).
Requires Cisco StadiumVision Video Management Services license.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 20 of 83

Although the designated area, such as a luxury suite, can contain multiple Cisco
IP Phones, only one can be used for local TV control.
Only the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975 option allows both the Video Management
Services and Commerce Services (which enables ordering of food and
merchandise) to be run on a single device. Therefore, it is the recommended option
for luxury suites.
Third-party Touch Panel
9B
When using a third-party touch panel for local TV control, keep the following in mind:




Recommended option for bars, restaurants, clubs and large suites (with more
than 9 TVs).
Supported and tested vendors include Crestron and AMX.
Touch panels come in many configurations including wired and wireless.
Requires Cisco StadiumVision Alternate Device Services license.
Several models of Crestron and AMX devices can work with the Cisco
StadiumVision solution. Work with the third-party device integrator to identify which
is appropriate for your implementation.
Custom Local Control Application
10B
SVD includes an API that can be used by a 3rd party application to perform local TV
control. Use of this API is currently restricted, and permission to use is granted on a
case by case basis. Partners and customers interested in leveraging this API should
contact their Cisco account team and provide a brief description of plans and
objectives. Once approved API documentation will be made available.
The intent of this API is to allow customers and partners to develop their own local
control apps for tablets, smart phones, etc. Cisco does not currently offer any apps
beyond the 7975 local control app, which does not use this API. A couple of
reference apps for Android and iOS do exist, and these can be demo‟ed or shared
as part of enabling a customer or partner in this area.
A app using the API must authenticate itself to SVD using a PIN that has been preprovisioned on SVD. The PIN serves to authenticates the app, and also identifies the
luxury suite(s) that it has been authorized to control.
Three distinct PIN types exist:
1. Unique permanent PIN for each suite in order to access and control the
devices within. This PIN type is used for a device that is permanently
assigned to a suite, for example a wall mounted tablet.
2. Temporary PIN for each suite that changes per event script run, can be
displayed on TV. This PIN type is used for temporary devices, for example
suite guests using their personal smart phone for local control. Temporary
PINs can be aged so they expire once an event is over.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 21 of 83
3. Common master PIN for administrative control. This PIN could be used by an
administrator that needs to walk into any suite with a tablet or smart phone in
hand, and control any TV.
SVD offers a number of capabilities for managing PINs, including:
a. Scheduled auto generation of new temporary PINs
b. Export PINs to a file, for use by an installer or for the suite attendants to hand
out to guests.
c. Force the relevant temporary PIN to display on the TVs in a suite, for
consumption by guests in the suites.
The API is best described as a RESTful web service. Functions that can be
performed by an app via the API are listed below.

Physical Placement
Ensure that the controlling device is easily accessible and in a location from which
most, if not all, TVs can be viewed. The recommended placement depends on the
type of area.
Luxury Suites
1B
TVs are typically placed in the kitchenette, in the living room space, and on the
exterior balcony. Depending on the size and physical configuration of the luxury
suite, more or fewer TVs may be installed. When installing TVs, it is recommended
they be placed such that all can be seen from a central location (for control
purposes).
Ensure that the controlling Cisco IP Phone easily accessible and in a location from
which all TVs can be seen. Recommended placement is in or near the middle of the
room, perhaps on a central or side table. If the intended user of the controlling Cisco
IP Phone is an attendant, it may be better to place the phone on a wall.
Other Local Control Areas
12B
For restaurants, the recommendation is to place the third-party control unit near the
bar area. For other locations, such as a press booth or locker room, simply ensure
that the controlling device is easily accessible by the anticipated user and in a
location that allows optimal viewing of the TVs it is intended to control.
IR Remote
13B
For IR remotes, placement of the remote is not a consideration. However, if the IR
remote is used, it must have a clear „line of sight‟ to the Cisco DMP. Because the
Cisco DMPs are typically mounted on the back of the TVs in the Cisco
StadiumVision solution, it is often difficult to obtain a clear line of sight to the DMP. In
such cases the IR extender may be used to achieve line of sight even though the
DMP is hidden. An IR extender is included in the box with every DMP.
Software Requirements
Each option for local control has different software requirements regarding
interaction with licensed components of Cisco StadiumVision.

Implementation Caveats
Keep the following in mind as you design and implement local TV control.




Any designated area requiring local TV control (restaurant, club, bar, back office,
locker room, press box) must be configured as a “Luxury Suite” within Cisco
StadiumVision Director.
When an IP phone is used for as the local control device for a designated area,
it is configured using the “IP Phone” tab of the “Luxury Suite” page.
When a 3rd party device is used for local control, it is configured using the “Local
Control” tab of the “Luxury Suite” page.
SVD recognizes an IP phone by its IP address. Hence the phones IP address
must remain the same. This means the IP address need to be statically


configured, or the DHCP server must be configured to always hand out the
same IP address to a specific phone MAC addresss.
The Cisco StadiumVision service includes pre-defined softkeys. An alternative
set of softkeys is available. See the “Alternative Softkey Mapping” section for
more information.

It requires that all phones are associated to a single user in CUCM.
It requires that the Settings button on the IP Phones be enabled whenever it is
invoked (security risk), this requires a phone reset
It requires that the phone be enabled to “allow end user changing of the
backgrounds”
It requires that the IP Phone be in a specific state at the time of launch or it may
not work (must be on call services display, if left on Directory or Settings it may
not work)
It uses simulated key presses to execute the background change, which is
invasive as each press is visible on the phone as it is being executed
It is not capable of pushing different images to different groups of phones (ie:
stadium background on office phones versus event background on suite
phones), it will either push to all phones at once or one at a time
It is suitable only for a one-time initial bulk deployment but not scalable beyond
that due to the settings changes that would be required on the phones for each
push (enable settings in cucm, push graphic, disable settings- this results in
multiple resets to the phone)
There is no error reporting thus no way of knowing that the background was
applied to a specific phone
As an alternative, you can use a third-party application called VoIP Integration
Background Deployer for bulk background deployment. Further information on this
application is documented in the Cisco IP Phone Background Deployment for Cisco
StadiumVision application note located on Cisco.com.

Configuring Luxury Suite Speed Dials
19B
Within luxury suites, a venue can configure speed dials for the convenience of the
guests. Up to three (3) speed dials can be displayed on the Cisco StadiumVision
Home page. Recommended speed dials include concierge, housekeeping and
security.
Cisco StadiumVision uses the CUCM AXL API to query the CUCM for the phone‟s
speeddial configurations. Cisco StadiumVision then takes the speeddial text label
and pointer and displays it on the Cisco StadiumVision Home page (figure shown
below).
Configuring speed dials for the Cisco StadiumVision solution is a three step process:




Configure the speed dials on the phone within CUCM
o They must be assigned to a button on the phone
o BLF Speeddial buttons will not work, only standard speeddial buttons
Create the Application user in CUCM for Cisco StadiumVision AXL access
Identify the CUCM server to Cisco StadiumVision Director and provide the
CUCM user ID and password
Confirm that the CUCM db schema version configured via the SVD registry
matches that of the CUCM (refer to SVD Configuration section)
The first three speed dials that you configure in CUCM are displayed on the Cisco
StadiumVision service plane, as shown below.
To configure the speed dials within CUCM:
1. Select Device > Phone.
2. Locate and select the appropriate phone.
3. In the Association Information section (on the left), select Add a new SD beside the
desired button.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 34 of 83
4. Enter the phone number and a label (such as Housekeeping or Security).
5. Click Save.
To configure the application user within CUCM:
1. Select User Management > Application User > Add new
2. Configure a username and password
3. Select Add to User group
4. Search for and Select the Standard TabSynch User
5. Save the Application User
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 35 of 83
Note: Cisco StadiumVision Director caches the speeddial information to reduce the
number of requests to CUCM. If a speeddial LABEL is modified on the phone via
CUCM, the SVD Services must be restarted so that the correct speeddial labels are
displayed.
In addition, if the CUCM is integrated with Active Directory, this will not impact the
application user as all application users are local accounts on CUCM.

Loading the Cisco StadiumVision IP Phone Desktop Graphic
20B
To enhance the Cisco StadiumVision user experience, the phone desktop graphic
(or background) should be changed to the graphic that is provided in Cisco
StadiumVision Director.
The recommended desktop graphics and a List.xml file are included in a zip file
located on the Cisco StadiumVision Director server at:
http://<SV_director_ip_addr>:8080//download/cucmitems-<version-build>.zip
First, the graphic must be made available to the phone, which requires that the
graphic be stored on the CUCM server.
1. Download the cucmitems-<version-build>.zip file to your PC.
2. Unzip the file and review the contents, as necessary. The file contains two
directories. Each directory contains a number of files including the background
image, a thumbnail version (80x53) of the image, and a List.xml file.
If you opt to create a separate PNG file, be sure to create a thumbnail version
(80x53) and update the List.xml file. The format of the provided List.xml file is:
<CiscoIPPhoneImageList>
<ImageItem Image="TFTP:Desktops/320x216x16/SV2_BG80x53.png"
URL="TFTP:Desktops/320x216x16/SV2-Phone-background-010.png"/>
</CiscoIPPhoneImageList>
For more information, see the CUCM IP Phone Administration documentation.
You can include up to eight (8) background images in the List.xml file. Make note
of the order in which the images are listed, as you will need to know this when
changing the image using Cisco StadiumVision Director. See the section on
Changing the IP Phone Background.
3. On the Cisco Unified Operating System Administration window, select Software
Updates > TFTP File Management.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 37 of 83
4. On the TFTP File Management page, click the Upload File icon.
5. Browse to select the desired files and upload them to a directory named
/Desktops/320x216x16
Note: The file name and subdirectory parameters are case sensitive. Be sure to use
the forward slash "/" when you specify the subdirectory path.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 38 of 83
6. Use the Cisco StadiumVision Director to specify which background the phone should
use. (See the section on Changing the IP Phone Background.)
As an alternative, you can manually change the desktop graphic on a phone.
On the phone, go to Settings > User Preferences > Background Images. (It
may take a few minutes for all of the images to load.) Press the number that
corresponds to the desired graphic. Select Save, then Exit.
7. To cache the new List.xml file, restart the TFTP server:
a. On the Cisco Unified Serviceability page, select Tools > Control Center –
Feature Services.
b. Select CM Server running the TFTP service, and click Go.
c. Click the radio button next to Cisco TFTP, scroll down and click Restart.
Configure the Background CUCM End User (IP Phone User) for Phone
Background Access via Cisco StadiumVision:
21B
1. For Suite or Public Facing Phones a single end user can be created for phone
backgrounds
2. Administrative and office phones are typically associated to the user who owns
the phone, these pwds typically will not be shared, again a single user can be
created for this (can use same end user for all phones)
3. End Users are created via CUCM in User Management > End User
4. The end user must be assigned to the Standard CCM End Users group
5. The device(s) must be associated to the End User, select the Device Association
button and search for/select all relevant devices

Defining Luxury Suites in Cisco StadiumVision Director
25B
The definition of a luxury suite in Cisco StadiumVision Director includes one or more
DMPs in a designated area and one Cisco IP Phone or third-party control panel for
local control.
Note: Regardless of whether the designated area is a bar, club, restaurant, back
office, press box, or luxury suite, it is defined in Cisco StadiumVision Director using
the “Luxury Suites” tab.

Configuring Basic Information
To define a local control area (suite, bar, restaurant, club, etc.):
1. On the Cisco StadiumVision Control Panel, click Setup.
2. On the Setup page, click Luxury Suites.
3. To add a luxury suite, click on the + (plus sign) at the upper right of the list.
4. On the Intro panel, enter the Name of the luxury suite (or designated area).
Optionally, you can enter a description. Leave the Security Level at 99.
Active determines whether services (such as TV control and ordering) are
available in the suite. This provides a way for the venue to disable services on
the phone during select events (such as preventing guests from changing
channels on the TV during a concert).
TV Guide Autolaunch allows each suite to have a different TV Guide Autolaunch
setting. The default is to use the setting in the registry. If the suite requires a
different value than the registry, set it here.
Refer to the section on Controlling the Behavior of the Channel Guide for details

Assigning DMPs to the Suite
To associate one or more DMPs with a luxury suite, restaurant, club or other
designated area:
1. Click Location Assignment.
2. Select the desired DMPs from the list of Available DMPs. To select more than one
DMP, press the Ctrl key while selecting each DMP. To select a consecutive group of
DMPs, press the Shift key and select the first and last desired DMP in the group.
3. Click the << button. The selected DMPs will be shown in the Assigned DMP list. As
an alternative, you can select and drag the desired DMPs from the Available DMPs
list to the Assigned DMPs list.
The order of the DMPs in the list should reflect the order of the TVs in the local
control area. The number associated with each will be used in the interface of the
local TV control device to identify each TV. To change the order of the DMPs in
the Assigned DMP list, simply select, drag, and drop into the correct position.
Notes:
For luxury suites, the first DMP listed is considered the “designated TV.” This is the
TV on which items are shown when placing an order if commerce integration is
enabled.
To remove a DMP from the Assigned list, select the desired DMP and click the “-“ at
the upper right of the Assigned DMPs box.
4. For each added DMP, click in the field under the Display Label column and enter
the desired label for the TV. The label defaults to the numeric position of DMP in the
list. If the DMP list is re-ordered by using drag and drop, the numeric labels will be
updated automatically. If the labels are edited to be a text label, re-ordering will not
update the label.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 49 of 83
This label will appear in the IP phone UI when a user selects TV/Volume. This
label also appears on the TV when the TV identification banner is displayed.
Note: The identification banner is set in the DMP upon start-up. Therefore,
changing the label requires a DMP flash template restart
5. Click Save.
Notes:

Never assign a DMP/Location to more than one Luxury Suite.

If an IP phone is configured in Cisco StadiumVision director, but not associated
with a Luxury suite, an error message is displayed on the IP phone when the
user attempts to access Cisco StadiumVision services. The text of the error
message is configured in the Cisco StadiumVision Director Management
Dashboard Registry using the “ipPhoneError.SuiteNotFound” parameter. If you
modify the content of the message, ensure that carriage returns (represented by
#) are placed in the appropriate places for the message to display correctly on
the IP phone.
Adding a Local Control Device
To associate a local control device with a luxury suite, restaurant, club or other
designated area:
1. Click Phone and Remote.
2. Select the desired phone or 3rd party remote (as previously defined in the section on
Defining Local TV Control Devices.).
3. Click Save.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 50 of 83
Each IP phone or 3rd party device can be assigned to only one “luxury suite” (i.e.
local control area). If the selected IP phone or 3rd party remote is already assigned to
another luxury suite, Cisco StadiumVision Director will display a message prompting
you to indicate whether you want to remove the device from the other luxury suite
and re-assign it to this one.
Providing a Welcome Message on a Luxury Suite TV
26B
Typically, a single TV in the luxury suite will initially display a welcome message.
Cisco StadiumVision director provides two example welcome message graphics
(shown in Example Welcome Message) in Adobe Photoshop format.

Welcome_SV2-1920 is for use with the DMP 4310.
Refer to the Content Creation Guidelines document for details
Figure 11. Example Welcome Message
At a high-level, the steps to implement a welcome message on a specific TV in a
luxury suite are as follows. For details on how to load content and create groups and
playlists, refer to the appropriate Cisco StadiumVision Feature Guides.
1. Open the supplied graphic in Adobe PhotoShop. Make modifications (as needed)
and save the file as a JPEG.
2. Upload the JPEG into the Cisco StadiumVision Director content repository.
3. Place the DMPs associated with the welcome TVs in the desired luxury suites
(typically one per suite) into a separate group.
4. Create a playlist using a full-screen graphic template and add the welcome message
graphic to the playlist.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 51 of 83
Note: The template used for the Welcome message must be the Full-Screen
Graphic template. Do not use an Overlay template.
5. Associate the playlist with the group (created in step 3) as part of a pre-game state.
The welcome message will be displayed on the specified TV during the pre-game
state until either the luxury suite guest changes the channel or there is a state
change (from pre-game to in-game, for example).
Defining Channel Lineup (Guide)
27B
The channels that make up the channel lineup for the entire venue are defined on
the Channels panel of the Cisco StadiumVision Director Setup page. The process for
defining the master channel list and creating the default channel guide is described
in the Cisco StadiumVision Content and Event Management Design and
Implementation Guide.
Leveraging the venue-wide master channel list, you can create per-area channel
guides, which can be assigned to one or more luxury suites. The per-area channel
guides are a subset of the master channel list, meaning the channels numbers and
descriptions are preserved. If a DMP is not associated with a luxury suite, bar,
restaurant, or other area that supports local control, then it will use the default
channel guide.
Note: If you make changes to a channel guide that is associated with an area
serviced by a third-party touch panel, the third-party device must reload the latest
channel guide information. Consult the third-party device integrator (AMX or
Crestron) for reload options.
To create a per-area channel guide and assign it to the desired luxury suites (after
the master channel list has been created):
1. On the Cisco StadiumVision Control Panel, click Setup.
2. On the Setup page, click Channels and click the Channel Guide tab.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 52 of 83
3. To add a channel guide, click on the + (plus sign) at the upper right of the list.
4. Specify the Channel Guide Name.
5. Click Assign Channel. The master channel list is displayed.
6. Select the desired Channels from the list. To select more than one Channel, press
the Ctrl key while selecting each Channel. To select a consecutive group of
Channels, press the Shift key and select the first and last desired Channel.
7. Click Add.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 53 of 83
8. Click Assign (under the “Used in Suites” list. The list of configured Luxury Suites is
displayed.
9. Select the desired Suites from the list. To select more than one Suite, press the Ctrl
key while selecting each Suite. To select a consecutive group of Suite, press the
Shift key and select the first and last desired Suite.
10. Click Add.
By default, when the channel guide is brought up on the IP Phone, it is also
displayed on the selected TV(s). You can change this behavior by setting the
“tvguide.autolaunch” parameter to 0 in the Cisco StadiumVision Director
Management Dashboard Registry.
Using “Favorites” (Third-Party Touch Panels Only)
In addition to the channel lineup, a maximum of 10 channels can be identified as
favorites, which appear on the initial video control page of the third-party touch
panels.
For each channel that should be listed as a favorite:


In the Favorite field, select Yes.
In the Favorite Order field, enter a number (between 1 and 10) indicating the
ordinal placement of this channel in the listing,
Work with the third-party device integrator to determine how the favorites list should
be displayed on the third-party touch panels. All installations should move to access
channels directly versus indirectly through the favorites mechanism.

Controlling the Behavior of the Channel Guide
28B
The appearance and behavior of the channel guide are controlled by parameters in
the Cisco StadiumVision registry.
The registry settings are as follows:

tvGuide.ChannelSelectFullScreen
This parameter controls whether the selected channel is displayed in full-screen
mode. The default is tvGuide.ChannelSelect FullScreen = 1.
If the tvGuide.ChannelSelectFullScreen = 1 and the guide is displayed on the
TV, then when a user selects a channel, the selected channel is displayed in
full-screen mode on the TV.
If the tvGuide.ChannelSelectFullScreen = 0 and the guide is displayed on the
TV, then when a user selects a channel, the guide preview window will change
but the user must navigate away from the channel select page (by moving to the
Home Page, Display Select Page, Exit, etc.) for the selected channel to be
displayed in full-screen mode on the TV.

tvguide.autolaunch
This parameter controls whether the channel guide is automatically displayed on
the TV when the display is selected. The default is tvguide.autolaunch = 1. (This
will change in subsequent releases.)
If tvguide.autolaunch = 0, do not automatically display the guide.
If tvguide.autolaunch = 1, automatically display the guide.
NOTE: This parameter can be overridden for an individual suite at the Luxury
Suite Basic Info panel in the Control Panel.

phoneControl.stayOnChannelSelect
This parameter controls whether the IP Phone continues to show the channel
guide after the user has made their selection. The default is
phoneControl.stayOnChannelSelect = 1. This registry parameter must be
added.
If the phoneControl.stayOnChannelSelect = 0, the IP Phone will go back to
previous page after the user selects a channel.
If the phoneControl.stayOnChannelSelect = 1, the IP Phone will continue to
display the channel guide after the user selects a channel.

application. Check the Apache logs to confirm that this results in an http GET
message being received by SVD:
[[email protected] httpd]# pwd
/var/log/httpd
[[email protected] httpd]# grep 10.10.99.3 access_log
10.10.99.3 - - [31/Oct/2011:17:27:19 -0600] "GET

mePage.png HTTP/1.1" 200 15606 "-" "Allegro-Software-WebClient/4.34"
Step 2: Check sv_external.log to see the requests that have been received from the
phone and processed. Log snippet below reflects the following sequence of buttons
being pressed on the phone:
1. Service button pressed. Bring up SV main menu – ListServices
2. TV/Volume key pressed. Bring up display selection screen – DisplaySelect
3. TV/DMP with IP addr 10.10.99.29 selected. Display channel guide – Device
4. Channel 3 selected. Channel
5. Volume down key pressed. VolumeDown
6. Screen returns to main SV menu after timeout – ListServices

Step 3: In the previous step notice how each log message in sv_external.log
contains an 8 digit log message ID immediately following the phone IP address. This
ID can be used to find related messages in the other log files in the same directory.
In the following example log messages with ID f2eecb6f can be found in 5 different
log files. Notice how the timestamps are within one second of each other,
emphasizing that they are all part of the same transaction:
[[email protected] logs]$ grep f2eecb6f * | cut -c1-80

sv_phone_xml.log:2011-10-31 17:17:27,107 [TP-Processor6] f2eecb6f DEBUG
svlog.ph
Step 4: Check the sv_phone_xml.log to perform a sanity check of the XML returned
to the phone. The XML in the example below corresponds to the be0d5d69 entry in
sv_external.log in step 2 above. That is display the channel guide. The XML below
describes two channels (KGO-HD and LIVEWELL HD) and for each defines the X,Y
touch area and the channel change URL that is fired when touched.
The format of the XML is documented at:

Step 5: The sv_msg_trace.log file contains log messages for all communication
between SVD and the DMPs being controlled. The example below corresponds to
the channel change in step 2 (log message ID 80ecc133). The channel change
button press on the phone results in 3 commands being sent to the DMP with IP
address 10.10.99.29 as follows:
1. setKeyCode: Sends IR key code 158 to the DMP
2. setVideoChannel: Sets the video channel to udp://239.200.0.103:4000
3. setDisplayBanner: Activates the display banner for 5000 msec.

There was a state change and
the script for this event did not
specify No change for the
channel.
If this is not the desired action, go to the script for this
or subsequent events and set the action to “No
Change” for the channel on this display.
A configuration error in Cisco
StadiumVision defines a
controller outside of this suite as
the suite controller.
Correct the configuration so that only the controller in
