Chapter 1 Overview
StadiumVision is a proven, end-to-end, high-definition IPTV solution that provides
advanced video content management and delivery. It is a centrally-managed, 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.
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.
StadiumVision comprises four major components, as shown in Figure 1:




Video acquisition (or video head end)
Converged voice, video, and data high-speed IP network
Video delivery (and signage playback)
Centralized management and operations
Figure 1.
StadiumVision Major Components
As part of the management and operations, 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 76
Local TV Control
Typically, TVs that are placed throughout the concourses and in “public” spaces are
controlled centrally through 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 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
As shown in Figure 3, 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 76
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 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 76
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 StadiumVision.
The phone uses Cisco Unified Applications Environment (CUAE), StadiumVision
Director, and StadiumVision Director Video Management Services 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 StadiumVision Services page be configured
as the default page. 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 call services page remains the default and “speed dial” 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 works with StadiumVision Director, StadiumVision Director
Video Management Services, and StadiumVision Alternate Device Services 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 StadiumVision Director to provide instructions to the DMP for
TV on/off, volume control, and channel selection.

Page 11 of 76
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 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 StadiumVision
design, each luxury suite typically contains the following:


Three (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 (or more) Cisco IP Phones, each associated with a Cisco Unified
CallManager. One of the Cisco IP Phones (with a touch screen) is designated as
the controlling phone preferably situated to view all TV positions.
Figure 4 shows an example of a luxury suite.
Figure 4.

Local TV Control in Luxury Suites
As mentioned previously, in 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 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 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. See the Cisco StadiumVision
Commerce Integration Design and Implementation Guide for more information.
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.
Welcome Display in a Luxury Suite
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 76
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
Using the 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.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 14 of 76
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.
For more information about customizing a luxury suite, see the Cisco StadiumVision
Venue Customization and Transformation Best Practices.
Required Applications and Services
There are several applications and services that play a role in enabling the local
control. Some are part of the StadiumVision family of software, others are standard
Cisco offerings.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 15 of 76

StadiumVision Director (Base License)
Generally speaking, 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. StadiumVision Director is also used to define the channel
lineup for the venue.
With respect to local TV control, 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, 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
StadiumVision Director.
Regarding channel selection, StadiumVision Director also contains the
definitions of each individual channel and the channel lineup.
- Each video stream received from the StadiumVision head end 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.

StadiumVision Director Luxury Suite Applications: Video Management Services
This is an optional set of 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.

StadiumVision Director Alternate Device Services
This is optional set of StadiumVision Director licensed services that allows thirdparty 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 is an enterprise-class IP telephony call-processing system that provides
traditional telephony features, such as speed dials, as well as advanced
capabilities.

Cisco Unified Applications Environment
CUAE is part of the Cisco Unified Communications family of products and
provides an intelligent interface to CUCM that enables communication between
custom-developed applications (such as StadiumVision Director Video
Management Services) and the Cisco Unified IP Phone. It is required if a Cisco
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 16 of 76
IP Phone is used for local TV control and interacts with the Video Management
Services component of StadiumVision Director.
Generally speaking, the CUAE Server abstracts the complexity of telephony
protocols, separates application logic from core call routing to protect CUCM
and provides a standard way to manage all of an organization's unified
communications phone applications. In the StadiumVision solution, CUAE works
with CUCM to set up the phone environment and enable the phone to run the
local TV control. For StadiumVision 2.3, CUAE 8.5 is also supported.
Process Flows
This section provides an overview of the flow of the local TV control processes.
Local TV Control via a Cisco IP Phone
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
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 17 of 76
To enable the TV control process:




The channel guide and associated icons are defined in StadiumVision Director.
The underlying commands used by the DMP to change the channel, input, and
volume are configured in StadiumVision Director.
The images that make up the phone UI (except the icons) are stored in CUAE.
The IP Phone is subscribed to the 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 StadiumVision
Director.
2. The StadiumVision Director sends HTTP requests to CUAE to obtain the XML
(content and pointers) for the local TV control device.
3. The StadiumVision Director sends the XML information to the IP phone to update
the touch-screen content.
4. The 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
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 76
To enable the TV control process:


The channel guide is defined in StadiumVision Director.
The underlying commands used by the DMP to change the channel, input, and
volume are configured in 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 StadiumVision
Director.
2. The StadiumVision Director server sends the XML information to the touch panel
to update the touch panel content.
3. The 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
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 6.
Selecting the Appropriate Local TV Control Device
Quantity of TVs
Example of Location
Recommended Device
1
Press box, back office
IR remote or Cisco IP Phone
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
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.
Requires StadiumVision Alternate Device Services license.
Cisco IP Phone
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
competitor‟s VoIP solution (such as Avaya) in the luxury suites, use a third-party
touch panel for local control.
Can control up to 29 TVs, but recommendation is for up to 9.
Only the Cisco Unified IP Phone 7975 can be used as a local TV control device.
Requires CUCM and CUAE.
Requires StadiumVision Video Management Services license.
Although the designated area, such as a luxury suite, can contain multiple Cisco
IP Phones, only one can be used for local TV control.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 20 of 76
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
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 StadiumVision Alternate Device Services license.
Several models of Crestron and AMX devices can work with the StadiumVision
solution. Work with the third-party device integrator to identify which is appropriate
for your implementation.
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
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
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.

Page 21 of 76
IR Remote
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 StadiumVision
solution, it is often difficult to obtain a clear line of sight to the DMP. Therefore, the IR
remote is not generally recommended for local TV control.
Software Requirements
Each option for local control has different software requirements regarding
interaction with licensed components of 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
StadiumVision Director.
The local control device for a designated area, regardless of whether it is a
Cisco IP Phone or a third-party touch panel, is configured using the “IP Phone”
tab of the “Luxury Suite” page.
The StadiumVision service includes pre-defined softkeys. An alternative set of
softkeys is available. See “Chapter 5 Alternative Softkey Mapping” for more
information.

Note on Changing the Phone Background
Stadium Vision Director includes the ability to deploy IP Phone Backgrounds.
However, this method of deployment is not recommended for the following reasons:





It requires that all phones are associated to a user in CUCM.
It requires that the Settings button on the IP Phones be enabled (security risk).
It requires that the IP Phone be in a speciUic state at the time of launch or it will
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 (screen
changes, etc).
Each time it is executed, it stores a copy of the image on the phone, even if the
same image was already pushed. We are unaware of the limit or behavior once
the limit is exhausted.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 26 of 76

It uses an IP Phone object “Background” which is undocumented and not TAC
supported. This object can become obsolete at any time without notification. It is
based on IP Phone firmware which changes frequently.
For these reasons it is suitable only for a one‐time initial bulk deployment and should
not be used beyond that.
As an alternative, you can use a third-party application called VoIP Integration
Background Deployer. The process for using this application is documented in the
“IP Phone Background Deployment” application note located on Sharepoint.

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

DMP in the list. If the DMP list is re-ordered by using drag and drop, the numeric
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 45 of 76
labels will be updated automatically. If the labels are edited to be a text label, reordering will not update the label.
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 boot-up. Therefore,
changing the label requires a restart of the DMP to take effect.
5. Click Save.
Notes:

It is recommended that you avoid assigning a DMP to multiple Luxury Suites. If
a DMP is assigned to more than one Luxury Suite, it will use the Per-Area
Channel Guide associated with the last Luxury Suite to which it was assigned.
For example if a DMP is added to Suite 1 and then added to Suite 2, it will use
the Channel Guide defined for Suite 2.

If an IP phone is configured in StadiumVision director, but not associated with an
Luxury suite, an error message is displayed on the IP phone when the user
attempts to access StadiumVision services. The text of the error message is
configured in the 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 IP Phone.
Note: Regardless of whether a Cisco IP Phone or 3 rd party device will be used
for local TV control, it must be identified logically as a phone on the IP Phone
panel.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 46 of 76
2. Select the desired phone or 3 rd party remote (as previously defined in the section
on Error! Reference source not found.).
3. Click Save. (You may need to scroll down to see the Save button.)
Each IP phone or 3 rd 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, StadiumVision Director will display a message prompting you to
indicate whether you want to remove the device from the other luxury suite and reassign it to this one.
Providing a Welcome Message on a Luxury Suite TV
Typically, a single TV in the luxury suite will initially display a welcome message.
StadiumVision director provides two example welcome message graphics (shown in
Example Welcome Message) in Adobe Photoshop format.

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, see the StadiumVision Content and Event Management Design and
Implementation Guide.
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 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.
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).
Note: For information about customizing the welcome message to include a logo,
see StadiumVision Venue Customization and Transformation Best Practices.

Defining Channel Lineup (Guide)
The channels that make up the channel lineup for the entire venue are defined on
the Channels panel of the StadiumVision Director Setup page. The process for
defining the master channel list and creating the default channel guide is described
in the 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.
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.
8. Click Assign (under the “Used in Suites” list. The list of configured Luxury Suites
is displayed.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 50 of 76
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 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.
Note: This feature will be removed in a future release.
Controlling the Behavior of the Channel Guide
The appearance and behavior of the channel guide are controlled by parameters in
the 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.
© 2011 Cisco Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
Page 51 of 76

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.
The following table indicates how the settings for these three parameters interact to
produce a specific behavior.

Chapter 7 Reference
This chapter provides an overview of the components, both hardware and software,
that are required in addition to StadiumVision Director to enable local TV control.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Cisco Unified Communications Manager is an enterprise-class IP telephony callprocessing system that provides traditional telephony features as well as advanced
capabilities, such as mobility, presence, preference, and rich conferencing services.
