DMM Publishing

Unanswered Question
May 12th, 2008

Still pretty new at this, but have been unable to locate a difinitive answer regarding two DMM questions so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

#1 Since Cisco no longer supports MMS for distributing via ACNS to push the content to the CEs, what are people publishing to ensure that the Flash, Windows Media, or MPEG4 links match what goes out via ACNS? Are we suppose to utilize UNC? Is HTTP an option?

#2 Does the DMM program video link (Flash, Windows Media, or MPEG4) have to match whats pushed out to all the CEs at the remote locations via ACNS?

Thanks again to anyone who might have any idea on this.

I would like to help you but, I am not sure if I completely understand what you are asking in the big sense. I am assuming you have a corporate internal deployment of DMS with ACNS deployed also. Are you referencing the video portal or the Digital signage end point?

Short answers:

#1 Try HTTP

#2 Yes

In the Digital signage application Windows media is not supported in the DMP. You need to thing MPEG2 TS.

Then H.264 for when the DMP4400 comes out this summer.

There are definite ways to easily manage your content and not impact network traffic.

For an internal network deployment of the Video Portal you will definitely need ACNS to manage the content across your WAN

For Digital Signage Think of centralizing the graphics and HTML files on a central web server and having the applications only reference the large files and video from the CE's with ACNS or the SDs on each DMP. That way you only have to manage the applications in one location and all you are transfering through ACNS to your CE's is the MPEG2 video. ( or FTPing videos to the DMPs ) in the late nite time frame.
