I want to display localized fonts on the DMP browser. I went through the DMS compatibility document at this link http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/video/digital_media_systems/dms_compat.html and found that I can use the font face (Univers OTS). I created a new HTML document using that font face and tested it. In my test, I hosted the HTML file under IIS and instructed the DMP to go to URL.
However, the result was a series of question marks like this: ?????????? showing on the DMP. What is even stranger, if I open the HTML file afterwards and look at the code, I find it too changed to the series of question marks.
I am using a DMP4300G with firmware v5.1.
I appreciate any help with that ASAP.
I just noticed that you are using a DMP-4300G.
According to the Compatibility Chart the Arabic Univers OTS is only supported
on the DMP-4400G.
DMS 5.0 on the DMP-4400G introduced additional default Fonts for this DMP
only. These are;
- Latin: Albany, regular weight, WGL character set
- Latin: Verdana, regular weight, WGL character set
- Traditional Chinese: MHei medium weight, MS Code Page 950
- Simplified Chinese: MHei medium weight, GB18030 character set
- Japanese: Hei Sei Square Gothic, MS Code Page 932
- Arabic: Univers OTS
These fonts are used when the DMP-4400G is used to render a webpage that has
these fonts used.
Do the memory differences with the DMP-4305G & DMP-4300G, it does not
have these additional default fonts. Specifically, any language represented by a
double byte or higher character set is not supported natively on the DMP. This
means that anything outside of the Unicode range of U+0000 to U+007F will
not display correctly.
