The summer cinema season is almost over here in Europe and there has been time to review an experience with NeoDCP Player by some of our cinema customers. We have collected some most useful change requests and the result is here. NeoDCP Player v2.62 was just released with following release notes:
- Redesigned the KDM browser window
- Redesigned the DCP inspect window
- Minor correction to the KDM sorting algorithm
- Increased highlighting for the currently playing title within a playlist
- It should not be allowed to create DCP repositories in folders that are not empty
What exactly has changed in NeoDCP Player v2.62?
Redesigned the KDM browser window
You were not able to see the validity periods on the first sight. You needed to click the buttons, analyse, …
It was not an issue if you have few KDMs in your database. However in cinemas you receive many KDMs and after some time you just would like to see it more clearly.
Now you can clearly see if your KDM is valid when the validity starts and after what date/time the KDM is not valid anymore. The icon displays as green if everything is ok, but gets orange or even red if there is some issue.
The most important, you don’t need to click to see each KDM parameters. Everything is visible on the first sight. Of course, those who still need more info can always click.
Redesigned DCP inspect window
The DCP inspect was just perfect.
However there were still several things that could be done better 😉 .
Now, in one window everything is even more visible, clearly aligned and comprehensive.
Increased highlighting for the currently playing title within a playlist
We were informed that inside the cinema booth it was not very apparent which playlist item was currently playing. Therefore we have changed colors to make it more clear.
It is always very useful for features development if you let us know about everything that can make your life easier. As our customers you have a direct contact to our team. Don’t hesitate, contact us. We are always glad to hear from you.
