Connecting to CORIOgrapher™ and choosing network settings

    Make sure you have a video wall set up that includes at least one window that uses a source from the Streaming media and 4K playback input module, and select Take.

  2. OPTIONAL: if you only want to play media from a USB drive, you don't need to do this step.

    If you want to stream media over IP, choose network settings for your Streaming media and 4K playback input module.

    Select > Module Configuration.

    Find the Streaming media and 4K playback module that you want to set up, and select > Configure.

    If you choose DHCP, the network assigns you an IP address.

    If you choose a static IP address:

    • Enter a value for your IP address and subnet mask.
    • If you want to stream from the internet, enter a value for your gateway.
    • If you want to refer to a source by name, enter a value for DNS.

    Static IP address
    If you choose a static IP address, make sure you enter a unique value for your IP address. Using the same IP address for multiple devices can cause your devices to disconnect.

    If you need help with network settings, contact your network administrator.

Setting up the internal drive

You can save media items from your USB drive to the internal drive.

When you first set up your internal drive, it is useful to copy the entire contents of your USB drive to the internal drive. All your media items and folders are copied exactly to the internal drive, for pathways up to 480 characters, or fewer, depending on the language you use.

Unsupported items are also copied to the internal drive. You can't see these items but they still take up space. Check that your USB drive contains only supported items before you start.
See a list of supported items

  • Select (USB Drive) > Replace all items on the internal drive.
