13.15 Assigning an Engine to a Channel with Redundancy (v.5.x)

You must unlock the Just Control Configuration window and stop the channel(s) first to perform any changes.

Assigning an Engine to a Channel using 2N Redundancy

It is possible to assign a Just Out engine as the redundant engine using the “2N” setup. In this configuration, each Channel has a Primary engine and a dedicated Redundant engine assigned to it, where both Just Out engines are playing out the same content at the same time.

  1. Go to the “Advanced” tab.

  2. Activate the “Redundancy” checkbox.

  3. Select “Full (2N)”.

     

  4. Go to the “Layers & Engines” tab.

  5. On the right side, look for the column named “Redundant just:out Engine”.

  6. Click on “Select Engine…” under the “Redundant just:out Engine” tab and choose the Just Out engine you would like to assign to this Layer.

  7. Repeat this for each Layer that has no Just Out engine assigned.

Because you selected “Full (2N)” as redundancy type, you can assign the same Just Out engine to a Channel only once.

Assigning an Engine to a Channel using N+1 Redundancy

It is possible to assign the same Just Out engine to several Channels as the Redundant Engine using the “N+1” setup. In such configurations, various Channels share the same Redundant Just Out engine (cost-effective). This implies that only one Primary Just Out engine can fail at a time.

  1. Go to the “Advanced” tab.

  2. Activate the “Redundancy” checkbox.

  3. Select “Flexible (N+1)”.

     

  4. Go to the “Layers & Engines” tab.

  5. On the right side, look for the column named “Redundant just:out Engine”.

  6. Click on “Select Engine…” under the “Redundant just:out Engine” tab and choose the Just Out engine you would like to assign to this Layer.

  7. Repeat this for each Layer that has no Just Out engine assigned.

Because you selected “N+1” as redundancy type, you can assign the same Just Out engine to several Channels (using “N+1” redundancy) as the Redundant Just Out engine.
