Abstract
(EN)
A domain manager configured to manage and/or configure an audio-video (AV) system but not directly participate in networked media transmission or clock synchronization. The domain manager may include a database; an endpoint manager configured to communicate with the database, the endpoint manager being configured to setup and maintain secure connections to and from media devices and controllers; and at least one management module configured to communicate with the database and provide services to the media devices and controllers. In embodiments, the at least one management module may include at least one of a manager for managing credentials and grouping devices into domains, a device directory for managing device registrations and lookup, and an access controller for managing and/or evaluating access control policy.

(FR)
La présente invention concerne un gestionnaire de domaine configuré pour gérer et/ou configurer un système audio-vidéo (AV) mais ne participant pas directement à une transmission multimédia en réseau ou à une synchronisation d'horloge. Le gestionnaire de domaine peut comprendre une base de données ; un gestionnaire de point d'extrémité configuré pour communiquer avec la base de données, le gestionnaire de point d'extrémité étant configuré pour établir et maintenir des connexions sécurisées à partir de dispositifs multimédias et de contrôleurs et vers ces derniers ; et au moins un module de gestion configuré pour communiquer avec la base de données et fournir des services aux dispositifs multimédias et aux contrôleurs. Dans des modes de réalisation, le ou les modules de gestion peuvent comprendre au moins un gestionnaire pour gérer des justificatifs d'identité et regrouper des dispositifs en domaines, un répertoire de dispositif pour gérer les enregistrements et la consultation du dispositif, et un contrôleur d'accès pour gérer et/ou évaluer une politique de contrôle des accès.
