Title (EN) CONTROLLING MULTI-SITE MEDIA PLAYBACK SYSTEMS
(FR) COMMANDE DE SYSTÈMES DE LECTURE MULTIMÉDIA MULTI-SITE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for controlling multi-site media playback systems include, among other features, a computing system (i) receiving, from a first media playback device connected to a first network, a first registration message, (ii) in response to receiving the first registration message, assigning a system identifier and a first subsystem identifier to the first media playback device, (iii) receiving, from a second media playback device connected to the first network, a second registration message, (iv) in response to receiving the second registration message, assigning the system identifier and the first subsystem identifier to the second media playback device, (v) determining that the second media playback device is disconnected from the first network and connected to a second network, and (vi) in response to determining that the second media playback device is connected to the second network, assigning a second subsystem identifier to the second media playback device.
(FR) L’invention ‌concerne‌ ‌des systèmes et des procédés de commande de systèmes de lecture multimédia multi-site qui comprennent, entre autres caractéristiques, un système informatique qui (i) reçoit, en provenance d'un premier dispositif de lecture multimédia connecté à un premier réseau, un premier message d'enregistrement, (ii) en réponse à la réception du premier message d'enregistrement, attribue un identifiant de système et un premier identifiant de sous-système au premier dispositif de lecture multimédia, (iii) reçoit, en provenance d'un second dispositif de lecture multimédia connecté au premier réseau, un second message d'enregistrement, (iv) en réponse à la réception du second message d'enregistrement, attribue l'identifiant de système et le premier identifiant de sous-système au second dispositif de lecture multimédia, (v) détermine que le second dispositif de lecture multimédia est déconnecté du premier réseau et connecté à un second réseau, et (vi) en réponse à la détermination du fait que le second dispositif de lecture multimédia est connecté au second réseau, attribue un second identifiant de sous-système au second dispositif de lecture multimédia.
