Assigning segments to assets

  • If GV STRATUS security is enforced, your credentials must give you full read and write permissions on bins, assets, and segments. You can only view segments with read permission, and modify segments with write permission.
  • Create Segment and Update Segment permissions must be set to Allow, for you to create and update segments.

You can assign segments to an asset in the Segmentation panel. Segments are created in the Source Viewer panel by marking in and out specific part of the asset.

  1. Drag the selected asset from Asset List into the Source Viewer in the Segmentation panel.
  2. If the logging controls are not shown, click the Show/Hide Control Tray button to show the controls, then the drop-down arrow at the right of the control tray and Add/Remove buttons if necessary.
  3. Navigate to the starting point and click the Mark In button. ( I)
  4. Determine the end-point of your segment and click the Mark Out button. ( O)
  5. Click on the asset in the Source Viewer, then drag and drop the segment into the Segmentation panel. (Alt + Ctrl + Insert)

    The segment adds into the Segmentation panel.

  6. Repeat above steps to add more segments of the asset into the Segmentation panel.

    The index number increases whenever a segment is added or duplicated.

    Note: Without Create Segment and Update Segment permissions, segments cannot be rearranged or dragged and dropped in the same Segmentation panel, or from one panel to another.

You can also create various segment lengths of an asset in multiple segmentation panels for different broadcast times. For example, a program that is scheduled for prime time has more commercial slots compared to the repeat of the same program at a later time. Therefore, several kinds of segments in multiple segmentation panels can be created for the same asset.
