Cortex Player configuration features
We’ve released new features that allow you to have more control and flexibility over configuring your Cortex devices from Fleet. These features were released with version 3.1.4 of Fleet and version 2.14.7 of the Player.
Flags are used to make adjustments to player and application functionality, such as disabling transitions or adjusting the size and position of your player window. Previously Cortex Player flags had to be set as a flags file in your player’s local directory. Now you can set flags at the network or device level from your Fleet dashboard.
We released a new flag that allows you to rotate a device screen 90, 180, or 270 degrees for ChromeOS and WeboS devices.
Remotely turn on/off screens
You can control which hours of the day you want to turn on/off your screens using our new Display Operation Schedule feature. This will prevent ad requests during those hours and also allow you to extend the life of your LED pixels.
We now support gapless transitions on all operating systems. Our previous transition included a fade to black between applications and pieces of content.
Our new transition can be configured to have a fade or no fade transition. The default behavior is the fade transition, this can be disabled to force a no fade transition by editing the player flags.
