About Configuring Render Nodes for WebCC Servers

In order to be able to generate small preview movies that can be played in a web browser for the scenes on your Harmony database, the render nodes for your Harmony database must have the Cisco OpenH264 library installed.

Because of copyright restrictions, this library is not installed automatically with Harmony. It must be downloaded off the Cisco server as it is installed. However, regardless of the platform on which you are installing WebCC, a configuration tool is provide to automate the procedure.

  • The Cisco OpenH264 library must be installed on each machine on your database server's local network that will be configured to render scenes for your database.
  • Installing the Cisco OpenH264 library requires an Internet connection.
  • Further steps are required in order for a machine to be configured to render preview movies. See About Batch Processing.
