How to Configure the default image duration on a DMP

​​​​Question

  • How do I configure a DMP so that it applies a def​​ault duration to static image files.
  • Scheduled image files will still play for the duration specified in the schedule generated by the control system. e.g. VCS

Environment

  • Product Family: Software; Control Systems
  • Product:
  • Components: DMP-8000/ DMP-5000 Versions 7.32+

Playing image files (jpg/png/etc) directly on the DMP. Not using Content Studio (hold times can be set if imported) or VCS (hold times configured in VCS Display)
