Info.png Read more: DISE Server destinations


A descriptive name for the destination, for example "Stockholm Store".

Display scheme name

By default, the display scheme will have the same name as the player, so given the example above the display scheme created would be called "Stockholm Store.displayscheme", but here you can change this.

Content distribution method The distribution method depends on how your players are located. If all are on the same domain or network, the shared network directory option can be selected.

  • Local path or Shared network directory
The content is put on a shared folder in the network.
  • FTP
The content is put on a FTP server.

FTP Server

The IP or hostname address to the FTP server to upload to.


The FTP port to used. The default is port 21.


The username to authenticate. If you will be using shared folders and are member of a domain, the username should be in the form DOMAIN\USER.


The password for the user.

Destination FTP Directory

Specify a directory on the FTP server to upload to. This is recommended if you don't have FTP users with different home directories on the server.

Destination path

Specify a shared folder path to upload to.

Proxy Setup

Proxy server

If your connection requires the use of a proxy server, enter the adress to the server.

Proxy Port

The port of the proxy server to use for outwards connections.

FTP Settings

Connection type

Specifies whether to use security. This is provided the server offers security measures. The supported protocols are SSL, TLS and TLS Implicit.

FTP connection mode

Active or passive FTP mode.

SSL Certificate override

If the server offers security, DISE Probe will use it. This option gives you the option to specify a certain security certicate to use, if the server requires it. In this case you will need to enter a certificate file, a private key file, and a pass phrase.

File options tab


Automatically delete files that are no longer used

You have the option to let Bridge check for outdated files. This is done at the same time as the destination is sent out. Only files that are no longer referenced in any of the DISE Movies in the destinations will ever be removed. You specify a number of days which the files will be left on the server after they are not referenced.

Send font files

The default is that font files are sent out with the destination, but sometimes licenses prevents fonts to be distributed.

Encode unicode filenames

Some FTP servers do not support unicode filenames. Checking this option will encode the filenames so they can be put on the server.


The options affect how fonts are handled on the player.
You can choose to not display text lacking font whatsoever, guess what font to use or specify a specific common font to use.

Players tab



Add a player to the destination. See below under Edit.


Remove the current player from the destination.


The player name, for instance, "Conference Room 1"
Display Scheme Name
By default, the display scheme will have the same name as the player, so given the example above the display scheme created would be called "Conference Room 1.displayscheme", but here you can change this.
Screen from Screen Definition file
In DISE NoBorders, screen definitions define the position and size of display areas in your presentation. Screen definitions are saved as a .screendef file which is by default located in the System\Screen definitions directory in your DISEContent.


Import a comma-separated file with names of players.


Export the current players in the destination to a comma-separated file.

Groups tab



Add a player to the destination. See below under Edit.


Delete a previously created group. Note that this will not affect players currently in the group.

Music Player tab


In this tab you may specify a DISE Ambience playlist to be used. The playlist will play independently of other content in the destination.

Use the music player

Lets you specify a .diseambience file to use. All files referenced in the playlist will be sent out along with other content in the destination.

Advanced tab


Specify size

Force the player to use a specific display size, regardless of its own settings. This is useful if you want to have multiple channels on different parts of the display.

Use screen definition file for screen positions

When creating DISE NoBorders content, you create a screen definition which defines where the screens will be placed. We need then specify which player will play which screen content.

Playback visible schedule

Lets you centrally control the playback schedule of the entire destination.
