Alpha FX Setup

As integrated with the Command 360 platform, Alpha FX video processors provide processing, rendering, IP encoding/decoding, media playback and content management. The Alpha FX setup is performed directly within the Command 360 platform through a guided wizard.

To set up a resource appliance:

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to your organization's Command 360 machine URL: [].

    A summary page for the Command 360 Resource Appliance appears to recap the following:

  3. If any of the information needs changed or corrected, click Back to the appropriate page; otherwise, click Finish.

Once the Alpha FX setup is complete, the system finalizes the process.

Upon completion, the Command 360 Site Login page automatically launches. Once the user is logged in, a new Join Request appears on the site landing page. The Admin User can now approve the action requested in step 6 above, allowing the Alpha FX to join the appropriate Resource Appliance.

This completes addition of an Alpha FX as a Resource Appliance.
