System-Detected Assets

System-detected assets are associated with physical input devices connected directly to the system. In the Command 360 interface, these appear as either "Input" asset type (cable tuners, Blu-Ray players, Apple TV, etc.), "Browser" types (CineAgent), or "CineLink Stream" ( encoders ).

  • Input assets are c reated by the system when the first video card is configured on an Alpha FX. The number that appears in the Asset Manager is based on the number of inputs detected in the hardware. 

  • The CineAgent asset appears as Browser #, with a number of instances sequentially numbered based on how many screens were set during configuration.

  • CineLink assets appear in the Asset Manager according to the number of outputs (2 or 4) when a CineLink is joined to a resource manager.


Clicking the

 icon on a system-detected asset opens a pop-up menu with options to view asset properties, edit the asset, manage links to the asset, and add the asset to rooms or activities, as shown in the image below:
