    • Location-based filtering restricts visibility of sources in Portal and IPTV views for all clients (browser and Haivision Play STBs) based on viewer location for all non-administrator roles. For example, if a source is sent to a Media Gateway at the Montreal location and a user is in the Austin location, the source does not appear in the Portal or IPTV section of the HMP browser. (The Library view is not affected.) If the user then travels to the Montreal location and signs in to HMP, the source appears for the user to view.
    • Location-based filtering ignores topology links and distribution policies. Only sources that have an HMG from the user's location configured as the source receiver are visible.
