The core Show module defines the metadata structure for storing information about a show. In it's simplest form, it can be used as a digital replacement for the paper forms producers often submit with DVDs at public access stations.
Interaction with other modules:
Shows can inherit their default metadata from Open Media Project when installed, but Show can be used independently as well. Show uses PBCore, Creative Commons, and Location to populate much of the metadata.
Show adds a node reference to the om_airing content type when installed. This node reference allows stations to add a Relationship to Views that display upcoming Airings that links the schedule to Show page as well as display when a Show is scheduled to air again on that page.
Show does not require CCK Fieldgroup Tabs, but when installed it give the om_show form a multi-step process.
Customizing Show for Your Stations Needs:alter core fields with caution!.
Open Media Show contains 4 submodules:
- om_show_path - Adds textfields to store basic video path information.
- om_show_filefield - Approached used during the beta for adding filefields and imagefiled to the om_show content type that are normally managed by Media Mover.
- om_show_jwplayer - Adds CCK formatter to wrap the popular JWPlayer around the flv or h264 stored locally with om_show_filefield or remotely with om_show_path.
- om_show_filelister- Developed with funding from channelAustin to add a select list of files already processed by an encoder. Basically a replacement for filefield_local when using om_show_path.
