I'm trying to insert a presentation onto an IPTV system.   The previous vendor used Expression encoder software to encode a powerpoint slideshow.   Do I need such software with a rise presentation?

D,

Rise Player is an entirely web based platform. Our player runs on Chrome, and all content is served via html, css, java, flash, etc.

How about when it passes through the HDMI cable of a player?  Is it not then considered a video?

D,

Right now, our supported model is a media player connected directly to a display. Using the platform on an IPTV system is not something we currently support and is completely untested. If you are successful in your project we would love to hear about it!

Blake, I'm still working on this and am need help with one issue I'm encountering.   I test the player on a display which sets the resolution at 1920 x 1080.   I then disconnect it from that display and connect it to an IPTV encoder via the Ethernet port and power it ion.   My resolution then drops down to 1024 x 7xx.   why is this happening ? Any way to manually change or lock it at 1920 x 1080?

D,

This sounds like an issue with the IPTV encoder. You may want to contact the manufacturer of that hardware to see if they support 1920x1080 resolution.

It does support the resolution.  The only connection to the encoder is ethernet and not via the display port.   An internet connection should not have the ability to alter resolution.   Would the fact I no longer have an HDMI cable plugged in lower the resolution?

D,

If a presentation is set to 1920x1080, it should display as that resolution on any media player as long as that media player and display both support and are set to use that resolution. Third party media players and other devices will all have different effects on the display. I am not an expert in IPTV, and I'm not familiar with the hardware that you are using for the display. My best recommendation would be to ensure your presentation and media player are set to the correct resolution.
