ReleaseDateKey Features Introduced

Release 11.08

10/03/2019

  • The Scala Font Collection has been added to Content Manager 11.08, Designer 11.08 and Player 11.08. The Scala Font Collection is a collection of fonts that playback in the Windows Playback Engine, Linux Playback Engine, Content Manager, and Designer. For more information about the Scala Font Collection, see Designing Content for Scala Enterprise. Click the Fonts and Typography tab.
  • When using Broadcast Server distribution, scheduled plan generations auto-complete without the need of manual review. Note: Manual transmissions are still recommended for Broadcast distribution due to satellite transmission fees. Consider using the "once a day" or "once a week option". If using multiple Broadcast servers, ensure that your transmissions do not overlap; the first plan sent for dissemination will take precedence, causing subsequent broadcasts to fail. CM-11307
