About This Guide
This document describes the tasks involved in setting up and maintaining the Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director system.
The content is intended for Cisco Vision system administrators and technical field engineers who are responsible for designing and deploying Cisco Vision solutions. It is expected that readers of this document are familiar with basic IP networking, power over ethernet, multicast, and virtualized server environments for the simplest scenarios.
In the documentation for Cisco Vision Dynamic Signage Director, we changed the terms “master” to “lead, leader, or primary,” the term “slave” to “secondary,” the term “whitelist” to “allowlist,” and the term “blacklist” to “blocklist.” There are currently no changes to the product’s syntax, so these terms are still present in the documentation where the current code requires their use. Where an industry standard exists, such as IEEE terminology, we cannot alter the term until the standards change.
