LINKED PLAYER PAGES
The Rangecast system allows the user to create customized pages in various formats and styles, link pages together, and share layouts with other users who are authorized to receive the same broadcast content.
A web-based configuration tool (the Rangecast control panel) lets you design a layout, with a drop-down menu for each button location (so you can select just the channels you want to have available), and the ability to enter your own label for the button.
Some button positions can also be dedicated to "links" that load the player with another layout. With this feature, you can create multiple focused pages (e.g. covering particular geographic regions, or tailored to particular types of incidents) and bring up the right page for your immediate needs. The transition between pages is seamless, and does not require reconnecting to the Rangecast system.
Individual pages can use any of our templates. Some styles are compact, with as few as 7 channel buttons, while other layout are huge and support hundreds of simultaneous channels. Some styles have large buttons (for ease of control), while others have miniature buttons (optimizing use of screen area).
In the page shown here, a "home page" brings up a page with active-content buttons each mixing fire department traffic from all towns in several Massachusetts counties, and the yellow "link" buttons provide access to focused pages breaking apart the individual towns in each county for fine-grain access and control.
