Select Maintenance > Hardware > Video Groups to access this function.
Video Groups provide the ability to route items to video monitors located in the kitchen prep areas. You must assign each item that needs to appear on a video monitor to a video group. A video group can contain only one video monitor or multiple monitors, enabling items requiring two or more preparation areas to be routed to a video monitor in each area. For example, a grilled chicken salad needs to route to the grill area and cold foods area. Required Options: The Video Groups function appears only when you select ‘Uses Kitchen’ under the ‘Products installed’ group bar in Maintenance > Business > Installed Products > Global tab or ‘Display VideoMX’ under the ‘Options to display’ group bar in Maintenance > Business > Additional Features > Corporate Owner tab.
Reference: Refer to the Aloha Kitchen Implementation Guide for more information on using Video Groups with Aloha Kitchen.
Video Group tab
Use the Video Group tab to add and identify video groups.
Group Bar: Settings
Name — Identifies the video group. We recommend you use a name that describes the purpose or location (e.g., Kitchen, Counter, Drive-thru) of the video group.
Override item highlight color — Allows you to set the highlight color to something other than the default.
Override item priority — Allows you to change the item priority for items in the video group to something other than the default, if desired.
Video Queues tab
Use the Video Queues tab to select specific video queue display devices to include in the video group. The video queues currently available for assignment to a video group appear in the Available list on the left side of the screen. The video queues already assigned to the video group appear in the Included list on the right side of the screen. You can select up to five video queues per group. Related Requirements: You define video queues in Maintenance > Hardware > Video Queues.
Caution: If you access Maintenance > Hardware > Video Queues and select ‘Bump to video group,’ then assign a queue to a video group that would subsequently cause a system loop, an error message appears.
Group Bar: Queue assignment
Use the >> and << arrows to move selected video queues between the ‘Available’ list and the ‘Included’ list. The column headings that appear in the ‘Available’ and the ‘Included’ lists are as follows:
Number — Indicates the unique number assigned to the video queue.
Name — Identifies the specific video queue.
