Background Shading and Alert Status

Shading Circumstances That Cause This Color
Yellow

A channel turns yellow if it has one or more active, unsuppressed alerts and its status is not Error.

When the conditions causing the alert are resolved, the alerts automatically clear and the shading returns to white. Also, if you suppress all active alerts, the shading turns white.

For details about active/cleared and suppressed/unsuppressed alert states, see Monitoring Alerts and Messages.

Red A channel turns red if its status becomes Error. If a channel both has alerts and is in an error state, it is red. The only way to return the shading from red to white is to refresh the channel to Idle.
White Channels that do not have a status of Error and that do not have active, unsuppressed alerts turn white.

Channels: Thumbnail View

This view shows the profile and encoder (node) associated with each channel and a thumbnail of the processing currently occurring with the channel.
