Disable or deregister from Kaltura

You can disable CMS for a registered Pearl-2 using the Admin panel and still select Pearl-2 as a resource using Kaltura MediaSpace. However, the events schedule won't synchronize on Pearl-2 and any events that are scheduled to start while CMS is disable do not start on Pearl-2. If CMS is re-enabled on Pearl-2 before the event is scheduled to end, that event will start automatically after the events schedule is refreshed on Pearl-2, see View scheduled CMS events and history.

Existing events that are already associated with the device do not lose their association when CMS is disabled. As soon as you re-enable Kaltura CMS on Pearl-2, you can record and stream events as usual. CMS is disabled by default.

Deregistering removes Pearl-2 from Kaltura's list of resources and any existing events that were associated with that resource lose their association. You must select a new resource for those events using MediaSpace.

Content Management Systems (CMSs) can change channel settings automatically. After disabling CMS on Pearl-2, it's good practice to check your channel settings or apply a configuration preset to restore your channel to known values.

Important considerations

  • You cannot start ad hoc (manual) Kaltura events when CMS is disabled or when Pearl-2 has been deregistered.
  • When CMS is disabled or Pearl-2 is deregistered, existing scheduled events that are associated with the device do not record or stream.
  • If Pearl-2 is deregistered, existing events associated with that device lose the association. You must select a new resource for those events.
  • Ensure the deregistered Pearl-2 entry in the list of encoder devices on Kaltura disappears before registering again if using the same device name.
  • Do not disable CMS while an event is in progress.
