  • 6. 

    CHECK ALL THAT APPLY A User issues a Priority 5 Command on a system with global Priority Mode set to Command Priority. Normally this action would be treated as Priority 5. Under which of the following conditions might the action be treated as a different Priority? Check all that apply.

    • A.

      The Page Station has Override Command Priority Level active.

    • B.

      The User has Override Page Stations settings and Override Command Priority Level active.

    • C.

      There is no way to alter the priority when in this scenario.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The Page Station has Override Command Priority Level active.
    B. The User has Override Page Stations settings and Override Command Priority Level active.
    Explanation
    If the Page Station has Override Command Priority Level active, it means that the priority level set for the Page Station will take precedence over the global Priority Mode setting. Similarly, if the User has both Override Page Stations settings and Override Command Priority Level active, it means that the user's settings will override the global Priority Mode setting. In both of these cases, the action may be treated as a different priority than Priority 5. However, if none of these conditions are met, there is no way to alter the priority in this scenario.

  • 7. 

    CHECK ALL THAT APPLY What types of Commands can be created in the Administrator that are specific to a Public Address system? Check all that apply.

    • A.

      PA Page Command

    • B.

      PA Play Message Command

    • C.

      PA Priority Override Command

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. PA Page Command
    B. PA Play Message Command
    Explanation
    The Administrator allows the creation of specific commands for a Public Address system. Two types of commands that can be created are the PA Page Command and the PA Play Message Command. These commands enable the user to make announcements or play pre-recorded messages through the Public Address system. The PA Priority Override Command is not applicable in this context as it is not specific to a Public Address system.

    MULTIPLE CHOICE What does the Queue Timeout field adjust?

    • A.

      The length of time a single command can live in the Queuing system before being cancelled.

    • B.

      The length of time a single command can live in the Queuing system before being automatically played.

    • C.

      The length of time after a message is added to the Queuing system that all commands in the Queuing system area cancelled.

    Correct Answer
    A. The length of time a single command can live in the Queuing system before being cancelled.
    Explanation
    The Queue Timeout field adjusts the length of time a single command can remain in the Queuing system before it is cancelled. This means that if a command exceeds the specified timeout period, it will be removed from the queue and cancelled.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If there are multiple commands waiting in the Queuing system, where will a new Command be placed?

    • A.

      Before all Commands of lower Priority, but behind those of equal Priority.

    • B.

      At the end of the queue.

    • C.

      At the front of the queue.

    Correct Answer
    A. Before all Commands of lower Priority, but behind those of equal Priority.
    Explanation
    A new command will be placed before all commands of lower priority, but behind those of equal priority in the queuing system. This means that if there are multiple commands waiting in the queue, the new command will be prioritized based on its priority level. It will be placed ahead of commands with lower priority, but behind commands with the same priority. This ensures that commands with higher priority are executed first, while still maintaining the order within commands of equal priority.

      Priority 5 has the highest Priority.

    Correct Answer
    A. Priority 1 has the highest Priority.
    Explanation
    Priority 1 is considered to have the highest priority because it is stated that "Priority 1 has the highest Priority." This means that when prioritizing tasks or issues, Priority 1 is given the most importance and should be addressed first.

    CHECK ALL THAT APPLY If a Command is issued to multiple Zones and only some of them are available, what happens? Check all that apply.

    • A.

      If the Command is selected to Split, then it will play in the available Zones and be queued in the unavailable Zones.

    • B.

      If the Command is not selected to Split, it will wait until all Zones are available and then play in all of them simultaneously.

    • C.

      The Command will be played in all Zones, interrupting any messages in the unavailable Zones even if they have higher Priority.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. If the Command is selected to Split, then it will play in the available Zones and be queued in the unavailable Zones.
    B. If the Command is not selected to Split, it will wait until all Zones are available and then play in all of them simultaneously.
    Explanation
    If a command is issued to multiple zones and only some of them are available, the command can be handled in two different ways. If the command is selected to split, it will play in the available zones and be queued in the unavailable zones. On the other hand, if the command is not selected to split, it will wait until all zones are available and then play in all of them simultaneously.
