The Auction Pipeline Admin site contains many powerful features used in creating and managing your auctions online events. To get to this page, log in to auctionpipeline.com/admin and navigate to Operations > Sale Manager, and select the appropriate sale date.

Once on this page, you will see all the lanes for your sale. Simulcast events can be “built” manually from this page, however on sale day this is done automatically in the very early hours of the morning. With a lane built, you will see all of the icons used to launch the various components of the EDGE Simulcast suite. You will use this dashboard to install software on your lane computers, as well as access the products on a weekly basis going forward.

*If you don’t have login credentials for Pipeline Admin, contact your auctions Internet Sales Manager or IT Manager.



The Clerk program is used to communicate with buyers and sellers about what is happening live in the lane, as well as record sale information. The Clerk program can run in either Integrated “Single Clerk” or non-integrated modes.



Installation and configuration.

Step 1- From the Sale Manager dashboard, navigate to the correct lane and click on the “C” icon (clerk).

Step 2- Depending on your browser and settings, you may be warned against pop-ups. Click to allow. A browser window will open up and tell you that no Simulcast software has been detected. Click the “Install” button on the webpage, and allow it to download the file.

Step 3- Run the installer file, and follow the prompts to complete the installation.

*Depending on your version of windows and settings, you may be presented with an error that the program has not been installed correctly. This error can be ignored, as it is false.

Step 4- Once installation is complete, you need to go back to Sale Manager and click on the “C” icon again. Now that the software is installed, you will download a small temporary file that holds the appropriate vehicle information for that sale/lane. This temporary file will have the extension .amsorm. It can be helpful to set this file extension to always be opened with the program “Auction Client”. Run this .amsorm file and the clerk program will open.

*If you’re using the non-integrated dual clerk, skip to step 7.

Step 5- The clerk program integrated directly with your AS/400 box to read/write vehicle information into the ASI system. In order to make this connection, the clerk program needs the internal IP address of the AS/400.

For “Port” use “8080”. After making these settings, they will be remembered by the Clerk program. To change the settings at a later time, they are available under the “Settings” dialogue.

*If you don’t know the IP address of your auctions AS/400, contact you IT Manager or the EDGE ASI Support Desk.

Step 6- The “Set Sale” dialogue is used to log into the sale. Be sure to select the correct physical lane, as entering with the wrong one selected will allow you in but then produce “missing vehicle” errors. The username and password are the same as used in ASI.

Step 7- Click “Activate Internet Bidding” to activate the clerk program/lane.

The first of two available marquees, the Web Marquee takes a minimalist approach as it was designed to work in compliment with ASIExec Lane Display or ASI Auto Lane. It is web based, and runs within a web browser window. No install required.




To access the Web Marquee from Sale Manager, select the “M” icon.

The Web Marquee will open in a new tab, and it can be placed on a lane television in “full screen” view. For most browsers, this is available under View > Full Screen or with the Keyboard Shortcut F11.

The Photo Marquee is the second of 2 choices to use for your simulcast lane marquee. It is designed for auctions that may not use ASIExec Lane Display Kiosk or Auto Lane, or auctions that require photos to be shown in the lane on all vehicles. It is designed to contain all relevant vehicle information.



The Photo Marquee is a windows app that must be downloaded and installed.

Installation and configuration.

Step 1- To access the Photo Marquee from Sale Manager, select the “P” icon.

Step 2- Depending on your browser and settings, you may be warned against pop-ups. Click to allow. A browser window will open up and tell you that no Simulcast software has been detected. Click the “Install” button on the webpage, and allow it to download the file.

Step 3- Run the installer file, and follow the prompts to complete the installation.

Step 4- Once installation is complete, you need to go back to Sale Manager and click on the “P” icon again to launch the Photo Marquee.

Step 5- The Photo Marquee is set at a fixed size of 1024x768. To get this app to “full screen” on you lane monitor, simply change your lane monitor to match that resolution.

The streamer software is used to project the video from the lane camera and the audio from the auctioneer into the bidding application. It is accessed through a web browser, and each lanes has it’s own URL based on a unique port number. These URLs will be provided by AUCTION EDGE, and should be bookmarked for quick recall.

Follow these steps to configure the web streamer for your simulcast lanes.

Step 1- Click the “S” button for the appropriate lane from Sale Manager.

Step 2- If you have Adobe Flash properly installed, you should be greeted with this screen. Click “Al­low” to continue, “OK” for Micro­phone, and “OK” for camera.



Step 3- Right-click anywhere on the grey box and select “Settings”.

Step 4- The “Privacy” tab should be selected first by default. Check the “Remember” box to save all your configuration options.



Step 5- Click on the “Microphone” tab and select the appropriate device. Check the box for “Reduce Echo”. Click on the “Web Camera“ tab and select the appropriate device.



Step 6- Close the “Settings” dialogue and click the Play button to begin streaming.

Step 7- Using a different computer, possibly in a different location with the help of a second individual, access the following URL-

http://apps.aet2.auctionsolutions.com/flash/flash_setup.php?audio_port=99999

replacing the “99999” at the end with the port number that you see at the end of the streamer URL. This will present the A/V stream to the viewer, and they can confirm the video and audio signals.
