A command is a general element that can be added to programs, timetables, command schedules that either adds functionality or performs an action. For example a "Full Screen" command can be added to a layout to force the screen to playback subsequent content in full screen. Another example is a "Panel OFF" command that stop playback and attempt to turn off the panel.

The "Command Schedule" can be used to issue commands at a specific date and/or time of day.
