Video Wall Video/Image player
This package allows you to play back videos and images on multiple screens. Build a giant video wall with ease.
Similar to other packages you can configure a playlist consisting of images and videos. It's recommended to use the Asset Browser for easy selection of assets.
In the Layout Configuration section you can set how many screens your video wall setup consists of. You can also tell the system if all monitors are rotated (clockwise). A setup with 3x1 screens rotated 90 degree might look like this:
Finally you must assign devices to each grid location. Click on Add Device, then select the grid position (x=1, y=1 is in the top left corner) and select the device that should display this location.
If you have multiple video walls that should display the same content, you can also assign multiple devices to the same grid position.
This package as experimental support for live streaming. Just enter a stream url and your device will play that stream instead of the configured playlist.
Since there is no communication across devices running a video wall setup, synchronization is tricky. Right now streaming really only works if you configure a RTP multicast stream. You can use the "Multicast Video Streamer" to generate such a stream from a connected camera module. Learn more about the package:
