How to run embed across multiple displays on Windows OS device

Windows OS devices that can output to multiple displays can be used with embed as a single player. Here's how to set up the outputs.

With the Windows OS embed player application installed and running on the device, carry out the below steps:

  • Press CTRL+Q, ESC or right click the mouse to bring up the settings panel:

  • Enter the default password then select the yellow 'Settings' button

  • Next, you'll see the display available on the device - select each one so it's highlighted in blue and then click the 'Apply & Save' button

  • You will then be taken back to the password panel where you can select 'Done'

The app will now be running over the selected displays and when it nexts checks in to the CMS, you'll see the device resolution has updated to show the full output.

For embed to output across multiple displays, they must run in sequence - it is not possible to run embed missing out displays.

In the above example (5x1), you could not set embed to run on screen 1, 3 and 5 missing out 2 and 4. However you could run embed on screens 2, 3 and 4 (missing out 1 and 5) as 2, 3 and 4 are in sequence.
