3x2 video wall

I'm sorry if this has been covered or resolved previously. The latest relevant conversation I could find in here was 3-4 years old.   Thought I'd ask again. I am currently building html content for  3x2 wall.  The total screen size or resolution in this case is 5760x2160.  Consequently I have configured my presentation with this resolution.  The RiseVision Display size however is limited to 1920x1080, of which seems to be a default characteristic of the device running the player.  Is there a way to increase the display size beyond 1920x1080, so that the content I have scheduled in each placeholder of my presentation is displayed on the screen it was intended for?
Thanks,
Chad

Chad,

If you are using Chrome App Player, the player can be stretched across multiple displays.

Chad,

I need to clarify my earlier post. Chrome App Player stretching across multiple displays is dependent on your video card. Your video card must support running displays in stretched mode. In house, we have tested Matrox video cards with good success.

Chad,

What OS are you running on this display?

Thanks Blake.  I am using Samsung UE46D monitors.  They have the ability to render the display across multiple screens.  I was hoping to built a presentation in Rise Vision that would display multiple sources across a 3x2 video wall by creating placeholders for each screen and sizing the presentation and display to 5760x2160.  It appears the presentation size and resolution can be customized but not the display. I have the player installed on  my MAC OS X laptop.  Connecting to the master display via HDMI.

looking for an effect similar to a control room where each monitor can display a different content source.

I don't want to stretch or resample any images or video.  Want the content on all screens in 1920x1080.  Is this just a matter of the graphics card?  Is there a media player out there with a capable graphics card?  Will RiseVision allow me to create a display in 5760x2160 if the graphics card supports that resolution? Thanks so much for your help Blake.

Chad,

We have not done any testing with multiple independent displays on Mac OSX. I would be interested to know what you come up with there. Rise Vision will allow you to create a presentation in 5760x2160, just select the custom resolution option form the the settings menu.

Right the problem is creating a RiseVision Display in that size.  Thinking that might be a default characteristic of my graphics card.

I just test on my iMac 5k.  The RV platform seems to only recognize display size rather than being able to set it in the platform.  The default size for a new display is 1920x1080 but RV detected my display size to be 5k as soon as I launched the Chrome App at full res.

I expect that you need to create your hardware set up and add the display to RV before you try to develop content for it.  Then you'll have all the right settings in the RV platform.
