Multiple screens, one presentation?

I am not sure how to ask the question. But essentially this:

We have 5 TV Screens where we want the same content to display on all of them at the same time.

Instead of uploading the Digital Slides to each screen's presentation, is there a way to make ONE presentation that can be deployed to all the TV Screens to save me time?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there - yes this is something the Rise software does well.    Here is a quick overview of how that would work

First - each of the 5 screens would have it's own media player attached to it, and show up as 5 displays in your Rise account.

Now, create the presentation that you want to play on the displays.

Finally - go into your Schedules  and set up the schedule.  Here,  you determine the distribution (in your case, select All Displays) and select the presentation you want to play on all of your displays.  Hit save and in a few seconds, all 5 displays will be playing the same content.

I hope that helps - let me know if I didn't understand the question correctly.

So we have more than 5 Displays and I don't want every screen to be taken over with this information (what I need are ADs to be displayed, but we also have some menus up that I don't want to mess with). 

How would I be able to select specific displays? Apologies if this is written somewhere, I just couldn't find it.

Hi - no problem!  You do it in the same place - in the schedules.  Here is an example.   Lets say you have 8 displays and you want the same thing on 5 and something else on the other 3.  To keep it simple, lets assume you want the same thing on all 3 of those displays.

So now you create a schedule - lets call it Schedule 5.   In there, you set your distribution and you just select those 5 displays.  Then add the presentation you want playing on those 5 displays and hit save - now those 5 are playing the same thing.

Now create a second schedule - lets call it Schedule 3.  In there, do the same thing - set your distribution and you select those 3 displays.  Then add the presentation you want playing on those 3 and hit save - now those 3 are playing the same thing.

It can get a lot more complex from here.  But just keep in mind that in the schedules, you can set the distribution you want and the presentation you want.

Maybe you want the 5 screens all playing one thing during the week and something else on the weekend - that's very easy as well.  The scheduling capabilities are really good.

My pleasure - I think it's actually fun to create complex schedules and watch them work.  If you get hung up while setting it up, just let us know.
