I have multiple (6) monitors on 1 PC, and I want to play different info on each of them, is there such possibility to install your player to 6 screens? and move it inside windows to different windows?

If you have a video card that let's you stretch the desktop across all 6 monitors with 1 big resolution (i.e. 5760x2160) in the settings you can set your resolution to that custom resolution.

Then you can go into that area and break it up into 6 different placeholders each at 1920x1080 (I am assuming each display is 1080P)

Then you can either build your content out in each of those placeholders or you can also use the embed presentation feature and embed a presentation in each zone allowing you to separately manage each presentation.

Thanks for urgent reply! Well that is for more expensive video cards(our card cant do that) , but as I read here, I can start 6 chrome windows on 1 pc manually, giving them different display id's and by pressing F11. What are the CONS of such way?

you can certainly run a schedule as a url in a separate browser window. I think the complexity is getting those 6 windows open and positioned correctly.

You also wouldn't be able to use some of the features for setting up displays where you can remotely reboot, restart player, monitor etc.

feel free to give it a try and let us know how it turns out.

Can you pls provide the steps to starting multiple Chrome windows using different display IDs? I am looking to use my multiple monitors on a single video card as different displays.

Hi, I was trying to do that, but it is not stable.
My method was: after start to open multiple chrome windows in full screen with links by my own programm. But as I was playing a video, I found out that the video playing by using a link is not stable. So it is better to use original player, app or so on.
Links like this are not stable:

The video is playing in chrome, but if any internet problem for even 1 min, then the player crashes, despite the video is fully loaded.

I believe the only way you can run multiple monitors is if your hardware (i.e. video card) supports running in stretched mode. So instead of having 2 monitors it would show as 1 monitor at 3840x1080 (assuming you wanted 2 monitors side by side both at 1080P) or for a 4x1 configuration 7680x1080.

You should be able to do this in linux or windows with the right video card such as a Matrox QID

Hi, I have one PC (with its own monitor) plus 6 more using VGA/LAN-Minipoint devices, and actually running the solution MONITORS ANYWHERE. My questions are: is it possible to run 6 different displays with only one Rise Player Installed? and How can I set a "videoWall" for using all these 6 monitors, does the only way is to set the display resolution to this whole area? thanks!

Hi Luis,

In order to support Rise Vision on all 6 displays, your video card will need to see all 6 monitors as 1. This is usually done through some sort of display software provided by your video card manufacturer.

If your video card does support seeing all 6 monitors as 1 display, then the Rise Vision Native Player will certainly work for you.
