We know that one thing a lot of people have been looking for is the ability to go across multiple screens, and the Rise Vision Chrome App Player is now capable of doing just that on Windows.

You can download the new Player from here, and read all about how to set it up on your Windows Display here.

Let us know what you think!

G'day,

I came across this topic when looking for information on if/how I can use dual monitors with the Chrome App Player running on a Chromebox (Chrome OS) set up for single kiosk mode via Chrome Device Management as per:

http://www.risevision.com/help/instal...

When the player launches on a test device (an Asus - http://www.asus.com/us/ASUS_Chromebox...) with two monitors connected - it runs on one monitor and the second goes black.

I've tried publishing a 3840x1080 Presentation to it but it only displays on the one screen - the other is still black.

Is this because the Beta Chrome Player only supports dual monitors on Windows or do you have any other suggestions please?

Thanks

HI Adam,

You are correct in that currently the multiple monitor capability is limited to Windows when using the Chrome App Player.

Unfortunately, We don't have a suggestion regarding Chrome OS at this time. We'll let everybody know when this changes.

Thanks.

Has there been any progress using the extended displays in Ubuntu?

Hi Dave,

At this time the Chrome App Player on Linux only supports a single screen.  We'll let everybody know when that changes.

Thanks.

Hello

Is the Chrome App limited to 2 monitors? Or is it also possible to use 3 or 4?

regards
Marc

Hi Risevision team,

Great platform that we are using for all our needs...however - when will the Chrome App Player also support multi display?

Many thanks

SD,

CAP will support multi display if your video card supports displaying all monitors as one large display. Let's say you had two monitors that supported 1920x1080, and they were side by side. If your video card supports viewing both of those at a resolution of 3840 x 1080, you will be able to display CAP across both displays.
