Can a single Display be in multiple Schedules?

Is it possible to have multiple displays and schedules assigned to just 1 player?
We are trying to condense the amount of players per future project (and a lot of these projects will each have multiple displays), but we need to ensure that the assigned schedules per display will still work.
For example, we have one project that will need 3 displays (each are 1920x1080). Each display will need specific presentations set to specific schedules.
The schedules for each display will be the same for each display, so is there some way I can set my presentations to be 5760x1080 to be shown across all 3 displays, condensing both the number of presentations and schedules, and still use just one player?
Requiring a fast response if at all possible please.

Sarah,

A Display can only belong to one Schedule at a time, however you can put as many Presentations into that Schedule as you need.

For example you can have Presentation A show form 1 am to 8 am, Presentation 2 from 8am to 10am, etc etc.

Will that work for you?

Couldn't have said it better myself, specifically: "Windows will have to see your 3 monitors as a single desktop, if not Rise will always be limited to a single monitor.".

Thanks RPT!

The Intel NUC player here an i3 Part D34010WYK, any one with Intel HD Graphics and a Display Port should probably work. You will need so expand to 3 monitor outputs, we've successfully used MST 1 to 3 DisplayPort hubs and also the Matrox TripleHead2GoSE version which expands the DisplayPort to 3xDVI outputs. There are players on the market with multiple (up to 6) monitor outputs on AMD Radeon Graphics, but they're quite expensive.  Let me know if you need to know more, I'm happy to help.
