Video wall advice
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:27:56 PM »
I am building a 3x3 video wall. The issue is that in some instances I may want to run separate content on each of the screens; meaning I'll have 9 images running at once. Can I run 9 separate images with one Scala player?

Or should I chop it up into 3x1 with 3 players?

Lastly, does anyone have any custom media player recommendations?

I think every TV needs a scala license.

yes, you can use 1 player, one output at 1920x1080 pixel to your 3x3 videowall. So you have each monitor at 640x360 pixel, then in scala you can divide your 1920x1080 channel in 9 frame of 640x360 pixel. When you want a fullscreen video you just schedule it to play full screen.

What if the video wall have 9 output from the player and have a large resolution than 1920x1080?

Yes, One way to do this is to output native resolution:
- set the custom pixel resolution in your frame set in the CM
- set the custom pixel resolution in your Template .SCA
- config the displays as a single group. Using video card software like Eyefinity. 

   I just built a 3x3 Video wall using 3 AMD W8100 and 9 55' Samsung displays.  I configure the displays using Eyefinity Pro drivers.  The group resolution came out to 5760x2340.

Another way is to setup two groups and then set the player config to a single channel with two displays. The player will group the groups :)
