How do I create a video wall using BrightAuthor?

Last Updated: May 4, 2016

NoteThis article describes an old (though still valid) method for creating video walls. See this FAQ for an up-to-date list of options for creating a video wall

In this method, each unit plays a file that is a single part of the wall. You will need to partition the original video file before playback: For example, if you have two screens, then you would split the video into two equal-sized clips.

Here are the factors that can affect synchronization.

You will need to create a master BrightAuthor project, as well as a slave project for each other piece of the video wall. The master unit sends a signal each time it plays a video to keep the other in sync. The attached PDF file contains step-by-step setup instructions.

For a detailed and step by step video on synchronizing BrightSign, please watch the Video Wall Tutorial.

This YouTube video shows the 2011 Digital Signage Expo entry arch. The entry way contains 19 52" displays mounted in landscape and portrait controlled by one master unit and 18 slave units. As you can see, the 19 videos are played in sync.
