Multiple Media Screens on Multiple Displays

Requirement

You need to display multiple Media Screens simultaneously, at full screen size and each video on its own display device (see Figure 2). These instructions are for the 2 video arrangement shown in Figure 2, but can be adapted for any number of displays.

Set-up Steps

First, set the program to Multi-Screen mode. Go to Behavior > Screens Mode. Clicking this menu item will toggle the mode between Single-Screen and Multi-Screen mode.

For these instructions, we will assume you have set up two Media Items (one for each video).


Steps
    Now perform these steps on each Media Item using the controls in the Media Screens Dimensions panel (Figure 1).
  1. Set Target display to desired display "Secondary.1" or "Secondary.2".
  2. Set Size Mode to "Full Screen".
  3. Location,Size is ignored when using "Full Screen" mode.
  4. Screen Alignment is ignored when using "Full Screen" mode.

For more information on the Media Screens Dimensions panel, see the Media Screen Dimensions Help page.
