Network Video Wall – Quick Setup Guide

How to setup your first Network Video Wall?

In this tutorial we will explain how to setup Monitors AnyWhere Connect to use our Network Video Wall feature.

This feature allows you to install eye catching video walls and show videos of all types and in all formats as well as dynamic web-based content from any content management system such as HTML5, Flash and WebOS. You can also have different applications shown in different zones of the video wall or an external source feed. 

With this advanced feature, you can also set multiple Network Video Walls to run from the same PC.

 

NEW! Create a video wall of any shape, size and layout. Don’t limit your creativity – place the screens anywhere on your layout and give them a tilt.

Setting up a video wall in a grid and creative layout

Setting up the displays in a grid layout

 

In this example our screens are positioned in a simple rectangular layout of a 2×2 video wall.

In Monitors AnyWhere Connect go to File > Displays Configuration

The Displays Configuration tool will open, listing all the available zero clients on the Extended Mode section.

Identify your screens

 

Click on the Identify screens toggle button to show the identification number on all of the screens.

Drag and drop the icons to the Video Wall mode section

 

Drag and drop the screens to the Video Walls mode section according to their actual position in the video wall.

Click apply or OK and you are done

 

Once the setting is done you can either click Apply for it to take immediate affect but stay in the setting tool or OK to apply the settings and go back to Monitors AnyWhere Connect application.

 

Windows® will recognize the new setting as a video wall consisting of your four combined screens.

Additional settings

 

You can change the resolution per screen setting in order to create a video wall with the resolution of up to 8K!

 

For example, four screens positioned in a 4×1 array in landscape mode will create a video wall with a resolution of 8K.

You can change the layout by dragging and dropping the screens anywhere on your canvas, tilting and changing their size.
