Rise Player is capable of displaying a Presentation over more than one display, but needs to be configured in advance. This article covers how it works.
**IMPORTANT** This is only available in the Windows version of the Rise Vision Player. Multiple Display support is not supported on the Linux operating system.
Our templates are designed to scale automatically to 16:9 aspect ratios, which means to use templates your Displays should be arranged in a square such as 2x2 or 3x3. That said, you can build custom content to fit any display arrangement by starting from a blank canvas.
In this example I am configuring four displays that will be side by side in landscape mode. All four displays are set to a resolution of 1920x1080.
In Windows, I'll need to make sure my setting for Multiple displays is set to "Extend these displays". This will make the displays behave like one big desktop.
I need to configure Rise Player to treat four displays as one large display, so I will take the horizontal resolution (1920) and multiply it by 2. My new screen width with be 3840. I will also take the vertical resolution (1080) and multiply it by 2. My new screen height will be 2160.
