How to Keep Two or More Screens in Sync with Channels

by Santino

This article will go through How-to keep two or more screens in sync in ScreenCloud using Channels. You can learn more about how to use channels with ScreenCloud by clicking here. If you are using the legacy version Signage (2015), please use the Schedules feature.

When using separate devices we try to keep things in sync but for video, it's unlikely it will be perfectly in sync as each device uses its own system clock and there can be slightly variable time for videos to start playing.

However, the first thing you need to do to keep two screens in sync is to apply content using Channels. First, you add your content or media to a playlist, then assign the playlist into a Channel to schedule your digital signage content. Then, you can simply assign your Channel(s) to any desired screens to keep your content in sync with each other. If you are using Signage, set your content or playlists within your Schedule.

Alternatively, if the screens are not far from one another we generally recommend going with a desktop running the chrome player and an ATI Eyefinity Graphics Card. This will not only keep your screens in sync, but you will save cost on the number of screens you'd have to subscribe.
