How to make my Signage Screens display the same picture at the same time?

In certain scenarios, one would find it desirable to display content at the same time, including making the content switch content at the same time.

In short, this is possible with our functionality Syncplay, which you can find under the settings for the media player in OMNI. However, Syncplay is restricted to only displaying videos at the same time, which is the problem we are solving here.

  1. What we want to do is make the picture a video instead, and this can be nicely done with Microsoft PowerPoint. To do so, insert your picture into a PowerPoint presentation. If there are several pictures, have each picture be it's own slide.
  2. Save the PowerPoint as a video file. Navigate to File -> Export -> Save as video. Full HD 1920x1080 is always a safe bet, as not all screens are able to display 4K.
  3. Now that we have our video file, we can upload this and enable Syncplay.
  4. For our next steps, refer to the article here.
