There are different ways to tune the displays by adding information or by changing the layout:

  • Clock, can be shown on top of the screen or on the bottom of the screen

  • Title shows the name of the content App, Show next gives predictability

  • Status bar shows the screen's performance and helps to notice if it needs special attention.

These settings can be forced to all Displays. If needed the settings can be modified on a single Display basis.

Other ways of tuning the Displays are

  • Orientation is a way to differentiate, as most displays are in landscape orientation

  • Split the display in areas with the Multiview App


Tuning the layout of a single Display

Following steps explains how to modify these settings on a single Display.

  1. As a first step choose DISPLAYS

  2. Locate the Display for editing

  3. Double click to open


    TIP: To narrow down the selection start typing the name of the Display to the Search field

    Note! If you cannot locate the Display, check that SHOW ALL DISPLAYS YOU CAN EDIT is chosen on top of the page. It lists all Displays you have access to.

  4. Open the PREVIEW & LAYOUT settings tab on the left


Show title setting

Show title shows the name of the App on top of the screen. This helps the audience to put the content into the context.

Show clock in the title bar can be used when the title bar is used.

The clock time comes from the location of the Media Player, if the information is available. The time zone setting can be manually altered from the SETUP.

Show next app title brings predictability to the content Flow.

When the upcoming content is visualised on the Display, your audience might just stay at the Display for that extra 15 seconds just to be able to read the next important message.

Example of Show title and Show next app title:

The Title on the left shows that news by AFP is showing.

Up next on the right gives predictability to the Displays when the viewer can see what content is coming up next.

The name given to the (content) Apps are shown on the Title and Up next fields.

See this example with Show title, Show clock on a title bar and Show next app title settings turned on and used on a Display:


Show Status bar setting

Show status bar adds the online status of the Display to the screen.

A green bar on the bottom shows that the Media Player is online and functioning.

A red pause symbol indicates that the Display is currently offline, even though it is presenting content.

Show clock in the status bar can be used with the status bar.

The clock time comes from the location of the Media Player, if the information is available. The time zone setting can be manually altered from the SETUP.

Show display owner lets people know who manages the Display.

Example of Show status bar and Show display owner

The green line shows that the Display is online. The name between the square bracket is the owner of the Display. The information is shown on the bottom of the Display.

See this example with the Show status bar and Show clock in status bar settings turned on and used on a Display:
