Content Specification

Option 1: 4 Portrait screens

In this mode the 4 screens operate independently from one another, showing content in Portrait.

Each screen operates on its own and content does not play in sync. If you would like all of the screens in the video wall to show content together, please see option 2 on the following page.


9:16 or 2160 X 3840px (UHD)

Films / Animations

9:16 or 2160 x 3840 (UHD)

Option 2: Full screen

In this mode some content is lost behind the frames between each of the screens.

The combined width of the 4 screens is longer than the standard 16:9. This means when content is created at a 16:9 or 3840 X 2160px the top and bottom of the content is cut off.

Use the transparent Overlay linked under Templates at the top of the page to show which areas will be visible on the screen. Anything covered by the red area will not show.


16:9 or 3840 X 2160px (UHD)

Films / Animations

16:9 or 3840 X 2160px UHD (no audio)

Option 3: 3 + 1 Screens

In this mode, three screens work together to create a 16:9 display and one screen forms a portrait display.

Both displays operate on a separate playlist so can show different content.

Use the Overlay linked above to show which areas will not be visible within the left 3 screens.
