 BrightAuthor Version 4.7
The BrightWall™ feature allows you to easily create, publish, and edit video-wall deployments. Video walls are created by synchronizing the playback of a number of players using Genlock. Each player is connected to a different screen on the wall, and the players are linked over a local network connection. Simple looping video playlists are the only presentation type supported by BrightWall. Images and interactive playlists are not supported: Use this FAQ to compare the capabilities of different synchronization options.

The process of publishing BrightWall presentations differs from publishing standard presentations. See the Publishing a BrightWall Presentation page for more information.

BrightWall Requirements

  • Video Files: We recommend using the .mp4 or .mov container for video files that make up a BrightWall presentation. Transport Stream (.ts) files are also supported, but they must begin with a presentation timestamp (PTS) offset of zero. Program Stream (MPEG-PS) files are not supported.

Note

It is possible to create a seamlessly looping video wall if the video files are formatted appropriately. See the Seamless Looping FAQ for more details.

  • Networking: All players must be connected to the same network via Ethernet cable. We recommend using a dedicated switch or VLAN for BrightWall(s).
  • Multicast: Multicast must be enabled on the network (BrightWall uses the PTPv2 network protocol). BrightWall uses the following multicast address: 224.0.126.10:1539. 
  • Domain: When multiple BrightWalls are operating on the same network, each concurrent presentation must have a different domain number, which is set when creating the configuration file.
