How many simultaneous videos can a BrightSign player display

Applies to

  • Carousel 7.0.4+

Answer

BrightSign units  vary in the number of video decoders they come with. For example the HD and LS series units only have a single integrated video decoder, while the XD2 comes with 2 video decoders. The Carousel player will attempt to play as many videos as decoders are available to the player. To ensure that high priority bulletins are displayed the player prioritizes content.

The importance of a video is based on the type of zone on which it's scheduled, and whether the video bulletin is also an alert.

In order of importance (from most important to least important):

  1. Video bulletin in a full alert zone
  2. Alert video bulletin in a zone
  3. Non-alert video bulletin and background audio bulletin in a zone

If the priority changes at any time actively playing content will be stoped to make resources available for higher priority content.
