Can I synchronize multiple BrightSign players?

Last Updated: May 5, 2016

NoteThis article describes an old (though still valid) method for creating video walls. See this FAQ for an up-to-date list of options for creating a video walls.

Yes, all networked BrightSign models support synchronization over Ethernet using BrightAuthor. You can synchronize up to 255 units on a local subnet (and up to double that number if you can bridge two subnets). Synchronized presentations are created in BrightAuthor with an Interactive playlist.

Watch the following videos to learn more about synchronization:

You can only synchronize BrightSign players that belong to the same model family: For example, you can synchronize an HD222 player with an HD1022 player, but you cannot synchronize an HD222 player with an XD232 player.

Keep the following points in mind when using synchronization:

  • Synchronization is not supported over Wireless.
  • You cannot use the Synchronize command and the Pause Video command at the same time.
  • We recommend using the latest production BrightAuthor and firmware versions available from the Downloads page.

    Yes, HD220 and HD222 are the players of different generations. HD222 is more powerful. You can synchronize them, but be aware that the differences in overall processing speed can cause delayed reactions on interactivity between players. Really depends on what the sync usage is and how accurate you want sync to be. To get best sync results, we recommend using the players of the same product line. So sync HD220 with HD220 and HD1020. Accordingly, sync HD222 with HD222 and HD1022.
