Displaying 4 Standard Def Streams using an XD1032

Hi

I want to be able to display four standard definition streams on a single screen using a xd1032. How can I do this please?

I have tried adding four video zones to a project but only two are allowed.

Norman from Pixels-UK has advised that the XD player will play two HD videos or four SD videos but we are not sure how to set the player up using Bright Author.

 

Many thanks

    You can't currently play 4 on screen at the same time with the current firmware. But, we have an update coming that will support more than 2 videos on screen depending on the player and the resolution of the videos.

    Hello, has this update been made available yet? I'm still wanting to display up to 4 streams one is each quadrant of a touch screen.

    Yes, in brightauthor 4.6.  You can create a new project, and choose mosaic mode.  Choose any layout, it doesn't matter.

    Once inside your mosaic project, go tot he layout section under edit.

    Delete your zones.

    Then, add 720x480 mosaic zones. You can add up to 6 if your project's set to 1920x1080. Your content can't be any larger than 720x480 or it won't work. Using this method you can play 6 streams on that player. If this were a 4k unit, you could play more, or if you chose smaller than 720x480 zones, you could play even more.

    Does Mosaic work in portrait mode through BrightAuthor.  If not can it be scripted?
