Sync in different monitor

Good morning everybody.

I've a little question:

i've 10 monitor with a LS424. Each monitor can have 4 different state (closed, open, menu, sale). I send an UDP by a browser to change the state of each monitor.

How can I sync the different monitor with the same state?

Example: Monitor 1-4-5 have the state (video) closed. How can I make this video in sync?

Thank you

    Thanks for the reply.
    I knows the sync event.
    But i can’t set one BrightSign that send the udp, because i don’t know what monitor can do the master.
    If the monitor 1 is closed, it can’t send the udp for open...

    Given the price of the LS, you could consider dedicating another player, to act as a head-less master (without display).

    That player could perpetually loop a video file, sending out sync signal to any slave on the local network.

    From my experience, for some applications, and if the video is not too long, a single UDP message that starts video playback on other players, should work fine. (No need for Master/Slave Sync)

    Even if the synchronization is not theoretically perfect, the result is satisfactory.

    This could be a perfect solution!
    Thank you.
    I’ve thinked also to send and udp by http to the broadcast every tot seconds (the lenght of any video).

    If you broadcast UDP, then you do not need to extra head-less player.
