HomeZoom Commander › Multiple Screens layout

In a 'Multiple Screens' configuration, multiple Zoom Presenter instances are used on one or more PCs, with custom media content playing on each connected display device or screen zone.

 Hardware Setup Scenario #1

The first multiple screen hardware setup scenario uses one Windows PC wired to multiple display devices. Connect the display devices to the Windows PC and test that Windows correctly identifies each display device.


 Hardware Setup Scenario #2

The second multiple screen hardware setup scenario uses multiple Windows PCs wired to one or more display devices. Connect the display devices to the Windows PCs and test that Windows correctly identifies each display device.

 Zoom Commander Setup
With all display devices wired to the Windows PC(s) and Zoom Presenter installed on the same Windows PC(s), Zoom Commander is ready to begin setting up the screens.

For each display device or screen zone, add a screen entry in Zoom Commander (see adding screens) to remotely identify and control the display device or screen zone. If the new screen entry should cover the display device's full viewable area, set the new screen entry to the 'Fullscreen' layout and specify the display device's windows monitor number (see screenshot below). If the new screen entry should only cover a section of the display device's viewable area, review the Screen Zones layout section.

Lastly, the IP or Address of the Windows PC running Zoom Presenter and the port specified in Zoom Presenter INSTANCE manager must match each zone's screen entry. If the computer's IP number is not known, read the "IP Address" section of the Troubleshooting guide for assistance.
