MagicInfo-i Author and Video Walls
« on: March 02, 2010, 03:28:52 PM »
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to use the authoring tool to make a video wall?  The author tools exports an .lfd screen file/folder.  In the server, I can then apply that to a single screen but not to a video wall.  Is there a trick to this.  The authoring tool can't possibly be just for single displays, can it?

Any help is much appreciated.

So I just got off of the line with support, turns out this is not possible with MI-i Author.  :'(  He says that they are talking about including this functionality in the Advanced version of MI-i but who knows.  So all of you thinking about switching from Pro to -i might want to take that into consideration.

You can still create video walls with the scheduler but your content and layout is MUCH more limited than in author.  I still think that the server functions of i outweigh Pro but that is subjective.
