Imagine that you want to divide your screen into multiple zones. Main zone would play videos in a loop and there will be a footer with current time & news at the bottom. Something like this:

Multi-zone layout created with Scene Editor example

How to do this?

  1. Create a playlist with all the content you want to play in a loop
  2. Then create a scene
  3. Add a new "playlist" item to the scene and adjust its position. Click on the Select playlist button and select the playlist you created in the 1. step
  4. Add another item, this time "Scrolling Text" and adjust its position
  5. Click on "Save changes" and click on "Go Back"
  6. Click on the "Publish" button and select screens where the scene should be published to
  7. Go to the Screens dashboard, find the screen(s) where you have published the scene and click on the Preview (eye icon) and check the result

Tips & tricks

  1. Do not play multiple videos simultaneously without testing if your device can handle it. Cheaper devices, in particular, might have performance issues playing more than one video at a time. Also, note that the video may be "choppy."
  2. Similar effect can be achieved by using playlist's layout. You can learn more about it here.
