"Synchronization is the coordination of events to operate a system in unison."

In digital signage, the term "synchronization" means that the content displayed on one screen is time-synchronized with the content displayed on other screen(s). In this context, multiple SpinetiX players can be used together to display synchronized content on multiple screens, with an accuracy that can vary up to one vertical refresh period. These screens can be combined to create the illusion of a bigger screen (also known as video wall) or can be independently positioned from one another, yet giving the impression of a whole.

This feature opens the door for unlimited possibilities of using SpinetiX players for more than regular digital signage content of texts and playlist of images or videos. Here are some examples:

  • Multiple displays can be grouped together in regular grid-like arrangements, but also in non-conventional patterns, to create video-walls and achieve a higher impact over the audience. For instance, it's possible to display a 8K video over 4 big 80" screens with one iBX440 player or four HMP400/iBX410 players.
  • Multiple displays can be deployed in the same hall to create an ambiance or a "leitmotif", with messages that appear synchronously on some or all screens, thus increasing the impact over the visitor. Furthermore, special animations can be created that are moving from one display to the next one, creating global effects. This can be used in retail shops, hotels, bars, offices etc.
  • Multiple displays can also be deployed one after another to create a long array of screens, as for instance along the escalators in an airport, mall, etc. Well-timing the content would then give the impression that the message is following the visitors as they move along.


There are two requirements for synchronizing the output on multiple screens:
