Configuring the EngagePHD Windows App for Multiple Screens

The EngagePHD supports using a multi-output Windows player to drive content on multiple screens. The steps below walk through configuring the EngagePHD app to play content correctly. Please note: Each screen is considered a Player and would require purchase of an EngagePHD license for each screen. Please contact your EngagePHD representative for more information or to purchase additional licenses.

Adding Players 

Once licenses have been purchased and allocated, you can start adding players to the Players section of your network.
Please see: Adding Players to Your Network for steps on how to create your Player Records.
