On Dreamoc HD3, Dreamoc POP2 and Dreamoc POP3, the Fusion feature is built-in already. But you will need 1 ethernet cable per display and a router/switch with enough ports to allow all your Dreamoc displays to be connected. If you wish to run Fusion on other Dreamoc display versions than the ones mentioned before, you will need to buy external media players that support synchronised playback. We can help with that as well.
We have tested and verified up to 24 displays in one setup. But theoretically many more should be possible. If you are considering an installation larger than 24 units, we recommend you contact us.
The router can be placed anywhere near the displays. On some Dreamoc models, smaller routers can even fit inside the display.
Yes. A Fusion setup requires 1 movie per Dreamoc display that have been produced with the fusion setup in mind. Each movie should be created in full resolution and all movies have to have the exact same duration.
Well, yes and no. For each movie for each display, the template can certainly be used. But in order to get the full overview of the complete Fusion impression, we strongly recommend setting up a project, with a composition that shows all movies together as they are intended to be installed.
So if you aim to install 3 Dreamoc POP3 displays in a horizontal row, you should create 3 seperate POP3 movies. But in order to preview the full result, you could setup a composition with the 3 movies next to each other.
Having problems playing your Dreamoc movies ? And are you using Mac?
It appears there can be a playback issue when copying movies from Mac to an SD/CF card. With the introduction of OSX 10.5, Mac changed the behavior of their hidden file structure. This is causing some compatibility problems across platforms in general. More information can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.DS_Store
This tutorial shows you how to delete the hidden files and make your movie work when copied from Mac. There is no such issue when copying movies from PC.
