Configuring Clients

This section covers the following topics:

Viewing in a Browser

The URL to access Viz Multiplay is: <ms_host>:8580/app/vizmultiplay/vizmultiplay.html.


The latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari is recommended for running on a desktop.

Touch Screen

Firefox is recommended, as it fully supports touch screen drag-and-drop functionality.

Note: The recommended minimum screen resolution is 1280 x 720.


The interface adapts automatically to smaller screens such as tablets.


Connecting to Media Sequencer

Viz Multiplay and other control clients (e.g. Viz Trio) must be connected to the same Media Sequencer (MSE) in order to share a show. Viz Multiplay can be hosted on one Media Sequencer and connected to the content of a second Media Sequencer by adding the URL parameter mse=<host> to the URL:


Note: Media sequencer stores all playlists and shows and makes them available to all control applications connected to it.

Configuring Asset Search in Viz One

Note: If you need help configuring Viz One, please contact your local Vizrt customer support team at

Once Viz Trio is configured to work with Viz One, the Viz Multiplay integration is straightforward.

Follow the steps below to enable asset search from Viz Multiplay:

Viz One Login

A Viz One account is required in order for Viz Multiplay to log in. Viz Multiplay can use the same account as Viz Trio. If it is a separate account, it must have the same access rights as the one used by Viz Trio.

Note: Viz Multiplay runs in a web browser, which handles authentication. The user must therefore enter a username and password in a dialog box provided by the browser, which caches these credentials.

To configure Viz One in Viz Multiplay:

  1. Go to Settings > Servers.

  2. Enter the hostname in the Viz One input box and press TAB. Viz Multiplay fills in the rest of the URL.

To configure Viz One in Viz Trio:

  1. Open Viz Trio.

  2. Select Configuration > Viz One and enter the Service Document URL, username and password.

Internet Explorer Settings

If you're using Internet Explorer, you must allow cross-origin requests (automatically supported in Chrome and Firefox).

  1. Open Internet Explorer.

  2. Select Tools > Internet Options > Security > Custom Level.

  3. Browse down to Miscellaneous, click Enable for Access data sources across domains.
