Depending on the resolution of your Player, you may wish to resize your image content to ensure optimal content playback. In this article, we will show you how you can go about resizing your images.

An oversized image relates to any image that exceeds the current resolution set on your Player (for example, publishing a image with a resolution of 3840x2160 to a Player with a set resolution of 1920x1080). It is advised that you ensure any content deployed to your Players does not exceed the resolution of the Player itself. Failure to do so can result in Players falling offline, content playback freezing, and more.

  4. Press File > Save As and select your output format (JPEG or PNG)

  5. Choose a save location and file name for your image then press Save

Please Note
