Image Channels

This section details how to create, assign and work with Image Channel media assets.

Image Channels are mainly used in conjunction with Viz Multiplay for creating video wall layouts. However, you can also use Image Channels to add images to a 2D environment in DVE mode. You can still add additional 3D objects to your scene tree, but the Image Channel will always reside in the background of your scene unless you change the layer order via the DVE menu.

Image Channels are designed to work only in DVE mode, not Texture mode.
