Display Studio: How do I create groups of displays for my monitor wall?

Topic

This monitor wall functionality is targeted for systems with a large number of displays/zones that may be using multiple operators.  Large systems face challenges configuring their monitor wall in a way that all the displays are viewable at one time.  Multiple group monitoring allows operators to setup multiple groups of displays that can be switched between on their monitor wall depending on their operating needs.

Environment

Product Family: Software; Control System
Product: 
Components: Display Studio Monitor Wall
Control System: Show Control System (SCS) version 2.25+

The Display Studio's built-in "Monitor Wall" delivers confidence by letting you see all your displays or zones right from your user interface.

Steps

Set up the monitor wall

For the basics, see: How do I setup a Monitor Wall in Display Studio?
Note, if you upgraded Show Control from a previous version without monitor wall groups, the update will default the current monitor wall configuration into Group 1.  This can be edited and renamed as needed.  
 
To create groups, Right-click in the monitor wall and select Properties to open the Monitor Wall Properties pane.
  1. Add a new group or choose an existing one to edit.
  2. Add displays to the monitor wall.  
  3. If needed, adjust the display's alias to something the operator can recognize.  
  4. Save changes.
