The Setup page in the players' section is where we have a view of all the players that are added to your SpinetiX ARYA account. Here, you can add, rename and remove players to your account. You can also see your player information in this page as well as set/change the orientation of the screen, the resolution of the display and set the screen on feature.
This article will give you all the information you need about the setup page and show you all its features.

Tip: You can set different time zones for each of your player. This is especially useful if you have a global deployment with players located at different geographical locations in different time zones.

After you set the time zone, the player will be visible from the Players page with the name that you’ve given it during the Add Player process. A green check mark will also be visible above the player to let you know that the player is ready to use.

In parallel, the display also shows a message telling you that the player is ready.
