    Split-screen for running ads


    Hi,

    At my organization we have a very large touch screen tv that we are planning on running windows 8 on. What we want to do with it is somehow have a split-screen setup where a fraction of the screen will run advertisements from our sponsors, and the other portion will just be the normal desktop. Does anybody know of any way that this can be done, preferably without the use of any expensive software?

    Thanks,
    Connor

    Hello!

    With the app snap in Windows 8, you could probably use the Video app to run a video of ads from your sponsors, snapped next to the Desktop.

    Like so...
