Adding a Custom Background Image for Bluescape on a Large Display

Support Note
This topic may not be relevant to all Bluescape users and may not apply to all teams. If you’re unsure whether your team has this feature/capability/integration, please reach out to your IT department.

After installing Bluescape for a large display, an admin can update the background image to customize the look of the lobby screen.

Adding a custom background

  1. Log into the PC as an Administrator user.

  2. If open, close the Bluescape for large display application.

  3. In C:\ProgramData\BluescapeLargeDisplay, open the ‘app-config.json’ file within the BluescapeLargeDisplay application folder using Notepad.

  4. Add the new text to the last line in “clientConfiguration” section of the json file “wallBackgroundImageFile”: "<path to the locally stored image>"
    a. An example is “wallBackgroundImageFile”:“C:\\Users\\Shaun\\Downloads\\111.jpg”
       i. Please note there are two slashes for each area.
       ii. Also, for the line above you will need to add a comma at the end of the line if it is not added to the last line in “clientConfiguration” as seen in example 2.

    Example 1:
    “guest”: false,
    “sentryDSN”: “https:/0018a5c80a484cb798@o966/450430118112”,
    Example 2:
    “sentryDSN”: “https:/0018a5c80a484cb798@o966/450430118112”

  5. Save the file.

  6. Launch Bluescape to view the new background.

Note: If this is done incorrectly, you will have to rename your wall with a new name and re-point the app to the appropriate instance.
