You can display calendar events on your screen.

  • If there are no upcoming events, playlist media will be displayed on your screen.

  • If there is an upcoming event or an active event, the screen will display a meeting room layout with event info on it.

  • You can specify main screens that do not relate to any meeting room, and they will display events overall (more details below).

Required: You must set a calendar data source in the Omma panel.


  • Open your Calendar. Go to Settings.

  • Select your Calendar, copy the private address in iCal format.

  • To access via Microsoft Outlook, click on the Settings and then View all Outlook settings button,

  • Select Shared calendars and click the Copy Link button to copy the ics link,

  • Go to Datasources. Click Create.

  • Enter a name. Select the refresh period as 15 minutes. Paste the private calendar link you've copied.
