Advanced Topics - Multiple Displays

Top  Previous  Next

The Multiple Display Support feature let's you send presentations to more than one display window simultaneously. Each display window is controlled independently. To use multiple display windows, you can configure your system to have multiple display devices such as through a video card that has three or more video outputs, or through the use of multiple video cards. You can also use devices like the Matrox DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go which let you span a single video output across multiple display devices.

 

By using multiple displays, you can specify one display to be used for primary presentation, another display to be used for supporting illustrations or scripture text, another display for an announcement loop, and another for stage display.

 

Configuring multiple displays is done through the Display Settings window. To open this window from within the Presenter Window:

 

1.Select the menu command Tools > Display Settings. This will open the Display Settings window.
2.Configure the display windows.

 

 

If you are using a Matrox DualHead2Go, please read the instructions for configuring this device.

If you are using a Matrox TripleHead2Go, please read the instructions for configuring this device.
