Some clients had 2 LCDs on their desktop computers. In an extended desktop viewing arrangement.
For meeting purposes they installed wall mounted 40 inch 1080p HDTVs capable of 1280 x 1024 resolution.
The TVs had a VGA input.
Now they wanted to essentially have 3 monitors connected to their computer, in an extended desktop arrangement PLUS the HDTV would have to "mirror" one of their displays.
Their desktop LCDs were set up side by side. Their right-hand display is what they wanted to "mirror" over to the HDTV. So when they had meetings in their office, whatever was showing on their desktop's right hand LCD would also be displayed on the wall mounted HDTV (so everyone in the room could follow along).
(Prior to my arrival, some wannabe engineer had installed a pci express video card with 3 outputs: VGA, DVI and HDMI, but could not get it to display 3 outputs. They reported that every time they tried to enable the 3rd monitor within windows, the new monitor would enable, but the monitor which was previously indentified as display 2 would disable itself. End result was only 2 of the 3 ports on their video card could simultaneously produce a display).
Not wanting to embarrass the client who tried that, I simply told them windows was the problem and that they would need a video splitter/amplifier. Something like the dualhead2go.
We reviewed their options of products in the matrox line. The dualhead2go analog (vga) was $150 and the digital edition was $250. They opted for the cheaper choice, the analog VGA edition
They ordered the dualhead2go units and I came back when the dualhead2go units arrived.Read more ›
Windows XP laptop in a docking station.
2 Dell monitors, 19inchish
Had an annoying time find something that would let me close my laptop lid and use the 2 monitors as one big monitor (primary + desktop space extended onto the second.
Worked like a charm. Didn't give me monitor #1 and monitor #2 BUT allowed a resolution of 2048X768 aka super wide. Allows me to do exactly what I wanted - stuff off to the side (movie, email, etc.) while I work in the primary monitor.
Installation was easy however I could not use the docking station's USB port - had to be off the laptop. Called tech support and they nailed it quick.
Pro: The abilities of using both external monitors with a laptop or desktop. The best part of this product is the ability to have three screens instead of two. Yes..You use your laptop as the primary and both monitor as the secondary screen. How. after reading the instructions you can split the secondary screen into two. This makes three screen.
Con: Have not experience the full extend yet. But notice some quality may be lacking in split screen. If you not that picky and need to use extra screen this would be a good product.
The product was a snap to install on the Windows 7 64bit OS that we were running; we had the extended desktop working with little effort.
After a short setup, the client was utilizing the monitors for video. Quality was acceptable. Very happy with the product.
The only downside; it recognizes the two monitors as a single, larger monitor. When you maximize a window, it spans the two monitors as one desktop, instead of being able to identify the monitors individualy. It just means you have to size your windows to fit the individual monitors if you want to use them as separate entities. Not a show stopper, just something of note.
