Multi-Display on One Large Curved Monitor
71 26 7
Hi folks and Happy Thanksgiving! If you’ve been considering replacing multiple individual computer monitors with ONE large screen monitor, you may want to have software which allows individual ‘monitors’ showing different screens to be displayed on the one monitor.
As most of us know, multiple monitors allows us to be more efficient during report production, reducing or eliminating the need to switch back and forth between various web sites we need to use.
I first learned about this technology from Brandon, at SPARK, i.e., www.choicevaluation.com, who moved from 4 individual monitors to one large screen high def TV used as a monitor. He has a video explaining what type TV to buy.
The software Brandon recommended is Display Fusion and for a short time, they are having a half-price sale on their software.
I decided to buy their ‘multiple computer’ software (Pro Personal), which allows it to be installed on more than one computer, with a lifetime license with one payment. Read their site for more details. You don’t need their ‘Steam’ version, unless you are a gamer.
I’ve also decided to replace my two individual monitors (one vertical, one horizontal) with a 32″ curved monitor currently on sale at the ‘big C’ store. Hope to get the install done this weekend. That will have a total height and width size about the same as my current set up, but will allow me to have the form on one side, vertical, and two other screens horizontal, three monitors total. Power consumption should also drop, since I’ll eliminate one monitor.
Display Fusion allows multiple configurations of the ‘monitor screens’ on one monitor, and in use, you can switch between those configurations. That means the larger TV or monitor you have, the more screens you can display without those being too small to see and read. Brandon says his 55″ TV displays 4 – 24″ monitors!
I’m sending this info as a courtesy only, based on another peer’s recommendation. I have no direct connection to the company, and purchased the software.
