I'm planning to build a personal art project using multiple monitors. I'm not sure if I'll do this in Windows 7 or 8. Not having infinite wall space in my house, I want to make a photo gallery using multiple 24" monitors, that can either cycle through groups of pictures or have certain collection fixed for a while. Screen savers are random things, while I want curated list. Each photo is assigned a monitor, and all monitors change together to the next collection of pictures. Can I do this with your existing software, is this a forthcoming feature and/or do I need to program this myself? Ideally, I'd love to have this controlled by a tablet that normally sits on the wall, giving information about each picture the way a museum display would, but it could be used in wifi mode to allow somone on a couch to browse through collections of images. Note I don't want that interface to allow somone to create collections, that's to be done elsewhere and when.
@Dave: That sounds like a very interesting project! With DisplayFusion, you can have each monitor display different images from a folder of images. Each monitor can use the same folder, or a different one, and they can be synced to change at the same time or different intervals. The only part it can't do is the remote tablet control. If you had your computer and the primary monitor in a different room, you could manage DisplayFusion from there without anyone seeing what you're doing. If you'd like more in-depth assistance, drop us a line at email@example.com.
i read the capability that it can run to 11 monitor, so my question is can it run for 20 or 30 monitor in merged display, thanks and if it different version, how much does it cost
please send me, an email
@Abu: DisplayFusion can't force the monitors to run as one combined large display, that would need to be supported by the video card hardware. Regarding the features and pricing, you can find the full list at the link below, and the pricing is at the bottom of the page
I would like to know, if i can display different application on different screens. I have a laptop and 3 monitors. I want to work on the laptop and see different live application on each screens.
@Sujin: You should be able to do this. Feel free to give it a try, and if you run into any trouble, please contact us with more details: http://www.displayfusion.com/Support/
I have an AMD Radeon HD 6870 video card, with 2 digital ports, 1 HDMI port, and 2 mini-ports.
For now, exclude both mini-ports, which supports 3 monitors per port (supposedly if using a monitor hub).
Hence, I would like to utilize the remaining ports for three monitors instead of the 2-monitor default limitation.
As indicated, therefore, by comments in your first paragraph, your program should be able to circumvent the 2-monitor limitation, thus allowing me to display said monitors concomitant of my video card.
Please advise accordingly... Kind regards...
@Gary: Unfortunately that's a hardware limitation that cannot be worked around using software. I've updated the first paragraph to clarify that a bit better.
I'd like more info on the use of a tablet, and the possibility of extending DF onto my laptop screen.
@James: We'd be happy to provide more info. Could you email us with some more details on what you're looking to achieve?
I dont understand how to add multiple (more than 2) monitors. Should I buy multiple video cards or one where I can split the USB feed with a hub? Or is there a better way. Also, ar there video cards/companies you can recommend to make I can get passed any hardware issues? thanks
@J Powl: You can add additional video cards if your motherboard and power supply can support them. Alternatively, there are some cards that have 4 outputs (like the ATI FirePro cards), or you can certainly do USB video adapters (http://www.displaylink.com/shop/adapters), though they aren't good for gaming.
