Output to Multiple Monitors
Multiple monitors are also known as: second monitor, multi-monitors, right monitor, dual monitors, multi-display, multi-display.
TouchDesigner can send video out to multiple projectors, monitors and recorders. TouchDesigner can run single-monitor or across many monitors.
For Windows 7: On the Desktop background, rightclick -> Screen Resolution -> Multiple Displays -> Extend These Displays.
For Windows 8/10: On the Desktop background, rightclick -> Display Settings -> Multiple Displays -> Extend These Displays.
For macOS: System Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement -> Mirror Displays = Off.
All graphics cards now let you have two+ monitors. The easiest way to get video on 3 to 6 monitors is to use Geforce 680 GTX and up, Quadro 5000 and up, equivalent AMD Radeon cards, along Matrox DualHead2Go or TripleHead2Go or Datapth X4 monitor expansion devices. With a DualHead2Go on each of the 2 video outs on the graphics card, you can get 4 monitors, and it looks like 2 double-wide monitors to Windows.
