    Scan Converter on Windows 10 machine running two monitors

    Hi there!

    I am considering adding a low-profile USB extension monitor to the workstation on our virtual set, it will look much better on the set "table". But I'm wondering if there could be any issues running two monitors (same display, not stretch) with Scan Converter?

    Advice much appreciated, as always!

    NDI Scan Converter has support for multiple monitors. Once multiple displays are connected you will be able to choose which 'Desktops' you want to share. It is possible to share Desktop 1 while not sharing Desktop 2 for example.

    I have right-clicked on all the NDi tools I have but cannot see where to choose between Desktop 1 and Desktop 2. Can you tell me how to do this please? At the moment, only Desktop 1 is being captured but not the Extended Desktop 2, Peter

    I should mention that is there is a restriction when it comes to multi-monitor support. NDI Scan Converter loads into the GPU. If the system has multiple GPU's (like two separate graphics cards) it will only see one GPU at a time. In some drivers, you can force which GPU is the default and NDI Scan Converter should load into that GPU.
