Setup and Usage
Well what are we going to be using the UltraAV with? The computer system we are using is the Dell Studio XPS 1640, it has the DisplayPort output. We are going to be using 3 different monitors as well, a ViewSonic VX2433wm 23.6-inch, ViewSonic VLED221wm 22-inch and a Dell 2001FPW 20.1-inch.
The first thing you are going to want to do is connect all 3 of your monitors to the UltraAV. Then go ahead and connect both the USB and DisplayPort connections to your computer. As soon as you do that Windows will automatically detect the UltraAV and install the drivers. Once it has done that it will clone your main desktop display on all 3 of the monitors, which is pretty cool.
Obviously you do not want the display to be cloned on all 3 of the displays. You can easily go into your display properties and change it to extend the display. One thing that caught me by surprise was that it recognizes all 3 displays as 1 single display. While this isn’t bad I would rather have 3 independent displays. That way they could operate at different resolutions and I could have certain things maximized on different screens.
Using the displays as one large extended is pretty cool though. Anytime you have more desktop room it is nice. The 3 displays are configured as one large display with a resolution of 3840 x 1024. That is a max resolution we could get with our monitor setup. It still worked pretty good as I could have different things open on the 3 different monitor which made it very easy to multitask.
