I’m currently working on a project for a client, and I will need to implement dual monitor output for the final result. I did a search and found out that I can achieve this with a GXM (like the Matrox DualHead2Go) which will split a single wide output between two monitors.
1 - Is this the only way to achieve this? From what I’ve heard, you cannot run realtime graphics on two separate monitors at a time without using a trick like this, but if there is another way I’d be very interested to know.
2 - If we use a GXM, will the client be able to display half of the output on his laptop monitor and send the other half to another monitor or projector? Or will he need to send a signal out from his laptop and split it to two separate monitors from there?
I’m looking forward to hearing what those of you who have tried this before have found.
