If there are two screens hooked up simultaneously, the user sees the press console and print units on one monitor, and the print copy on the second monitor.
If only one screen is hooked up, the user must click on the stack to see the print copy. The display of the print copy then occupies the screen until the user asks to return to the press console/print unit view.
When using the double screen configuration,
the mouse will move automatically from one monitor to
the next: when it reaches the edge of one screen, it will
appear on the other one.
The press console and print units appear on one monitor and the print copy on the second monitor
The single screen configuration uses only standard microcomputer hardware available from any manufacturer of PC Compatibles. The double screen configuration requires a special graphics card (see below).

Double Screen Configuration
(recommended for Simulators) - Additions
The graphics card must have two display outputs (two VGA outputs or one DVI output with a Y cable). Some examples of cards that work with our simulators:
2nd Monitor same characteristics as 1st Monitor
Triple Screen Configuration
(recommended for Newspaper Simulators) - Additions
All simulators can be used with three screens. For example, in the newspaper simulator, the third screen is used to display the output of the folder. In that case, you will need an extra product from MATROX (product MATROX TripleHead2GO). It will divide the signal for 3 separate monitors with a resolution of 2400 x 600. Check compatibility of your display adapter on MATROX web site- GXM System Compatibility
Note: Touch screen can also be used to reproduce better usage of print console. See http://www.elotouch.com/ for more details
