Display Foldback Monitor Setup

 

Matrox DualHead2Go or TripleHead2Go Setup:

When using a Matrox DualHead2Go or TripleHead2Go box, the secondary output from the video card is spanned across two monitors. The screen resolution for that monitor is double wide.  For example, two monitors at 1024x768 would be 2048x768 using the Matrox DualHead2Go.  EasyWorship is able to use half of that screen for the front of house and half for the foldback.

 

Finding the Width and Height of both Monitors:

  1. Right Click on the Windows desktop.

  2. Select: XP: Properties, Vista: Personalize, 7: Screen Resolution skip to step 4.

  1. Click the Settings Tab or the Display Settings Link.

  2. Click each monitor to determine the size.

  3. The size will be displayed in the Resolution area. e.g. 1024x768

Using Foldback with Secondary Graphics Card:

Using the TripleHead2Go or DualHead2Go box is the recommended way to use foldback; however, an inexpensive secondary video card may be used for foldback purposes. Using the secondary card for the control monitor is ideal in the situation.  This allows you to use the more powerful primary graphics card for the foldback and front of house display.  The secondary graphics card usually will show up in the windows display settings as monitor 3. Extend the desktop to monitor 3 and set it as the primary monitor, then follow the instructions below.   See: Dual Monitor Setup for help with extending the desktop.

 

Front of House Settings:

  1. In  EasyWorship click the options button on the toolbar.

  2. Under General, Select Output Monitor, Change Output Monitor to Primary Monitor.

  3. Click OK.

 

Foldback Settings:

  1. In EasyWorship click the Live menu then Display Foldback Options.

  2. Under Monitor Options, Select Foldback Monitor, Change Foldback Monitor to Secondary Monitor.

  3. Click OK.
