Using External Multi-Screen with Livestream Studio™

Livestream Studio™ software has a built-in external multi-view, or Multi-screen, option. This allows you to display any of your available inputs, or sources, on a secondary display.  The software can support up to a Quad GPU setup out of a graphics card which can output to up to 4 displays. On your  Livestream Studio system, you have the option of outputting to one additional display for your Multi-screen setup. 

For best results, we recommend connecting the secondary display to the available HDMI port on the graphics card connected to your Livestream Studio system (It will also work with DVI and VGA connections). 

Once that has been done, visit the "Screen Resolution" section of your control panel and set the "Multiple Displays" option to "Extend these displays". 

-Open up your Livestream Studio™ software
-Click the gear wheel icon on the top right to open up the Settings menu 
-Visit the Multi-Screen section, configure the desired resolution and select the layout you would like on your Multi-View monitor: 

Disable Primary Multi-View: Will disable the Multi-View shown on the primary display.
