  • Download Multi-Monitor Summary report w/ TOC

This report covers the results of a survey of end users about their use of or interest in employing multiple displays for the purpose of gaining productivity in their work, or entertainment. The use of multiple monitors dates back to the beginning of the PC age (1981) when multiple display controller boards (as they were called then) had to be used and custom drivers employed.

Since then multiple concepts for driving multi-screens have been developed and evolved to today where the Windows and IOS operating systems can easily handle the management of multiple displays and even integrated graphics can (for most situations) drive them.
