AJA as extra desktop?
on Aug 17, 2010 at 4:27:31 am

Greetings AJA gurus! Doea anyone know if the current AJA lineup allows you to use your AJA card as an extra monitor/desktop when it's not in use by editing applications? I know the blackmagic cards used to allow this on the Mac, but wasn't sure about the PC side.
thanks!
Chad

I know that the functionality is there for the Kona LHe card using the AJA ControlPanel if you install the correct drivers. However, the only time I did this on my machine (Mac Pro Core2Duo, OSX 10.5) it disabled Quartz Extreme on my other video card.

Not sure if you would experience this same issue on your setup, but the only way I found to re-enable Quartz Extreme on my ATI card was to re-install the version of the AJA Drivers with the Macintosh Desktop Display Disabled. AJA calls these the NDD Drivers.

Hope that helps,

It sounds like Joel just dashed your hope with a correct answer but I think there`s an area to add for success. Why not try tossing in an nVidia NV-7000 or `7100 64 MB video display card into an unused pci slot for your extra desktop without worrying about or removing the momentarily unused AJA card?
