EVGA, the company mostly known for advanced graphics cards and mainboards, has unveiled its first display. The monitor features two screens that can be rotated. Even though the “Interview” display does not support full-HD resolution, the novelty can become rather popular in office environment.
The EVGA Interview monitor features two displays capable of 1440x900 resolution, along with a 1.3MP webcam and three port USB hub. Both displays are capable of being rotated independently vertically and horizontally. When the display is flipped 180 degrees vertically, the screen intelligently flips so users can effectively share documents, images, and files with ease. EVGA has not revealed what kind of matrix powers the Interview monitor.
Graphics and multimedia analyst, Dr. Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research did a multi-monitor usage study and found an increase in productivity from 50% or more.
"EVGA now enables in a single system what used to be called a 'partners’ desk, traditionally facilitating teamwork between two executives while facing each other. Now users can flip the EVGA monitor over and both see the same thing. Doctors can use it in a patient-doctor relationship for reviewing X-rays with patients, teachers can use it for one-on-one tutoring, engineers can use it where they want to have a collaborative discussion on a design...and you can use it yourself for having more screen real estate because the more you can see - the more you can do,” said Mr. Peddie.

A few more ways to Setup Multiple Monitors
1) You can buy a pre-manufactured multi-monitor computer. The best place to purchase a multiple monitor computer
is at: Multi-Monitors.com
. They carry a multi-monitor computer line called SUPER PC
that can support from 2 to 16 monitors.
Multi-Screen Computer Systems
Multiple Monitor LCD Displays
2) You can get a USB to VGA Adapter
, or USB to DVI Adapter
that will allow you to add an extra monitor to your computer via any USB2.0 Port. You can also add multiple extra monitors by using multiple adapters. This is a great option for viewing documents, surfing the web, using Microsoft Office and many other business tasks. This is not a good option for intense graphical situations such as HDTV, Blu-ray, Gaming and 3D / CAD Workstation applications. For those types of scenarios, it is highly recommended that you purchase a high-powered multi-monitor workstation or a Matrox Dual or Triple Head2Go
3) You can replace or add an extra video card to your existing computer, depending on how many monitors you wish to support. Although this sounds easy enough, this is a rather complex solution for a beginner, especially when trying to find a compatible graphics card. For this reason, I am going to write an entirely seperate post on that topic and will link to it here, very soon.
Multi-Monitor Video Cards
Once you have your multiple monitor system set up and ready to use, you will need to enable all of your monitors in your “Display Properties” Control Panel. Here is a great link to a complete and animated walkthrough of how to enable your multiple monitors in Windows.
