Most good graphics card has 4 (or even more) outputs. Can we have more than 2 fullscreens?

Very often I find myself in a situation where 1 for PC display, 1 for mutliview, 1 for program output/LiveU and 1 for specific Input.

Regards

A solution for this is to use a Birddog MINI. Using vMix 4k or above, you set output 1-4 to your preferred source. Set the MINI in decode mode (or after today's FW release encode and decode) and select the NDI source from vMix you want to display. Connect the MINI to your additional display.

+1 for the extra screen output, could be usefull when you use vmix as a replay platform...

+1 ... (NDI will suck a lot of CPU power in comparison to a gpu solution)

This was requested many times before, and the explanation Martin did give in the past was that it is very difficult to get extra fullscreen outputs because of timing issues that arise.
I do agree it would be great to have, even if it would only be one extra, but with a not too expensive extra system, you can get 4 NDI outputs extra for cheap.
The hardware NDI products also are interesting, I like the lower priced Birddog mini, a great camera solution to get the signal to vMix and send a return video at the same time, but if you only need outputs, building a system for the same money gets you 4 outputs instead of only one.
It is time the Chinese get involved with NDI. ;)

Well, Magewell is not a Chinese price warrior to me.
They make decent products that are not overpriced, but not cheap either.
For 2K to add 4 outputs to my system, I will still choose to build a system for it for a fraction of the cost.
