With so many modern laptops supporting 3 or 4 screens, it would be really useful to be able to utilise all connected screens as Vmix outputs.

On my backup VMix laptop, I use Magewell SDI and HDMI USB capture cards for inputs from cameras or graphics machines, but in terms of outputs if you don't have the luxury of a Thunderbolt 4 expansion chasis and a Decklink capture / playback card or similar then currently you can only use 2 physical fullscreen outputs.

If you only want something like a main screen and maybe a presenter comfort then that's ok, but if you also need something like a relay screen with different content, then the only way to do it at the moment is to use an NDI output and decode it with an NDI decoder attached to the destination screen.

Not that there's anything wrong with NDI, but it would be good to be able to utilise the hardware capabilities built into the machine.
