Configuring a Quad Display Topology¶
The Display Topology page lets users change the display topology for a PCoIP session.
Before applying the display topology feature to a PCoIP session
To apply the display topology feature to a PCoIP session between a client and a VMware Horizon virtual desktop, you must have VMware Horizon 4.5 or higher. To apply the display topology feature to a PCoIP session between a client and a PCoIP Remote Workstation Card, you must have the Remote Workstation Card Software installed on the host.
Use the OSD, rather than Windows Display Settings, to change display topology settings
Always change the display topology settings using this OSD Display Topology page. Do not try to change these settings using the Windows Display Settings in a virtual machine when using VMware Horizon.
OSD Quad-display Topology page
The following parameters can be found on the OSD Quad-display Topology page.
OSD Quad-display Topology Parameters
|Enable Configuration||Enable to configure a device that supports four displays per PCoIP chipset.|
|Display Layout||Select the layout for the displays (A, B, C, and D). This setting should reflect the physical layout of the displays on the desk.
|Alignment||Select how you want displays aligned when they are different sizes.
This setting affects which area of the screen to use when users move the cursor from one display to the other. The alignment options that appear in the drop-down list depend on the selected display layout.
|Primary||Configure which video port on the Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client that you want as the primary port.
The display that is connected to the primary port becomes the primary display (that is, the display that contains the OSD menus before you initiate a PCoIP session and the display that is requested for the Windows taskbar after you initiate the session).
|Position||Specify which display is physically connected to each port.|
|Rotation||Configure the rotation of the display in each port:
|Resolution||The display resolution can be configured for a PCoIP session between a virtual machine or host and a Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client. The Tera2 PCoIP Zero Client detects the supported display resolutions of the monitor and populates them to the drop-down menu. By default, the display’s native resolution is used.|
To configure display settings:
- From the OSD, select Options > User Settings > Display Topology.
- From the OSD Display Topology page, update the settings for the attached displays.
- Click OK.
