View 4 PCoIP Multi-Monitor Pivot

without comments

View 4 with PCoIP does support 4 screens with a maximum resolution of 1920×1200 per monitor. Mostly I see customers with the requirement for two screens and very often they are asking for the Pivot function where you can flip the screen from T-scale to L-shape like shown in the photo.

With View 4 it’s really easy to setup this configuration. First of all your client device (Thin Client, FAT Client or Laptop) must support multiple displays and also the pivot function. With Intel graphics chipsets and drivers you can do a 90 degrees flip of the screen when pressing CTRL-ALT and arrow left, right, up and down. If you have an other graphics adapter vendor just check the Windows control panel / screen menu.

In View Administrator you have to set the maximum screen resolution and the number of monitors on the client. These options are set in the Desktop Pool Settings and need a reboot of the VM afterwards. After you’ve done the changes in View Administrator you can see that the virtual machine is reconfigured when you look into the vCenter’s task list.

At the end you’ll just need to select the multi monitor option in the View Client when connecting to the desktop. Don’t forget to set PCoIP as connection protocol, when not restricted via View Administrator.
