Output Display Array

1. Output Display Array
The array is much like the one found in Windows “Display Settings” It illustrates the current layout (resolution size and position) of all attached monitor outputs. Legion constantly monitors for any changes to this layout and will update accordingly.
 
NOTE: To ensure proper setup, the output that has been designated the systems primary user desktop will appear as red and cannot be selected for use. Do not confuse this with Legion’s ‘Primary’ designation, that is simply the apps way illustrating the one that is selected for program out.

Selected Destinations

 
Primary/Program:
To select the program output, simply right click on the desired display and select "Make Primary". When the primary is selected the tile will become blue.
 
 
Cloned:
If needed, you can select another output to be a clone of the primary one. This can be handy in situations where a separate alpha mask is needed for a downstream key.
To select, right click on any gray tiles and select “Clone Primary”.
 
 
If the cloned output is to be used as an alpha key, that output will need to desaturate all color and/or invert its light and dark shades. Selecting either or both will affect the change.
 
Spanned:
Another feature is the ability to create spanned pixel spaces. A spanned space effectively extends a single program output across multiple display screens. This is useful when needing to display ultrawide resolutions that exceed the capability of a single output.
 
To prepare for a spanned space, first go to Windows Display Settings and ensure that all outputs you wish to use are aligned in the pattern that you require.  For example, if you need to provide enough outputs to cover a resolution of 7680 x 1080 then you would need to arrange them all horizontally from left to match the physical arrangement of projectors keeping in mind the display index does not necessarily reflect their physical arrangement.
 
 
Another example would be like a video wall. You want to display 3840x2160 media using four 1920x1080 monitors.
 
 
Now once that has been done you can come back to Legion’s display selection panel and setup the span by first selecting the top and left most output in your arrangement.to be the primary.
 
 
Next right click on the right and bottom most output and select “Span With Primary”.
 
 
And now you should have one large output tile.

Additional Output Options

You have to ability to also output all program activity directly to either a Decklink SDI output and/or NDI stream. This can be done whether or not you are already outputting to a conventional HDMI and/or DP type monitor.
 
3. Additional Output Options
 
Decklink:
    Check to enable the use of a Deckink card as an output.
 
Device:
    Select the appropriate Decklink output.
 
Mode:
    Select the desired SDI resolution.
 
Create Separate Alpha Channel:
    As it implies, check if you need to use another available Decklink SDI output for use as an additional alpha key mask that clones the primary SDI output.
 
Allow Partial Opacity and Invert Mask:
    Each are used to adjust the key’s visual characteristics.
 
 NDI:
    Check to create an NDI stream of the program output.
 
Title:
    This is the label that is visible on the receiving end designating the feed.
 
Embed Audio Source:
    Check this to also send program audio with the video feed. Be sure to select the correct audio output device whose signal you want streamed.
