On systems with more than one NVIDIA Quadro FX SDI card (as is the case with the NVIDIA Quadro Plex 1000), the Send Graphics to SDI Output page lets you configure the SDI output for each card. Before you can do this, all cards must be enabled.

To enable multiple SDI cards

  1. Make sure a display is connected to each SDI card that you want to enable.

  2. Open the Windows Display Properties page.

    1. Right-click the desktop, then click Properties from the pop-up menu.

    2. Click the Settings tab.

  3. Determine which monitor icon corresponds to the graphics card that you want to enable.

  4. There should be two monitor icons for each graphics card in the system. Typically, monitors 1 and 3 are connected to one graphics card and monitors 2 and 4 are connected to the other. For example, if monitor 1 is already attached, then monitor 2 would be grayed out, indicating that it is connected to the graphics card that is not yet enabled.

  5. Right-click the grayed-out monitor icon corresponding to the graphics card you want to enable, then click Attached from the pop-up menu.

  6. - or -

    Click the monitor icon, then click the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box.

  7. Click OK.

  8. You can now configure the SDI output for each SDI card as described in Set up my graphics-to-SDI output.
