Standalone - Multi-head Output

Standalone - Multi-head Output

The exported Notch Standalone executable allows you to use up to two heads/outputs.

Notch provides a rudimentary feed/window selection mechanism to allow content arrangement on multiple heads.

Notch’s multi-head management is very basic and is not being further developed. You should use a media server for most multi-head setups.
All monitor outputs must be the same resolution and Windows is responsible for the display head order
