Screen Magnification

By brian ·
I have 3 screens hooked up to a computer system and need to display different information to each screen. Each screen is showing a call viewer for a different department, therefore the screens must be an extension desktop setup. I need a program which will allow me to select a portion of each of the screen and zoom in on it. The microsoft built in magnification utility works great if we were only using 1 screen, but with three screens, this is not an option. Does anybody have any suggestions out there. Thank you!

Why MUST the three screens be an extension desktop setup?

Why don't you run a separate desktop in each screen?
What spec of graphics card do you have installed?
How many PCI slots does the motherboard have?

The graphics card we are using is an ATI card with 4 DVI-D outputs on it VIA 2 dongles (I am unsure of the ATI card model at the moment). The system only has 1 additional pci slot available to use, but installing a graphic card into that slot may cause the card to overheat as there is not a lot of room in the case left. I am unsure about running a seperate desktop on each screen, if you can do that in windows xp pro that may be the best answer! I will take a look at that option as well.

You could try UltraMon. It should meet your needs.
