LG Monitor / Any Other Monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello All 

 

I am looking for a new monitor, and have kinda a strange requirement. 

 

I have been looking at the LG Ultrawide monitors, as I saw a video that would let you take 2 inputs and then display them on the monitor at the same time... 

 

After doing some research today, I found this is called lg dual controller, but it looks like it will only work when you install software on both PC's.

 

My issue is one display will be from a PC, and the other, from my Nintendo Switch, so the switch I can't install the software, thus I am not sure if it will work as expected, or if the software is just so you can use the same mouse on both systems, and move files around. Which I don't need. 

 

So what I would like to ask is 

 

A) would this LG system work with the 2nd device been a switch

B) if not, does anyone know any other ultrawide units that can display 2 inputs at the same time, side by side. 

 

Thank you.

Yes you can do it, just make sure it says picture in picture or PiP or PIP on the monitor specs.
