Hi, I need to see 'Program monitor' on two monitors at the same time. Is it possible? Thank you.
It works, but I need playback on both monitors and my reference monitor shows new frame only when I pause playback.
Program monitor shows video playing like always. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong.
Wow I just tried, and I swear that you used to be able to do this with the reference monitor! Mercury Playback it is then...
no, not possible. most people end up using a video monitor from some hardware ( like BM 4k pro SDI output from PCI-E X16 mobo slot ). There are external hardware devices available to split up signals ( route ) to stuff too.. and all this gets a bit complex so you'd have to research it and also check out the expenses.
This is a video monitor on top with a field monitor on bottom ( I use as slate sometimes with VITC). The hero monitor ( correct color ) is the top one, using a pass through SDI from that to the field monitor.
Two monitors to left ( out of frame ) are Eizo primary color calibrated and a junk HP monitor for scopes and stuff.

You can see the program in the "program monitor" window in your workspace, as well as send a Video Out signal though the "Playback" options (in preferences) to however many monitors you would like that are connected to the system.
Thank you, this is what I need:)
There is a small latency between those two screens. You can adjust it by going to preferences/playback and changing offset. In my case it was 20ms. You can test it by recording both monitors with smartphone (120fps if you can) and then checking it frame by frame.
Don't forget, although you have your correct answer already... that when you choose your playback options in your preferences, you are actually 'choosing' which video monitors or other hardware routing system you want to use... which is basically what I said to begin with,
You can't just duplicate the program monitor and play it out of your video card to another monitor, which is what you would ideally like to do.
good luck !
I see its an old post but replying anyway as I just got it working after Adobe support.
Preferences>Playback>Video Device (select all of the monitors and Adobe DV) It should work.
