System Requirements

  • A computer with a DisplayPort v1.2 compatible Graphics Card (e.g. AMD Radeon with AMD Eyefinity technology) is required to display in video wall mode.
  • Mac OS X does not support MST for NVIDIA and Intel Graphics Processor Units, limiting video display on the connected monitors to mirror mode.
  • Backward compatible with most DisplayPort 1.1a equipment running current graphics drivers, with the feature set being limited to that of your equipment (e.g. you may be limited to displaying in Clone / Mirror Mode only). Compatibility with older graphics cards is not guaranteed.
  • Maximum supported video resolutions and number of monitors will be dependent upon your graphics card. Check the specifications of your graphics card to determine its capabilities.
  • A monitor with a HDMI port.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will be able to connect the MST Hub to the Mini Displayport on your Mac, and mirror the same video image on all screens connected to it. However, Mac OS X does not support MST for NVIDIA and Intel Graphics Processor Units, so you will be unable to extend the video across multiple monitors or to combine the image on all monitors in video wall mode.
