Hi, I,am testing a dual monitor in order to have a full screen presentation  using an Asus Chromebox, so I have created a 3840 x 1080 presentation with a single big scrolling text, but it keeps blinking, attached is a video, does any one know if it is possible to solve this, and also, I needed to stop the kiosk app then -login-and then start the RV App, if the first issue can be solved, would it be possible to have also an automatic run?
thanks

Luis,

This type of setup isn't something that's supported by Rise Vision. We haven't done any testing with multiple display setups powered by ChromeOS. Furthermore, I'm not certain that auto-launching a Chrome Application is possible outside of kiosk mode.

Hi, I just posted the following reply on another thread about doing this.

YES, you can use the Matrox DualHead2Go Digital SE for dual monitors on a Chromebox. You will want to get the i3-based version of the Chromebox and one that has a DisplayPort output to support the higher resolutions and have enough horsepower. The Celeron units do NOT support 4k-type resolutions at this point. Just get the Matrox DualHead2Go Digital SE for about $160. Set up & configure the unit using your personal PC and the drivers. Then connect the DisplayPort cable between your Chromebox and the DH2G unit. DVI to both monitors at 1080p. Your content would need to be something like 3840x1080p for example. Nothing special in RiseVision required.
