Second Display: Two Screen Working Environment in Silverstack

Silverstack XT and Silverstack Lab offer the possibility to extend the Silverstack user interface to two screens.

Accessing the Second Display

When a second display is attached to your machine the “Second Display” button in the toolbar shows up:

By clicking the button you can toggle the user interface to be shown on the second screen on and off.

Alternatively the UI on the second display can be enabled from the “Window” menu. Set a checkmark to the entry “Second Display” to activate it.

Second Display User Interface Options

The second display opens automatically on the screen that does not hold the Silverstack main window.

There are 3 content options for the second display:

  • List View of clips

  • Player View

Silverstack automatically adapts the interface to avoid a simultaneous display of the same element (List View, Collection View, Player View) in both the main window and the second screen. When an element is accessed that is already shown in the other display it is automatically flipped with the previously shown element on the first screen.
