Display seating on a VDU or plasma screen

You can display full screen scrolling text (like film credits) showing seat assignments in the monitor_16VDU Chart pane. For example you might be able to connect the VDU output of a PC or Mac laptop to a plasma screen at a venue. We strongly recommend you test this before an event to ensure that your hardware/software is compatible with the screen and you have the correct cable.

The chart below shows the (approximate) time taken for the display to scroll through a full cycle at a readable speed:
