The Monitor Utility software uses Bonjour to automatically find all the SmartView Duo monitors on your network. You can save monitor settings from one monitor and copy to another, and when you’re working with lots of monitors, SmartView Duo even includes an identify mode to help you find the monitor you’re adjusting! SmartView Duo won’t suffer from drift because all adjustments are fully digital.
