FrequentlyAskedQuestions • 1 Master, 1 Satellite configuration: Do the master and the satellites have to be connected via Crossover LAN-cable?No a normal patch cable is sufficient. • Is it a UD-LX hardware solution only?Yes. UDC is not supported! • Do I need minimum an entry license?Yes • Do I have to switch on the master and satellites separately?No, the satellites boot via Wake on LAN command. • Which display resolution is maximum for two/four/six/eight screens?1920x1200 • Is Pivot supported by the satellites?Yes
FrequentlyAskedQuestions • What accessories are needed?One PCIe network interface card (NIC), Lan/Crossover cables and probably a switch/hub if more than one satellite must be connected. • Do we have accessories in portfolio?Yes, see Starter Kit on slide 5, includes network card + license, NO switch, NO LAN cable. • Does other NIC than INTEL xxx work?Yes, but not officially supported by IGEL • Are there specific reasons for using UD3, UD5 or UD9 instead of UD2 as satellite?In general graphic intense applications above the task worker level might require more graphic performance even on the satellite. Due to this UD3, UD5 or UD 9 might make sense.The UD5 in particular might be focused if 4 digital outputs are a must have. UD9 might be used in space constraint environments.
