I want to use the ultrascope while playing back from an AVID Symphony. Is it possible to use the same computer to run Ultrascope and AVID simultaneously?
Asked by: Doug M.
Maybe possible, but not recommended, because the ultrascope software using full screen mode for full intetface, so you will need a third display for it, which means an expensive gpu. It is much cheaper buying a basic pc for the ultrascope.
