We bought 3 Planar PCT2785 touch screen monitors for an Eyefinity display group.

Setting up the display group works fine, but calibrating the touch accross the display group is a challange.  The Planar engineers recomended I consult ATI as its software is managing the resolution.

The Windows 8 calibration only recognizes 1920 width.  I need it to recognize the 5760 width.  Any advice?

Windows 8 Pro 64bit, MSI 7790 card, Latest Catalyst

 

Thanks in advance for any direction you can provide!

What software/hardware are you using to calibrate the displays?  By 'calibrate' you mean colour calibration, correct?

If so, you need to calibrate each display independantly, because each physical panel will vary slightly (despite being the same model).  This will be your first challenge.  You need a video card that can handle multiple Look-Up Tables (LUTS) and calibration software/hardware that can manage more than just 1 calibrated display.

At home, my Datacolor Spyder3 Express can only manage 1 calibrated display.  I will need to confirm, but I am quite certain the Radeon HD Series products do not have the ability to handle more than 1 LUT too.

The next challenge will be that creating the Eyefinity Group will make the system think you just have 1 big display connected, so I am concerned it the 3 independant calibrations (if you get them going) will go bonkers and simply won't work as you wish.
