Screen selection

The selected screen is highlighted with a blue edge. The bar with the operating components makes up the bottom edge of the screen.

  • Selected screen: Selects a screen using this selection box to configure the following settings.
  • Screen resolution: Move the slider to the resolution which the selected screen is to have. The resolution is shown in the right-hand box. From Version 3.12.100, the setting is configured using a slider. If the slider is at the far left, the screen resolution will be detected automatically.

In order for automatic detection to work, the monitor must supply the correct data.

For details of the maximum resolutions supported by IGEL models, please see the data sheet for the relevant device.

For the rotation (pivot), at least 128 MB as video memory must be configured in the thin client's BIOS.


  • Refresh rate: Number of individual images per second
    Possible values:
    • 56 ... 100 (default: 60)
  • Graphic card: Graphics card assigned to the selected screen. A graphics card can have more outputs than are actually used. In order to ensure transparency, you may need to assign the graphics cards manually.

    If “Automatic” is set for the monitor and no configurable monitor is found for the selected graphics card, the next available monitor will be used by another graphics card.
  • Monitor: Assigns the screen selected under Selected screen to a monitor connection. Example: HDMI(II) (default: Automatic)
