Two Inputs, one monitor, no switching. Preferably PBP.

    I work as an airborne survey analyst. We utilize an aircraft to acquire hyperspectral images, RGB images, and LiDAR data. We utilize a monitor to control our hyperspectral system, and also utilize a second display in order to track our flight progress, altitude, speed, flight line selected, heading, distance to start of line, distance to end of line, etc. Our survey plane is a small plane, and there is little space available to put two large monitors. In fact, it's impossible. We need a small monitor (perhaps 13"-17") with dual-input capability, so we can simultaneously control two separate systems. Is this in anyway possible?

    Thank you.

    I've not seen any monitors that will display two inputs. There may be a specialty item somewhere, but standard PC parts won't do it.

    Have to agree with oddball in that I am not aware of any monitors that can simultaneously display two inputs. You can probably pick up a monitor with two inputs but you would have to switch between the two, normally via a button on the monitor, so can't look at them both at the same time.

    There may well be more specialist monitors capable of what you need, I just don't know of any.
