Meeting room display?
If you regularly connect an external source, we suggest you check out the available options for "Automatic source prioritization" or "Auto source switching" available in the display's settings menu. If available, the display can automatically detect and display your HDMI signal, like a PC or laptop, and then use OMNIplay as a "backup" when no source is available.
