VTube Screen Resolution Recommendations

Best Screen Resolution for 21:9 Aspect Ratio Monitors

These are called ultrawide monitors. The ideal resolution is 2560 x 1080.

It is necessary to have a video card that can support this aspect ratio and resolution.  See this page for details on newer ultrawide monitors.

Best Screen Resolution for 16:9 Aspect Ratio Monitors

The minimum ideal screen resolution is 1920 x 1080.

This is an example of 1920 x 1080 resolution in VTube-STEP:

MINIMUM: 27" Panel Monitor Recommended

We recommend a minimum of 27" flat panel monitors like the Samsung shown on the right.
Most customers prefer a 32" or larger screen.


Some customers like to use larger monitors to allow for easy viewing by multiple operators. This B/E Aerospace installation shows a large TV. The benefit of using an HDMI cable for a TV is that the TV has built-in speakers that replace separate amplified speakers.

Warning: Some cheaper TVs have annoying lagging mouse motion. We find that the better brands don't have this delay.

Multi-screen Support

VTube offers extensive multi-screen support that allows you to display three main windows simultaneously.

This image shows the STEP screen on the left and the LASER screen on the right.


When VTube senses multiple screens, it shows the Switch Screens buttons in the toolbar.


This setup shows LASER mode on the left screen and BENDER SETUP on the right.

This setup is appropriate for users who regularly send setup and correction data to benders.
