ColorSource Console and External Monitor


Is it possible to plug in an external monitor to the HDMI port and use it with a mouse to select items and control lights? 


It is possible to plug in an external monitor and use it for show file feedback.  This is done by navigating to Setup > Settings > Console and enabling External Monitor mode.  

However, this display is informational only -- connecting a mouse to the console will only allow you to navigate the built-in touch screen.

With regards to the display requirements you just need to make sure the display has provisions for HDMI.
