To use one of these Tablet Monitors you will need the following.
- Computer - either Mac or Windows. If you will be using the Tablet Monitor in conjunction with a projector, your computer will need to have 2 video outputs

The tablet monitor connects to your computer via DVI (an adapter can be used to convert to MiniDisplayport etc). Make sure that the display setting is optimized for the Tablet monitor. (On Mac, System Preferences, Displays). There is also a USB cable that needs to be connected to your computer for the Stylus to work.
