This question has probably been asked before, but here goes anyway as I'm not sure just what can be done. I'm thinking of using a TH2GO and three 22" or 24" widescreen monitors for the outside views. If I use widescreen monitors, will the image get stretched or will it appear "normal?" If it will appear stretched is there a way to resize the images so that they do not appear stretched, and add a further window to either side - something like an O/H panel?
I don't have the room for a projector so I'm looking at ways to have a larger outside view. I have also though of using a 27" single monitor as that would give me a larger view and cost less than the TH2GO and 3 monitors.
Any thoughts about a larger image would be greatly appreciated.

A lot will depend on what cockpit setup you have and how close you are to the monitors.
I have tried a single large LCD monitor (37 inch), the picture was "stretched" which was acceptable for visual flying 2000 feet and above altitude but below, and on the ground, the images were unreal.
I am now running three 19 inch LCDs mounted on a common stand connected through the Matrox triplehead DIGITAL version and am totally enamoured with the results.
The two outside monitors are angled about 15 degrees to the center monitor and the reason I emphasized DIGITAL Matrox is that this system has a bezel management control (The VGA version does'nt) which allows one to adjust the "outside monitor images" exactly to compensate for the monitor frame gaps.
This gives my B737 cockpit a 3D viewing impression of the scenery, particularily impressive while taxiing, of one view broken by two window posts, all with perfect resolution!

Everyone has room for a projector if it's short throw or uses mirrors.
