Today I did a stream talking all about my desk setup! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, but after wrapping up the Reclaim EdTech OBS flex course, now felt like a good time.
The main trick with my setup is it’s designed to work with both my Macbook Pro, which I use for work and of course runs macOS, as well as my gaming PC, which runs Windows. Not only that, but I want to be able to use my dual monitors, all my peripherals like keyboard, mouse, and stream deck, and my audio gear and camera. You can watch the stream archive for more info on what I need it to do, as well as how it all works.
The gist of it is everything is plugged into my Gigabyte M27Q monitors, which switch everything between the two computers:
