Cheap alternate to Matrox

This one is for windows users, there is a device called a multi stream transport hub or MST hub, they are designed to take a 4k display port 1.2 input and output a variety of resolutions. It is not as hacky as the matrox gear, but it is limited to PC and limited resolutions, although better than the matrox stuff. It is basically a quad splitter (although there are triple output versions) so it splits a 4k image into 4 HD outputs.
You can get mini display port varieties that should work under bootcamp from your macbook pro, however dont expect it to work without a video card. If your video card supports displayport 1.2 it should work. They are seen as a single display, they will also work fine with the normal display port output. Modified versions of these are used by a very very expensive media server system to support 16 HD outputs from 4 x 4k "screens".
The kicker is the price:
There are some cheaper on Amazon too for the US.
Thanks for sharing. For the 4 output one, here is the link.
Seems that 1/4 output splitting in stage setup is due. @mark
