Hardware Advices?



  • Hi everyone!

    I looking for a multi-screen solution.
    I have a macbook Air and I want to use 1 video (without patch) in 4 outputs(screen).
    My question is what's the best hardware can I have (cheaper is better).
    I think that 2 matrox Dualhead2GO Analogue édition  can be work together but I'm not sure because I'm new in this fantasy world of Isadora.

    Is someone here can help me (like a guru or Yoda stuff)

    Thanks and sorry for my english unfortunatly I'm French.....

    Peace



  • you will not et 4 outputs from 2 Dual head2go units. 4 outputs will be too much for these little computers. If the video is to be the same on all screens then just use a `VGA splitter or most projectors have a VGA loop output and you can just run from one to the other.



  • Hi @Fred and thanks for your quick answer!!

    In fact it's a video with 4 separate screen ,like zapping stuff (Like that: http://imageshack.com/a/img801/3797/c4t4.jpg ).
    Then I change the focus in Isadora (like that http://imageshack.com/a/img837/3789/70f0.jpg)...and it's working pretty well with no latency.
    But I don't know how to output them in 4 differents screen???

    Thank you for your help

  • You need 4 separate outputs like 2-4 graphics cards for what you ask. And that could be done with desktop type of computer.

    The way Matrox -H2Go works is you construct ONE superwide image that Matrox will split into 2 or 3 screens. But you send just one image out of the computer. So no help of using 2 Matrox boxes.
    BTW there is nothing unfortunate being French as far as I know.


  • The only way to get 4 outputs from a MacBook Air is with a Datapath x4 or equivalent. That's a very expensive solution though.
