jcbrig00 Posted October 28, 2011 Report Share Posted October 28, 2011 I've got some experience with Watchout using a single projector onto a curved surface. The presentation has been running with the occasional tweak for 2+ years now. Now, I am being challenged with revamping the space with 6 x 42" LCD displays. The content will be 6 1080p streams running simultaneously. I am building this installation from scratch so I don't have to use existing hardware. I've looked into the VisionTek Eyefinity 6 card mentioned in the sticky, and the FirePro v9800 card, and I know running the 6 displays from 1 pc is possible. But I am unsure if a pc, even with top specs, can run 6 simultaneous 1080p streams. Would it be better to break it out to two display computers running 3 displays each? Or can I build a Core i7, SSD RAID, 16GB RAM Monster that will handle the streams stutter free? The funds aren't really an issue nor are the content formats. I will be getting the source files so I can encode to whatever will run best. I am really hoping someone out there has experience with this type of installation or challenge. If you don't perhaps you know of another forum or venue that also addresses watchout display installations. Thanks in advance for helping out! FYI I have read the stickies, and searched the forum. I have tried to do my due diligence before humbly asking your assistance! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
