Capture TV Across Multiple Displays and Computer

I am designing a system with 8 HD Displays (1920x1080) connected to two display computers (4 displays per computer) and capturing HDTV from a set-top-box via a Blackmagic Intensity Pro capture card in each computer.

 

I was wondering if this setup will allow the HDTV video to play correctly across the 2 display computers or not?

 

Thanks,

David

Just be aware that the capture card will fail with a digital signal requiring HDCP compliance.

All set top boxes will require HDCP compliance on their digital outputs,

and will shut down the digital out since HDCP is not supported by capture cards.

 

If you can find an HD setup box with analog component output,

the Intensity will accept that and anlog does not have HDCP.

Providing you feed the same signal to the capture card in each computer - yes. No problem at all.
