Hi,

I work for a company and we are trying to deploy something simple in our workplace. We want to get 4 Large TV 65-80 inch (in 4x4 or 1x1x1x1), 1080p is fine and hook them to a PC for Cable TV (CNN, CNBC) and use it for announcements via powerpoint.

What is the best solution here. I mean do I get 1 PC with 1-2 VC and SLI or Crossfire the computer and run 4 monitors via HDMI or is there some type of box or media device that does this? My budget is 20k Which i think should be more than enough.

Any help would be very helpful.

Thanks

You don't need anything super powered an single GPU with 4 connections is capable as there are adapter for DVI to HDMI and Display Port to HDMI. I'd suggest that.

Hi,

Yes, I was thinking of something with a Decent Video card and Split the Image to 4 TV's any recommendations of VC that will handle 4 TV's at 1080p with audio? Preferably HDMI connections

I believe they want 1 Image across 4 TVs.

Than id suggest probably like a AMD R9 270x or a Nvidia GTX 760 4Gb Since it will be running a high resolution it will be necessary to have a high amount of Video Memory.

I was thinking about going with a 770 however it has 1 Displayport and 1 HDMI port and 2 DVI. How would you normally split it to 4 TVs? I only have 2 monitors at home :(

going from the 760 to the 770 would be a waste of funds. Your only displaying video/flash data.... this ont be super hard on the gpu as it will only use minimal gpu power to display the video feed. The most constraining factor is the high 4kish.... resolution across 4 monitors. hence the gb's . to split to 4 TV's you'd get 2 DVI to HDMI adapters and one Display Port to HDMI and then just the at hand HDMI. Then using nvidia's software you would set up Nvidia surround as you want it.

Awesome, One last question,

What if they wanted to switch to the Cable box for like a closing bell announcement or something, I can ultilize the same hardware correct? Or do i need something special since im getting an HD set-top box with 1 HDMI output and would sound work on all 4 tvs or do i need a independent sound card?
