Different 360s to one screen

My friend owns a gaming business and was wondering what he needed to do to get all of his 16 xbox360s to send the video to one screen. Example: He is running a halo 3 tournament and would like to put the leading persons screen on the main big TV behind the front desk on the wall, while not interfering with the players/other screens. (like a switch or something he can hit and choose the screen to put on it.)

Kramer do a 16 port HDMI switch (VS161HDMI) that'll do the trick (about $800) plus you'll need a splitter for each xbox so you can run one cable to the players tv and another to the 16-way-switch - Apogee do the HDMISP2B ($80).

Total cost is gonna be about $2000, but hey, if you can afford 16 xboxes and 17 tv's go for it.....

He allready has a 16 port HDMI swich for the rig, so all he needs is the spliters, and also i guess a 16 port receiver too?

I think you miss understood. He already has the setup you described. He wants to be able to run all of those consoles to ANOTHER TV. So he can show the leader playing the game on that TV.

he just needs to connect all the xboxes to the splitter i mentioned then one output to the players tv and the other output to the 16-port switch, then the output on the switch to the 'leader' television screen.

That way each player can see their own game and the 'main' screen shows whatever xbox is selected on the switch

[16-port switch]<--------[splitter]------>[players tv]
[main TV]

imagine the above diagram except with the other 15 xboxes all connected to switch via their splitters and youve got what your mate needs.
