I have a Videowall of 8 46'' screens, now is it possible to controll them from one pc without losing any quality ? (HD)
I saw that ATI has Eyefinity for this, but only for 6 displays, and most of the time they use 24 inch monitors.
You can also use 2 Eyefinity capable ATI GPUs to do the same. What is your budget and the basic specs of the system in question.
BTW, the physical size of the display (46" vs. 24") is of little concern. What is of concern is the resolution the displays will use. Most likely, your 46" displays are 1920x1080. Please include the make/model of the diplays you are considering. You may be able to daisy chain DisplayPort monitors with fewer GPUs (video cards).
He beat me to it. The M9188 is a nice card. It all depends on what you're going to be doing with the monitors though. Streching HD video across any combination of HD monitors will reduce the quality obviously. There's only so many pixels in the source video.
and the goal is : it needs to play a video all day long, no games or something, just video playback.
And what about the software ? let's say i have a ati card and have eyefinity. does it just work if you have the cables right ? because that's an issue aswell, it has to be as easy as possible. The people that are going to use it are not pro pc users.
i hope i have given the right info now and answered the questions.
no it's not like that. The videowall will be presented on a ''beurs'' ( don't know how you call it in english sorry... Something like Gamescom! ). it's not for personal use or something, people will walk by and look to it. The people that are going to build it up are not high-tech knowers. they just build it up and go away to thier next built.
hope you understand it now, my poor english doesn't help alot with it , sorry.
I would go with NVS 450, its built for digital signages which seems to me is what you are trying to do. It does not have as much power as other video cards, but it is extremely reliable, low noise and low power, as well as low heat. Since you are 1 video over 8 screens, you don't need many processing power as well, nor RAM, nor power for the build
