I've been on the fence for a while now about the Datapath X4. I've been getting increasingly more work that requires the reliable use of many projectors. I've read the guides, considered the options of multiple GPUs and asked many questions. I know that's not ideal for a number of reasons, as nice an idea it is to plug in a Blackmagic Decklink Quad and run 8 projectors smoothly off my main GPU, it's not that simple.
I can just about build a new show computer that is relatively up to spec for the price of a single Datapath FX4, with just as many outputs (minus 1 if I use a monitor). I can send video over NDI when I need many projectors, and have a new server to use when needed or for backup.
With this thought in mind, what is it about the Datapath FX4 that makes it a more valuable or wise investment? I know that is a circumstantial question, but it seems I can get all that functionality in a brand new computer for nearly the same price. They're just so dang expensive.
Looking for opinions, thanks!
