One Laptop Four Projectors Which HDMI hardware to use?

Post by highstreetpictures » Wed Feb 20, 2019 00:44

Streaming in realtime multiple film clips through layers/advanced output to four projectors for an installation/performance.

All projectors will need to either split one film clip to fill the space or each projector will stream its own clip.

I have looked at many hdmi hardware splitters such as the GoFanco 4x4 matrix hdmi - but i can't tell which will work with resolume advanced output.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. many thanks.

am I looking at something like the DATAPATH Fx4?

the projectors are not lined up or close to one another - each projector is rear projecting at different angles.

Yes use a Datapath x4 or Fx4.
Give it a UHD 4k output from the laptop, this is then split into 4 x HD outputs (or whatever you require for your projectors) by the Datapath, then warp/position each section as you require in advanced output.

Datapath for sure. What laptop are you running? My razer with a 1060 max q was okay running 4k out with 36 layers of rotating images, I wouldn't do it again though lol
