I apologize in advance for the length, but want to give as much information as possible…
I work with a band that has a portable video wall behind them. While it works, we would like to simplify/improve it.
Here is what we have:
Several year old Lenovo Thinkstation tower with 2 Xeon, 32GB RAM, Windows 10
1 AMD FirePro W600
6 Matrox DualHead2Go
12 Sceptre 55" 4K TVs
2 Lenovo touchscreen monitors
We are using VirtualDJ to play MP4 videos and need to have all TVs show up as 1 display in Windows. Since AMD’s Eyefinity only supports 6 displays, that is why we are using the DualHead2Go devices. Not ideal (or supported), but it does work. However, it sometimes seems to struggle handling some videos. The TVs are in a 4x3 configuration and are not running at 4K (the max the Matrox allows is 1920x1200).
Besides a new server, I have a few questions about what hardware to get.
1)Could we use 2 NVS 810s and use Mosaic to unify the 12 displays?
1a)If so, what is the best way to connect them?
- 8 displays on 1 card and 4 on the other, thus using only 3 GPUs? Could we then use 2 of the remaining 4 ports on the 4th GPU for non-Mosaic displays?
- 6 displays on each card, with 3 on each GPU to balance the usage? And maybe a NVS 310 for the 2 additional displays?
2)Or, should we go with 3 Quadro P4000s with Mosaic, plus a Quadro P400 for the 2 additional displays?
2a)Is the Sync II card required to use Mosaic with the P4000s?
2b)If not required, would it be needed?
So, there you have it. Am I in the ballpark? Or barking up the wrong tree?
