We are doing a meeting in October that will utilize three screens across the stage each projecting a standard def video file that is in sync with the video on the other screens (for example a light trail may animate from the left screen across the stage to the right screen).
Does anyone know of a system that is designed to handle this?
In a perfect world we would be able to load the three quicktime files into a machine and then cue them as if they are one video.
As long as the show is pre-programmed to a timeline (even with pauses, jump to cues, or switched in and out between Live Video IMAG coverage overlayed on a background, etc), then have a look at Dataton's Watchout and AVStumpfl's Wings Platinum (rental/sub-contract out should be possible). These 2 handle multidisplays (beamers, monitors, plasmas, whatever) arranged/spaced out however you want.
There are also event-based hardware controllers, but I'm not familiar with those. Look through a few posts back by Bob Bonnoi in this forum.
