syncing 3 monitors to one video.
on Nov 9, 2009 at 7:31:37 pm

Newbie here... I want 3 32" 720p monitors to play back the same video, all synced up. Do I get a distribution amp? I got a Mac mini to play the video. Recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, a distribution amplifier is the way to go. Do you intend to use VGA or DVI from the Mac Mini?

The Mac mini has the mini-dsiplay port so DVI to HDMI.

Using DVI or HDMI means you need something more sophisticated than a simple DA. Gefen makes some nice DVI products, and I believe they have an HDMI splitter that might suit you.

Something like this should work?

That looks like it should do it, though I've never heard of that brand.
