One Mac Book Pro, 3 different movie clips, 3 different projectors
on Aug 13, 2011 at 10:53:15 pm

Hi, I'm a FCP editor and musical DVD director from Rio. As I'm also a photographer, I'm setting up a 6-photoartist collective show that will last 45-days in a gallery here. I have to project three different 10-minute Quicktime movies simultaneously to three Benq MS614 projectors. Any ideas on what software/hardware combination I need to do it from one single MacBookPro?

Hi Mario,

The simplest, and likely cheapest solution, would involve a copy of ProPresenter and a Triple head.

I'm assuming we are not talking about a blend?

Hi Vince thanks a lot
I checked the Triple head site and it suits me perfect. I've already ordered it. But I think the Presenter won't be necessary, since I could start/loop 3 videos on QuickTime player and present them in 3 different projectors, right?
best from Rio (almost as beautiful as San Francisco)

Nope, you can't. The TripleHead "lies" to the computer, presenting itself as one single triple-wide monitor (3840x720, for example).

If you don't want to get Pro Presenter, you could loop all three movies on the same very wide slide in Keynote, or create a single very wide movie with the three movies placed side by side.

Thank Walter, Thanks Vince
I like the triple-wide movie idea.
Fingers crossed
