multiple screens

I am not sure even how to describe this accurately. I have been asked to make a multiple screen/multiple output video. Meaning I a would like to have, for example a person walk from one screen to the other or a word move from one screen to the other. I think that there are two ways to do this. One is to make a very large comp and have it span across to monitors. The other is to have 2 completely discreet files that coordinate with each other and play them back simultaneously.

This is only how I've thought of it. Haven't tested it yet. The playback needs to be easy for a novice to turn on once it's installed.

Any ideas for both the production side and the playback solutions. I don't really know where to begin or even the words to use when doing a Google search.

You may want to post this question to the Live Events forum.

[Brian Charles] "You may want to post this question to the Live Events forum."

I agree... but I'm biased.

Before you post your question, you might read through some results from a search on "multi screen" in the Live & Stage Events forum -- you will find a lot of background information that will prove helpful.

I'll also add that your production pipeline will be driven by your display system, and your display system will be driven by a combination of your creative requirements, your budget, and the physical space for the installation or event. You have to start at the end of the process before you can think about the beginning.
