Multiple displays using triple head and duo head.
by elaine ellis on Jan 10, 2012 at 3:45:04 pm
I need some help with a exhibition I'm creating. Basically what I'm trying to do is run one video, which is the same video on 5 identically 19" screens from one mac.
I have a matrox duo and triple head and wondering is I can run both of them from the same computer or whether I would have to split them between 2 computers, i.e run the duo through one and the triple through another.
sorry if this is a bit vague, but i really need some help.

If it's the same image you want on the different monitors -- exact mirrors of each other -- look for something called a display splitter. These will take one video input, say from your computer, and duplicate the output to some number of ports (2 and 4 port are very common) where you can plug in monitors. This is fare more simple and far cheaper than trying to use many discrete video cards or multiple computers.
