Hi,

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.

Hope that helps.
