    multi-projection s-video out

    by Siggi » Fri Dec 15, 2006 11:52 pm

    first of all i have to say that the 2.5 version was a really great step. thank you garagecube for this i really appreciate it!
    for a project i want to use the multi-projection with 3-7 screens and one preview out. i have to use a videomixer witch means i have to convert the dvi signal to a composite or an s-video signal. i could find out that the nvida 7300gt witch comes with an macpro are not able (even with an dvi to video) adaptor to provide a video signal. the ati card are able to provide a pal signal but it's only 1 card possible to there another way ecept to use an expensive vga to video convertor?

    would be great to get any information.

    maybe you should try to mix everything with a data mixer which can accept both video and data , such as that by example : ... ame=vp-727
    So you don't have to downconvert your signal and always keep a data signal for your beamer. 8 universal inputs, 1 preview and a program.

    "is there another way ecept to use an expensive vga to video convertor? "

    That kramer rack is worth several macpros !!! not so easy to setup, if rented. And has only one pgm output... so no real multiprojection.

    Use a vga box on each output ! 80 $/€ for a "working" one.

    Of course, all that depends on what your performance is, so you might want to throw in some details, if you want people to give some useful advice !

    How many screens do you have ?

    Do you need a different image on each screen ? (in which case you don't need several graphics cards, but a 1x8 VGA distributor)

    What sort of mixer are you planning to use ?

    Do you NEED to mix analog video ?

    or you could go for the cheap option like i did

    buy a used dual or quad core g5 and some 256 nvidia cards

    and leave my mac pro at home
