    software to manage video to multiple projectors

    I am currently looking for a software solution which will allow me to control what is displayed on multiple projectors in our main hall, The setup consists of 3 InFocus projectors plus 1 monitor which are all controlled, at the moment with a duel core I5 3Ghz, 4Gb PC. What I want to do is control what happens on the projectors while viewing the user interface on the monitor, so this is 4 monitors in total.
    I have been testing some software called VidBlaster which is intended to be used for video production which is overkill for what I need and is very resource hungry, I have also been looking into presentation switchers which I think is closer to the mark of what I want.
    Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing and if so could you please advise on any good software.
    THANKS

    Have a look at monitors anywhere all though you would need 4 vga outputs.

    A proper presentation matrix would be the best thing for the job from the likes of Crestron or Extron but they aren't cheap.

    Hi Binz

    what do you want to display on the projectors, and do you want all the source material coming from the computer or is it say cameras as well. There are hardware options but if you want all the sources to come from the pc then that knocks them out.

    Software options there are two that i would recommend, ScreenMonkey (free or paid) and WATCHOUT | Dataton | www.dataton.com (paid for). for this optiuon you would need for graphics card outputs

    If you can give more info on the sources for each screen (and what connector they have ie hdmi, vga, phono, bnc, sdi) that would be good. Also an idea of budget.

    Thanks

    Anthony

    I would second the recommendation of Screenmonkey. It's very powerful and flexible and the free version may be enough for what you need.
