    Video wall

    We are going to have a few monitors going spare after the Summer hols, and one little project being discussed is to create a video wall.

    If we had 9 screens (a 3 x 3 'grid') we'd have to have 9 computers, 1 for each screen, or is their gadgetry out there that could do this for us?

    I know nothing about this sort of thing, so some clue would be good.

    Thanks.

    No you don't need 9 computers, in fact I think that would make it really hard to do. Is it something like this :Wall Solutions you are looking for? If so, then a specialist graphics card in a reasonably powerful machine will do the job nicely.

    But isn't that just going to split one signal to 16 screens and treat them as 16 individual screens?

    A couple of ATI eyefinity cards in a single machine would give you up to 12 screen outputs and plenty of graphics power, you could easily play most modern games across the whole screen array.
    ATI Eyefinity Technology
    Wetware ATI Radeon HD 5800 Eyefinity with 24 Monitors
    AMD Eyefinity Multi-Display Technology In Action - HotHardware
    For visualisations of data this would be very impressive.

    Here are some more methods of implementation:
