i am planning to use vvvv as a replacement for max msp and a reason to switch to more powerfull windows hardware.
I am mainly going to playback video on a 4 screen installation and also have a 5th screen for the interface. (maybe some videomixing too, also some parallel video recording from usb to composite adapters)
what would be the best way to connect 4 screens (i thought the 5th screen would be best connected via a IGP (intel HD or AMD) ?
The cables will be arround 20-30m long and will run allong the cables for high power theatrical lighting. I thought that a VGA connection would mabe the most reliable, but there is no graphics card with 4 vga outputs anymore. The screens will be HD but the signal does not necessarily have to be in HD resoltion (for my puroses)
Also what hardware needs will i have for 4 different videos (maybe rapidly switching) playing at the same time (possibly also recording sequences from usb2composite adapters)?
is vvvv the best choice for this anyway ?
greetings and thanks for every answer
