Need video Scaler for 3X3 TV Wall
« on: June 21, 2017, 12:44:55 pm »

So far a solution from two video cards out of a Mac Pro did not work. Then we bought a scaler box from eBay for $1100 that was supposed to take the one 1080 signal from the computer via DVI or hdmi and scale it up across my TVs. The box might be bad but it's not working. We could never get more than four of the TVs to work. They are vizio e65-e1 models.

This should be a very simple thing but my partner and I are frustrated maybe we didn't spend enough money on the quality brand scaler box? At this point we just need it to work. It's one 1080 P video source skilled across nine screens although we have six creams now. So we are 3 x 2 with plans to become 3 x 3 if we can get this solution working. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated thank you.

You're looking for a video wall processor.  What is the box you have now that isn't working?  You're probably going to spend a lot more than 1100 for a reliable solution.

A network of Raspberry Pi's is the least expensive reliable way to do that.

This REALLY peaked my interest... Do you have a link to a sw package that can do this on RPis?

We got it working with the box we bought on EBay. Hardware Scaler. Also found a similar solution that uses a 10Ghz Ethernet switch and software scaling with Ethernet HDMI adapters for the TVs.
