I'm looking for info on how to project onto a 51' by 8' surface.
« on: September 05, 2018, 09:16:03 pm »

We have a  51' x 8' wall at my church that we would like to use for projection.  We want to be able to project onto this entire area.  We currently use ProPresenter.  I am aware of using PP with a Matrox Triple head to go.  The problem with this setup is that with only three outputs and edge blending three projectors, I would only be able to attain an image approximately 39.6' x 8' using 16:9 projectors, if my calculations are correct.  Using a fourth projector would allow me to cover what I need, but you can only use three with PP.  What other software or hardware is there available to help me cover this area?  Or can someone possibly point me to a different forum that will be better suited for this type of question?  Thanks for your help.

Look into a media server, such as Arkaos (among others), or ProVideoPlayer.

Datapath x4 or fx4.  Takes a single connection out of the computer and does 4 outs.  They have several versions depending on what you need for connectors.

I have done power point  upto 6 wide at 1920x1080 with a really high power graphics card.

Content creation and power point at this size has several pitfalls. You can spend lots of time and money yet still have problems. Have a clear idea of what you want to do before spending a bunch of money on gear.

If you can get the width with three projectors, you could black out the top or bottom of the image to get a wider apparent aspect ratio.  You would lose some resolution, though.

 Yeah, I've been looking at that also.  A lot of variables in the LED wall category.  If you have any links to good panels and good pricing, hit me with a PM.  I've got a green light to put this thing together.  Just trying to decide which way to go.  Thanks again
