Currently our school's black box is using my personal, 4yr old MacBook Pro to run Qlab for audio/video. We've only begun to venture into this realm, but have the green light to make a purchase for next fall.
I love the convenience and stability that I've had with this system but am trying to make a purchase that will last several years and allow us to incorporate more visual aspects into our productions. House is about 40 x 60' and seats 160+ in its largest configuration.
I can foresee several projectors and additional audio maxing out the space. My plan is a quad core MacBook Pro with highest level of graphics card that comes standard. Should I be looking at more? What about external equipment to accomplish these goals. I'm primarily audio but am continually learning with this space.
Thanks in advance,
