    Does anyone know of a program that would allow us to run multiple digital projectors off of one Mac? Each projector needs to have its own video channel. There's a total of 3 projectors.

    Yeah, catalyst would fit the idea...but not the budget, I expect.

    If this is a desktop mac, could you get more video cards for it, or does it only support one video card?

    The triple head to go will do what you need to do with very little cost. It basically tricks your video card into thinking it has 1 3840x1024 monitor hooked up to it and splits the image into 3 1280x1024 outputs. I used it on a show last month to do the exact same thing and it worked seamlessly. This works if you are wanting the same content split accross 3 screens like a panorama, if you want 3 totally seperate things going on, you will need 3 seperate pcs. The high end version of this is the watchout system by Dataton.
