I want to be able to put two projectors next to each other and then match them up next 2 each other to make one really wide screen but how do i split the video across it. I would like to do it on a mac. Is there a software program that can do this.

The easiest way is to get a graphics card that has two ports on it. I know that works on PCs, but i dont know about Mac. I am thinking that you can do the same thing on a Mac. If you do a thread search you will find a few thread that talk about the same thing, mostly.

I don't know about full capabilities, but I think that the Pro Video addition to Q-Lab might be able to do this with a dual head graphics card.

A media server like a Hippotizer will do this, but probably too expensive for your needs. They blend the image in the middle so the projectors overlap slightly and merge into one; instead of two sharp edges that you have to align.

You either want an NVIDIA video card or a dual head to go.... either way you will either want to run this off a laptop so you still have a screen or a dual head video card plus the splitter. You WILL have a line where the projectors meet, this does nothing to get rid of that. Media servers will take care of that/do the blending for you.

Also, many of the newer large venue projectors have built in image blending software.
