    I'm looking to set up a display of what I believe is called a video wall. I need to have 4 TVs (2 side by side and the other 2 stacked on top) I need to have the projected image split between the 4 TVs. Can someone point me in the right direction on what devise I need to make this happen.

    Thanks in advance-

    if you google iiview which is an iviewdata company you will find the iVw4 or the iVw9 which is a standalone videowall controller allowing for you to display your content on either 4 or 9 screens. I purchased the iVw4 m aximum resolution of up to 1920x1200 per display. iView provides the controller box that drives the display over multi-screens.

    iVw4 is compatible with any brand of LCD monitor and suitable for large display applications in large advertising, medical imaging, simulation inc. flight, radar, gaming etc.., shopping centres, public gathering locations, fairs and exhibitions, sporting or music events.

    Good luck !!

    Here is a great article section I found at Multi-Screens.com (A beginners introduction to Multiple Monitors)

    The Three main ways to Setup Multiple Monitors

    1) You can buy a pre-manufactured multi-monitor computer. The best place to purchase a multiple monitor computer is at:
    Multi-Monitors.com. They carry a multi-monitor computer line called SUPER-PC that can support from 2 to 16 monitors.

    Multi-Screen Computer Systems

    Multiple Monitor LCD Displays

    2) You can get a USB to VGA Adapter, or USB to DVI Adapter that will allow you to add an extra monitor to your computer
    via any USB2.0 Port. You can also add multiple extra monitors by using multiple adapters. This is a great option for viewing
    documents, surfing the web, using Microsoft Office and many other business tasks. This is not a good option for intense
    graphical situations such as HDTV, Blu-ray, Gaming and 3D / CAD Workstation applications. For those types of scenarios,
    it is highly recommended that you purchase a high-powered multi-monitor workstation or a Matrox Dual or Triple Head2Go.

    Multi-Monitor Adapters

    3) You can replace or add an extra video card to your existing computer, depending on how many monitors you wish to support.
    Although this sounds easy enough, this is a rather complex solution for a beginner, especially when trying to find a compatible
    graphics card. For this reason, I am going to write an entirely seperate post on that topic and will link to it here, very soon.

    Multi-Monitor Video Cards

    Once you have your multiple monitor system set up and ready to use, you will need to enable all of your monitors in
    your “Display Properties” Control Panel. Here is a great link to a complete and animated walkthrough of how to enable
    your multiple monitors in Windows.

    How to Setup Multiple Monitors (Instructions)

    This is what it will look like when you are done:
