    Hello Martin

    Just purchased Light Factory, thanks for the great software and the discounted price for us.

    Quick question, when setting up Light Factory, I noticed that there was a setting for a Video/Media output.

    Is it possible to assign more than one extra video output?

    or alternatively, can we output a "trigger" to another PC to display the multiple video outputs?

    regards

    Tabor

    No sorry. Its a fine line to not become a media server.
    LightFactory will only support 1 video output.

    I am looking at the same thing, I have a option of upgrading my resolume from avenue to arena (to get full media server features) which is a Eu700 solution or get arkaos mediamaster express, Eu800. both of these offer features like multiple video output and projection mapping.
    another slighty cheaper option US$300 is to use a Matrox triplehead2go external box as long as the mac will support the resolution [table][tr][td]Maximum DisplayPort Resolution 1[/td][td]5760x1080 (3x 1920x1080) 2

    Just found this project called ether-dream that may be a good option board that can be controlled by OSC or DMX
    http://www.ether-dream.com/userguide.html

    it may be just for controlling a laser though as it does seem to be IDLA centric
