I am hoping to find a solution for an oddball use-case relating to a video art installation. The short version is that we are trying to find a way to support 6 monitor outputs with an MSI creator 15 laptop with 32GB ram, intel i7, which has USB C and A as well as HDMI.
More context, if needed: VLC media player has an option to split one video into multiple windows, and the resulting individual windows can be spread across multiple monitors. We’d like to split a video into 6 windows and then distribute these out to a pile of old CRT televisions (via a cheapo downscaler used on each TV to convert the digital signal to analogue), which creates a kind of mosaic effect. We’ve already made this work in the past with 3 old TVs using a StarTech hub and a mix of displayport/HDMI outputs, each being converted to RCA using cheap dongles to go into the TV. But that was pretty much just a proof of concept and I’d really need to support more like 4-6 TVs using this method or a similar one. As you may gather, quality is not a particular concern, as we’re dealing with lo-fi glitch content here. This setup would only be deployed occasionally, as for daily use we run 3 monitors and have no issues. Any advice would be welcome.
(Secondary question: wondering if the old Startech hub would “play nice” with a second docking station if they were both connected simultaneously. In other words, can I connect two that support 3 monitors to achieve the goal, if there’s no all-in-one solution.) Thanks in advance
