We want the panel display for 12 monitors. each monitor will display the picture with 4K resolution and span 1 picture to fit 12 monitors (one monitor display 1/12 part of picture).

is it possible for below configuration. Please help to comment. it is not fast piture. a slow movement picture or video with normal resolution.

1. 2 sets of AMD Firepro 9000
2. display port/HDMI converter (UltraAV® DisplayPort 1.1 to HDMI 1.4 Active Adapter)
3. SAMSUNG (Samsung UN55F9000 55IN 4K 3840X2160 120HZ 3D Quad Core LED Smart TV w/ BULIT-IN WiFi)
4. HP work station, core i5, 8GB
5. your software

Thank you.

You'll need to test this, officially Windows only supports 10 monitors. You can use more, but this may not always work.

You could use UltraMon to stretch a single window across all 12 monitors, but would need to test if this works properly with your specific application.

A video wall processor might be another solution, this takes the output of a single video card and stretches it across multiple monitors.

I think the correct people to ask would be AMD.

Those video cards are $4000 each, and a quick perusal of AMD's website shows each video card can drive up to 6 independent displays using Eyefinity. Are you trying to use Eyefinity?

It seems to me if you're trying to get Eyefinity to work across all 12 monitors using 2 cards, you might be out of luck doing it that way. I've always assumed that Eyefinity only works across monitors on a single card.

Now, if AMD had a multi-card Eyefinity solution, something that could drive 12 monitors across 2 video cards as one seamless display, that seems like what you're looking for. Like I said, I don't think AMD Eyefinity can do this yet, (but ask AMD to confirm that).

Anyways, try Googling for Video Wall Display.

Thank you for your advise. How about if I reduce the monitor to 10. Please recommend again.

and I got information same as you that AMD Eyeinfinity must be on single card.

How about if I devide the picture to 2 parts by half-half, 6 monitors per PC and use special software to devide the picture and send each part to the PC? no resolution reduction.

Is it practical solution?

10 monitors should be no problem, I would check with Matrox, they should support this.

Is it possible with your software?

thanks again.

This will work fine, but you don't need UltraMon for this as Windows does support up to 10 monitors.
