Building a 6-12 Monitor Display from Scratc

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Me and my computer teacher are considering taking apart 6-12 computer monitors or tv LCDs and mounting them onto ply wood and constructing a huge Eyefinity display.

We are looking for ideas on how to power it and how to connect all the displays together. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Power cords and DVI cables...
Can anyone say my teacher and I?

If you have a CF Eyefinity 6 setup you could power all 12 monitors, or maybe tri-fire cards.
Plywood probably isn't the best mounting surface, you might want to try some cross bars built of piping similar to a monitor stand.
