Using Multiple Projectors


Recommended Posts

I wanted to use a few different projectors in different windows of my house. I also want these to play different videos at different times. The only thing I can come up with is to have a projector coming off of the computer and projecting the video that the LoR software is outputting. That will take care of one window. The other windows I was thinking of using Ultra Projectors and loading the media directly onto the projector. When I want that video to play I will just have the LoR controller power on the projector. The Ultra Projector should automatically start playing the media on its flash memory. Same with the other projectors in the other windows.

Am I on the right track here? Is there an easier way to do this?

If you are wanting to do it the way you are thinking, you will run into a couple of problems. First of all, the one I have always goes to the menu when it is plugged in, even if it has a video ready to go. And on top of that, you have a start up time for the projectors, so you'd want to create an animation sequence to give the projectors a minute or two to warm up and get ready to go.

What I would do is this: use one computer for your show, and that'll take care of 1 video, and then use another computer and set up dual screens on it if you can and then you can run two projectors on it, and set up an lor show that runs the same time as your other LOR show, and have the video run on one screen, and the set up the second video to run on another screen. You can look into getting that video to start using the Edit>Windows Command. That's how I would do it, a little more complicated, but something that would probably work better once you get it figured out.

Just my 2 cents worth

I use an ultraprojector for Halloween (aka talking bust). It works fine for that, and I use it outside without an issue.

It will be bright enough for a small (window sized) screen, but not bright enough fo something much larger.

It also runs a little lower resolution, but they include a link to software to downgrade your video to their resolution.
