Recently I was given about 40 computer monitors, a few thin clients and a beat up, potentially dead dell poweredge 2500 server..
Immediately I wanted to use the monitors to construct a sort of video wall if you will. The catch is, instead of playing a video file, I want to add all 24 monitors to my PC or use a RaspberryPi cluster to run all of them at once.
The end result i'm looking for here is to have a computer capable of streaming audio and video without it looking too terrible, using 24 monitors as seemingly 1 display.
Initially was going to rig them all together with 4 monitors to every 1 slim client, but than I realized my PC probably doesn't have the power to host all 24 monitors on one GPU.
If it were a single monitor, the resolution would be 4320 x 11520
Would a RaspberryPi Cluster be able to support this kind of thing? What about using the PC for operating system, but using the Pi's as a GPU? Is this even possible?
Edit: I would like to use it for real time applications like surfing the web, running a program or two, and some live graphs. Maybe some other applications like temp readings, FPS, and live stock readings.
