Hi guys, do you know if it is possible to have 4 projectors connected to 1 pc to project the same pc in-game screen on 4 projectors’s scren to place 1 on each of the 4 sides of a rectangular shaped play area?
What is the hardware needed for achieving the above ?
I would like to surround my play area with panels to be able to move in any non vr pc and console games while being able to always face a screen no matter where I turn around
@MarcoBalletta you need something like these pieces of software below.
Here is a program called omnidome and the guide/manual.
If you want to connect several projectors for a DIY cave or Simulator setup, I hope you have a very fast setup, IE 2080 or higher. If you use 720p projectors, one 2080 or 1080 TI would be fine. Hope this helps you out man.
Hi @VRGIMP27 . I am going to read and get back to you. Thank you so much! I have a msi 2080ti trio on a i9-9900k with 32gb of ram at 4100 mhz
The video and pages u shared look pretty advanced.
Another option I was thinking was to just set 4 projectors. Splitting the hdmi signal in 4 , to feed 4 projectors with the same signal and then the 4 projectors would output the same image on 4 different 150" screens positioned in a rectangular shape in my room. Would that be easy to do ?
Also, my play area is about (71" by 130") . What screen sizes would make sense for moving in this space and be able to tun toward any direction to look at 4 panels ?
No. I just tried with only 2 projectors and 2 panels and both were not mounted properly. I have ordered 2 stands for the 2 panels and 2 tripods for the 2 projectors.
Before i spend more money for 2 more projectors and 2 more panels, i need to figure out if the idea is doabke with the 2 cheap projectors i bought.
The problem i think i would be facing with these cheap projectors i have , is that they need to be positioned at a certain distance from the panels and with an angle that would cause that i would block the light emitted by the projectors.
I am afraid that for a cave idea i need projectors with wide field of projection so that i can put the projectors closer to the panels that way i would not be in the way of the light projected by the projectors
The idea is to create a square or rectangular shaped play area with 1 projector covering each side of the play area. I really do not mind if it is not a 4k quality setup. I care that I would move through my play area and have the game play always in front of my eyes, because I have a way to actually walk in games (console gameand any pc game) instead of clicking buttons to play in these games. I can try to resemble a roomscale type of gaming in games that have no room scale
I am not sure if the nvidia sorround I would be able to get the game play spread on 4 panels set in a rectangular or suqared set up.
It for sure would work for my 6 dof sim racing rig , with 3 panels.
For the 360 degree view of the game while in game, I would use the cinematizer hedtracking or captoglove sensors, to have 360 headtracking in the game, so that when I turn, I turn in the game play
@Heliosurge But I am just replicating 4 times the same image (game footage) on the 4 panels.
the 360 degree is about me turning physically around in my play area while in game the 360 degree turning is achieved with the cinemizer headtracking that rotates my vie 360 in game, like moving the mouse
