Default need some software guidance...

Hey guys,

I am setting up a mobile network that is going to be used for data and tv viewing purposes simultaniously. I am going to have one base computer that controls all of the tv viewing and data watch. I need a program that can have one computer control as many as 5 monitors at a time, where hopefully I can switch between tv and data feeds, and possibly have some sort of picture-in-picture that shows both tv and data. The closest thing i can think of that does something like this it video security systems (ie in a casino) . Anyways, let me know what you think or what software can be used. Thanks for the help!

There is a hardware add on that you setup as many monitors as you want.

You have seen this equipment before but probably didn't notice it. Go to your local computer store and look at the monitor section. There is one computer (usually crappy) that is hooked up to show off the monitors. Check it out.

Is that what you are looking for?
