I would recommend a different setup.
Overall AMD cards are “friendlier” for use with multi monitor setups than NVidia.
Your setup will cost about 1050,- € end user price for VAG Card and MST Hubs.
If you choose 2 x Eyefinity 6 card (CGAX-7856M6) end-user price 285 * 2 = 570,- €
You might need some adapter cables (if you did not already), but still much cheaper.
Will generate 6 x mini-DP output on each card and can run 6 x 1080p @ 60Hz.
So with 2 cards you can run a total of 12 screens in 1080p @ 60Hz.
If you let me know the OS and screens (brand / type) I might be able to advise you also on which adapter cables you will need.
Dear club 3D.
Thank you for the reply, the card looks very good. If I would use converters from DP to VGA, how long could I then make the cable? I would need 30Meter, and will be using high quality cable for this.
I would connect the following projector:
(10 of these running on 1024-768)
And will connect one normal 20 inch screen running 1920-1080, with 1,5 meter cable only.
Do you deliver the cards inside Thailand? Or do you know a supplier here? Else might order them in The Netherlands and ship them over myself. Thanks already
The chance that it will go well is bigger if you would use the HDMI input on the Beamers.
A digital signal will get less signal loss than an analog signal, and they adapter cable is normally also
A bit cheaper. We never tested this with 30 meter cables, but with good cables it should be possible
To go up to 30 meters according to some info I read online.
I would advise you to test with this adapter cable:
CAC-1153 = Mini-DP to HDMI Active Adapter Cable High Quality
We do not have a distributor in Thailand I am afraid.
I do have a contact in Singapore, but he is not having stock on either the VGA Card or the Adapter Cables L
Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do.
Thanks a lot for the input, I will order the cards from Holland and ship them over. Which converter would you suggest if I want to change DP strait to VGA? Any suggestions?
Mini-DP to VGA Active Adapter Cable would be the CAC-1102:
