With a lot of cropping, it's doable. It's pretty claustrophobic though.

Now that's what I call pretty good, Morgan! - I didn't think the gravel and headroom could be retained, - well done!


Edit!
OK, - I fell for that one!

If you could do it with pivoting LCD screens you could get the ratio closer... 3:2 (1.5) isn't 16:9 (1.78) but it's closer than 8:3 (2.67)... Heck, even 9:4 (2.25, or 3 portrait screens) is closer...

BTW Jim/Prolific, this just happened, one of the designers was showing some customers around the office and they LOVED the five screen setup, thanks!

Morgan, that's an old (and very bad) photo. Shouldn't the new version be able to give you the black bars or is that already in the correct aspect ratio?
Why not switch this topic to the Dual (and triple) head support ?

We have many discussion about it before, as well as many pic post.

Here's my trial to make the fish swim across screen before

DrFish, I like your setup, so neat! now I only wish they are all LCD screen.....or stretch the MA across the two side screen, but the middle one as normal... ha

You are welcome to use attachments or host images yourself on your own web server.

To remotely link an image, use the {img} {/img} tags (changing the curly braces to square [brackets]).

Outstanding work Jim.

The widescreen format gives the aquarium an even more realistic look.

Time to pipe the aquarium into the living room Vega

It wasn't a secret, Cliff, he wrote that he cropped it. Unless I am missing something else.

There's only one thing I could do to top my own 5 monitor setup... I like it!

Edit: That's a 107" diagonal my friends...

WOW, DrFish....it looks sooooooooo cool.....
What kind of projector did you use? it's so clear and sharp(if the paint on the wall could be more smoother, that'll be even better)

Um, James, smoother wall? If you take another look at that picture you'll notice that "unsmoothness" being present in all of the image. It isn't the wall, mut rather a grainy image due to the fact that Doc's camera isn't overly happy about taking photos when it's this dark.

Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Järvafält" as the latest addition – Go have a look and tell me what you think.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

It obviously looks much better in person... It's amazing in fact, the projector can only do 800x600 but if you're sitting around the table you can't even see the pixels... The camera that I used to take the pic is a junky one from work (640x480, saves to floppy), even my own camera is better...

OH ya, I've overlooked....it's the camera's problem indeed....
Tiny, I like your new name Avatar Assistant

DrFish, is it possible for you to take another pic of that using better camera next time? this wall projection is soooo cool...

Sure, I just got here for the day, but I'll try to remember to bring my camera in tomorrow... It won't look much better though...

Away from the multi-screen stuff for a sec...
If anyone remembers I posted that MD rebooted my 2k box. I've now worked out that it was due to using the Nvidia 40.72 drivers (which are a bit over a year old) and upgrading to 53.03 fixed the problem. So upgrade before trying MD if you have 40.72!
