I am planning on purchasing a Mac to be used as a projection computer for theatrical productions.

I am using the product QLab and it allows for multiple projectors to be run simultaneously.

I need one video output for Show control, and any additional outputs would be projectors I could use for the show.

So far it looks like a mac Mini only allows two video outs, and an iMac allows for one output in addition to the built in monitor.

Is there a way I can get a mac with more than two video outputs that is cheaper than a Mac Pro? Or is that the only way I can get more than two outputs.

Thanks!

There's no reason why you need a brand new machine…and have to pay brand new machine prices. Purchase a previous model/used Mac Pro…pop in 4 video cards…and you have 8 video outputs.

Depending on your exact OS and software needs. A first generation Mac Pro can be purchased for $250 bucks. Stock video card will have two video outputs. Add a 2nd video card…and you get two more video outs…which gives you a total of 4.

Problem solved!:)

@JHWelch Never used one of these devices personally but they might be worth a look Matrox Graphics - Solutions - Mac.The Dual Head version drives two monitors if I remember correct;y the other drives three.
