    You can build PC using a video card with 4 video outputs. It is possible to find a video card with 4 HDMI outputs, but those are quite expensive. You can find a card with 3 HDMI ports for a very reasonable price and it also might have additional (different) video output, such as this one: https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Windforce-128-bit-Graphic-GV-N105TWF2OC-4GD/dp/B01M6Y671T/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1513383543&sr=8-1&keywords=GIGABYTE+GeForce+GTX+1050+Ti+DirectX+12+GV-N105TWF2OC-4GD+4GB+128-Bit. There are also cards with 4 display ports or you can combine 2 video cards with two video outputs each... if that your thing.

    Alternatively, you can go with something like that: http://www.aopen.com/us/shop/products/digital-engine-de6140

    There is no really special hardware for that... it is just not typical hardware for a common user. All you need is a PC with some sort of 4 video outputs. After that install the OS of your choice and Rise Vision.

    Thanks, I appreciate the info.

    So if I wanted to alternate between showing different content on each display and using all 4 as a single display, would I just schedule a playlist with presentations that alternated between a full-screen placeholder and one with 4 placeholders?

    You can certainly do that, but keep in mind that player is able to show only 1 presentation on all the connected displays, 1 or 4. Basically, in 2X2 1080p display arrangement, you must be playing 2160X3840 presentation. If you wanted to play 4 different presentations on 4 display video wall, then you must place them into one single large presentation. You can use premium RV feature - embedded presentations and do just that or re-create existing 4 presentations within a single presentation.

    I also wanted to remind that pixel count here is critical. A lot of people start getting 4K displays and wonder why their 1080p content looks so small and fill screens only partially. Presentation resolution must match screen (single or combined) resolution it is being played on. But I am sure you know about that.
