Multiple Screen Setup

by Beastb15 / November 24, 2012 7:51 AM PST

Ok guys help me out here. I'll do my best to keep this simple without over complicating.
I do a lot of tailgating. So much so that I have a live sound setup just for tailgating (I am not in any way a DJ). Every year my goal is to incorporate 1 more cool feature to our tailgates.

The Goal:
Next year I want to incorporate music videos (as opposed to just music) to the tailgates.

What I Have:
I have a Toshiba laptop with an HDMI out and VGA (obviously) out.

The Questions:
I want to buy several cheap LED or LCD TVs to play music videos.

Is it possible to get 4 TVs in the shape of a square playing 1 image split over the 4 screens? (Kind of like how you would have 2 or 3 screens for your desktop)

If yes, can this be accomplished via the HDMI out or strictly VGA?

Again, if yes: What are the video card requirements for this?

Is there a signal splitter one can buy to accomplish this?

Thanks for the help.
