Question

Multiple Monitor Slideshow Software

The people in my department and I are stumped about a good program that will manage our multiple monitors. All we really want to do is have a slideshow run. The problem it seems is that most the solutions we find are cumbersome or only manage a few monitors. We have 5 vertical monitors. Ideally, we'd run a slide show. Each of the 5 monitors would run a group of slides and then switch to the next group of five. Does anyone know of software that will meat our needs. Obviously googling has gotten us no where. In the past we had used QLab but we really don't want something as complicated as that.

For slideshow why not the Raspberry?

Program not boxes

@R. Proffit our monitors are already hooked up. We're having trouble finding software to run the slideshows.

We wrote our own.

Since about Visual Studio 2008 you could control where your app went to what screen. Sorry that I can't share our app, it belongs to the company.

http://superuser.com/questions/720901/windows-image-preview-on-a-second-screen-with-a-different-resolution gives you the simplest of solutions. Run IRFANVIEW on each screen. Use AUTOIT to automate the whole thing. Figure any decent IT person to take the morning to make it work.

Maybe the reason you can't find the app is there are so many ways to do this that there was never a need for an app?

And even simpler. Just AUTOIT without any other app.
