The *spark + d-fuse mixer
Sometimes prayers are heard. Remember the poll we did where we were asking “What do you think is a reasonable price for a modern video mixer that has the ability to mix VGA and send out an video that spans over 2 or more screens?”. A saint named Toby Harris has modified a conference kit and built a controller for it so that it’s possible to mix two VGA or DVI sources and output to a Matrox TripleHead2Go, which means that you can make a multiscreen projection and mix content from two computers. This has been possible to do earlier, but at a huge cost. Toby is negotiating with the manufacturer of the original box and he is planning to assemble enough orders to put it into production. His estimated price for the box is… ta-da… somewhere in the $1000-£1000 range. At the moment the manufacturer is busy with a trade show. We just have to tap our fingers impatiently until deal is sealed and Toby is ready for pre orders. Read more about the mixer on Toby’s website.
