Split Windows screen for different outputs

Hi

A prospect asked me whether it would be possible to spit a Windows screen into four equal parts in order to display different content in each part.

One would display a live video stream, another would display results, the third might display a Powerpoint slide show, and the last might display sponsor messages

The idea would be to reproduce this screen onto a larger video wall

Can one do this solely by using software or would it be more advisable to use four separate computers to generate four separate outputs ?

thanks
yann

4 separate computers is also a great idea so long as you have the spare laptops or better still PC tower and the space.
You can use a video extender to send the wireless  video or the program to a particular screen
