$30k mega build! NEED ADVICE

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a high end client wanting something out of control for his Master Closet! He wants 18 projectors that will all work in unison 99% of the time, but here's the kicker. He wants to be able to use each one separately as well! These projectors will be rear firing and shooting to his walls and ceiling. He's going to walk into his room and say "I'm in the jungle" and the room will turn into the jungle, speakers and all. What I need to do is build a rig that can handle 18 1080P projectors as one unit or 18 separate ones. This is why it has to come out of one tower. I was thinking something similar to Linus' video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lThX7UovKCc) but, this isn't a gaming CPU and we're using 18 projectors... How about an Intel Xeon processor and 4 GeForce 2080ti and 1 1080ti cards, ASUS Z10PE-D8 WS (or similar).... Or am I way off track for something like that? Thanks for the advice!

judging by the tone of the project, the hardware you think you need to do something like this, the fact you went to a forum with seemingly no game plan. 

 

 

i think this is another dream setup sort of thread. 

 

also, you just need 3 of these puppies:

a solid GPU for renders. get some PCIe split cards for ease of use. get an 8 core 1900x and done.

if its not for gaming and only 1080p why not just fill a EATX with gpu's clearly budget isn't a problem xD

I've never built anything more than a few gaming rigs for friends, using newegg haha. I can put a computer together and take it apart. I went to school for Computer Science, but this is insane haha and it's going to be way too much fun. Thank you for the info, I'm going to look into what you said and see if that would work.

@GoldenLag explained it in detail way better than i did xD. go with his idea. for the voice command stuff it sounds like a coding job which is way out of my league. maybe he can pay someone to write him an AI lol

there is most likely open source voice recognition software he can use to do what he wants. 

 

a project like this is mostly time consuming, its not very hardware demanding. 

 

 

edit: im also just calling out that the project is most likely fake as a person who has been charged with doing this sort of project would most likely know what he is doing and have a reasonable gameplan.

Are these "VisionTek Radeon 7750 2GB GDDR5 6M (6x MiniDP)" high quality though. Literally nothing can go out, money isn't too big of a deal if these aren't "the best". They look perfect though, I just don't know much about them.

would be sort of hardware dependant if he wants a jungle that moves tho ? and yes it's most likely never ever going to become a reality lol. if i were handing 30k+ over to someone id like them to have at least 100 serious custom builds under their belt.

they are specifically made to output to multiple displays. most card dont support more than 3-4 displays at once. 

 

there could be a worry regarding tearing between each set of 6 displays, but to avoid that you would need quadros and display sync cards. (not sure if AMD has something similar). 

 

 

you would also be having 1 main GPU handling all the rendering and these cards purely acting as displays. 

 

 

 

edit: https://www.amazon.com/ATI-FirePro-DisplayPort-PCI-Express-100-505746/dp/B008MHAMT2 

 

this is the GPU, and you would need to look for some open source software to make the cards play nicely as a single unit.

For gpu you should probably be looking at something like the Nvidia NVS 810 with 8 displayport outputs.

 

You will want a workstation level motherboard to house the three gpu required to drive the 18 displays. This likely means using an HEDT platform with sufficient PCIe lanes, (Not all Intel HEDT cpu have sufficient PCIe lanes for good multiple gpu support.)

 

Lots of custom software likely required to make the thing work seamlessly.

 


80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

$30k is just for the rig, it's a $300k room with much more A/V equipment.

We have a long time to get this thing together, but I imagine lots of R&D will go into it before we're able to install it. I'm looking into everyone's suggestions and see what makes the most sense.

are you just making up numbers or did this guy win the lottery and have no idea what hes doing lol. 300k AV room. even with the best of the best i can come up with atop of my head doesnt come close to 300k

These are real numbers 😂 and I know it doesn't make sense, unless you're in the industry.

"hire a professional" best advice you're gonna find here considering the insane budget you/he have. could get the guys over at Dolby to hook you up bigtime with that kinda granola

well you would still need 3 cards. so id just cheap out and save 400$ per card using the AMD solution. 

 

you know, to be cheap

But this is the craziest build I've ever had the chance to do... Doesn't it sound like fun to you? It sounds like a blast to me. Now that I have a push in the right direction, I can do a bunch of research and get everything figured out.

technically all you need to get the displays working it open source display wall software and 3 display cards and 1 rendering card.

what industry is that ? you can't just throw huge numbers at a project and expect it to work xD. there's a reason people get paid to install and figure out how to do AV installations xD it does sound fun but it also sounds like id be liable when inevitably it all goes to hell because i have no experience whatsoever in doing what i've been hired to do lmao.

 

best of luck i expect a update once its installed.
