Sujet Upgrade your controller with LCD screens - Page: 1

Cette partie de ce topic est ancien et peut contenir des informations obselètes ou incorrectes

I stated in a topic (about the Numark NS7III with three screens and Serato), that my dream controller would be the Pioneer DDJ SZ with three screens supported by VDJ.
After this I got a reply from PachN with a wonderfull solution! Because I don't want to hijack the Numark topic, I now start my own to get more info on this picture from PachN.

Original reply from PachN and reply after that:

You have build my dream controller / setup ! :)

Awesome !!

EDIT: I also own the SX at this moment so I'm really curious how to manage the three screens from your notebook?

I use VDJ also with videos. So this is my current setup:


and if I could expand the setup with PachN solution... I'm king of the world!! lol

Wanted!:

To make it clear, I didn't build this unit.

I just stole the picture from jakovski's thread in the german forum.
He himself found the picture on facebook and is planning to build something like that on his own.

If this setup is not possible.. then I still want to have the PachN solution when I don't use my tv setup (which is more often).
I'm feeliing like a kid in a toystore again !

I am not sure if it possible to have a Video and an extended screen output with separate signals at the same time...

I think the resolution would be the biggest problem. The 7" screens will not have FHD resolution, so linking al these together will not work i'm afraid...
I do have VGA and HDMI output, but I don't think they can give output simultaneously...

If you check your videocard´s setup panel ( e.g. Nvida Control Panel) you will see that you can choose the output ... but whatever is used ... HDMI and VGA usually will display the same signal.

That's a very cool idea!

I know the Nvidia panel, but I will try at home what happens if i connect the vga and hdmi to a (seperate) screen. Curious if they both give output and if I can see them both in my Windows or Nvidia config panel..

give it a try ... i´m curious too :-)

Posté Mon 26 Jan 15 @ 10:29 am
Remember that with VDJ skins, you can make something custom for three screens at the exact required resolution.

Posté Mon 26 Jan 15 @ 10:32 am
I'm so excited now!
If the two laptop outputs don't work, I already have a solution that has to work. It costs a few hundred, but it will be worth the money!

But.... if I have my triple screen dream... Who can make me the skin ? hahaha lol because I certainly can't :p

Posté Mon 26 Jan 15 @ 10:55 am
It would be fairly simple to slice up your favourite skin and make three sections - deck/browser/deck.

Posté Mon 26 Jan 15 @ 10:57 am
Ive always felt Atomix should build something like this, With Vdj embedded so all we would have to do is attach a controller and play

I like this idea too, but Atomix is basicly developing DJ Software ....

Using other video cards in addition to your main card should work. USB cards for example.
The issue may be in the processing power of your PC.
If you are making an all in one unit as that apears to be, then multiple graphics cards on a PC mother board is possible.

I ordered the krämer v-700 yesterday. exactly the same as the lilliput, but cheaper to get it at my frontdoor.
