4 Channels of synchronized HD!

Am setting up the system for the work of Michele Theunissen (A South African artist based in Australia). It's a four-channel video installation using full HD video. She shot it on 16mm, digitized it to full 1920 x 1080p HD. So that's four screens full HD video projections playing in sync. Will be using 4 networked Macintosh Pros to handle the heavy-duty pixel crunching required. Gotta be the first HD video installation in the country. It'll be set up at MCAD, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design at the ground floor of the College of St Benilde, the weird crystalline building on Vito Cruz. Opens April 30 this coming Thursday. They're showing a Lav Diaz film at 2PM, cocktails at 6 PM.Dunno how many days they can rent a suite of four projectors. Anybody interested in the video installation better come to the opening April 30. ;-)
