Soft and Hardware design for a 8 screen interactive video installation. The installation runs on one computer with 4 video cards with 8 video outputs in total. Completely synced playback of the video. Controlled by two max-msp/jitter patches that allow super fast switching of the video sources. A fire wire webcam is used to detect movement and determine interaction.

Hardware
