Hello. I am looking for a basic hardware or software solution for switching between multiple laptops to a single projector. I am working with 3d projected set design and need to smoothly transition from multiple video sources to a single projector with only basic transition effects.

Economical helps.

I'm a computer guy as well and open to ideas that involve building my own box.

Thanks.

Is your projector input HDMI, SVGA or composite?

The problem is not switching but actually doing a dissolve which is a more complex operation. I’m guessing because you’re using it live on stage will probably be leaving this option. This is the least expensive HDMI switcher that can do an overlap dissolve that I found. Most are in the $2000 range. Hope that helps!

Thank Ray. That's a reasonable price for what we are needing.

P.S. I very much enjoy your Facebook posts, both the show related stuff and your socio-political stuff. I joined the world of circus 6 years ago as magic ringmaster as well as management/ artistic director and it is the best thing I've ever done. I'm looking forward to doing live shows again, and I'm sure you are as well.

Take care.

In our Worship livestream we use Roland VR4 hd. We moved to this from sd Roland Vr3. We love these products.

Many are going with Black Magic ATEMs and love those.

We prefer the Roland tactile controls and the fact that the Roland does so much processing before it hits the laptop. It even has a small audio mixer with reverb built in.
