Video Wall FOSDEM 2010

The above video-wall consists of 6 19" LCD screens controlled by 6 beagle boards working simultaneously. The video is divided into 6 tiles.
Using 6 beagle boards divides the work done by each board by 1/6. This helps the beagle boards decode a video stream in real-time.
The video stream is 1080p.
Additional Information can be found here:

Using Beagle Boards on video-wall proves a handy tool in order to decode video, because of its size and the fact that it consumes very little amount of power.
Beagle Board's decoder can be used to get real-time video stream. Beagle Board is used as a display controller here.

It might be possible to decode video stream from the network.
