Zeeshan Ali Khattak developed the Video-Whale Project, which assembled a group of Red-Hat GNU/Linux boxes into a wall of video. The Video-Whale Project is an implementation of a video wall which exploits the combined power of Gstreamer and Xinerama. With it, four monitors are controlled by one machine, and a LAN of four machine controls a 16-monitor video wall. It comes across as a very interesting implementation of low-cost alternative technology to meet needs of the hardware-constrained, resource-poor but talent-rich Third World.
