I am looking into making a PC for running CasparCG in connection with our LED wall used for fairs, broadcasts etc.
I am new to CasparCG and am still struggling to navigate through commands etc. But I am slowly beginning to be able to get the results I want. The goal is to use the software for running our LED wall in connection with fairs, company broadcasts etc. At the fairs I want the wall to show several videos at the same time and be animated in and out. The videos are controlled by iPads around the booth and called by a local website. The wall will run in approximately 4K in the width and a little less than 4K in the height.
At times, I want to run a PowerPoint presentation, Kahoot or similar on an area of the screen. We would therefore need to be able to input a video signal to the computer.
The real question is. What is the appropriate hardware to use for such a setup? I want the setup to be powerful enough to run at least 4-5 videos at the same time, along with a live video. Most of the time live video will replace one of the other videos.
I have looked a bit in the FAQ for minimum requirements but would like a setup that is also good and future proof. What would your suggestions be for such a computer?
Graphic card wise? Motherboard wise? Blackmagic wise?
Thank you very much in advance!
