Three 65-inch plasmas, 18 different sources of content. Overkill or awesome? Electronic House tours the home of one New Yorker whose idea of media center involves watching every news channel known to man -- at once!
This isn't the first time the homeowner has fed his television obsession. In his previous house, Electronics House reports, he had set up 12 tube TVs and a video matrix to do something similar, but it was nothing compared to his current set up.
The homeowner can choose among feeds from up to 24 different video sources, including 18 cable boxes (three of which have DVRs), three DVD players and three Mac minis. The sources are routed through an Extron matrix switcher and an RGB Spectrum picture-in-picture processor that multiplexes them and allows six outputs to each of the TVs. He can view 18 sources -- or 18 different channels simultaneously -- with six per screen or one large picture in the middle and with six options shown on each side.
As if that wasn't enough boob tube for one man, there are 11 total around the 2,400 square foot house, including in the bathroom, home office, bedroom, and what looks to be the foyer. We have no idea how there's enough worthy content to watch. We'd love to have access to his Netflix queue, DVR library, and media servers to see just what is on his playlist.
