Need to play 3 videos symaltaneously in sync & repeat

Hi there,

I'm involved in a video-art installation. The installation will consist of 3 projectors, each showing a different film. The 3 films need to play in sync and they need to repeat all day. Each film is 5 minutes long. They don't need to remain perfectly in-sync. The sync can slip by about a 1/5th of a second without any harm.

My plan is to use 3 DVD players (each would be the same make and model). Each DVD would be programmed to repeat for ever. If we start each player at exactly the same time, will the DVD players remain in sync for 12 hours?

Many thanks,
Jack

Since they are the same make and model I would think that they would stay in sync. Just use one remote to control all three units and life should be good.

just my opinion... hope it helps...
