Dual 80" LED display

So I've got a bit of a creative conundrum. I am replacing a 6-screen (46" each) LCD video wall with two 80" LED TVs in my company's lobby. This idea came from my boss... and I'm alright with it, but am struggling to come up with a way to best utilize two of these giant screens. This is in a lobby area, so there are plenty of opportunities to get creative, but I don't know if I'm going to try to run simultaneous videos, or use one for video and the other as digital signage, or what. I would love to hear some ideas.

Also, I am looking to figure out a hardware/software solution to DO simultaneous feeds... such as a person on the video could walk from one screen to another, or one screen is showing some stylized text corresponding to the other screen's images and video.

I had a mac mini going HDMI to a splitter and then out to the 6-screen grid, but those screens were programmed by their installers to only show a certain percentage and area of the screen... so I'm not sure if the same tactic would work for the 2 huge screens... plus I know that would halve the resolution on each. And can we run the simultaneous feeds from the mac mini? Thanks for any guidance or creative ideas!

Re: Dual 80" LED display

nVidia has a great solution for controlling upt o 4 screens if you want a lot of creativity. Otherwise, a workstation class graphic card can easily handle two monitors - and you can use software to get any effect you like.
