    I'm trying to merge to outputs from two macbook pros to one display. i'm wondering if its possible to do this just off the bat with minimal work or spending. or if its possible to route one into the other to be picked up as a source feed and sent from the second mac pro to the external display.

    i'm using a vj program called resolume arena and maybe also if its possible for syphon to maybe pick up the other output and route it from the first laptop to the second.

    50.813669°, -2.474796°
    Two options I can think of:

    1. Hook up one MBP to the monitor, then use Screen Sharing to show the other MBP.
    2. This is more obscure, but my old 24" Dell had multiple inputs with PiP capabilities. Cheap dual view, but the PiP window was probably too small for most work.

    hmmm idk if that will work both mbp will have midi controllers connected and both will be firing at full capacity most likely. both MBP running resolume. and controlled by separate operators displayed on one screen if possible or a way to make it work to one output.
