I want to set up a special training room in the gym I work for, but being mostly a software guy, hardware is sometimes a mystery to me.
The idea is the following: have 3+ displays showing videos of how should exercises be performed, and have people in the class wearing Bluetooth-enabled heart-rate monitors and show their heart-rates on a separate display.
I was wondering what the best hardware for this would be:
- I've done a lot of research, and it seems that one computer can only support up to ~12 Bluetooth devices connected at once. It seems I could have multiple Bluetooth adapters connected to one computer, but I couldn't find any consensus: could I then connect 12 Bluetooth devices for each USB adapter? I have no OS constraints at this point, but have a preference for MacOS or Linux. Would that work with either?
- I'd need to connect to ~3 displays to stream the exercise videos. Each display should show 3 separate videos. Since there are many exercises and they could be paired in any way, this means that each screen is going to be playing 3 videos at the time, min. resolution 720p. Assuming that I can't change that, what kind of hardware would I need for something like that? Would I need to add additional external GPUs for instance?
So, these are the only two requirements: OS and even budget (within reason) is not an issue. Any pointers?
