    Hello there,

    I need some help and advice please! I am wanting to set up a 4x projector dissolve on a loop. I am using 4x elmo 252 projectors, I dont have a dissolve unit or programmer yet as I dontk now exactly which I need and where to get it.

    I want my 4x 80 slide carousels all to go 1 by 1 cycling through all 4 projectors in a row, or all at once, it doesnt matter really. at an interval of say, 1 second, less would be ideal but I realise that most of the faders/potentiometers on the ones ive used so far go to 1sec as lowest.

    So, my main question is, what programmer should I use for 4 ELMO projectors? Audio could also be a nice edition but it is not needed. It is for a slow animation for an art show. the projectors will be set up 2x2 on top of each other to make one large square like this:

    |_1__|_2__|
    |_3__|_4__|
    I hope you understand what Im trying to do.
    Any help appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Emil
