Multi HDMI Monitor Support WX9100

I am looking to create a display wall from a Dell Precision workstation and use a WX9100. The location of the workstation to the monitors is quite a distance from the actual wall. To make things worse, the wall is a solid brick wall, and requires extra length of the cables to wrap around the studs. I am planning on running 6 HDMI cables to the displays. Will I need active converters for more than 2 passive DP-HDMI adapters, or can I use 6 passive adapters for them? Resolutions will be 3840x2160 on all 6 monitors.

There is a lot more info you need to provide. Display Wall is a delicate subject.

  • What do you mean by a "quite a distance"? 10m, 50m, 100m, 200m? This is the key question.
  • Do the monitors have only HDMI inputs? If yes, which version?
  • Will you be running 3840x2160@30Hz or 60Hz?
  • Since you plan to have a display wall, I assume you will group all 6x displays via Eyefinity, right?
  • What is your OS?
  • Which DELL Precision do you have?
  • What are you planning to display on your display wall? Using what application?
