    You don't say what kind of monitors they are, nor what kind of laptop (and vidcard) it is. This is very important to deciding.

    On a guess though (assuming those are the familiar Composite monitor racks), I would say it is possible, but probably prohibitively too expensive. You'd need multiple adapters/converters.

    Also, what do you mean by "a different picture"? - a different section of a spanned desktop/window? a different independent still/video stream?

  4. USB graphics cards (not good of HD video). Or Matrox DualHead2Go, TripleHead2Go.
