[PD] Multiple videos on different Screens with gem

The hardware setup is the following:
2 FireMV 2400 pci express cards. Each card has 4 outputs. (didn't
choose the hardware setup, only have to work with it...)
Basically i need to have 2 setups:
- Play 5 different videos on 5 different screens
- Play 1 ultra-wide video over 5 screens (4 outputs on first card, 1
output on second)
Is there any chance this will work (performance-wise) ?
I havent really started working on the patch yet, that's why i
thought i might consult someone
with more insight/experience with gem.
