Default Multiple screens through one projector!

I have a situation here. I have a presentation related to networks, that consists of 4 desktop PCs connected to each other. There are additional LAN cards installed on them but all of them are busy in connections. I need to display the four screens through a single projector such that all the screens take 25% of the projector screen. Just like a Grid. I should be able to click any one of the four videos and zoom that in. Also I should be able to do the opposite, that Minimize the video to fit back into the grid. This is more sort of CCTV like thing in security rooms. I think I need some sort of a desktop viewer suite. Can anybody help me out please?

i would look into using one computer for the projector display. then connect via vnc to the others. i think vnc does scaling. I would size the windows appropiately and maximize the windows as needed.


or this maybe helpful

Thanks a lot. I too thought the same. I did the following...
I ran VNC server on 4 computers that I need to see. Then I ran client VNC on 5th laptop and accessed all the 4 servers. Then I used a tool called Acer Grid Vista. It created a 2*2 grid for me with the taskbar hidden. So I got what I wanted. You confirmed what I did right? Thanks .
