So itâ€™s been a few years since Iâ€™ve interacted with Max and that was primarily doing more robotics kind of stuff. However, a colleague of mine just approached me about an interactive video installation she wants to revamp and I thought that Max might fit the bill, but wanted to query yâ€™all and see if what she/I would want to do is possible (or if itâ€™s possible but weâ€™d need to use a specific OS (i.e. Windows or Mac).
Situation 1 (Ideal)
Situation 2 (We can live with)
I appreciate any thoughts yâ€™all have.

A matrox triple head to go gives you 2 or 3 extra screen outputs. Render one big jit.window object. say 3 screens wide, the matrox will then split them up.

I’d use a Mac Mini which would give you a two screen output for the back end and the video in fullscreen. I’d then use an Ipad for touchscreen capabilities and create the interface using TouchOSC http://hexler.net/software/touchosc. There’s also Mira which is the Cycling ’74 supported way to create a touchscreen interface with an Ipad but I haven’t used it yet so can’t comment too heavily on it. The way I’ve described would obviously be a Mac way of doing it.
Within Max there’s more than a few ways to achieve what you want to do based on budget and preferred OS though so to answer your general question I think this project would definitely be achievable in Max.
