What do I need to project video synced with Live backing tracks?

The band uses Live for backing tracks and send a click to the drummer.


While these tracks are playing, we wish to have synced video showing on screens behind us.


Can I have this video within Abelton?


What macbook specs do I need?

What other hardware do I need?

Will I need a third party software?

    Live doesn't really have a lot of (interactive) video options, if I were you I'd look into Resolume Avenue (a VJ-program) that's easy to sync with Ableton via MIDI messages: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmhS_dzfULY

    I did this a while ago and it worked out great!
