Look at Parola (http://parola.codeplex.com) and on this thread http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=171056.0

I would say this will do close to what you want and more.

As I said in my previous post, look at Parola if you want to have message on the display. If you just want to treat the 8x8 displays as individual smaller display (independent), then the transformation functions in my MD_MAX72xx library (link below in the repository). Read the documentation for the library.

You will not find examples to do exactly what you want because it is pretty unusual!
