BOE 48″ Ultra-Wide LCD

We recently connected the BOE DV480FBM-N01 ultra-wide LCD panel with the Digital View SVX-4096 LCD controller board. This LCD panel has a resolution of 3840 x 720 pixels and a brightness of 1,000nits.

This ultra-wide LCD panel module measures 1218mm × 248.2mm × 30.6mm (48″ x 9.8″ x 1.2″) with a viewing area of 47.8″; video signal connection is V-by-One 60Hz.

These ultra-wide screens panels have become increasingly popular for digital signage applications, particularly in transport. The 1,000nits maximum brightness puts this panel in the “sunlight-readable” category so it should be suitable for use in shop windows and other high bright locations but it is not too bright to be considered for various indoor installations. Another area for ultra-wide panels is in vending machines. Using the SVX-4096 it is straightforward to add an automatic ambient light sensor such as shown here.
