Recently we have been testing Samsung’s 43″ very wide LCD panel. With an aspect ratio of 4:1 and a resolution of 1920×480 this is a great panel for many digital signage applications.
For the interface we used a Digital View SVX-1920 controller. This is ideally suited to a panel like this and to usage in digital signage installations due to its high reliability and range of relevant features.
For the media player we tested with three models from the Digital View ViewStream range, the soon to be released ViewStream 320, the ViewStream 450 and the ViewStream 500. These all worked very well and are available as stand-alone and networked versions.
It works well, looks good and has a great novelty factor.
