DIY seamless multi LCD surround setup.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Has anyone come across someone who has posted results a multi monitor setup who has gone beyond merely removing the plastic bezel? I'm referring to taking off the metal casing as well, like so: http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php/19657-Building-a-seamless-lcd-display!

I'm curious how much border, if any, LCDs have configured in the panel once you remove everything but the LCD panel itself.

At 3:43 of the clip, it looks like the glass panel has a border to it, but it is thinner than the metal casing, so minus bezel and frame would be a thinner gap.

Ran across a clip of dismantling a laptop lcd, at 2:16 shows it running while disassembled in which it appears to have no border, displaying right up to the edges of the panel: http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/26/hack-your-monitor-and-3d-glasses-ensure-ultimate-privacy/

Seems there's a market for custom cutting lcd panels:

I'd imagine it'd be possible to get the borders trimmed off a panel for flush seams in a surround setup.

Still searching to see if anyone has gone over DIY cutting, like DIY laser cutting:

Or use a laser cutting service, no idea what they charge:
