So, where ToshibaSucks and I have landed via email is the following:
- 3x1 to 5x1 portrait array
- Desired 17-20 inch panel size, but slightly larger is OK
- 1920x1080 minimum resolution per panel
- Fairly high budget
- Must take HDMI/DVI
- Panel borders are not a critical issue
I have interpreted the following from this:
- IPS panels. Wide portrait mode displays will suffer using TN for the sides since the vertical viewing angle is so bad.
- LVDS interface. While there are some really great eDP panels that would fit this (including some mentioned in this other thread
, the real benefit comes in the form of higher resolution or refresh rate, which the current HDMI to DP converters don't handle.
- Decased desktop monitors are likely to work best here. Since panel borders are not a concern and 17+ inch "good" laptop panels aren't nearly as prevalent, the most cost effective solution is debezelled desktop monitors on a custom stand. This way you also don't have to find standalone controllers.
Does this seem like a reasonable conclusion to draw? Are there any suggestions for small FullHD IPS units that might work well for this application? I am checking myself also, but the community here seems to have a pretty good grasp on "what's what" with monitors.Edited by moddermike - 7/27/13 at 10:53am
