I was talking to a buddy who used two flat screen panels turned vertically and connect a pc to it. The only thing this thing does is stream movie posters all day long.

Now I do not have the money to spend on two panels like that but would a bigger digial picture frame work? I found 24 inch digital picture frames and was wondering if there was a way to turn it vertical and load a punch of movie posters on it.

was the only thing I could find. Let me know what you think or any other ideas.

Why not just use some cheap LCD pc monitors, same concept as the frames or tv's but much cheaper.

There is software for windows to turn the orientation of the display. On a Mac it is built in to the display options. But there is a much easier way. Just rotate your poster graphics.

Also those photo frames are way over priced. Search craigslist for used LCD monitors. I eut you could get a 20' of under 100 bucks. It will give you way better resolution than a photo frame.
