And if you display traditional poster on TV mounted in horizontal mode there will be big blank areas on the side ai guess. And then I don’t know if any residential TV that comes with a mount to install it in portrait mode ?
The link I posted for PEC series has built in video processor etc , do we still need to have a small PC attached to that display ?
I never said to put the TV in Landscape mode, I would have figured you would be mounting it in Portrait like everyone else.
Almost all TV mounts are able to hold your monitor in a landscape or portrait configuration. Most of the bolt patterns are perfect square, therefore rotating your display 90°
should be no biggie. If your bolt pattern is NOT a perfect square, most universal mounts (even the ones with a flat plate that mounts to the back of the display) have flexibility in the bolt pattern.
Monoprice is a good option for wall mounts. I went with one of the "Digital Signage" mounts (LINKY
) because it mounted closer to the wall than most. Measure the bolt pattern on your display and find a mount that will accommodate it.
As for the video processor vs small PC.... you will need a small PC. I am using a VORKE v1 mini PC, but most of the PC Sticks will work (like the one mani quoted above). Processing power is minimal for the Movie Poster software to work, BUT storage space is probably the most important concern. If you use a PC stick, make sure it will accept something like a microSD card for storage expansion.
