Digital Movie Poster Board - JD SmartHome

Just came across these digital movie poster boards online by JD Smart Home and they look really nice! Does anyone have these installed in their theaters or have any experience with this sort of thing? Any installers using these things? They seem to have a polished look that I wasn't able to get with my DIY version I spoke to the owner JD today and he said that they come pre-loaded with something like 1000 4K posters. Haven't pulled the trigger yet but thinking about it. Thoughts?

If you can't achieve what you want by DIY it is a good option.

My thoughts are cost, and the aspect ratio of the posters mean there's a lot of cutting off of the sides of the posters.

Have you ever considered handing off the frame to a wood shop? I appreciate not everyone can build something but one could build a pretty nice frame,
for a $150 investment in a wood chop saw, and a biscuit miter (and those tools could be leveraged over other projects).

I expect the value might be in the software, but a DIY digital movie poster frame can be a pretty simple and fairly inexpensive project. My simple KISS version of this,
could be a cheap Black Friday 1080P hdtv, a usb jump drive, a hdtv skim wall mount, and a piece of plywood.

The real time suck in all of this, is actually the graphic work poster-wise. A 1000 posters is a pretty extensive collection, but 4K is likely putting a potential limit of posters, if
one wants to avoid upscaling.

As for fit and finish, I actually plan to beat on mine, to distress it a bit. Going for a moody industrial look.

I also wonder if your poster frame is just a rattle can of hammered paint, away from a nice interesting finish?
Or a can of Flexstone? Or any other coating that has a bit of fill factor?
