Dynamic Dining Experience with Ultra Wide Displays

Date: 4/20/2015 12:00:00 AM

There are many sea view restaurants near the San Francisco Bay area which offer a contemporary west coast dining experience. Our customer was looking for displays which could be used to feature video of San Francisco Bay. The view captured in the video is the same view of the restaurant customers see outside the restaurant. The installation is unique in that it takes a day-long time-lapse and then slices it up into multiple slices, compressing the video into a kind of landscape puzzle. Restaurant customers can witness all the activity that happens daily on the bay, but it's mixed and compressed so it forces a more conscious consideration of what you're viewing—perfect for a dynamic dining experience.

Application Requirements

Because the display need to show super wide panoramic images of the landscape, the aspect ratio also needed to be super wide. Moreover, it needed to be high resolution enough to deliver stunning sea views in order to offer the best viewing experience from any angle. What's more, the light-weight and slim design was able to display both portrait and horizontal modes.

System Solutions

Advantech DSD-5028 perfectly met the customer’s need. The monitor is designed with a 16:3 aspect ratio which can easily display the panoramic seascapes captured outside the restaurant. DSD-5028 supports Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) which scales Full HD content to fit into 1920 x 358 resolution automatically without distortion. The outstanding slim and light design also benefited the customer with efficient space saving and installation. The DSD-5028 offers a high brightness of 700nits and a wide view angle of 176°(H) / 176°(V) which together guarantees excellent visibility under semi-outdoor environments from any direction. Its multi-signal interface of VGA and DVI and wall mounting support provided the customer with easy installation and integration with additional box PCs.
