NEW PRODUCT – HDMI/VGA/DVI Display – 7 Diagonal – 1080×600 @Raspberry_Pi #raspberrypi

NEW PRODUCT – HDMI/VGA/DVI Display – 7 Diagonal – 1080×600. Yes, this is an adorable small HDMI television! We tried to get the smallest possible HDMI/VGA display with high-res, high-contrast visibility. The visible display measures only 7″ (17.8cm) diagonal, and the TFT comes in an enclosure with HDMI, VGA and DVI inputs. The display is very easy to use – simply connect the included 12VDC adapter to the 2.1mm center-positive DC jack, then connect a digital video source to one of the ports. Voila, a television display! There’s some little buttons on the front that let you enter a menu system for adjusting brightness, color and contrast. It auto-detects which input you have and switches to that one or you can ‘select’ from the menu which to display. It does not come with a stand but there are four ‘mounting thread’ holes in the back in a 75mmx75mm square and you can use three M4 screws (one hole is not used) to attach it to an enclosure.

To demonstrate it, we took some photos with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any device with HDMI, VGA or DVI output. It will not work with a device that only outputs NTSC/PAL/SECAM or any other ‘analog’ signal.

For use with a Raspberry Pi we suggest editing config.txt to set “hdmi_safe=1″ output for best results (otherwise, the Pi may not ‘recognize’ the HDMI display and revert to composite output)

A 12V US-prong power adapter is included we also powered it with 9V and it worked fine.
