hi im looking for a touch screen monitor for my future car monitor unit.
the actual screen would need to be anywhere between 5.0 to 6.0 inch diag. plus a slim border if thats even possible.
i have looked at lilliputs and the smallest touch screen they have is a 7.0 inch diag monitor, which is way to big for the location i plan on installing.
thanks for any advice or links to sites that have what im looking for.
cool i thought i was the only one who is looking for a smaller screen.
there doesnt seem to be any maker who believes there is a market for smaller screens.
im not sure why tho.
video screen not a computer monitor...you'll notice the difference the second you hook it up.
There are quite a few smaller screens out there but not really for the general public more for manufacturing. Looking forward to seeing what you guys can dig up...
Of course you missed the AvionicsLCD website. Quite a few options there. Somebody on these forums ordered the 10.4" (Hellraiser I believe), somebody else try to get the 3.5" but was told that that smaller one is not that bright for a car application. In between they have a 5" model, and a 6.4 and a 6.5" model.
The specs are great, all of them have VGA, DVI, RCA AND S-Video input. Some of them are exceptional, super highbrightness with AG treatments. The 5" viewing angle is amazing. They're good enough for a Learjet or the Eurofighter, so they must work well in a car environment.
But they're not cheap, but certainly they're seem to be more reliable than a lilliput.
I don't see the problem being 4:3 really. Some of them do need minimum order quantity, not sure which. Some members have bought from them, so they definitely sell one sample unit. It doesn't hurt to ask.
However, they are expensive, no doubt.
The Avionics LCD screens look great....thanks for the link. Two issues for me 1) 4:3 - my space is height restricted not width so I need widescreen to maximize the real estate available and 2) $360 seems a bit high for a 5" touchscreen.
There are companies like Densitron who sell to OEM's but I am not able to find any final product.
Will keep looking.
949...please report back if you have any luck
