NEW PRODUCT – NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 7 Diagonal – works with #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Window-268

NEW PRODUCT – NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 7 Diagonal. Yes, this is an adorable small television! The visible display measures only 7″ (17.8cm) diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board, enclosure and stand. The display is very easy to use – simply connect the included 12VDC adapter to the 2.1mm center-positive DC jack, then connect a composite video source to one of the RCA cable. 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. The display has two composite plugs, AV1 and AV2. AV1 is the default and if AV2 goes ‘live’ it replaces AV1.

To demonstrate it, we took some photos with the display connected to a Raspberry Pi, but it will also work connected to any analog composite-video output such as a YBox or Propeller w/Video out. It will not work with a device that only outputs VGA, HDMI or any other digital video signal.

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

  • Power with 9-12VDC only
  • 320mA power draw at 12V, 450mA at 9VDC
  • Visible display dimensions: 154.5mm x 86.8mm
  • Resolution: 480 x RGB x 234
  • Brightness: 250cd/m2
  • Contrast: 400:1
  • Display plastic case dimensions: 172mm x 114.28mm

  1. I am just posting this to check wether I am human.

  2. That would make a great server monitor for the raspi… hmmmm 🙂

  3. Great timing! I had “search for tiny Raspi monitor” on my to do list this week.

  4. Nice way to teach resistor reading 😀
