SP-1920 LCD Controller / Driver Board

Includes media playback capabilities
The SP-1920 LCD controller is an interface board converting video signals such as HDMI, DVI, VGA and Composite to the signals required by compatible LCD panels such as from AUO, BOE, Innolux, LG Display, Samsung, Sharp and others. It also provides media playback, image management functions as well as monitoring and control features for the finished monitor or display system. The SP-1920 is supported by a wide selection of panel connection cables and other accessories together with system development documentation, 3D drawings and engineering support for customization.
