Rendering for a kiosk
on Jan 15, 2019 at 5:22:10 pm

This is kind of a weird one. I'm trying to output some simple animation in a .wmv format.

I have the spec sheet which says the dimensions should be 1152x864, however; when the file is played on the screen, the graphic is cropped.

Anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to correct this? I'm also attempting to contact the sign company, but thought I'd check here as well...

According to the sign controller it is 168x96 not 1152x864 (I can see the pixels it most certainly is not 1152x864). Looks like the sign controller is set to scale to fill, which is why you are getting cropping.

Export a copy at 168x96 and it should play correctly.

Looking at the spec sheet the image matrix is 7:4 while the "display setting" is 4:3. My conclusion based on the result would be that 7:4 ratio image is what they are actually showing.

I've run into specific digital signage systems that give you the odd pixel sizes.
Some I got away with doubling the actual number and their systems auto-filled and felt it was better looking that if I sent the actual 1:1 size.
Maybe its just in my head :)

Wouldn't surprise me. There are a lot of digital signs that are. . . just not set up correctly. Seen several that use a standard video resolution output that is stretched to the size of the board.

I'm 90% positive that the 1152x864 4:3 resolution is the desktop resolution of the device that is playing the content, which is relatively common for something running headless.
