HDTV as large digital photoframe / crude digital signage
My primary school want to display pupil work on a screen outside classrooms. Initially i was thinking of using powerpoint with embedded photos and videos running in a loop.
Then ithough of using a touch screen eqipped monitor or AllInOne unit to allow the "slides" to be skipped or paused.
Then I thought of using the powerpoint output to series of jpeg's feature to store the slides on a SD card and use it in a digital photoframe there are also some semi touch screen photoframes available
Then I remembered that many HDTV's have a JPEG slideshow feature running from SD card or usbstick. Does anyone know of a TV which will let you combine video and photos in a looping playlist. Cheap but at least 19" in size up to £300 ish???
There are also SD to HDMI media players available but would prefer it embedded into screen for simplicity.
