Bluefin Introduces Daisy Chain LCD Screens

Bluefin International has developed a series of screens which can take a single display and transform it into multiple separate areas of a single video feed by daisy-chaining included HDMI connections. To put it simply:

We take this single image and expand it across multiple screens without distorting or blurring the picture. This feature is available on a number of eye-catching and unusual sizes

What is Daisy Chain?

This Daisy Chain solution allows for multiple monitors to display content from a single media source.

This Daisy Chain solution allows for multiple monitors to display content from a single media source.

Let’s get to the specs!

A number of sizes and aspect ratios are available at launch, such as a 19.0’’ 1920x360 screen which can support up to twelve units from a single 4K video feed, or a 21.0’’ 1920x132 screen designed for use on shelf edges for retail advertisement and digital price tagging. Each screen can be programmed to draw content from a specific area of a video feed with a simple text-file based update.

The Daisy Chain series is equipped with Bluefin’s V Series player to allow individual looping video content to play on each screen without the need for an external box.

Daisy Chain screens are compatible with BrightSign’s Series 4 family of players to allow the layout of content to be easily constructed, managed and modified.

Daisy Chain screens were designed to work as a cost-effective solution to retail endcaps, shelf-headers and digital price tag solutions by maximizing the area of coverage a single player can provide.

Daisy Chain screens are available on a number of sizes and resolutions, including the 19.0’’ 1920x360 or the 36.6’’ 1920x290
