Our trucks have on-board generators to power the screens. There is a built in sound system – perfect for movies and making announcements.
Monster can take:
HDMI, DVI, VGA, DP, Composite, SDI
Total dimensions for BOB (single sided truck)
1280×512 px – 22×9 shape
910×512 px – 16×9 shape
370×512 px – rest of space (could be side or whatever) The sign will automatically scale the input – so a feed can be just full size.
With Scaling, 16×9 stuff looks good without a “sidebar”
You can use the space however you want – I use a 16/9 size and then “the rest” because it is easier to make videos.
Total Dimensions for Max (3 sided truck)
910×512 px – 16×9 shape for the sides
512×512 px – 9×9 shape fro the rear sign
We can take most types of files
If you are going to give me videos to load into the sign, the sign likes MP4 the best (it will take all the standards except Itunes video)
Jpegs are best – if I get them early enough I will change them to what I need.
The truck can also do video as well, there is an onboard sound system for things with sound.
A lot of people are comfortable with powerpoint which I can also use.
When creating stuff, remember it is a billboard so text should be BIG and as BRIEF as possible. I tell people to make what they want, put it on their screen and go to the back of the room. If you can read it and looks good from 10 feet away you are probably ok.
