If you've got a project that needs some vision, then this handy little TFT screen is just the thing you're looking for. It's a 3.5" display designed for analogue video signals with NTSC/PAL driver board. It takes a 6-15V DC input and has pre-soldered RCA connectors for composite video and provides two different channels: AV1 and AV2. Only one channel can be used at a time, and if AV2 detects a signal then it will replace the signal on AV1, allowing for two sources to be connected.

A simple menu system for controlling brightness, colour and contrast can be accessed via the three onboard push-buttons. The control board is connected to the screen via a thin ribbon cable which must be handled with care to avoid damage to the connector.

Whether it's for a Raspberry Pi to bring vintage game emulations to life, or the resurrection of old hardware such as a VCR, this NTSC/PAL TFT Display is going to be perfect for your project.

Tech Specs:

  • Power with 6-12VDC only into onboard buck converter
  • 150mA power draw at 12V, 350mA at 6V

During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Terrence - Bright Display verified purchaser

    This is an excellent product, great colours and very bright even in my very well lit work area. I have tested it with my Raspberry Pi, DVD Player and a cheap HDMI to composite converter as well as a high quality HDMI to composite converter and it has worked perfectly on all units, I must admit the cheap HDMI unit surprised me as it looked as good as everything else on this display. I would highly recommend it for use with your RPi projects. (Posted on 23/11/2014)
