ARCOODA GAUGING INTEREST IN 29 INCH 4:3 RATIO LCD MONITORS FOR SMALL PRODUCTION RUN
Arcooda Manufacturing is currently gauging interest to make a special production run of a 29 inch 4:3 LCD monitors, which will be suitable for older arcade machines such as Daytona USA, NBA , etc.
The reason behind the development is the number of problems machine owners and operators run into when they have to upgrade their screens on machines that were made with 29” CRT monitors. It can be difficult matching current wide screen LCDs with existing arcade machines due to 4:3 vs 16: 9 configuration, as well as video signal mismatches.
Arcooda is proposing this special production run of monitors to be an effective solution to this issue, allowing owners and operators to update their classic arcade machines.
In most cases, operators have been purchasing the widescreen LCDs and making panels to cover the smaller footprint as well as using video converters to upscale the images; effectively sacrificing monitor size for a sharper and brighter picture by retrofitting an LCD screen this way.
Generally most production runs need 100,000 units for economies of scale, however Arcooda has mentioned there is an opportunity for smaller production runs depending on the level of interest. This smaller production run will have higher costs, however, Arcooda is seeking feedback and interest from the arcade industry to see whether it’s viable to bring this product to the market.
