2.4" Oled screens controlled through jitter

Hi!

I’m currently looking at small (< 3") color displays to show video
on. I’ve ran into this : http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/
product_info.php?products_id=8623#
I have no idea though how to connect this to a source, though it
speaks of SD memory cards which can store animations etc.
Is there anyone out there that has an idea of where to get such small
screens, and especially how to send moving images to them?
Are there such small screens which have e.g. onboard firewire,
component video, … ?

Any info is welcome.

grtz.

no way to send this module high bandwidth input, it declares itself as a
standalone smart module with its “Built in 4DGL graphics library functions
such as: LINE, CIRCLE, RECTANGLE, USER BITMAP, BACKGROUND COLOUR, PUT PIXEL,
IMAGE, VIDEO, etc.”
it has serial input, which is good, and mybe its possible to “share” the
microSD card with another platform, but looks slim.
sunnyside, its well documented and the module maker is known, mybe they can
help you choose a better module. good news it will probebly be much cheaper,
bad news you then need an additional controller between the oled and the pc.

please, update..

Allright. Thanks for the heads up! I’m not really familiar with
electronics so at first glance it looked good.
Question now is, are there any other small displays out there which
can handle video in an easy “plug and play” way… naked ones,
without buttons and casing?
