What kind of television do I need for my digital menu boards at a BBQ restaurant?

You can utilize your existing televisions! You can buy any brand of televisions if you need them. It doesn't matter if it's a "Smart TV" or if any additional features are required. Any type of television will suffice. We recommend 43′′ and higher for size.

You'll also need a media player in addition to TVs. This is a little device with dimensions of 4′′ x 4′′ x 1′′ that connects to the internet via WiFi and to the television via HDMI. That device is what will wirelessly download and display your BBQ digital menu board.

How many objects can each TV display?

You can list up to 27 menu items per TV if you merely want to show them without any text. Anything beyond 30 becomes visually busy, and your BBQ digital menu board may become difficult to read.

If you want to use photographs in your BBQ menu, we recommend putting roughly 23 things per television. This will enable for adequate spacing and easy reading of the menu.
