A realty company I work for wants to install a 32" TV in their lobby and have a constantly running slideshow of still shots of homes for sale interspersed with various scenery shots from around the area. I would be in charge of putting the photos on a USB stick and bringing that to the office every week or two.
I know my home Samsung TV can do a slideshow and does a nice job of it. I see that Vizio models have a slideshow function, but details in downloadable manuals say nothing about how it works.
I went to the local store today to see actual picture quality, and the choices I would recommend to them would be Samsung, Vizio, Toshiba and Philips, in that order. In addition, I would only consider TVs with 1080 vertical resolution, of which the choices are limited in this size class.
Have any PFRE readers ever set up something like this for your clients? I would welcome any insights and suggestions.
This kind of slideshow of all the office's listings is very common. Back in 2006, the real estate office my wife and I were in, in Issaquah, WA had a 55" TV in their lobby running a slideshow of all the active listings. It was very popular with all the agents and their customers!
I suggest the following:
This could easily be setup as a service for any real estate office. Make sure you charge enough to cover the time you spend on it and perhaps rent them the TV and Apple or Amazon box.
