Here is the mounting of the bracket with the TFT display and the HDMI video controller for the HolomodSP Kit. Although all these pictures and the instructions will be included in a User Manual that will detail the entire installation and configuration process, I am advancing the instructions for mounting the bracket with the screen.
The whole assembly, as seen in the images, is very compact, robust, lightweight and easy to assemble and install in the pinball.
While the graphic designer is still working with the videos, I finish some tests with electronics, programming and installation. There is not much left, to be able to offer the complete Kit, with the 5 or maybe 6 first videos, the rest of the videos (22 in total) and the firmware updates can be downloaded from the Github of the project, free of charge.
1.- All the components of the assembly, black acrylic bracket, 10.1 inch TFT screen, HDMI controller, screws, spacers or nuts and round velcros for fixing the screen to the bracket.
2.- Detail of screws, spacers and velcro.
3, 4, 5.- The acrylic bracket has a protective film to prevent scratching, remove it as shown in these pictures.
6, 7.- Pass the 4 screws through the holes of the bracket and fix them on the other side with the spacers or nuts included in the kit.
8, 9.- On the other side of the bracket fix the HDMI video controller board, with 4 screws screwed to the spacers. The Kit could include nuts instead of spacers.
10.- Appearance of the bracket and the TFT display, with the HDMI video controller already fixed to the bracket.
11, 12, 13.- The kit includes 4 pairs of velcro to fix the screen to the bracket. Join each pair of velcro and separate the film from one side of each pair, to fix them to the screen. Velcro already have the necessary adhesive on each side, you just have to remove the protective film.
14.- We set the 4 pairs of velcro, as seen in the image. We lift the protective film on each of the 4 velcro, to fix the screen to the bracket.
15, 16.- The bracket has holes, on each side, which mark the center of the bracket. These holes will be a reference to place the screen as centered as possible. However, when fixed with velcro, we can always remove the screen to be able to center it better, if necessary.
17.- Our screen bracket assembly is already completely assembled and ready to be fixed to the pinball under the playfield, using 5 of the 6 screws that we will obtain when uninstalling the original hologram support (keep those screws to fix our bracket)
18, 19.- Screen-bracket assembly, on the underside. The two cables, included in the kit, HDMI cable for video signal, and power cable are observed. In addition, the kit includes plastic flanges to fix the cables to the bracket (there are a few holes for that purpose), as well as to fix the wiring under the playfield to other cables of the pinball, to achieve a clean and reliable installation. The installation pictures in the pinball, I will provide later, and in the User Manual.
