Image-URL-Layout Instructions

The Image-URL layout allows you to render any .png or .jpg image file on your Invisible Screen, provided it has the correct resolution.

This allows you to run a server which serves your own layout and the Invisible Screen will pull and display it.

Choosing an image

The image will be converted to black-and-white. PNG and BMP are officially supported, but JPG is known to work as well. The image resolution needs to match the resolution of the screen: 800 x 480 or 480 x 800.

Configuring the screen

In order to show the image on the screen, it must be served under a http(s) url on the internet. In the companion app, select the “IMAGE URL” layout type. This allows you to enter the URL to the image.

Your device will check multiple times per minute if the image served by the URL has changed. Whenever the image changes, the display will refresh and show the updated image.

If you want to keep your data secret, make sure to use HTTPS and use a long, random URL!
