Using a USB monitor as a standalone monitor for webcam? Answered
So...can this be done?
I have a Mimo USB monitor that I'd like to connect to a webcam (sans computer) to use as a viewing monitor. Basically the camera will be used for tele/micro/macro purposes and the image would be sent directly to the monitor. An example would be to attach the camera to a microscope and then use the monitor to view the image, rather than peering into the viewfinder. All this would be battery-powered so that it's usable anywhere. However, I don't have a the slightest clue how to bypass the whole computer thing, as I can't find any info on how the USB monitor works. The Mimo is actually a touchscreen with a builtin video card, so it should be capable of some cool hacking. I have an old usb webcam available, as well as a tiny spycam with RCA out.
Can the USB camera or RCA camera be connected to the Mimo without the use of a computer?
Has anyone seen this done before?
Anyone have any links/suggestions/experience with this idea?
