TV Time table Board - repost

The project is aimed to develop a piece of software that will behave as a dynamic time table to be shown on a flat TV screen.

The time table will show a series of events and some images.

The supported resolutions must be from 720p to 1080p with both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.

The hardware that has to be supported is TV stick with Andorid 4.0 and up (Mk802II is reference) or RaspberryPi.

The software has to be configured via a a config file or a web interface.

The software shall be able to resize picture and text according to the resolutions.

Path of config file and images must be editable.

Color and fonts should be editable in the config file.

The screen is divided in 7 areas according the the image and the size of those areas is in the config file in percent.








Area 1 start from top left corner and has is lower right end at the 40% of the orizondal resolution and 20% of vertical resolution

Area 2 start at 40% of the orizonatl resolution and ends at 60% orizontal and 20% vertical and so on.

There is no need to handle the overlap of the areas.

The resize can be done with the graphical interface and "handles" , in that case the resize step has to be 1% and the size in percen must be shown.

The text and images will be sized automatically to fit in the proper areas.
