Hardware & Technical

Niio works with all screen brands, sizes and types (we call this “screen agnostic”). Your screen does not have to be a SmartTV. If you already have a quality consumer TV screen or commercial-grade digital signage screen then you are good to go! If you would like to purchase a new screen and are looking for recommendations, see our next question.

You can buy any screen you like. We can recommend a few options for stunning commercial grade screens such as this 85” Samsung and this 86” LG screen. 
For home or small businesses, you can find great screen offers for around $500 USD.
