Hello,

The Car Dashboard Demo Sheet notes that the LCD Display is WVGA:

Thanks for answering.
However, I mean that which format has been used to convert the images in your demo? PALETTED4444,ARG1555 etc. which one?
My images don't look as good as yours, in color transition, white dot pixels appear.
Best regards.

Hello,

We will have the Car Dashboard Demo at electronica 2018 Munich, if possible come visit us there!
The source code should be available after the conference.

There are several different conversion options, which can provide different quality options to the user, these are explained at the the following:

We also have a new 'EVE Asset Manager' which will allow you to convert images and test the different options available:

The Asset-Manager looks very interesting!
My virus-scanner at home puts a file named flash.exe or somthing like that under quarantine though.
I am certain that this is a false positive as the installation works without any issues on a different machine with a different virus scanner.
