Yes, I'm glad we are on the same page here. :)

I think I will work on a demo that's like the sign that you see at a
money changers. Just printing the various currencies clearly.
Information that the Web platform should dutifully fulfil. Though of
course I want it work on any sized screen. Another consideration is
panning the screen smoothly up and down as to show more symbols.

This is my setup http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nla5SsWCSyQ

You mean https://play.renewchannel.com/ ?  I suspect you are catching
it at the wrong times. It's basically turned off at night IIUC. It
works on Firefox and Chrome for me. I have nothing to do with this
company and I don't agree with the way they are going about Web
signage, but it's definitely interesting.

I prefer to work through simpler use cases than the ones listed upon

I'm currently based in Singapore, whereabouts are you Sangwhan? There
are lots of DOOH deployments here in Singapore and in Malaysia and I'm
observing them. :)
