Military Monitor Memories of Maritime Maryland
Tenell and Brian recently set up shop once again at Navy League’s Sea-Air-Space Exposition, from April 13th-15th. Booth 2605 was arrayed with General Digital’s signature ruggedized, specialized, and customized flat panel LCD monitors.
Perched along the shore of the Potomac River at National Harbor, Maryland, the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center plays perfect host as General Digital meets with United States Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard personnel to discuss our ongoing efforts to provide them with monitors and display peripherals that perform constantly and consistently.
In honor of those who serve our country with unflinching dedication, Tenell and Brian donned the uniforms of these maritime defenders and thanked the sailors, Marines, and Guardsmen for their invaluable service. The United States Navy remains General Digital’s largest customer; therefore, exhibiting at the Sea-Air-Space Exposition makes perfect sense. Their incessant demand for ever-evolving equipment keeps General Digital always incorporating cutting edge technology into our products and services.
With each trade show, we attempt to show a little of what we have done in the past as well as our current innovations. Helping to make booth 2605 pretty this year was our own trade show trooper, the 8.4″ Barracuda, which continues to dazzle the crowd in its fully decorated fish tank as it remains completely submerged for hours upon end. Our 19″ Saber RackMount monitor made its Navy League debut, boasting compliance with MIL-STD-901D, Grade A and Class II Lightweight Shock requirements. With credentials like those, it’s easy to see why the Saber 901D was along for the ride!
There’s probably not a movie in cinematic history that does not look good on our 52″ Titan Standalone, which showcased our commitment to large format monitors and digital video signal integration, made all the more noticeable as Tenell and Brian switched between viewing movies and playing games like Sports Champions 1 and 2, and Motionsports Adrenaline. They also dragged out a transit case full of goodies: the 20″ SlimLine Lite II with CAC reader; the 19″ TwoView 2; the 17″ TwoView; and the 17″ SlimLine 1U with DVD drive. Rounding out the bunch was our 17″ SlimLine Lite II, impressive in its own right with the smallest footprint in the rack mount industry and fitted with a CAC reader, demonstrating the ease with which General Digital is able to include peripherals that add to the performance of our rack mount products.
After three days of non-stop exhibiting and dazzling the crowds, you would think that Tenell and Brian would pack everything up and head back home, right? Not these travel troops. They shipped most of the equipment back to Connecticut, but left enough to visit some customers in the area. In fact, during the trade show, Tenell snuck out and paid a visit to Lockheed Martin to keep abreast of their programs’ needs and to discuss a new program for the Australian Navy. After the show, the pair also stopped in at Raytheon and Northrop Grumman Maritime Systems (formerly Sperry Marine), both in Virginia.
Where are they going next? It sounds like the California coastline is beckoning and these guys are sure to answer the call!
