LCD Monitor Product News and Innovations
Designed to meet several military standards (704D, 810F, 461E, 462, DO-160E), General Digital’s 5" (diagonal) Smart Multifunction Display is well-suited to helicopter and fixed-wing applications. It will feature an sunlight readable LED backlight, EMI glass, heater glass, a rugged enclosure, and PowerPC-based drive electronics. Optionally available will be NVIS compatibility for use with night vision goggles. Data will be accepted on two ARINC 429 channels and the software (DO-178B, Level A) will validate and generate the display page, which, in turn, will be presented to the pilot in a graphical format. A built-in light sensor can automatically adjust the display brightness, enabling the pilot to concentrate on more important matters. In the design phase is a 10.4" model, as well.
General Digital™ is in the early stages of engineering a slim profile, touch sensitive, widescreen 24" LCD monitor with integrated power supply. The 300 nit LED backlight ensures consistent brightness acrosss the display face, while the SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) touch screen improves user interface. The modified Saber Standalone also features standard VESA mounting capability, as well as a built-in, front-monted speaker. This commercial-/industrial-grade monitor is slated for release in 2011.
Digital™ is developing the industry’s first IP-addressable
LCD microcontroller, which will forever revolutionize the way
our customers manage their global distribution of LCD monitors. The Tracker
designed specifically to provide our technicians with access to
Calibration, Configuration, Control and Correction of an LCD monitor,
all via a web driven interface. So long as it is connected
to the Internet, our trained technicians will be able to monitor a
flat panel display, make adjustments and diagnose any problem areas.
This last point will save costly shipping and repair charges, as repairs
can be made in the field. Stay tuned for further developments on the
Tracker 4See suite. Download the PDF

Digital™ just shipped our first SlimLine
Lite II™ with an integrated
KVM switch. A KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch is used to connect
a single keyboard, monitor and mouse to multiple computers or servers.
At a customer’s request, we integrated a 4-port KVM switch into
our SlimLine Lite II’s optional rack adaptor and power supply
assembly. The resulting product now provides a rugged human-machine
interface that allows the operator to control up to four computers
by simply switching from one to another.
