Since its release in 2006, General Digital’s TwoView was designed in-house to meet the physical, mechanical and environmental rigors of industrial and military environments.

Our experience supporting Department of Defense programs has taught us the value of designing products with foresight so that they can be manufactured, serviced and upgraded for many years.

The TwoView 2 and TwoView 2 Vertical, though still housed in a metal enclosure, are plenty rugged enough for light military and industrial environments. The TwoView 2 is designed to hinge open to the left or right (factory configured). The TwoView 2 Vertical is designed to hinge open vertically.

IN A CLASS OF ONE

We work with you to configure and build your TwoView monitor to meet your precise needs. Furthermore, we offer a wide range of practical options for you to custom design your unit.

What truly separates our TwoView Series from the rest of the crowd is its ability to provide you with the following benefits:

  • Configuration flexibility with a wide variety of LCDs, video controllers, display overlays, pointing devices, power supplies, slides and enclosures to meet specific requirements.
  • Flawless operation in harsh and demanding environments; e.g., extreme of temperature, humidity, shock, vibration.
  • Long product life cycle. We can repair and/or replace defective or degraded parts with like or equivalent, compatible electronics or mechanical parts.
  • Designed, manufactured, tested and serviced in the U.S.A.
  • Custom configurations with optional components:
    • Compliance with radiated and conducted EMI requirements (e.g., MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-167)
    • Operation in high ambient lighting or direct sunlight
    • Keyboards/trackballs that operate in rain, and survive direct exposure to spilled liquids
    • Extended warranties

RUGGED FLIP-UP MONITORS FOR DIVERSE ENVIRONMENTS

The TwoView is designed to provide its operator with the maximum amount of visual information while occupying the smallest possible footprint within an EIA-310 or 19" RETMA Rack Chassis. Constructed from a combination of aluminum and steel to provide a rugged, cost-effective and flexible design platform, this formidable display/keyboard/trackball is intended for use in industrial and military applications. The enclosures have an irridite coating (conductive anodized) to provide protection from corrosion and improve shielding properties where parts make contact with one another. All external surfaces are finished with a durable black powder coat paint, although custom colors are available upon request. 

The TwoView is intended for more harsh environments, such as extremes of temperature, humidity, shock and vibration. The TwoView 2, in all its configurations, is well suited to industrial environments of less extreme conditions.

The low profile (2U or 3U) TwoView can be quickly deployed for operation from its storage position by sliding it out from the rack chassis on its solid-bearing slides. The displays are then flipped up into viewing position on heavy-duty friction hinges and slid apart on ball-bearing slides. When not in use, the displays flip down into a secure storage position, and the entire unit slides into the rack, allowing more room for personnel to move about.

KEYBOARD & POINTING DEVICE

The keyboard and pointing device are located in front of the dual LCDs, providing optimal hand-eye distance. A vast assortment of commercial-, industrial-1 and military-2grade keyboards are available for integration, with or without integrated pointing devices. Unpopulated space is intentionally left below the keyboard to allow additional customization with potential options such as: DVD drive, Smart Card reader, USB ports, pass-thru interfaces and more.

FRICTION HINGES

The TwoView's display heads are mounted to the main enclosure via three rugged continuous-friction hinges that enable the display to pivot from horizontal to vertical positions. A tubular shaft at the center of the hinge allows for cable routing, which improves shielding and minimizes cable chaffing.

SLIDES

The TwoView and TwoView 2 monitor/keyboard devices mount to EIA-310 19" RETMA racks via a pair of solid bearing slides. For special functionality, custom lengths can be supplied.

Many lengths of solid-bearing slides are available for the TwoView

 Additionally, your TwoView can be equipped with a Cable Management Guide to prevent tangling and chaffing of the cables supplying power, video, etc.

PROTECTIVE GLASS/OVERLAY AND SEALED GASKET

General Digital offers a variety of standard and custom gaskets to augment the performance of the TwoView Series:

  • Watertight gaskets  (e.g., closed cell, neoprene, rubber, single-sided adhesive, double-sided adhesive, O-ring) are installed between the LCD (or overlay) and the front bezel to prevent liquids from entering the enclosure through the display opening.
  • Dust gaskets (e.g., open cell gaskets) are often supplied for monitors that do not require a liquid-tight seal between the display and/or overlay and the bezel, or for systems that use a touch technology (e.g., SAW) that are only compatible with certain gasket types.
  • EMI/RFI gaskets reduce radiated and conducted emissions of the monitor.
  • Dessicating gaskets can be used to prevent moisture/condensation from forming between the LCD and the overlay when exposed to high humidity.

DISPLAYS AND BACKLIGHTS


Display and backlight types
General Digital can integrate virtually any LCD display size/resolution, from almost any panel manufacturer (OEM), into our TwoView enclosures. To assist in selecting the right panel for your application requirements, we have provided a list of commonly used or recommended panels for standard/low luminance, high brightness, sunlight readable and NVIS compatible needs. New display models are constantly being introduced to the market by the LCD manufacturers, making it extremely difficult for us to maintain a comprehensive list. For this reason, we encourage you to speak with a Sales Engineer to share your price and performance objectives, so we can assist you in making the best display selection.


STANDARD DISPLAYS (TWOVIEW/TWOVIEW 2/TWOVIEW 2 VERTICAL)
General Digital has provided a sample listing of some common transmissive displays that are not sunlight readable. Typically, these displays are suitable for applications that are not going to require specialty functionality, such as sunlight readability or NVIS compatibility, and for customers with cost-sensitive budgets.

Standard brightness display types
LCD backlight produces sufficient luminance for use in office, shaded and low ambient/darkness light levels. However, luminance is insufficient to overcome reflected light for use in direct sunlight.


TRANSMISSIVE-ENHANCED VIEW DISPLAYS (TWOVIEW SOLAR)
This type of technology boosts the efficiency of the backlight’s light utilization and minimizes surface reflection of ambient light. It is a transmissive LCD module that produces high contrast images, even in bright outdoor light and direct sunlight. These displays feature a wider color reproduction range than reflective LCDs. Featuring an LED backlight, these displays consume very little power and produce very little heat, making them ideal for integration into fully sealed enclosures, which are devoid of ventilation holes and cooling fans to dissipate heat. They also provide the additional benefit of a wide operating/storage temperature (as great as -30°–85° C), so that they can endure exposure to greater internal ambient temperatures. As a design note, we have found that these panels work best when coupled with an overlay that has an antireflective (AR) coating. Overlays that inhibit transmissivity (e.g., resistive touch screen) or have antiglare (AG) coatings will significantly reduce the panel’s performance in high ambient lighting conditions. Since transmissive displays produce greater brightness from their LED backlights than traditional transflective displays, they are regarded as a better outdoor solution, as they can generate high contrast in total darkness, in direct sunlight or on a cloudy/hazy afternoon.

Transmissive-EVT High Brightness Display Types
T-EVT technology uses the high brightness/efficiency LED backlight as a light source while minimizing the surface reflection of ambient light. The result is an LCD that produces high contrast images even in bright outdoor light or direct sunlight.


GENFLECTIVE™/TRANSFLECTIVE DISPLAYS (TWOVIEW SOLAR)
This type of panel incorporates a highly reflective backlight that reflects the ambient lighting back out of the display to enhance its native brightness produced by its active backlight. Like the Transmissive-Enhanced View Displays, these panels work best when coupled with an AR-coated overlay. They are least effective with overlays that retard the light transmission (e.g., resistive touch sensors) or have a matte finish.

GenFlective/Transflective High Brightness Display Types
T-EVT technology uses the high brightness/efficiency LED backlight as a light source while minimizing the surface reflection of ambient light. The result is an LCD that produces high contrast images even in bright outdoor light or direct sunlight.


SUNLIGHT READABLE (TWOVIEW SOLAR)/NVIS COMPATIBLE (TWOVIEW SOLAR NVIS) DISPLAYS
These displays feature a value-add backlight, typically made from high efficiency LEDs. These displays produce significant active luminance. Often, the peak luminance is limited by internal ambient temperature constraints or must be connected to an intelligent backlight controller and thermal sensor that will automatically reduce brightness/power to avoid over-temperature conditions or thermal shutdown. The high luminance output makes them ideal for use with a wide variety of overlays such as touch sensors, EMI filters, heaters, etc.

Sunlight Readable/NVIS-Compatible Display Types
Sunlight readable displays use a General Digital-enhanced, highly efficient, super bright/sunlight readable LED backlight to provide maximum functional brightness. The addition of surface treatments such as antireflective coatings and optical bonding reduce surface reflections and increase contrast so displays can be used in direct sunlight.


If our stock offering does not suit your needs in terms of size, fit or function, please contact a Sales Engineer and we will work with you to configure a system to your specifications. Customers can also request that we integrate one of our many LED-based sunlight readable, NVIS or sunlight readable/NVIS enhanced displays into their TwoView product. These solutions provide many advantages, such as increased longevity, improved durability, higher brightness, lower power consumption and/or NVIS compatibility.

VIDEO AND CONTROLS

Close-up of video controller PCB

General Digital offers a wide range of video controllers, allowing you to fine tune the display features and support to your specific video requirements.

We can reprogram the video controller firmware/BIOS to support a variety of video timings and specialty needs, such as STANAG 3350 A, B and C, RS-343 and RS-170. Most of our video controllers will also support interlaced and non-interlaced analog video (separate, composite and Sync-On-Green) as well as live video signals such as NTSC, PAL or SECAM. Some controllers will also support HD-SDI or SD-SDI as a standard or optional feature.

Please consult a Sales Engineer to optimize your video controller selection.


OSD CONTROLS

Each display has its own dedicated keypad for the On-screen Display (OSD), located either on the left side of the display head, or below the display head on the keyboard tray. Each keypad interfaces to a separate unique video controller (one for each display). Some models can be configured to provide NVIS compatibility or configured with electronics that allow backlight dimming.

BUILT-IN KEYBOARD AND TRACKBALL

The TwoView can be configured with a vast assortment of commercial-, industrial- and military-grade keyboards, with an integrated trackball. Customers may opt for other pointing devices, such as a touch pad, or omit one altogether. Currently, the TwoView 2 and TwoView 2 Vertical can be configured with only a light-industrial-/commercial-grade keyboard. Consult a Sales Engineer to discuss what will best suit your needs.

1 Since the TwoView Series does not include an embedded power supply as standard equipment, we strongly recommend the purchase of a General Digital-manufactured power supply, which is specially designed and tested to work with our LCD monitors. Please note that these supplies include the required DC harness and connector to interface to your TwoView unit.
2 Consult a Sales Engineer to select from a multitude of standalone AC switching or DC–DC supplies that can be mounted within the customer’s rack. General Digital can assist in specifying a commercial, industrial or military power supply that will meet your specific requirements.

General Digital designs and manufactures scores of different monitor configurations each year, making the creation of technical documentation for each configuration impractical. We efficiently combine data into a select few documents, which answer most questions that customers typically ask. Please feel welcome to request any information not found here.

    Rugged Rack Mount Monitors for Every Environment (1:31)

    Rack mount monitors are essential for maintaining vast amounts of server information when space is critical. General Digital's industrial- and military-grade rack mount solutions make sure that the job gets done right. We have many configurations of rack mount monitors, to accommodate nearly any application or environment.


     

    Optical Characterization Services (2:16)

    Unlike your phone, a display’s position cannot easily be adjusted to increase readability in direct sunlight. General Digital’s Optical Characterization Services take the guesswork out of quantifying how your display will perform under sunlight conditions. The following video explains the process in detail.

    High Performance Video Calibration Services (2:32)

    One of the many services General Digital provides is High Performance Video Calibration. In any application, where multiple monitors are used, video calibration of this caliber proves invaluable. In this video, one of our Electro-Optical Engineers, Mike Kloter, explains the benefits of this process.
