Improved Video Performance
for a Military Application
Our client is the producer of rugged mechanical panels made for military purposes.
The client was in a very late stage of a naval project and needed help fast. Its current monitor system was offering very poor video performances and they needed another solution.
Since the project was already late-stage, our challenge was to design a direct-replacement monitor that would fit into the custom 10.4-inch space. The application is a sunlight-readable monitor with full IP65 enclosure and sunlight retable, with a composite video feed from a special day/night surveillance camera.
Our solution needed to deliver superior overall performance, with high SNR to clear out any environmental interferences. That meant a clear, sunlight-readable image PC input, and an option for fast switching between inputs.
We recommended a 1000-hit LCD solution with front-protecting glass with AR, and a high-end processor board that offered a clear composite image with PIP/PBP for PC+CVBS signals.
MIL-STD connectors were fitted to upgrade the unit to meet the needs of the application, and a suitable IP seal was applied to the housing. Naturally, the housing followed the existing design and max dimensions.
