EIZO today announced the DuraVision MDU5501WT 55-inch 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) desktop monitor with touch support. The new product is intended for routing and navigation systems installed on modern marine vessels.
According to the manufacturer, the screen of the DuraVision MDU5501WT monitor provides ship operators with ample room to simultaneously view important navigation information from one or more applications. This allows them to view maps and information from different applications without having to switch between windows or zoom.
The monitor can be stacked horizontally, turning it into a table for working with traditional paper maps when needed. The wide margins around the screen can be used to place objects or rest your hands on them for rest without impairing the view of the screen.
The capacitive touchscreen recognizes up to ten simultaneous finger taps or two-pen input. This allows the operator to place his hand on the screen or lean on it, which does not lead to unintended triggering. In addition, the monitor detects if liquid has been spilled on it and automatically temporarily deactivates the touch function until the spilled liquid is eliminated. Touch input can be turned on or off at any time by pressing a button on the outside edge of the monitor.
The monitor supports simultaneous output from a second source (PiP), such as a security camera with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, or 960 x 540 pixels in one corner of the screen. The second possible PbP mode, in which data from two different sources are displayed side by side, each at a resolution of 1920 x 2160 pixels. Rotation of the image on the monitor by 180 ° is provided.
The DuraVision MDU5501WT backlight brightness, gamma and color settings are factory calibrated for accurate color reproduction to meet highly specialized ECDIS requirements. The monitor complies with international standards IEC 61174, IEC 62288 and IEC 62388 for ECDIS. The ECDIS indicator, located on the front of the monitor, lights up when the brightness and color settings are correct for ECDIS requirements.
The monitor is designed to withstand the harsh marine environment, including protection from moisture, vibration and temperature extremes. The degree of protection of the front panel is IP65, the rear panel is IP22. Supports AC and DC power with the ability to parallel connect to two sources for redundancy.
The monitor equipment includes DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D video inputs, as well as RS-232C, RS-485 and USB ports. The kit includes a sensor pen and a holder for it. Screen brightness is adjustable in the range of 1 cd / m22 up to 610 cd / m2.
The DuraVision MDU5501WT will begin shipping in July 2021.
