Ginsbury extends Digital View LCD controller range

Digital View LCD controllers fit for harsh environments

Rochester, UK, 13th June 2012. Display specialist Ginsbury has extended its offering of standard high-definition LCD interface controllers from Digital View with the addition of a range of Harsh Environment options. The new controller range matches the connectivity and image performance of the standard range, but also meets the needs of display integrators working in more demanding environments such as high reliability, industrial, defence, marine and outdoor digital signage applications. The harsh environment range has conformal coatings, built-in vibration resistance, supports operating temperatures of -40° to +80°C and is offered with a 3 year warranty.

The new HX-1920, which is fully compatible with Digital View's popular SVX-1920, provides a fully buffered, multi-sync LCD interface controller that provides true 10-bit (up to 1 billion colours) support for large format, high-definition TFT LCDs up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution operating in harsh environments. The HX-1920 has a wide range of inputs including HDMI, DVI, VGA, S-Video and Composite - with HDCP support on the HDMI and DVI ports. The picture-in-picture feature offers full flexibility of size and position, the programmable, full-screen OSD menu enables on-screen frame markers and on-screen messaging and an onboard ethernet port delivers network monitoring and control. The HX-1920 also offers a range of unique, high feature plug-in options: the HD-3000 enables 3G HD-SDI input, the IE-1000 offers 120Hz support through a 10-bit adaptor for 4-channel LVDS panels and DisplayMark support provides a compliance mechanism for monitoring video playback on LCDs.

Also in the range is the HE-1600 which supports 8-bit display panels with dual S-video or Composite video, two VGA and one DVI input for display resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 and the HE-1400 offers an option for DVI-D and VGA input for resolutions up to 1366 x 768. In common with other Digital View controller products, all the harsh environment solutions are extremely flexible with built-in, jumper-controlled, support for most display panels from leading LCD manufacturers.

Steve Varley, Product Manager, Ginsbury said, "The introduction of the harsh environment range will allow migration of the very popular Digital View LCD controller platforms into high reliability applications." He continued "Many of our customers are designing and manufacturing products that are used in wide temperature and extreme environment conditions, the expansion of support for the Digital View controller boards will offer performance and reliability to match these environmental requirements."

The Digital View LCD interface controller range covers low cost RGB analogue PC input only cards through to high end video, RGB and DVI cards with multi-sync, autosensing capability, on screen display settings and picture in picture functionality. Ginsbury are the Digital View's authorised UK distributor and hold stock for all Digital View display controller products, cables and accessories.
