his brand new display
features the multiple benefits of the recent Series 1 redesign and is the first display for marine use to utilize LED backlighting technology.
"In collaboration with Sharp, we are committed to ensuring the long term availability of high quality 23" displays in order to meet the marine industry's demand for them in various applications on both new build and retrofit vessels. This new display is an exact replacement for our existing 23" display, the JH 23T12 MMD, in form, fit and function, but offers a number of technical improvements, including the introduction of LED backlighting,"
says Lars Skjelbred-Eriksen, VP Sales & Marketing, Hatteland Display.
The new 23" Series 1 is 100% based on already proven technology from Hatteland Display's MMD (Maritime Multi Display) series products. It can be delivered as an ECDIS compliant display using Hatteland Display's unique in-house color calibration technology. The recent redesign of the Series 1 product range introduced a number of benefits including improved connectivity and fewer cable connections, which increases reliability and reduces component costs.
"Hatteland Display was the first supplier to offer a 23" display as a radar ARPA monitor and we are the first to introduce LED backlighting to marine displays of any size. We are very confident in the LED backlighting solution and are happy to be at the forefront of a possible industry standard technology for the future. We are also ensuring that the 23" display will provide a low cost of ownership and be very competitive in the market,"
says President & CEO of Hatteland Display, Trond K. Johannessen.
The LED backlighting ensures that the new 23" Series 1 display provides excellent viewing performance, and is a perfect match for Hatteland Display's proprietary optical bonding technology, which provides benefits in reduced sunlight reflection, condensation and overheating to ensure better viewing clarity, more reliable operation and a longer product lifespan.
The new 23" Series 1 display with LED backlighting has been made possible through close co-operation with Sharp, with all specifications and requirements made by Hatteland Display, based on its two decades of building high quality marine displays. It is built to the highest standards, and has undergone a strict testing regime, including HALT testing to ensure reliability in the tough marine environment.
