Glass front, multitouch functionality and panel computer options make these products the ultimate choice for professional maritime use.

Introduction of mandatory ECDIS (Electronic chart Display Information systems) legislation for existing vessels from 2014-2018, increasing use of touch screens instead of mechanical control panels and next generation bridge solutions, will provide further opportunities for growth and development for Hatteland Display in the years ahead.
