CW GVDU GVA Video Display Unit

GVA Video Display Unit

The GVDU range of displays are very competitively priced and combine military rugged design, in a size, weight and power (SWaP) optimised display with market-leading performance and a rich, flexible set of features including GVA programmable bezel buttons and video over Ethernet capability based on the MODUK DEF-STAN 00-82. 

The range will be available in 10.4”, 12.1” and 15.6”. Larger sizes (17” and 21.5” for example) may be available upon request. All displays are fully qualified to established military environmental standards and can be connected to a wide variety of video sources. 

GVDU displays offer a unique combination of new technology, including optically-bonded glass for perfect anytime readability, as well as full touchscreen operation based on a unique projected capacitive touchscreen that offers multi-touch as well as gloved and wet operation. 

An internal embedded processor enables the displays to provide an enhanced set of interfaces including Ethernet, USB, RS-232/RS-422 and GPIO. The internal processor provides DEF-STAN 00-82 video over Ethernet capability, graphics input to the displays, and receives all touchscreen and bezel button operations. The processor may be used to implement a map display, function as a mission computer, or decompress and display network video, amongst many other possibilities. 

Optionally, external video could be accepted as DVI-D or analogue input, suitable for direct connection to mission or map computers. The displays feature USB and RS-232/RS-422 to implement the touchscreen and bezel button interface. 

The bezel buttons along the sides of the displays are positioned based on the GVA standard and are fully programmable via USB. 

The GVDU offers market-leading anytime visibility by means of powerful LED backlights and optical bonding to reduce internal reflection and enhance contrast, making them suitable for use in conditions of high incident light.
