Densitron has announced a quartet of new touchscreens for its Intelligent Display System (IDS) range.
Developed to provide versatile control of both IDS and third-party broadcast systems, the display and control surfaces are designed for tasks such as production and off-set timing, clocks and tally information, and live visual feedback. Simultaneously, the company is also launching a new end-point SBC, R7, for use with the IDS solution.
All four of the new touchscreens run IDS software in order to display comprehensive information and alerts about users’ broadcast systems. They feature interactive multi-touch displays and can be deployed to provide ergonomic network control of both IDS and other vendor equipment. Connection to the IDS network is achieved via Ethernet for a quick installation process.
The 6.6in IDS TS6.6 is the most compact of the four products with a 1440x240 pixel array providing a resolution of 222 PPI. It is housed in a steel 1RU rack-mountable enclosure (half-width), making it suitable for installation in desks or apparatus rooms.
The 10.1in IDS TS10.1 incorporates an IPS TFT with 1200x1920 resolution display and control unit. Housed in a steel enclosure, this touchscreen can be wall- or desktop-mounted, giving the user flexibility in terms of positioning.
The 2x 6.6in IDS TS13.2 is also high contrast, high brightness and high resolution IPS TFT with two 1440x240 displays providing a resolution of 222 PPI. The displays are housed in a steel 1RU rack-mountable enclosure, and once again the solution can be installed in desks or apparatus rooms.
Completing the quartet of touchscreens is the 16.3in IDS TS16.3. Housed in a steel 2RU rack-mountable enclosure, this multi-touch interactive control and monitoring surface is high contrast, high brightness and high resolution IPS TFT with 1920x285 resolution.
Reuben Such, global business director at Densitron IDS, commented: “These new products represent the next major evolution of the IDS touchscreen interface. Harnessing the powerful processing capabilities of the Densitron 2.0 range of products, these display and control surfaces offer superb resolution and outstanding performance. We also believe that they will resonate with a very broad range of existing – and potential – IDS customers.”
The remaining new IDS product is the R7 SBC. Incorporating a high-performance AMD embedded system-on-chip (SOC) design with powerful dual core @1.2GHz processing and 4GB inbuilt memory, the R7 represents the next generation in IDS media end-points. With multiple I/O options and 32GB storage, it is specified to deliver dynamic content and critical information to displays that are part of an IDS network.
All five of the new products are now shipping.
