As part of its strategic initiative to increase vertical market expertise, Planar Systems, a worldwide leader in specialty display solutions, has announced the debut of the company's first touchscreen display for emergency response and fleet vehicles. A cost-effective specialty industrial display, Planar's LX1200 is a durable monitor that is designed to easily record and exchange valuable information in harsh, rugged and unpredictable car environments, such as public safety and transportation vehicles.

Featuring a transflective display for sunlight readability, a touch monitor for easy interfacing, and a compact rugged magnesium enclosure for protection against the harsh environment of public safety vehicles, the LX1200 is designed specifically to withstand the challenging needs of in-vehicle applications.

Primarily geared for use in police and fire departments, as well as homeland security applications, the LX1200 is also ideal for any type of fleet vehicle, such as taxis and utility systems, including telecommunication and cable vehicles.

"The LX1200 offers an unparalleled durability and functionality that make it a perfect fit for a variety of applications. This affordable state-of-the-art Planar touchscreen monitor allows for quick and reliable data entry while maintaining significantly lower power consumption," says Mike Arani, research analyst, Frost & Sullivan.
