CRAWLEY, UK, 19 JANUARY 2021: Densitron, the global leader in innovative Human Machine Interaction (HMI) and display technology, has announced two significant new additions to its popular UReady range of control and monitoring solutions. Both designed for a wide array of broadcast and media applications, the new launches are the UReady 4RU 19” Rack Control and Monitoring Surface and the UReady 2RU Control Surface Powered with the X86 Platform.
The 4RU 19” Rack Control and Monitoring Surface provides a 16.9” high resolution (1920 x 624) display, allowing multiple video picture monitor and audio level displays to be presented side-by-side. Incorporating a high-quality TFT display with capacitive touch allows the solution to be deployed as an interactive signal interface, with USB for touchscreen and Display Port, DVI and VGA for video signals. Developed to suit a myriad of broadcast applications, this major addition to the UReady range can be used for signal and picture monitoring, as a control system with multi-touch PCT, or a combination of both.
The 2RU Control Surface powered with X86 includes a display with 1920 x 285 pixels and an optically-bonded capacitive touchscreen. Wide-angle symmetric viewing capability makes the product suitable for numerous applications in broadcast, telecommunications, and other networked control and monitoring environments. Based on the Intel Apollo N4200 Quad Core processor, the embedded X86 architecture and software ecosystem supports rapid and pain-free implementation by customers. With a GPU based on Intel’s Gen9 architecture supporting DirectX12, the product has Ethernet connectivity and offers full support for Linux and Windows 10 operating systems.
Bazile Peter, Global Product Manager – HMI Solutions at Densitron, comments: “The functionality of many traditional control surfaces tends to be rather limited and means they are often only suitable for relatively simple HMI. But with our ever-growing UReady range, we have designed a series of solutions that augment core display and control functionality with superb capacitive touch control, high contrast ratio and high-resolution glass-estate. With these two latest multi-faceted products ready for 4RU and 2RU rack-mounting, we expect to further expand our footprint in broadcast environments such as portable production units, OB vehicles, studios and control rooms.”
Founded 50 years ago, Densitron is a display expert designing and manufacturing touch-based HMI (Human Machine Interaction) solutions tailored to the needs of customers around the world. In 2019, Densitron acquired the Intelligent Display System (IDS) product and brand from IPE Technologies. IDS is readily integrated into Densitron’s control surfaces and offers a fully scalable, network-based display and control system, which is a logical and seamless complement to Densitron’s existing product range. We collaborate with our customers to understand their particular requirements and then create bespoke products to address those. In November 2015 Densitron was acquired by Quixant plc which designs and manufactures highly optimised computing solutions and monitors principally to the global gaming industry. Together, the Company has offices in Asia, Europe and North America and experienced application engineers based worldwide, our global approach to innovation is always underpinned by a thorough local knowledge and understanding of cultural requirements. Our products can be found in a wide range of sectors including broadcast, medical, security, automotive, digital signage and gaming. More information can be found at www.densitron.com.
