World Leading Glass Bridge Displays now with LED Technology

Fort Lauderdale October 2009: Nauticomp, one of the worlds leading manufacturers of robust, waterproof maritime displays, introduces an enhanced version of its celebrated Glass Bridge Display® at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

The Glass Bridge Display® offers the industry’s largest display in the smallest chassis, providing the skipper with the clearest information by maximising the screen space available. Interface circuits allow up to 10 inputs to be displayed while Picture in Picture (PIP) facilitates all inputs, or any combination, to be displayed simultaneously if required. Inputs can be DVI, VGA, NTSC and component HDTV.
Each of the input functions are easily controlled through the external GB Commander keypad. The user can easily select inputs manually or simply set the controller for auto selection.

Building to stringent IP 67 standards, Nauticomp has used the very latest glass bonding technology which has been optically enhanced. The units therefore not only provide superb clarity and readability, even in full sunlight, but are also totally waterproof and free of any possible misting in a humid environment.

The advanced dynamic brightness technique, allows the user to control brightness levels of every input. Highly efficient LED backlight technology has been incorporated into this new generation to reduce power draw at all levels, while Nauticomp’s celebrated Dim to Red feature makes the Glass Bridge Display® a class leader for night operation, dimming to 2 nits in black or red.

The Nauticomp 12”, 15”, and 19” models are available as daylight viewable for pilothouse applications, and sunlight viewable for bridge stations. The industry leading 21.3” Glass Bridge Display®, has been developed for the most prestigious Pilothouse and Bridge applications aboard today’s prestigious superyachts and the demanding requirements of the professional skipper.

The Nauticomp range can be seen at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, booth 533, Bahia Mar electronics tent.
