Custom LCD Monitors for Air Traffic Control

Over many years, a square 2K x 2K monitor with a 28.1" screen size has become the control screen of choice for airspace control and monitoring. Usually, a high-resolution native 2048 x 2048 screen with a pixel pitch of 0.246mm is used with additional LCD monitors on a control room workstation. This monitor solution is widely used for civil and military applications.

As a cost-effective alternative, Canvys offers a single 43” 4K2K (16:9) control room workstation solution that replaces the traditional two-monitor workstations. The custom solution can display a main 2048 x 2048 native resolution, 0.2451mm pixel pitch, airspace surveillance/control image with two additional 1680 x 1050 image overlays from two independent signal inputs. The smaller pixel pitch of the 2048 x 2048 main screen display causes a 1.8mm smaller physical width and height of the control image that is almost identical to the original 28.1" monitor. The 43” 4K2K solution displays all three images on one screen. Our customers’ feedback is that this custom monitor solution provides optimal ergonomics as well as an increase in workspace due to the elimination of two LCD monitors.

The 4K2K control room workstation LCD monitor is fanless, suitable for 24/7 operation (when used correctly), and can display signals via both DisplayPort and DVI-D interfaces. Users can tilt the modern TrueFlat metal housing of the 4k2k control room workstation screen up to 12° using the supplied feet. The anti-reflective (AR) coating of the protective glass minimizes reflections of the glass surface, and supports high resolution and high-contrast image displays.

Canvys engineers, designs and manufactures each of its display solutions with stable, long-term availability. We understand that most OEM product life expectancies are three to five years or even longer. Changes to system components can require considerable amounts of time and money to re-test, re-certify, and re-train users. The system is only as strong as its weakest link. With this understanding, Canvys contracts with its suppliers to ensure that components will be available for the duration of the project.
