10.4" Rugged Monitor for Defense Industry Applications


Viewpoint’s 10.4” monitor sets the standard for performance in this size range and is used in a number of different applications. The monitor utilizes a high resolution (1024 x 768 pixels) LCD with ultra-wide viewing angles. The high bright LED backlight system (1000 NITS) combined with a 900:1 contrast ratio results in a picture that is one of the finest in the industry. The VPT-10-MIL was one of the first monitors designed by our engineering team. Our goal was to build a monitor that performs longer than the competition without suffering any failures regardless of the environment in which it was installed. The display is capable of processing a variety of different analog and digital video signals including VGA, DVI, and HD-SDI. The VPT-10-MIL is typically installed in aircraft cockpits and ground vehicle passenger compartments due to its size and its ability to be customized to specific missions.
