A new range of TFT liquid crystal monitors and flat screens from Review Display Systems is the `Clarity 18′. The units feature 18.1 inch SXGA (1289 x 1024 pixel) colour TFT LCD technology and are available in three configurations: one flat panel computer and two flat panel monitors. All three units include the option to fit an analogue resistive touch screen for easy operator data input. The system can be manufactured as a monitor in one of two configurations either analogue (VAMP) or the digital interface (FP-Kit). The VAMP allows the display to be connected directly to a video source via a standard DB15 connector, allowing operation with non PC compatible platforms.
The FP-Kit system offers a direct interface to a PC bus platform. The PCI bus display controller board provides the image for the screen together with NTSC support for live video.
