DIS-285P High-End Interface Card Delivers Studio Quality TFT Displays

Displaign Elektronik & Design GmbH, a daughter company of MSC, presents in Hall 12, Booth 466 at embedded world 2007 a high-end TFT interface card, specifically designed to meet the highest requirements. The DIS-285P board supports high resolution displays of up to 1920 x 1440 pixels. At the same, by means of the 3rd Generation Motion Adaptive De-Interlace an excellent HDTV (480i, 576i, 1080i) picture quality can also be achieved.

DIS-285P High-End Interface Card for Studio Quality TFT DisplaysIn addition to the color components inputs, HD/SD-SDI signals and other signal sources can be processed via auxiliary input modules. The DIS-285P also has two parallel channels for image processing, which makes it possible to display Picture-in-Picture (PiP) as well as Picture-by-Picture (PbP). It is therefore possible, for example, to superimpose a window in the RGB picture, which shows the HDTV/color components input. This window can be positioned and its size changed as required.

In addition to the six regular signal sources (two each RGB/YPbPr and FBAS as well as DVI and Y/C) seven video inputs are available, if required to the user, via a connector. The DIS-285P TFT Interface Card is a board without jumpers. This means that all settings take place via the OnScreenManager (OSM). An optical or mechanical JogDial, which allows an intuitive operation, as well as a keyboard with dynamic autorepeat, can be used as control element. As an alternative, the board can also be controlled via an infrared remote control.

Particularly useful and timesaving for designers is that the firmware contains the timing of all ever adapted panels. Additionally, the DIS-285P board allows a variable and independent horizontal as well as vertical scaling. A Long Distance DVI solution up to a distance of 50 meters is offered as an option.

The flexibility and performance of the interface card is underlined by the integrated Wide Range Controller, which generates 3.3V, 5V and 12V panel power supply voltages. Therefore, only a single 8 to 28 VDC power supply is required. An extensive windows tool as advanced RS232 support provides the simplest possible protocol integration in customer systems.

The board is an ideal addition for large-area high-resolution TFTs from AUO, LG.Philips LCD (LPL) or also Samsung. The support of portrait mode presentation makes the card an ideal choice for so-called Public Displays LC420WX5-SLB1 and LC320W01-SL13 from LG.Philips LCD (LPL). Because of their mechanics, backlight system and the internal structure of the LC molecules, these are suitable for vertical and horizontal mounting.
