Densitron Debuts More UReady Control Surface Kit

The 4RU 19” Rack Control and Monitoring Surface and 2RU Control Surface powered with X86 Platform are rack-mountable and can provide capacitive touchscreen control.

Designed for a wide array of broadcast and media applications, the new launches are the UReady 4RU 19” Rack Control and Monitoring Surface and the UReady 2RU Control Surface powered with the X86 Platform.

Densitron's 4RU 19” Rack Control and Monitoring Surface provides a 16.9” high resolution (1920 x 624) display, allowing multiple video picture monitor and audio level displays to be presented side-by-side. Incorporating a high-quality TFT display with capacitive touch allows the solution to be deployed as an interactive signal interface, with USB for touchscreen and Display Port, DVI and VGA for video signals. Developed to suit a myriad of broadcast applications, this major addition to the UReady range can be used for signal and picture monitoring, as a control system with multi-touch PCT, or a combination of both.

The 2RU Control Surface powered with X86 includes a display with 1920 x 285 pixels and an optically-bonded capacitive touchscreen. Wide-angle symmetric viewing capability makes the product suitable for numerous applications in broadcast, telecommunications, and other networked control and monitoring environments.

Based on the Intel Apollo N4200 Quad Core processor, the embedded X86 architecture and software ecosystem supports rapid and pain-free implementation by customers. With a GPU based on Intel’s Gen9 architecture supporting DirectX12, the product has Ethernet connectivity and offers full support for Linux and Windows 10 OS.

Bazile Peter, Global Product Manager – HMI Solutions, comments: “The functionality of many traditional control surfaces tends to be rather limited and means they are often only suitable for relatively simple HMI. But with our ever-growing UReady range, we have designed a series of solutions that augment core display and control functionality with superb capacitive touch control, high contrast ratio and high-resolution glass-estate. With these two latest multi-faceted products ready for 4RU and 2RU rack-mounting, we expect to further expand our footprint in broadcast environments such as portable production units, OB vehicles, studios and control rooms.”
