The AVDU is currently available in five display sizes and resolutions to address a wide variety of applications on ground, airborne and naval platforms. Fully qualified to established environmental standards, the displays can be used in standalone mode, where multiple video input capability can be used to present a number of configurable operator views, or as part of a Curtiss-Wright video management system (VMS) alongside video distribution switches and recorders. When used in a VMS, the display's touchscreen capability allows all the functionality of these units to be easily controlled by the operator. The displays feature multiple control inputs including Ethernet, CANBus, RS-232/RS-422, and USB, and the most widely used video interfaces including DVI HD-SDI, VGA, and composite video, offering maximum flexibility to system integrators. They are fully interoperable with the latest turret and downlink solutions on the market.
