EIZO UHD Monitor is First Primary Control Monitor for ATC

Eizo’s special monitor group based in Wolfrathausen in Germany, has announced the new Raptor RP4325, a 42.5-inch primary control monitor with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution for primary control positions in air traffic control (ATC) centres. Contrast is 3,000:1 and response time (grey to grey) is 8ms from the VA panel. Inputs include dual DVI-I and DisplayPort connectors. There is integrated USB with two upstream links.

It is built with industrial-grade components, making it better suited to long-term use compared to commercial-grade products. The monitor uses full sheet steel industrial-grade housing for durability in demanding environments. It is also designed to maintain low heat output without a fan to provide noiseless operation while protecting components.

Users can freely position each source for a highly customizable layout. 3840 x 2160 resolution allows the ATCO (air traffic control officer) to display high-resolution data in full on one screen without the obtrusive bezels typically found in multi-monitor workstations. 2K x 2K and auxiliary information can also be displayed simultaneously on a single screen, allowing controllers to view more information easily in one place for improved situational awareness.

The monitor brightness can be adjusted within a wide range of 25 to 500 cd/m² to suit the installation environment as well as the needs of the ATCO. Eizo’s fully automated brightness stability function uses an internal backlight sensor to stabilize the brightness level throughout the life of the monitor, compensating for fluctuations caused by variations in ambient temperature and the passage of time.

The monitor’s design features unobtrusive side bezels that measure ‘just 24 mm’ so ATCOs can focus more on the screen. The monitor’s depth is also minimized to maintain a weight distribution close to the centre of mass and it weighs just 20.5 kg, resulting in less stress on mounting fixtures over time. A protective glass sheet is available as an option.
