Furuno introduces Hi-Brite monitors

Furuno has unveiled new Hi-Brite Multi Touch Marine Monitors that the company says offer “state of the art brilliance and sensitivity” to the company’s TZtouch and TZtouch2 Black Box systems.

Furuno offers the 17-inch MU175T, 19-inch MU195T and the 24-inch, wide-aspect-ratio MU245T.

The multi-touch monitors offer an edge-to-edge glass design incorporating glass display controls with no physical buttons or switches. Each monitor has Projected Capacitive Touch technology to provide sensitivity as well as bright TFT active-matrix LCD and LED backlighting, plus vivid colors, strong contrast and wide viewing angles.

Furuno says the three new Hi-Brite monitors have brilliance levels of 1,000 candela and can be dimmed for night vision. The LCD and glass are bonded to resist fog and the screens have an IP66 (front) and IP22 (rear) waterproof rating. Multiple inputs allow you to display information from multiple video sources. They also have adjustable picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture modes. Full glass display controls include customizable “hot” keys and dual power-source capability.
