Aug 26, 2022 | Press Releases

Saint Charles Missouri, August 26, 2022 – Westar Display Technologies, Inc., a supplier of LCD Controllers for specialty displays, has added the VP17 to its line of LCD Controllers. The VP17 accepts and processes up to four input channels with support for 3G-SDI, DisplayPort / eDP, DVI, RGB, RGB sync-on-green, component, STANAG, and may other video formats. Three input channels are standard and the fourth can be supported via input mezzanine boards. The VP17 supports DVI, LVDS, and high-speed parallel outputs up to 1920×1200 resolutions.

“We wanted to support multiple input types in the standard VP17, while maintaining a small footprint suitable for most tactical displays”, said Jim Vennard, Product Manager for LCD Controllers at Westar. “Each input supports automatic detection of different video resolutions. Three inputs can be viewed simultaneously; four with an optional input mezzanine. Keying is also available as an option”, said Dave Berghoff, Customer Support Engineer for LCD Controllers at Westar.

The VP17 is in full production and comes standard with a configuration utility that supports in-the-field firmware, FPGA and parameter (BIOS) updates. This Windows-based software allows end-users to configure the VP17 for each unique application.
