The new Eagle-19 high-resolution colour display from dpiX is on show for the first time at Paris.

The Eagle-19 is the largest active-matrix liquid crystal display manufactured in North America, claims dpiX, a member of the Xerox New Enterprise group of companies.

The display has been designed for military and high-end commercial applications and is aimed at replacing large cathode ray tube (CRT) displays in aircraft such as the E-2C Hawkeye airborne early warning and Boeing AWACS aircraft, as well as the US Navy's Aegis-class guided missile cruisers and Bradley command fighting vehicles.

The company claims several advantages for the 19in-screen Eagle-19 compared with CRT monitors, including more stable images and savings in weight and power consumption. Sample units will be available for evaluation from the third quarter of this year, with production starting at year-end.
