control display units (CDUs)
KORTRIJK, Belgium, 17 June 2011. Barco N.V. in Kortrijk, Belgium will showcase a newly introduced avionics Touch Screen Control Unit (TSCU) at the Paris Air Show June 20 to 24 in Le Bourget, France. The touch-screen avionics display is for existing and new aircraft types, and is designed to input and display cockpit information. Barco created the TSCU prototype as one way to upgrade avionics control display units (CDUs), which company officials say are important input and information devices in the cockpit.
The touch screen offers user-definable content to enable users to define the content presented on-screen and the way it is presented. Touch screen buttons replace physical buttons to suit different aircraft or to display proprietary applications.
Barco will exhibit at the Paris Air Show's Belgian Pavilion number G49. For more information contact Barco online at www.barco.com.
