For those of you interested in the new DVDPak monitor, I wanted to give a side by side comparison and explain the differences between the OLED and LCD.
This LCD is the same technology you have seen in all our monitors for the last 4 years or so. It produces a very good quality image with a fairly large screen given the compact size of the DVDPak. The resolution of the LCD is 320x240. For quite a few of you this is probably the route to go if you want larger displays.
OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. The OLED is a new technology that offers some big advantages over the LCD in extreme weather conditions. for those of you who have trouble monitoring inspections in extreme cold or heat this is your answer. The OLED display has a comfortable operating range all the way down to -30F and up to 130F. No more sluggish displays in the cold or super dark displays in the heat. While the OLED is smaller than the LCD it offers a higher resolution at 480x270 and slighly better performance in sunlight.
Whichever way you go the DVDPak is really a nice setup. Battery power and high portability in a rugged, weatherized case with highly reliable dvd recording gives the DVDPak some big advantages over the previous generation of DVD monitors.
Sorry if that sounded like marketing... Just wanted to make sure you guys knew the difference between the 2 screen types.
