    Interesting news from Xenarc

    I emailed Xenarc to briefly express my frustration that they offered no screens suitable for sunlight viewing

    To my surprise I was given a response and even more to my surprise this is what it was:
    Hi Dan,

    We will release a 1000 NIT unit in about 2 months.


    Regards,

    I asked if it would be in 7" and..

    No, it is going to be a 10.4".

    We have an optical enhancement that we can perform on our current 7"
    monitors to make them sunlight readable. However, the touchscreen version will be not sunlight readable even after the upgrade. We increase the brightness and apply an Anti Reflective coating. Many of our customers use that in airplanes and helicopters and are pretty satisfied with the result.

    I asked the cost and....
    Hi Dan,

    The upgrade cost $195 and like I said, it works better with the non-touchscreen version. What is the manufacturing date of your monitor?

    We are currently working on a 7" model that comes with a new type of high brightness LCD panel. It greatly improves visibility under high lighting
    conditions. However, it is not "direct sunlight readable".


    Regards,

    Real interesting stuff if you ask me
    1) 1000 nit 10.4" display in 2 months
    2) We can send our 7" displays in for "optical enchancement"
    3) A high brightness 7" is being "worked on"

    # 3 for $195 no way!!! why they don't offer a upgrade unit to people that still having the warranty??

    Call me dumb or whatever but I pay $420 dollars shipped for my 7" when they just got out so investing more money in that screen is no in my plans.... of course this is just ME.

    Thanatos.
