XY Displays

Imaging Systems Technology makes form-fit-function (FFF) replacement displays for hard-to-find legacy XY displays (also known as stroke-writing, vector, calligraphic, XYZ, and random scan monitors). XY displays were used in many systems designed from the 1960s to 1990s because they could faithfully display arbitrary video waveforms with high resolution and brightness. This made them invaluable in systems of the era that lacked today's processing power, memory, and display resolution. No video standards were ever developed for stroke video systems, so every system is unique and may take advantage of many analog behaviors unique to XY displays. IST provides expert support to reproduce original display quality for demanding applications.

XY displays are used in many applications that use stroke video format including: avionics and head-up displays (HUD), ground test equipment, radar, electronic warfare (EW), test equipment, and other types of equipment. IST works with any application and form factor.

IST can reproduce all OEM XY displays of any size from 3" to 21". New displays use IST's VectorVGA stroke-to-raster video format convertor to display the original stroke video on a high-quality LED-back-lit LCD that meets or exceeds original video quality. IST designs and fabricates reproduction enclosures for drop-in replacement with identical dimensions, controls, connectors, and mounting points. Additional features such as video mixing and static overlay are possible. Contact us to discuss your needs.
