Widescreen oil displays

November 2010 Products

Displays handle extreme desert conditions.

AG Neovo has been installed in a cross-border oil exploration venture in the Middle East. More than 2000 X-W19 and 120 X-W22 displays were chosen and installed by joint operations for use by its technocrats, engineers and office workers. And they have proven themselves capable of getting the job done at a demanding workplace, the Arabic desert.

JO is a US$340 million project that explores for and produces oil and gas in the onshore partitioned neutral zone (PNZ) located between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. It needs displays of an extraordinary breed as it seeks to extract heavy oil from fields lying in the PNZ through 'steam-flood' technology that is being used in this part of the world for the first time. Other than performing all the intended duties, they will have to be built of glass sturdy enough to endure the test of an unusually harsh climate.

Fully aware of the challenge posed to JO technocrats and engineers in the form of extreme climatic conditions all year round, HIT came up with the X-Series widescreen displays. They proved effective in withstanding wild temperature swings, sandstorms and other tests of the elements. This is an environment where extremely high temperatures are common, and night temperatures can drop to freezing or below during colder periods of the year. Further, there are sandstorms that can move whole sand dunes.

“The other side of the coin is maintenance,” says Waseem El Kot of HIT. “The truth is that maintenance is hardly an issue with AG Neovo displays – they have been built to be so sturdy as well as powerful.”

Credit for this durability must go to the distinctive metal housing wrought for added strength. But the jewel on the crown is a hardened glass exterior crafted by using AG Neovo’s proprietary NeoV Optical Glass technology. Not only resistant to scratch and impact damage, this best-in-class hard glass shields the panel from dust and moisture ingression.

The JO professionals are empowered to monitor and read the intended contents with precision; the built-in HDCP capacity allows them to efficiently display HD-format video and other DVI/HDMI-compliant digital content.
