VDC Display Systems Selected for MMD Program

May 11, 2020

Multi-Mission-DisplayCOCOA, FL–Video Display Corporation (OTC:VIDE) is pleased to announce that its VDC Display Systems subsidiary has been awarded a significant contract by a major US defense contractor for the delivery of its next generation Multi Mission Display (MMD) rugged display line. 

The VDCDS 42 inch high by ~24 feet long MMD Video Wall System provides a state-of-the-art command and control and situational awareness display capability in a fully ruggedized package. The MMD System is designed for foundation mounting in Aegis class ships. Each MMD System connects directly to the DiVDS video system, which provides a composite of 4 High Definition (HD) signals, and displays a single seamless image across a rigid Screen Panel system. In order to create this single seamless image, the system utilizes a pair of Power over Ethernet (PoE) feedback Calibration Sensors and specialized software to calibrate the imaging system. Finally, the MMD System provides a power interface module with conditioning and overload protection.

 The VDCDS Multi-Mission Display (MMD) Driver Package (MMD-DP) is a software mechanism for graphics rendering that supports in situ image processing operations such as, but not limited to, geometry correction, image stitching and edge blending between multiple projectors. The MMD-DP presents a single desktop to the Operating System (OS) which contains the entire pixel space of the combined Projectors. The MMD System’s available resolution is the composite pixel space of all attached Projectors less those pixels used for image processing.

VDC has been a key supplier to the US Navy for almost 30 years. VDC Display Systems designed and qualified the first MMD system for use on Aegis Class ships in 2011 and has provided various displays and display systems to the Navy and other military branches since 1992.
