Button backlight is also user settable to red or green with adjustable intensity.


  • 2 x SDI (Serial Digital Interface) up to 1080p 25&30Hz and including 1080i 50&60 Hz and 720p 50&60 Hz.
  • 1 x PC input.
  • 4 x analogue video inputs.
  • 1 x video output.

On Screen

  • A maximum of one of the SDI and PC inputs and two analogue video inputs can be on screen simultaneously.

D9QUW – 9” widescreen ¼ HD Display

Black Opal  D9QUW

Black Opal D9QUW

The 9” wide screen HD display is an excellent solution for HD applications requiring smaller displays. It has a screen resolution of 960 pixels x RGB x 540 lines (¼ HD) and it can accept a HD resolution of 1080i at 50 & 60Hz or 1080p at 25/30Hz. The image can be downscaled with virtually no loss of fidelity to fit the screen (no more letter-boxing or wasted screen area, no unnecessary interpolation).The housings of this model are machined from solid Aluminium billet but with size and weight suitable for airborne applications as well as land and sea.

D15UW – 15” widescreen HD display

This is the real deal for HD customers. With a resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), this is currently the smallest LCD module capable of displaying full HD resolution. It can accept a HD resolution of 1080i at 50 & 60Hz or 1080p at 25/30Hz with no down scaling or loss of image quality – a true full HD display in a 15” diagonal package.

MemorEyes HD

A natural partner for Black Opal HD displays is the MemorEyes HD recorder.This product is a solid-state device offering an unprecedented level of versatility and interactivity for those conducting intelligence – gathering operations. You can record audio and video any time any place: military and police surveillance, monitoring, evidence acquisition, and so on.The MemorEyes Graphic User Interface (GUI) puts system control at the operator’s fingertips. The five modes of operation and simple graphical presentations mean that, in any mode, only 3 buttons are required to perform any function.Alternately, the MemorEyes HD may be completely controlled via a Black Opal display.The MemorEyes HD employs the H.264 compression scheme.

1,000th Digital Rangefinder Module Shipped for Hand Held Application

RangePRO Model L-GM5

Laserdyne recently shipped the 1000th unit of just one model of RangePRO laser rangefinder. This contract continues, and other RangePRO models continue to sell along side it, making the RangePRO family a highly popular and successful group of products.

This particular model was selected by the customer for integration into a hand-held forward observation/target acquisition system.

It was chosen for its compactness, its robustness, the benefits of Laserdyne’s unique digital rangefinding technology, and the customisation engineered by Laserdyne to make it mission-perfect.

This model is a member of Laserdyne’s flash-lamp pumped series which employ our Nd:YAG/OPO laser engine which has been proven over years of use. They are noted for their compact structure and their reliability over a wide temperature range. These laser modules are used in single shot and low rep. rate (to 1Hz) models.

The other group of RangePRO laser rangefinder modules is our diode-laser pumped series which have been refined for military use by Laserdyne in recent years resulting in compact laser modules that represent the state-of-the-art in diode-laser pumped eyesafe laser technology. Like the single-shot type, they also exhibit excellent stability over a wide temperature range. They can be operated from single shot to 30Hz continuous.

Advanced Digital Rangefinding Technology

Laserdyne’s unique rangefinding techniques extract more useful data from a single ranging pulse than any other method on the market today.

Our advanced digital signal processing technology provides accurate, reliable ranging with true multiple-target detection capability – making range gating an option but NOT a necessity. Real-time processing of the returned waveform provides range data for any selected target.

Only the RangePRO family of laser rangefinders has the capacity to determine and report all returns, even small returns where the signal is buried in noise, and provide the user with a simple means of determining the range to all returns along the line of sight after a single firing of the laser. The user can easily interrogate the system for detailed data on each target.


For even modest quantities (say 50+) Laserdyne can customise a laser rangefinder solution to suit the application, making Laserdyne and RangePRO laser rangefinder modules a ‘must consider’ for any rangefinder application.

Xtreme Displays – Airborne Special

Laserdyne has developed the Xtreme range of Black Opal flat panel displays, dedicated to specific applications.

The Xtreme Air 8 model is an 8.4″ display, specially designed for airborne use.

This is a reduced weight/reduced cost model, relaxing some of the stringent sealing and other measures required for land and seaborne operations. It retains the Black Opal advanced video features and high level of ruggedisation.
