Leading cockpit electronics supplier Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) supplies a range of advanced driver information and information displays, including new dual view technology, for the Jaguar F-PACE, the automaker's first performance crossover. Visteon's high-line 12.3-inch fully reconfigurable cluster and displays for Jaguar's latest infotainment system provide the driver interface for many of the F-PACE's new communications features.
Visteon's 8-inch single view and 10-inch single and dual view displays are part of Jaguar's new infotainment system. The optional dual view display incorporates significant improvements in display clarity, offering the highest resolution automotive display of its kind. By splitting light into left and right components, dual view displays can show different content - such as navigation for the driver and video for the passenger - that is only visible in the user's viewing angle.
The instrument cluster is the latest generation of Visteon's industry-first fully reconfigurable cluster platform first launched on Jaguar Land Rover's Range Rover and Jaguar XJ models. The cluster's 12.3-inch digital screen can be reconfigured in up to four different themes, including full navigation map view. Visteon's has also implemented enhancements in software development and graphics performance to include true 3-D rendering capability.
"Visteon and Jaguar Land Rover have a longstanding collaborative partnership - particularly in the areas of instrument clusters and displays - which has resulted in several first-to-market introductions of new technology," said Visteon President and CEO Sachin Lawande. "Holding top two market-leading positions in instrument clusters and displays globally, Visteon's expertise combined with Jaguar Land Rover's rich feature content creates an engaging user experience in the luxury vehicle segment."
Visteon supplies three versions of the information display integrated in the F-PACE's InControl Touch infotainment system. The highly responsive multi-touch 8-inch single view display is fitted as standard, while a 10-inch single view display is included on the optional InControl Touch Plus, which is only available on the F-PACE - both offering significant improvements in display performance.
As a further option, Visteon's enhanced dual view technology simultaneously presents two crystal-clear, high-quality images - with no interference - in one display. Split into two 1280x542 (135 dpi) views, this 10-inch display is the highest resolution dual view display on the market - offering the same high resolution as single view displays and ensuring that dual view customers no longer need to accept an inferior user experience.
The displays also include a capacitive touch panel, capable of supporting multi-touch (up to 10 touches simultaneously) and simple, intuitive pinch, zoom and slide controls - much like using a tablet.
