Default Dynon Announces SkyView HDX - The Premier SkyView Experience

Announcing SkyView HDX - The Premier SkyView Experience



We're excited to announce SkyView HDX - The Premier SkyView Experience.

SkyView HDX is the new flagship SkyView system from Dynon. SkyView HDX features improved displays, beautiful design, unrivaled control ergonomics, and an upgraded touch interface. SkyView HDX displays are compatible with all existing SkyView components and feature identical mounting profiles and electrical connections.



Clear, Vibrant Displays: SkyView HDX features brighter, higher-resolution HD touchscreen displays with wider viewing angles and improved anti-reflective properties for the sharpest picture ever.*

Beautiful Design: SkyView HDX?s modern, elegant design features robust metal and glass construction that is worthy of being in your aircraft.

Unrivaled Control Ergonomics: SkyView HDX expands the SkyView philosophy of combining full physical controls with a touchscreen. SkyView HDX?s angled control panel allows for natural hand positioning, reducing fatigue. The wide, sculpted ledge allows you to anchor your hand for precise control in turbulence. New knobs have positive and crisp movement, and all controls are now fully-backlit for night flight.

Improved Touch Interface: SkyView HDX features icon-driven touch controls and simplified screen navigation for reduced workload. The new engine monitor instrument band along the bottom of the screen affords an ideal instrument scan. The expansive glass display features edge-to-edge touchability with no bezel in the way.

Capable and Compatible: SkyView HDX utilizes the same components and modules as existing SkyView systems. It also features the same mounting footprint and wiring as other SkyView displays, allowing drop-in upgrades for pilots already flying behind SkyView. SkyView HDX displays can also work side-by-side with SkyView Touch and SkyView Classic displays.

SkyView HDX will be available in both 7? and 10? touchscreen versions. The 10? SV-HDX1100 display will be priced at $4,490.00. The 7? SV-HDX800 will be priced at $3,190.00.

SkyView HDX is expected to be available Fall 2016.

For those of you at the big show, stop by the booth in Hangar D to take a peek at our prototypes.

Thanks!

Default Looks great!

I like the EMS display format at the bottom of the screen. Is that feature going to roll over to the current Skyview systems?

Same here.... and the map looks cleaner by using a vertical status bar instead of overlays on the map.

I hope it's a SW update to the older units.

YES! I have been longing for a cleaner map page or a declutter button. This would help in that regard for sure. I hope its available in the software update.

Nope Dynon says screen layout will not be available for the Skyview Classic or touch. Too bad, I got excited about it for nothing. We have been asking for that feature for a long time. We got our wish but just have to buy a new display to get it.

Bummer....


Also the "drop-in replacement" bit might not be too easy if you have switches under an existing Skyview unit. The 'shelf' looks like it might get in the way.

Question, is the screen viewing area taller with the buttons and knobs rotated down and out?
