Raymarine has announced the launch of the e165 at HISWA, which opened yesterday at the NDSM Shipyard in Amsterdam. The latest addition to the award winning range of eSeries MFDs (multi-function displays), the e165 sports a full 15.4” 16:9 wide-format display.
The HISWA In-Water Boat Show in Amsterdam is taking place from 4th to 9th September 2012. The event is divided into three nautical theme worlds; Adventure, Pleasure and Luxury. A selection of Dutch and international companies will be presenting the latest wonders in boat design, plus there will be a variety of new nautical products, clothing and accessories on show.
The e165 sits in the same footprint as a traditional 14” screen, giving 20% more screen for the same helm or dash space and will be launching at HISWA.
The arrival of the e165 means that eSeries MFDs are available in four sizes; 7”, 9”, 12” and the new 15.4” screen. eSeries MFD’s are able to network up to six displays plus sonar, radar, thermal and other accessories. The super-bright LCD displays are backlit with LEDs to improve overall power efficiency and provide maximum linear brightness control.
The new e165 has three processors; a dual core main processor and a third dedicated graphics processor to provide high quality graphics and video and instantaneous chart redraws. The e165 is easy to use thanks to the latest version of Raymarine’s LightHouse user-interface, and utilises the full power capability of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The dedicated inbuilt Wi-Fi combined with Raymarine’s new apps enables live video from the e165 to be streamed direct to tablets and smartphones in real time. Simply put; navigation charts, thermal video, radar or sonar information on the eSeries can be accessed and controlled (RayRemote and RayControl apps) from anywhere on board.
Available with optional Silver-level Navionics cartography on microSD (upgradeable to Gold and Platinum on chart chip), the new e165 eSeries HybridTouch MFD starts from €4,895 excluding tax/€5,825.05 including tax.
