roda on the AFCEA 2015

roda presented its robust IT, this year on a bigger booth in the tent of the city hall Bad Godesberg.

The focus was on the new high resolution electronic situation display HEL4.0. Compact, rugged, mobile and for the first time with only 4 displays (previously 8) with a display resolution of up to 4K. The new device-independent operation (by tablet and laptop and others) has been demonstrated. The HEL 4.0 halves the interfering edges of the displays and can be assembled and disassembled faster than the previous models.

Besides HEL 4.0, the ultralight laptops and tablets/SolidPads as well as the improved light-enhancing rugged displays were heavily frequented by visitors.

The numerous visitors of the Bundeswehr, industry and press showed much interest and stayed sometimes for a longer discussion.

Lizard® RV11

Addition to the family of the ultraslim rugged notebooks from roda

roda computer GmbH from Lichtenau/Germany succeeded with a revolution on the mobile mission by the introduction of the World‘s first rugged ultra-slim and light notebook, the 13“ Lizard® RS11. Consequently, roda is continuing the success story by introducing the big brother Lizard® RV11, with 15,6“ display size.

Even though the RV11 now comes with a larger and touch display screen (1920x1080, Full-HD) the Lizard® excels on design, flatness (24mm/<1 inch) and weight (3,5kg/7,7 lbs), whereas equivialent rugged notebooks weigh more than 5 kg/11 lbs. This is enabled by milling the housing from solid aluminum, achieving higher rigidness.

There has been no compromising. The fan-less Lizard® fulfils the requirements of IP 65 protection (Sand and water), MIL-STD 810G (environment) and, optionally, MIL-STD 461F (EMC). Thus the Lizard® series qualifies for high mobility missions and applications in adverse conditions.

Powerful Intel®-Core i7-Processor, 8GB RAM, sunlight readable 15,6“ display (optional multi-touch and Corning® Gorilla®-Glass 3), a changeable 2,5“ SATA III SSD 600 GB Hard-disk and a Li-Polymer-battery (6040mAh) with an impressive run-time of almost 10 hours lists just an extract of attributes from the high-class configuration. Therefore, the Lizard® plays in the technological highest league and in this slim form factor it demonstrates the one and only rugged notebook, in the World.

Thus, minimum available space and low weight customised demands may be realised. In this manner, roda remains true to its own philosophy - by being the Master of customisation.
