FLIR Introduces Raymarine Axiom XL Multifunction Displays New Flagship Raymarine Axiom XL Offers the Largest Display Sizes, Superior Integration, and Elegant Simplicity
FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) announced today the introduction of the Raymarine® Axiom™ XL line of multifunction displays (MFDs) and the immediate availability of two Axiom XL models. Designed for premium yachts and glass bridge installations, Axiom XL displays offer the largest size in the Axiom family and the superior performance and elegant simplicity that the award-winning Axiom line has delivered since its introduction.
Engineered to perform in extreme marine conditions, the Axiom XL family is fully waterproof and can be installed in both open cockpits and enclosed bridge stations. Each model uses in-plane switching (IPS) and Raymarine’s optical bonding display technology to deliver wider viewing angles, sharp contrast, and unmatched readability in bright sun. Available in 16-, 19-, 22- and 24-inch display sizes, Axiom XL’s edge-to-edge glass construction gives vessel designers the ability to create a seamless navigation helm.
Axiom XL is a powerful network and video integration platform featuring three Ethernet ports for connecting with network sensors or with additional Axiom, Axiom Pro, and Axiom XL family displays. This simplified integration allows boat designers greater flexibility when creating multi-display and multi-station navigation systems. Axiom XL’s native FLIR thermal imaging camera support enhances navigation awareness and safety, while HDMI input enables Axiom XL to serve as a remote touchscreen PC or entertainment display at the helm.
At the heart of each Axiom XL display is a fast quad core processor that supports Raymarine navigation, radar, sonar, and FLIR thermal technology for an all-in-one, full-high-definition (HD) display solution. Powered by Raymarine’s LightHouse 3 Operating System, Axiom XL displays offer an elegant, intuitive, uncluttered interface that is fast, fluid, and easily personalized for each captain’s navigation style. Captains have the choice of multi-touch screen control or the Raymarine RMK-10 keypad for complete remote system control of multiple Axiom XL displays.
“Axiom XL represents a significant milestone for the Raymarine brand,” said Gregoire Outters, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR Maritime. “The introduction of the Axiom line last year, followed by the Axiom Pro, received recognition by the marine industry and customers alike. With Axiom XL, we’re now delivering a glass bridge solution that brings simplicity and superior performance to larger yachts and our premium boat brand partners.”
The Axiom XL16 and X19 displays are available to order globally through FLIR’s network of marine electronics dealers. The Axiom XL24 will be available in July, followed by Axiom XL22 in September. Pricing for Axiom XL MFDs starts at $6,799.99 USD.
