In order to put images to an integrated dashboard display, the Nickl ImageCutter30-CD tailores the image geometries and timings to fit the needs of the dashboard display. This signal can then be put to the display interface via the Nickl ImageHub30 which is especially adapted to the target vehicle. The image can be zoomed, shrinked cropped or expanded to the target resolution. For example, a PC signal of 1024 x 768 dots can be cropped to 800x480 dots thus achieving a pixel-by-pixel mapping.

The tailored signal is routed via a standard Ethernet patch cable from the ImageCutter30-CD to the ImageHub30. This is done via AC coupling technique allowing DC isolation of the ground nodes.

The Nickl ImageCutter30-CD is housed in a robust aluminium case.
