  • A high-technology supplier to several different markets, Barco defines its avionics business as the liquid crystal displays it provides for aircraft cockpits. The company jealously guards the process by which it produces the ruggedized LCDs.

    "We do the ruggedization of the LCD display. We don’t depend on any external ruggedization house," said Kristof Vierin, Barco’s marketing director. "We buy industrial LCD glass complete with the mechanics. We strip the backlight source, we strip the filters, we strip the mechanics. The only thing we keep is the LCD glass and that’s a very fragile piece. If you put it in into an aircraft it will break. Our ruggedization process is a bit of black magic which took us about three years to master."
