Core Capabilities / Advantages

ECDIS Color Calibration

  • The Winmate Marine Displays and Panel PCs can be adjusted daylight, dusk, or night mode to accommodate any lighting situation. The CIE x, CIE y, CIE z are measured from 63 color tokens per mode (Day, Night, and Dusk). These color settings are calibrated at the factory to achieve accurate color reproduction referred to by the IEC 61174 Standard. In the ECDIS-color calibrated models, quick function keys allow instant brightness adjustment to any three modes.

ECDIS Color Calibration

DNV certificate

  • The DNV certificate is considered a high-quality seal, certifying the suitability of a Marine display, rugged panel PC, and embedded PC for use in the oceanic sector. The IEC requirements define maritime computing solutions' standard quality, safety, and security.



The present name has been in place since the 2013 merger between DNV (Det Norske Veritas) and GL (Germanischer Lloyd). The name simplification is a natural consequence of a completed merger and has operated as a fully integrated company for several years now.

Remi Eriksen, Group President, and CEO said, “We merged two leading companies with complementary strengths and market positions, and combining the two names was the right solution in 2013. However, it was not a name that rolled off the tongue, and many customers already refer to the company as DNV. Our brand is used by many of our customers to build trust towards their stakeholders, and a simpler name will be an even stronger trust mark for our customers in the future, but still carries with it all our strengths and proud 157-year-old legacy with a purpose to safeguard life, property and the environment.”

IEC 60945 Certification

  • Approval to satisfy the industry's stringent security and safety demands. All instruments and components used in the ship's bridge, even those that form a minor part of the critical framework, must be evaluated under the IEC 60945 criteria and regulations. DNV-GL (or some of the other certified and identified third-party communities of distinction) will perform an audit.



Equipment wished to be used in navigation and radio communication systems is to comply with IEC Publication No. 60945, "Maritime navigation and radio communication equipment and systems – General Requirements- Method of testing and required test results."

Ultimate Touch Experience

  • Winmate Marine display and Panel PCs are built with optical bonding technology. It offers an accurate touch experience, ruggedness, and longevity. The optically bonded monitor also provides better clarity and sunlight readability, suitable for bridge workstations, ship command centers, etc.
