ChartWorld launched its next generation eGlobe G2+ ECDIS, reported by the company to be the world's first 4K ECDIS..

“ENCs and ECDIS, like paper charts before them, are at the heart of modern navigation," said Steven Schootbrugge CEO, ChartWorld, in a press release on the product. "One of the great advantages of digital navigation is our ability to navigate more accurately and update charts quickly as more detailed, or even specific, information becomes available.”

ChartWorld’s larger Ultra High Definition 32-inch screen is designed to provide crystal-clear chart presentation and touchscreen functionality, while its processors provide the requisite speed and reliability.

Schootbrugge noted that for many shipping companies the move to 4k is not simply a tech upgrade, but a necessary risk-management tool, “It’s becoming unacceptable that your smart phone or TV is easier to use, has greater definition, and is more accurate than the ECDIS unit on an oil tanker or container ship. The consequences and cost of not keeping up with beneficial technological advances are just too high.”
