From its inception in 1973, U.S.-based General Digital has delivered to the market scores of standard and custom flat panel display products, display enhancements, and software solutions.

In 1977, General Digital invented the VuePoint™, the world’s first gas plasma, flat panel serial terminal with integral touch screen, which then evolved into the VuePoint II™ and then the Smart VuePoint™. In 1992, long before anyone realized the benefits of such a design, we introduced the SlimLine™, a 2U high (3.50"), "flip-up" LCD monitor with an integral keyboard and pointing device.

Though many "copycat" devices are widely available today, only General Digital’s ruggedized, specialized and customized products are built to last for years, while offering the greatest flexibility necessary to keep pace in today’s rapidly changing market. As a matter of fact, much of our VuePoint and VuePoint II product line is still in service today in the Printing, Flight Simulation and Powerplant industries, and many first-generation SlimLines are still in use by the U.S. Navy. The VuePoint product line has proved to be so popular, that a third-generation VuePoint III™ LCD terminal was developed in response to customer demand.

General Digital continues to serve the marketplace with advanced design and engineering capabilities as evidenced in our diverse line of hardware products, display enhancement servcies, contract manufacturing and software engineering services. Our hardware products range from simple  terminals to industrial- and military-grade LCD monitors to all manner of custom-built display products, all manufactured in America.

In addition, we continue to develop innovative solutions for a constantly evolving marketplace, as can be evidenced by our numerous configurations of flat panel LCD display systems and computers, such as:
