ANT presents U-Touch iChest at Monaco
One of the highlights on the ANT stand will be the U-Touch iChest. This touch-screen technology, tailor made for superyachts, offers a complete interactivity solution with audio visual networks, navigation and security all controlled from one central hub.
The advanced built-in computer of the iChest offers the ability to run advanced navigation software for mapping, weather reporting and radar, as well as a full entertainment platform with built-in speakers and a USB port. An Internet connection enhances system features, enabling email, chatting, surfing and downloads, as well as real-time updates and support for software applications. The technology also operates as a home office using a Windows PC, with video conferencing capabilities available via a built-in camera.
Enough about how it works. The iChest also looks the part, with a flat toughened glass surface and anti-reflective and scratch-proof coating it is entirely functional in its environment. There are also grab rails for stability.
“ANT specializes in supplying and integrating ‘must-haves’ for the luxury yacht market and we are delighted to be showcasing our latest innovations at Monaco in conjunction with our partners,” said Paul Cook, business development director of ANT.
“Integrated systems offering ease of use is high on our discerning clients’ priority list, making the U-Touch iChest highly sought after for superyacht owners. In addition, the Stealth ASD is highly desirable due to the small, unobtrusive nature of its detection intake hole compared to traditional large detection units, and it can be easily retrofitted,” he added.
Advanced New Technologies (ANT) is a subsidiary of FUNA a safety systems and entertainment solutions supplier. The companies were acquired by L-3 SAM Electronics, a division of the L-3 Marine & Power Systems Group in 2011.
