Image quality

There are many things that go into creating a high-precision/high-contrast, bright and crisp screen. We constantly develop our monitor technology, use only high-end materials and carefully calibrate every single monitor during production. As a result of these efforts, you can always rely on excellent image reproduction.

Ample space for efficient operation

A large 55-inch screen provides ample space for ship operators to view important nautical information from one or more applications in a single location. Images are displayed pixel by pixel in 4K UHD resolution (3840 × 2160) for precise observation.

High visibility

The wide dimming range of less than 1 to 610 cd/m2 allows operators to adjust to the appropriate brightness level for viewing during the day or at night, providing optimal visibility.

ECDIS-certified dimming: 400 cd/m2
calibrated for ECDIS
Formal approval dates for standards may vary. Contact EIZO for date of compliance for IEC 61174.
Calibrated for ECDIS

Backlight brightness, gamma, and RGB colour settings are calibrated at the factory so the monitor achieves accurate colour reproduction for meeting the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. The monitor meets IEC 61174, IEC 62288, and IEC 62388 international standards for ECDIS and RADAR applications. 

ECDIS indicator

The ECDIS indicator located on the front of the monitor is lit when the brightness and colour settings correctly meet the requirements for ECDIS. In the event the monitor's settings are adjusted such that the brightness is no longer supporting ECDIS standards, the light will automatically turn off.

Intuitive multi-touch operation

With our intelligent and intuitive multi-touch operating functions, the setting, control and daily operation is conceivably comfortable and simple.

Projective capacitive multi-touch screen for route planning

The DuraVision MDU5501WT is equipped with a particularly robust and reliable projective capacitive touch technology. The monitor allows operation with the finger or a special stylus. 

The spacious 55-inch chart monitor is a practical alternative to paper charts. Thanks to the approval by the most important classification societies, it is optimally suited for ECDIS, radar systems, command bridges and other applications. 

Multitouch interface

The screen can detect up to 10 simultaneous touches so multiple people can operate the monitor at the same time. The monitor is equipped with palm rejection which allows you to rest your hand or arm directly on the screen naturally without causing any unintended touch input. 

Multitouch interface
Touch buttons
Touch detection control

Users can easily turn touch detection on or off by pushing the button conveniently located on the monitor's outer rim. A button is located on two sides of the monitor for easy access.

Liquid detection

To prevent unintended touch input in the case of any liquid spillage on the screen, EIZO includes a function that detects spills. Once detected, the monitor will automatically disable touch functionality and re-enable it when the spill has been cleaned.

Fingerprint resistance
Fingerprint resistance

The DuraVision MDU5501WT's surface is coated with a fingerprint-resistant finish that minimizes the visibility of fingerprints left on the screen from touch interaction. 

Dedicated stylus

EIZO's dedicated touch stylus and holder are included with the monitor. 

Dedicated Stylus

Convenient operation

Equipment for comfortable working. With our intelligent and intuitive operating functions, setting, controlling and daily operation is extremely convenient and simple.

Fully flat design
Fully flat table design

The monitor can be laid horizontally and has a fully flat surface, allowing it to double as a table for laying out traditional paper charts when they are occasionally called for. The wide outer edges of the monitor also provide a place for the crew to conveniently set items or rest their hands without obstructing the view of the screen. 

Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture: everything at a glance

With the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) function, a second signal source can be displayed in a separate small screen area on the monitor. This allows two applications with navigation data to be viewed simultaneously. 

Picture-by-Picture (PbP) mode allows you to independently view up to two separate signal sources side by side, such as radar and navigation information.

Screen Rotator
Supported by Windows OS only.
EIZO Screen Rotator

EIZO Screen Rotator is a free software application that allows you to quickly rotate the image on the monitor by 180° with a single touch. This is helpful when multiple members of the crew are viewing the screen from opposite sides of the chart table.

Connection diversity

Work more flexibly thanks to special connection diversity. We equip DuraVision monitors with a variety of connections so that you can easily and conveniently integrate them into your environment and work processes.

Monitor control
Monitor control

The DuraVision MDU5501WT is equipped with a wide range of communication interfaces for remote monitor control such as brightness adjustment or powering the monitor on and off – RS232C, USB, RS485, RJ45 (Ethernet), and specialised port (Extended Keyboard). 

Multiple power inputs

In order to meet the needs of different installation environments, multiple power inputs are equipped, allowing you to power the monitor using either DC or AC connectors.


Durability and reliability

Thanks to continuous research and development of high-quality components and technologies, EIZO produces monitor solutions that are strong when it comes to quality and absolute reliability.


The monitor offers durability for use in harsh maritime environments, complying with the conditions for temperature, humidity, and vibration as defined in the IEC 60945 international standard for maritime navigation and radio communication equipment and systems. An IP65 rating for the front of the monitor ensures it can withstand dust ingress and is protected against low-pressure water jets. 

Approval from maritime classifications

The monitor meets the requirements for major maritime classifications with approvals for LR (UK), DNV GL (Norway/Germany), ABS (USA), and NK (Japan). 

Approval classification
Formal approval dates for classifications may vary.
Langlebige Zuverlässigkeit
Long-term reliability

The DuraVision MDU5501WT is built for 24-hour use and is backed by a 3-year manufacturer's warranty for long-term reliability.


EIZO considers longevity, sustainability and environmental friendliness to be main components of product quality. That’s why our products are produced in accordance with international environmental regulations and reduce resource consumption thanks to the long service life they offer.

Environmentally and socially conscious production

With the MDU5501WT, EIZO demonstrates that image and product quality go hand in hand with responsible planning, materials sourcing and production. This value allows you to safely invest in a modern and reliable solution.

Socially responsible production at EIZO

Sustainable and durable

The MDU5501WT is designed for a long service life that takes into account the entire lifecycle and impact on the environment - usually well above the warranty period. Spare parts are available up to ten years after the end of production. The monitor’s long service life and the ability to repair it save resources and the climate. When designing the MDU5501WT we paid attention to reducing resource consumption by using high-quality components and materials and being meticulous in production. 

Chart table stand is not included with the monitor.
