Meet the New Toughbook PDRC

Today Panasonic unveiled a new Toughbook Permanent Display Removable Computer (PDRC), which combines a vehicle-mounted display and full-functioning keyboard for heightened accessibility inside public safety vehicles.  We’ve upgraded the new PDRC to include a brighter touchscreen display (40 percent brighter than previous version), improved user visibility and a reduction in connection cables.

The PDRC works seamlessly with other Toughbook mobile computers, providing a secure and ergonomic system for transferring mission-critical data in the field.  In addition, the PDRC also helps broaden the functionality of ultra-mobile devices to include activities like writing detailed reports.  Public safety users also have the ability to mount the PDRC independently from the connected Toughbook mobile computer for easy viewing and access.

Take a look at this recent post for more info about how one agency, the Tulsa Police Department, is utilizing PDRCs with rugged Toughbook U1 handhelds.   If you’re attending the APCO International Annual Conference in Houston next week, be sure to stop by the Panasonic booth (#923) to see the new PDRC as well.
