The simulator display units have been upgraded to EIS2 specifications (“square edge” vs “rounded edge” plastic vacuum covers). EIS2 display units facilitate LCD display technology and have a slightly different ECAM system. EIS1 uses CRT displays which you will only find in older MSN Airbus aircraft. The avionics suite Jeehell FMGS has the functionality to simulate both EIS1 and EIS2.
To upgrade the display units specific LCDs from Vitrolight (1280×505 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio) were obtained. These LCDs fit within the Main Instrument Panel (MIP). Removal of part the metal structure is still required for the fitting of the LCDs.

Vitrolight can also provide a custom firmware so no company logo or information headers appears when the displays are powered; this is helpful if you connect the displays to relays for correct aircraft bus logic operations.
3D prints of the display unit bezel (thank you Thomas) were attached to a 20% dark smoke tinted glass and the plastic MIP covers to complete the illusion.
how can i contact you privately?
Hi Fabio – you can reach me here https://soarbywire.com/contact/
Hi Ben, are these 3D printed bezels available?
Yes – you can email Thomas at email@example.com
do you have a control board for the monitor, or are you using LVDS
The narrow displays are a wonderful idea – unfortunately the model VLT190-SBL-SXGA-148.5 is no longer available and twscreen no longer has any wide displays in its range.
The answer to my query was very clear: “We don’t provide any bar displays any more”.
Now good advice is quite expensive. Before I start searching for hours on Alibaba – has anyone found a replacement?
Your options is to ask George at Vitrolight (Vitrolight.com) or try the RV088Y4G-N00 panel (higher resolution, but unfortunately you will need 6 of them)
Thanks for the hint – 6 displays would be quite cool. Almost original…
But I’ve written a mail to George now (You mean vitrolight.com and not vivolight – right?)
If I have to buy a larger number – maybe I can organize a collective order for interested parties in Germany/Europe…
