IPE 2011 Monitor Sightings

We just got back from the International Poultry Expo (IPE) that went on right here in Atlanta.  There were a lot of great booths at the show, but it was especially exciting to visit those that had our monitors displayed.

One booth had multiple Panel Mount Monitors incorporated into various machines.  One 19″ Panel Mount Monitor was mounted in a detection system machine that spots any bones or other contaminants in the food products.  Another 19″ Panel Mount Monitor was integrated into a machine that uses water jets to cut and size poultry.
