Orlando, FL (January 4, 2017) – The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of graphical user interface development software to the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries announces the use of its GL Studio® software for the development of the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace InControl© Touch ™ Pro infotainment system. Embedded into the F- Pace’s touch screen infotainment system, GL Studio serves as the user interface layer for the unit.

The first Jaguar luxury performance SUV, the 2017 F-Pace features the InControl Touch Pro infotainment unit which is the multimedia hub for the navigation, music, phone, climate and driver assistance systems. Jaguar used GL Studio for the creation of the infotainment and rear seat entertainment system interfaces. These interfaces were conceived entirely in-house at Jaguar. The F-Pace is available with the InControl Touch Pro system featuring a 10.2 inch enhanced touchscreen. The simple and intuitive InControl Touch Pro system, featuring GL Studio, enables the touch screen displays to respond to common ‘pinch to zoom’ and ‘swipe’ gestures to provide ease of use for drivers.

“GL Studio helps to provide users with a crisp and interactive user interface,” said Christopher Giordano, Vice President of DiSTI’s Automotive Division and DiSTI’s JLR Program Manager. “The InControl Touch Pro delivers a new level of fidelity and performance in infotainment systems and we are excited to be a part of Jaguar Land Rover’s industry leading infotainment platforms.”

The highly responsive interface comes from GL Studio’s native object code generation and the fastest runtime software in the industry. The new infotainment unit is 10 times faster than the previous system.

DiSTI worked with Jaguar Land Rover and their other industry leading Tier 1 suppliers to deliver this revolutionary system. After a highly competitive year-long evaluation process, Jaguar Land Rover adopted and standardized on DiSTI’s GL Studio toolkit for its unmatched performance, flexibility, rapid support, and ability to produce feature rich high quality 3D embedded applications. Strategically crafted to successfully meet or exceed internal design demands, Jaguar Land Rover implemented the use of GL Studio company-wide for all embedded HMI prototyping and production target Infotainment and Rear Seat Entertainment systems.
