Every display needs a source. For example, in an office setting, some people may have fixed monitors attached to an external computer, while others may have a laptop with a screen and processing power combined in one portable package. Ultimately, what equipment you decide to use depends on what is the best fit for your application.
Military and other demanding environments are no different. For some applications, processing power is critical—requiring a large external computer that would run video to external display sources. However, introducing external connectors also introduces vulnerability to the system, which can be unacceptable in certain tactical environments. Applications such as these require an embedded computer within the system, allowing for a singular ruggedized solution. Often times a tradeoff occurs, where a system may be installed with just enough processing power to be able to receive data and video from an external source.
