Panasonic ships BT-LH80W LCD monitor, viewfinder
Panasonic has begun delivering the BT-LH80W 16:9 HD/SD LCD monitor for studio and field applications. The 7.9in monitor ships with an array of available accessories that reinforce its dual role as an HD monitor and widescreen color viewfinder.
The BT-LH80W offers production-level critical viewing, low 1.5A power consumption and a 3.3lb durable die-cast aluminum chassis. This 800 x 450-pixel resolution monitor/electronic viewfinder reproduces up to 16.7 million colors, closely matching the chromaticity of CRT monitors, and is compatible with many HD/SD formats including 1080/24PsF, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. The monitor features low image processing delay, a built-in waveform monitor and a diagonal line compensation function that reduces the occurrence of jagged noise in the diagonal direction.
