The Panasonic BT-LH1700W offers a high-speed response with no blurring and a waveform monitor that graphically displays luminance levels from zero to 110 IRE in any of the monitor’s four corners.
Panasonic Broadcast has announced the availability of the BT-LH1700W production-quality HD/SD LCD monitor for studio and field applications.
The 17in space-saving, lightweight monitor can be AC- or DC-powered to work in virtually any environment from the edit room to the production truck, from newsgathering to field production.
Features include two auto-switching SDI/HD-SDI inputs, waveform monitoring and freeze frame/split screen. The BT-LH1700W offers a high-speed response with no blurring, low delay realized by an image processing circuit that converts interlaced into progressive signals with no visible delays and a waveform monitor that graphically displays luminance levels from zero to 110 IRE in any of the monitor’s four corners.
The multi-format, self-contained unit is outfitted with a 1280 x 768 pixel WXGA-resolution panel and reproduces up to 16.7 million colors. With selectable color temperature (D9300K/D6500K/D5600K; user settable and three variable setting for high and low RGB), the monitor makes it easy to match the house standard. Likewise, gamma is adjustable and Cine Gamma (Film-Rec) compensation is included for monitoring with Panasonic’s VariCam HD Cinema Camera.
