Panasonic unveils 17in LCD production monitor

Panasonic has announced the BT-LH1760 LCD monitor, a 17in production monitor that offers wide off-axis viewing and provides the motion handling and latency advantages formerly only available in CRT monitors.

The HD widescreen offers a vectorscope function in addition to Panasonic’s standard built-in waveform monitoring function.

Using a new In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with 1280 x 768-pixel native resolution, the LH1760 reproduces color faithfully. The monitor features a 120Hz refresh rate, double that of standard 60Hz LCD monitors, that enables the monitor to handle fast motion content.

The LH1760 features an array of input and outputs to support virtually any production task, including DVI-D input, two auto-switching HD-SDI/SDI inputs, component video (Y/Pb/Pr), RGB, PC RGB, external sync and speaker and headphone outputs. Additional standard features include embedded audio, time code, closed-captioning, and an eight-channel audio level meter (via SDI).
