Panasonic BT-LH1710 17" Monitor Overview

The LH1710 incorporates the latest panel and image processing technology to provide higher contrast, improved black levels, and more functionality, at a price that fits your budget. The LH1710's new 1280 x 768 In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel delivers broadcast- quality video reproduction with 10-bit image processing for improved color performance. The monitor's newly-designed image processing engine has a 3D look-up table (LUT) that calibrates it to reproduce accurate images according to the specific color standard selected.

The LH1710 adds a wider range of essential functions including built-in embedded audio support, vectorscope, pixel-to-pixel display, cross hatch overlay, audio level meters (up to 8 channels), time code, headphone jack and five function buttons, in addition to the built-in waveform monitor that many professionals found invaluable in the BT-LH1700W.

The LH1710 is equipped with two HD-SDI/SDI auto-switching inputs with a switched output, and a DVI-D input for connection to digital devices with a DVI-D output.

Panasonic BT-LH80W 7.9" Monitor Overview

The BT-LH80W is a thin and lightweight liquid crystal monitor designed especially for broadcasting service and business use. It is equipped with a 7.9-inch V (effective display area) liquid crystal display panel. It can be used as a VF (viewfinder) for broadcasting and business cameras.

Equipped with a new IP conversion circuit, the circuit processing greatly reduces time delays

A new I/P conversion circuit has been introduced that converts and generates SD and HD interlace signals to high-precision progressive signals without generating time delays per field.

Equipped with a diagonal line correction processing circuit

By detecting correlations in the field in the diagonal direction in addition to the vertical direction, the unit performs the optimum interpolation to minimize the rough noise occurring in the diagonal direction and create a smooth image.

New functions that support focus adjustments
  • FOCUS-IN-RED function
    The section of the image that is being focused is displayed in an easy-to-understand red, making camera focus adjustments very easy.
  • PIXEL TO PIXEL function
    The input signal is displayed without being resized, greatly facilitating camera focus adjustments. If you are not resizing the image, you can check the image by expanding a 1080/60i signal to the equivalent of an image approximately 19 inches wide.
Thin, lightweight, compact and low energy consumption

The unit has a compact body that makes the most of the thin and lightweight characteristics of LCD panels, with a depth of 64.7 mm (2-9/16 inches) and a weight of 1.5 kg (3.3 lb). Further, it is compatible with HD and has low energy consumption.
