The new unit features two auto switching SDI/HD-SDI inputs, along with a high-speed response with no blurring. It also offers one of the industry's lowest delays, realized by an image processing circuit that converts interlaced into progressive signals with no visible delays; a waveform monitor that graphically displays luminance levels from zero to 110 IRE in any of the monitor's four corners; and a Split Screen/Freeze Frame function for scene comparison and critical color matching.
The multi-format, self-contained unit is outfitted with a 1280 x 768 pixel WXGA-resolution panel and faithfully reproduces up to 16.7 million colors. With selectable color temperature, the monitor makes it easy to match different standards. Gamma is also adjustable, as is Cine Gamma (Film-Rec) compensation, specifically for monitoring with Panasonic's VariCam HD Cinema camera.
Priced at $3,400, the monitor is 3.2-inches deep and has a wide vertical and horizontal viewing angle of 176 degrees. It's compatible with multiple 1080/24PsF, 1080i, 720p and 480p/i formats.
