JVC Professional Products, a division of JVC U.S.A., introduced two low-cost LCD monitors—the GD-191U and GD-171U Professional Series LCD monitors—that are designed for security applications.
“It’s not always easy for security professionals to find a balance between affordability and reliability,” said Ian Scott, vice president, Physical Security Group, JVC Professional Products. Therefore with the GD-191U and GD-171U monitors, “JVC delivers the best of both worlds,” low cost monitors that are durable and deliver excellent images at an attractive price, he said.
In addition, the GD-191U and GD-171U monitors provide SXGA (1280x1024) resolution, and deliver 5ms response time, 800:1 contrast ratio, and 250cd/m2 brightness, according to the company. Plus, each monitor features a built-in 3D comb filter to reduce composite video processing artifacts and ensure a sharp picture with less noise. Built for 24/7 operation, the GD-191U and GD-171U monitors feature non-glare screens housed in stylish, slim bezels.
Both 4:3 monitors feature a variety of inputs, including two BNC and one S-Video input, each with a corresponding looping output. There is also an RGB input with its own stereo mini-jack audio input, as well as a pair of RCA audio inputs that are shared between the video sources. A simple user interface on the front of the unit provides easy access to the on-screen menu, input selection, volume, power, and auto image adjustment controls. The monitors also feature a tilt adjustable stand for comfortable viewing, plus two built-in speakers for audio monitoring.
