Panasonic has rolled out a new high resolution LCD production monitor, the BT-LH2550, with a full 1920x1200-pixel in-plane switching panel. It measures 25.5 inches and features an expanded color gamut for vivid colors.
The LH2550 offers six color space settings—SMPTE, EBU, ITU-R BT.709, Adobe 2.2, Adobe 1.8 and D-Cinema—to expand its applications ranging from broadcast to post production.
Its image processing engine has a three-dimensional look-up table (LUT) that calibrates it to reproduce content according to the specific color standard selected.
The monitor is equipped with built-in waveform monitor and vectorscope functions that display all picture lines for signal level monitoring.
It also features pre-installed calibration software that allows it to be calibrated directly with color analyzers without using a PC. A split-screen function permits the simultaneously display of two video sources side-by-side from two different video inputs.
The monitor also features a Cine-gamma Film-Rec compensation function for compatible use with cameras such as the new AJ-HPX3700 and AJ-HPX2700 P2 HD VariCam camcorders and the AJ-HDC27 VariCam HD Cinema Camera.
