Ruige TL-S1850HD monitor in use at the UN in New York.

New York — The United Nations has taken delivery of 52 Ruige TL-S1850HD 18.5-inch professional picture monitors for use at its international headquarters in New York. This latest order follows the UN’s purchase of 73 TL-S1850HD monitors in December 2012.

“The Ruige TL-S1850HD monitors were originally selected after a very careful comparison of a wide range of displays,” said Jian Ma, general manager of Ruige. “They are being used primarily for videoconferencing, which saves a lot of people a lot of time and lot of travel. The UN staff were impressed by the high quality picture, long term stability and excellent after-sales support. They also appreciated the ease with which we were able to customize the displays to allow control via RS-232 serial ports. TL-S1850HD monitors were therefore the logical choice for this latest project which relates to the UN’s simultaneous language-translation activity.”

“Ruige TL-S1850HD monitors are widely used in television news production, OB trucks and broadcast playout centers,” said Tommy Goodson, president of AV BrandBuilder Corporation, a Ruige dealer. “They have all the features expected in a high-end picture monitor, including tally indicator, lateral and vertical scan adjustment, 4:3/16:19 aspect ratio selector, safe frame marker. Power requirement is 25 Watts from a universal mains adapter or direct to the display's 12 Volts DC input.”

The TL-S1850HD is equipped with a range of connection ports, including Y/Pr/Pb component in/out, audio in, VGA in, HDMI in plus HD/SD-SDI in/out. Performance figures include 300 candela per square metre brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 5 milliseconds minimum response time, 170 degree (horizontal) and 160 degree (vertical) viewing angles, and 0.3 mm dot pitch.
