The BT-LH1850 is an 18.5” high-performance HD/SD LCD production monitor with full 1366 x 768 resolution and impressive new features, including an HD and SD closed caption display, vectorscope, waveform monitor for R/G/B signals, an RS-485 serial remote and an eco-friendly panel with mercury-free LED backlight that provides remarkably low-power consumption (22W; representing a more than a 50% reduction from the prior LH series model). With HD and HDMI connectivity, the versatile LH1850 also offers a 3D lookup table (LUT) which produces faithful color hues and smooth gradation, together with quick-response motion images.
Using SD SDI or video input, the LH1850 can display closed captions and supports both the EIA/CEA-708 HD-SDI and the EIA/CEA-608 SD-SDI closed captioning standards, and can display up to eight windows simultaneously. Like the monitor’s waveform monitoring display function, the LH1850’s vectorscope can now display all lines of the SDI input signal (Y/R/G/B). Various markers can be displayed in both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios, including aspect (4:3; 13:9; 14:9; CNSCO 2.39; CNSCO 2.35; 2:1; and VISTA in 16:9 mode), safe area and center. A simple cross hatch overlay can be displayed to check the tilt of the camera. The monitor’s Pixel-to-Pixel function displays inputted video without any resizing and a still frame display function can freeze a frame and display it as a sub-screen. The color audio level meter displays the input level of embedded audio and a Time Code display shows the value of the VITC, LTC or UB time code.
The LH1850 incorporates diverse video inputs and remote terminals to realize superb operability in a system configuration. Two SDI inputs (SDI1/SDI2) with an automatic HD/SD switching function are standard and support embedded audio. A next-generation HD Link is featured to allow high-quality connection of a wide range of digital HD products with an HDMI terminal, such as blu-ray/DVD players. Digital and analog DVI-I (Single Link) input is also provided.
