The Panasonic BT-LH2550 is a 26" widescreen monitor designed for broadcast and studio applications. The LCD has sophisticated technology to improve upon color space while utilizing advanced processing technology which can reproduce color and contrast qualities exceeding traditional CRT monitors. The model is also capable of displaying HDTV formats and frame rates along with NTSC and PAL systems.
The BT-LH2550 is suitable for broadcast and professional applications. The monitor compensates for RGB accuracy in 256 discrete steps. The rated gamma properties (g = 2.2) are reproduced and the gradation suitable for broadcasting is achieved. Color temperature is selectable from 3 preset values, 9300K, 6500K and 5600K as well as totally custom settings ranging from 3000K to 9300K.
Diagonal Line Compensation
A special circuit compensating for noise caused from diagonal lines has been developed for the BT-LH2550. This processing reduces the occurrences of jagged noise in the diagonal direction, not just vertically in the field, by detecting correlations and making optimal interpolations.
Color Space Conversion
The BT-LH2550 uses a technology to produce the same EBU-based colors as CRT monitors. Colors on CRTs appear different from those in LCD monitors due to slight differences in the monitor's chromatic range. Color-Space Conversion compensates for these differences.
Analog and Digital Inputs
This monitor is compatible with multiple HD and SD formats. Two SDI inputs with automatic switching between HD and SD comes standard. The monitor is also equipped with one SDI output, a Component input (Y/Pb/Pr) with RGB switching, Y/C and Composite Video. The RGB input selection is compatible with computer input.
The BT-LH2550 will display the input signal as a waveform image. The waveform monitor screen can be picture-in-picture on top the video image and the overlay picture can be placed in any of the screen's four corners.
