The Transvideo CineMonitorHD8 SBL Field Monitor with TitanHD Tx (V-Mount) is an 8" field monitor that can be powered using V-Mount-compatible batteries or other 11 to 36V DC sources. It is bundled with the TitanHD Tx, a wireless video and embedded audio transmitter that is compatible with the TitanHD Rx receiver.
The CineMonitorHD8 SBL monitor ships precalibraded following the D65 ITU-R BT.709-5 and D56 specifications. It features a 4:3, XGA resolution panel that includes two zones. A 16:9, 1024 x 576 resolution picture zone above, and a data zone below. The data zone can be used to display may types of useful data, including lens metadata, waveforms, histograms, SDI-embedded audio levels, and more. It also features overlays that superimpose over the video image, including user-definable makers, focus peaking, timecode, mattes, and OSD tally.
The monitor supports standard definition PAL and NTSC signals as well as 720p, 1080i and 1080p. It features an HD-SDI/SD-SDI input with reclocked loop through, an HDMI input on a mini type C connector, a dedicated composite input with loop through, and an analog combo jack on an 8-pin Lemo connector for component, RGB, and composite. The screen also adapts to non native aspect ratio, and can deinterlace; the aspect ratios it supports are: 1.33:1, 1.78:1, 2.40:1 and 3.20:1. In addition, framelines can be used to "safe-in" secondary aspect ratios in cases where multiple delivery formats are anticipated.
The included TitanHD Tx video transmitter will send up to 10-bit HD-SDI or HDMI signals and features less than 5 ms of latency. Because it operates over the 5 GHz band, the TitanHD does not require any special government licensing to use, unlike broadcast microwave equipment. It is designed for monitoring applications, to send the footage back to a video village or other central location so that directors, producers, or other production team members can remotely view the video as it is being shot. To complete the wireless system, the TitanHD Rx receiver is required.
