Lilliput BM230-4K overview

  • 1Description

Built into a hard case, the Lilliput BM230-4K is a 23" native UHD 4K monitor useful for both studio and field situations. The full capacity of the 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution 10-bit IPS panel can be driven at up to 30 fps by any of the three HDMI 1.4 inputs, or up to 60 fps by the single HDMI 2.0 input. Other inputs available on the back panel for HD and VESA sources include 3G-SDI (with a loop-through output), DVI, and VGA. Video signals input via any of these ports will be properly scaled to fit the entire screen. Analog audio from the RCA inputs or embedded digital audio from video inputs can be heard using the monitor's built-in speakers or the 3.5mm headphone output.

For power, this monitor accepts a wide range of voltages ranging from 12 to 24 VDC. In the studio, the included power supply plugs the BM230-4K into the wall, and the 75/100mm VESA mount can be utilized for mounting on a stand. The included tally connector passes tally information through to the monitor when connected to a switcher. While in the field, the monitor will accept battery power via the built-in V-mount plate. It can be stood up vertically using the rubber feet built into the monitor's hard case, and a sunshade is included for increased visibility outdoors.

Assignable Buttons
Using the four assignable buttons on the front panel, you can quickly turn any four essential monitoring tools on and off without venturing into the monitor's menu system.
Carry-On Enclosure
The included hard case/enclosure improves the robustness of the monitor's metal chassis, useful when venturing outside controlled environments. A rear opening gives easy access to all the monitor's ports and accessory mounts.
Supports Wireless HDMI (WHDI) Technology
With a separately available WHDI receiver, the BM230-4K can accept wireless HDMI signals from up to 50' away for a hassle-free cordless connection. With the WHDI system in place one transmitter can broadcast to multiple receivers, so no splitter is required for multi-monitor viewing.

    Lilliput BM230-4K reviews

    BM230-4K Carry-On 4K Monitor (V-Mount) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Production Monitor (After Some Mods) Overall, this is a great production monitor, and I'm glad to have purchased it. The biggest benefit (other than size) is the fact that it can be powered via battery or AC. That said, in order for the monitor to be placed on a rolling c-stand with a VESA mount, I needed to manually relocate the v-mount plate which was already installed by the manufacturer. After a little bit of elbow grease (and a little velcro), I was able to relocate the v-mount plate so that the monitor could be VESA-mounted and battery-powered. The monitor also comes with a sunshade that apparently is supposed to just work with the monitor. However, there are no magnets or anything on either the monitor or shade in order to make that for now, the shade is on the shelf.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very affordable field monitor for 4K For the money, you can't beat this monitor. We needed a 4K field monitor, but we didn't want to break the bank with something that cost more than our camera, so we started looking at the Lilliput as an option. After reading the specs and many reviews, I knew it was right for us. The only question was should we go for the 23 or the 15. With the price difference being only $100, the larger monitor seemed like the logical choice. BUT, be's heavy. Really heavy. The heft is largely due to the solid case built around it, but I feel like it's a fair trade-off when you see the beautiful UHD image and realize your clients aren't crowded around a 15 screen looking for detail. It's big, but it's beautiful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the fine print ! NO 4K SDI It is a good monitor for the price. HOWEVER, the SDI input is only HD - NOT 4k. After testing it for a good hour, I ended up going to the product specs and description and they negate to mention that ONLY the HDMI inputs can handle 4K. None of the others do. Now I need an SDI to HDMI converter to monitor NATIVE 4K from my camera. Good price, Does 4K, but the extra converter makes it more expensive than originally thought.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great low priced monitor This monitor is great for the price. Plenty of input options and I love the case that it comes in/with. It also seems surprisingly accurate. I wouldn't color grade with it, but for the crew and director to be able to see the shot on such a large 4K (UHD actually) monitor is a fantastic thing to have.
