SWIT S-1173 Overview

The 17.3" Full HD Waveform Studio LCD Monitor with V-mount battery plate from SWIT offers a 17.3" IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD panel and Full HD resolution. It also features a horizontal and vertical viewing angle of 160°, an LED backlight, and a 700:1 contrast ratio for accurate color reproduction. It also supports video analysis assistant patterns that include waveform (Y/Pb/Pr/R/G/B), vectorscope, histogram (R/G/B/Y) to convert the digital video quality info (luma, color, saturation, etc) to patterns (which can be switched on/off individually), and you can select display position (up/down/left/right), size, color, and translucence.

The LCD also supports SDI 16-channel and HDMI 8-channel embedded audio meter displays with marks and abnormal audio alert info. Users can also select any two channels of audio to output via the 3.5 mm socket or through the speakers. The audio meter pattern position can be selected from up/down/left/right, and you can choose to display only two channels, eight channels, or the full sixteen channels. It features a UMD and text tally display using the TSL 3.1/4.0 protocol with 1-126 TSL address selection and a maximum of eight letters displayed. The UMD inputs via RS-485 or RS-232C port and outputs via RS-485 port.

The LCD provides a standard USB port for firmware upgrades. Users can download the latest firmware file to a USB stick and directly insert it into the S-1173FS monitor to upgrade, without a PC connection. It has a 4-pin XLR jack rated for 11-17 VDC, and includes a V-mount battery plate for outdoor use. There are red, green and yellow colors for the Tally light.
