The Panasonic BT-LH1850 18.5" High-Performance HD/SD LCD Widescreen Monitor is a 1366 x 768 production monitor with highly-useful features, a comprehensive set of connections, and superior quality output. The panel is eco-friendly, with a mercury-free LED backlight drawing only 22W of power, less than half that of the previous LH model.
By SD SDI or video input, the LH1850 can display closed captions with support for both closed caption standards (EIA/CEA-708 HD-SDI and EIA/CEA-608 SD-SDI). It can display up to eight windows simultaneously. A vectorscope function can display all lines of an SDI input signal (Y/R/G/B). A pixel-to-pixel function can display input video without resizing it. A still frame function can freeze a frame and display it as a sub-screen. A time code display shows the value of the VITC, LTC or UB time code. And a simple cross hatch overlay can be displayed to check the tilt of a camera.
A range of markers can be displayed in both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios, including safe area, center, and aspect markers (aspect = 4:3, 13:9, 14:9, CNSCO 2.39, CNSCO 2.35, 2:1, and VISTA in 16:9 mode). For audio monitoring, a color audio level meter shows the input level of embedded audio. The LH1850 also features a waveform monitor for R/G/B signals and a 3D look-up table that produces authentic color hues and smooth gradation along with quick-response motion images.
