Wohler Extends Professional HD Monitoring Line With New 26-Inch Widescreen TFT Display

PANORAMA dtv, the video products
division of Wohler Technologies Inc., has announced the release of
the HDMon-260, a production-grade 26-inch widescreen TFT display that
enables HD monitoring in field and studio applications. This latest addition to Wohler’s HDMon line of HD color video displays
accepts video signals up to 1920×1080/60P.
“The HDMon-260 represents an extension
of our industry-leading line of HD video monitoring solutions,” says Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. “The advanced LCD technology
incorporated into the HDMon series along with flexible control and
configuration options allow our customers to deploy cutting-edge
monitoring technology that meets both their application and budgetary
requirements.”
The new HDMon-260 enables high-quality monitoring of digital
HD-SDI, SD-SDI or DVI signals; analog composite, component and RGBHV
video; and CGI images up to WUXGA resolution without the need for
optional cards. Though the HDMon series is designed primarily for
1080-line HD applications, each monitor provides noise
reduction, motion interpolation and motion-adaptive processing to
ensure crisp, clear display of images, regardless of their native
resolution.
Operating either as a desktop monitor
or in a rackmount configuration, the HDMon-260 display offers HD
resolution, a choice of 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios, user-adjustable
scaling and up to 176 degrees of perfect off-axis viewing without the
image and color distortions normally associated with LCD displays.
Because the HDMon-260 features a greater contrast range than most TFT
displays, on-screen images rarely demonstrate inversion of
low-luminance images.
Control settings are easily accessible
from the front panel, or can be configured remotely via a 10/100 Base-T
interface with an included Windows-based graphical user
interface software application. With this remote feature, users can
adjust and configure units easily, as well as copy and paste setups
from one monitor to another using a laptop or PC. Each unit is
factory-adjusted to meet SMPTE/EBU colorimetric and color gamut
specifications for CRT models.
