Vaddio Intros LCD Rack-Mount Monitors

Vaddio has released the new PreVIEW HD Dual 7.0 and PreVIEW HD Triple 5.0 LCD rack-mount monitors, offering 16:9-aspect-ratio LCD screens backlit by LEDs, which provide a bright, evenly lit screen.

Explains Vaddio President Rob Sheeley, “In addition to component, composite, and S-video inputs, we’ve also added a VGA input that allows a variety of resolutions up to SXGA. Both the Dual 7.0 and Triple 5.0 have 1.2-megapixel screens, making them ideal for viewing HD signals.”

The PreVIEW HD Dual 7.0 features two 7-inch (17.78-cm) high-definition LCD monitors, while the PreVIEW HD Triple 5.0 features three 5-inch (12.7-cm) high-definition monitors — both with exceptional video clarity and color handling.

The native widescreen displays now have an internal menu to adjust each monitor’s settings, which include brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and several other advanced options. In addition to SD, HD, and S-video inputs, with active loop-through outputs, there is also an analog RGB input on a VGA connector. Tally lights are located above each monitor to provide visual indication of which feed is live when connected to a tally of an external device, such as Vaddio’s ProductionVIEW HD. The high-resolution LCD screens (800 x RGB x 480) are backlit by LEDs for a brighter, more evenly lit screen when compared with fluorescent backlit monitors. Both monitors feature more than 1 million pixels for the greater detail required to focus HD cameras. The monitors can also be tilted up and down for optimum viewing angle.
