Monitoring Moves In Video Visuals
In the wake of the demise of the use of the once ubiquitous CRT in post-production facilities,
the push towards 4K display technology continues unabated…

f the 2013 Consumer Electronic
Show is any guide, the trend
towards ever larger flat-screen
television displays will eventually
face competition from wearable
ultra-high resolution devices
viewed close to one or both eyes.
The advantages are obvious: lower
manufacturing and delivery cost,
lower power consumption, lower
bulk and potentially much higher
visual immersion.
The likely catalyst for this
transition will be the impending
transition from pocket-sized to
wristwatch-sized mobile phones.
The latter will force their owners to
plug in a separate display device
if they want to view anything more
interesting than a digital number pad.
Kempler & Strauss defined the style
back in 2009 with their Double U
wrist-phone, followed in April 2012
by Sony’s SmartWatch Internetlinked wristwatch.
In the shorter term, any kind of
professional video monitoring entails
sitting down in front of a desktop or
wall-mounted display. So what was
new in video displays during 2012
and at the January 2013 Consumer
Electronics Show?
Christie claimed to be taking
solid-state projection technology
to “the next level” with the launch
of its Matrix StIM WQ and Christie
Matrix SIM WQ WQXGA resolution
projectors. These are developments
from the

Matrix StIM LED illuminated
simulation projector. The Christie
Matrix StIM WQ and Christie Matrix
SIM WQ have 800 ANSI lumens
output brightness, 4.1 megapixel
resolution and operator-adjustable
smear-reduction. The latter is
adjustable in 1% increments over
a 0-100 range.
Cooltouch introduced an addition
to its range of video monitors.
Designed for use in confined spaces
such as mobile production vehicles,
the RX-702HD incorporates dual
7-inch 16:9 LCD screens and
delivers high image quality even
when viewed in bright ambient
light. Each of the RX-702HD’s two
screens is a high-brightness active
matrix TFT LCD with 800 RGB triads
x 480 pixels resolution. Aspect ratio
is switchable between 16:9 and 4:3.
Both displays are complemented
by their own audio monitoring
channels which can be sourced
from analogue inputs or extracted
from SDI streams. The RX-702HD
occupies three units of standard
19-inch rack space. It handles
SD-SDI and HD-SDI (625/525
autosensing), HDMI, component,
dual composite video, plus audio.
Additional connectivity features
include dual DVI-I/HDMI (shared via
a gender converter), four composite
video inputs and two reclocked SDI
outputs. The RX-702HD is housed in
a rugged metal enclosure measuring
483 x 130 x 53 millimetres and
weighing 1.8

Christie’s Matrix StIM WQ offers high brightness, WQXGA resolution with realtime balancing of colour and brightness levels

Panasonic unveiled a 20-inch 4K tablet at CES

kilogrammes. Power can be sourced
from a 12 volt DC supply or via the
included universal mains adaptor.
LG exhibited at CES 2013 a
55-inch 1920 x 1080 organic-LED
expected to go on sale in the US
at the start of Q2. Last year, the
company introduced an 84-inch 4K
LED-backlit LCD screen.
Philips displayed a 56-inch 21:9
widescreen LED-backlit television
display at the September 2010
Berlin Funkaustellung, 3D-capable
to boot, but this aspect ratio
subsequently fell back into the
shadows. In December 2012 LG
launched the model 29EA93 2D 29inch 21:9 aspect ratio LED-backlit inplane switching computer monitor.
Characteristics include 2560 x1080
pixel resolution, 300 candela per
square metre brightness, 1,000:1
contrast ratio, five millisecond
response time, DVI input, HDMI
input and DisplayPort connector.
An increasing number of video
monitors now include test and
measurement capabilities such
as vector and waveform display
almost creating a new category of
hybrid products. Test equipment
manufacturers have also come into
this centre ground.
Leader Instruments’ LV5307
is a 7-inch multi-format monitor/
rasteriser which can cross-convert
3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI to
HDMI and vice versa. The HDMI
output may be used as a rasteriser
delivering screen content to an
external monitor. The LV5307
provides picture monitoring of
analogue, SDI and HDMI inputs.
Connectivity capabilities include
SDI in/out, Y/Pb/Pr analogue
component in, left/right analogue

audio in, PC audio in/out, HDMI in/
out, RS-485 in/out, de-embedded
audio out (left and right, selected
from 16 digital channels in the SDI
stream), plus a four-pin XLR power
input. All inputs and outputs are
located at the rear of the instrument.
Selectable waveform, vector and
false-colour test screens can be
inset over SDI and HDMI sources.
Picture functions include markers,
monochrome, blue-only, red-only
and green-only modes plus a
cross-pulse function. A peaking
function is included to allow precise
adjustment of camera focus. Easy
to use controls with presettable
quick-function buttons complement
the comprehensive display and
menus. Integral to the LV5307 is a
high-quality in-plane switching LEDbacklit LCD screen delivering bright
images (400 candela per square
metre typical luminous intensity)
over a broad 170 degree horizontal
and vertical viewing angle. With its
1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 16.7
million colour depth and 800:1
contrast ratio, the LV5307 allows
detailed viewing of video images
and waveforms.
Panasonic has been collaborating
with NHK in the development of a
145-inch direct-view 8K (7680 x
4320 pixel) display screen. Exhibited
at IFA 2012 in Berlin, the screen
is of the plasma type. Panasonic
introduced during 2012 the BTLH2170, a 21.5-inch 2D/3D LCD
production monitor with native 1920
x 1080 HD resolution, and significant
advances in functionality. It will
begin deliveries this month. Features
include a high-quality in-plane
