by -- Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems Company

Panasonic has introduced the BT-LH1700W, a broadcast-quality high definition/standard definition LCD monitor for studio and field applications. Displaying brilliant, highly colour saturated images, the 17 space-saving, widescreen monitor produces exceptional colour reproduction and gradation, while allowing the user to display widescreen high definition images in their natural resolution.

The multi-format BT-LH1700 offers a 1280 x 768 pixel WXGA-resolution, an amazingly fast response time of 10ms, and faithfully reproduces up to 16.7 million colours. The 17 flat panel monitor offers a wide viewing angle of 176 degrees vertical and horizontal.

Thin and lightweight, the rack-mountable BT-LH1700W is designed to simplify demanding high definition and standard definition production tasks. The monitor is equipped with intuitive, easy-to-use manual controls needed for video production and broadcast applications, as well as independent control knobs for brightness, contrast, chroma and phase. It also incorporates a RG tally display.

The monitor displays 1080/24PsF, 1080i, 720P and 480i video format inputs. It offers an array of input/outputs including SDI, Y/Pb/Pr, RGB, composite and S-video, as well as an audio input. The unit also includes a built-in stereo speaker and a VESA mount.

The BT-LH1700W will be available in the Fall at the suggested list price of $4,200.
