PRECO Inc., a leading distributor and systems integrator of advanced broadcast and production solutions, is now distributing the XVM-245W multiformat LCD monitor from TVLogic. The 24-inch XVM-245W monitor is designed specifically for color-critical applications, offering 1920×1080 native HD resolution, ultra-wide color gamut, high contrast of 1000:1, 10-bit 1,073,741,824-color support, a high-purity precision LED backlight, and integrated 3-D lookup tables (LUTs) to ensure accurate reproduction of color spaces.
“We’re very pleased to distribute the XVM-245W to the U.S. market,” said Kent McGuire, president of PRECO. “TVLogic’s LVM series set a high standard for professional multiformat LCD monitors for broadcast, post-production, and multimedia monitoring applications. The new XVM-245W shares all of the same popular features, but now with a 10-bit, ultra-wide color gamut and LED backlit panel capability at a great price point.”
The XVM-245W multiformat monitor accepts two HD/SD-SDI inputs, one DVI-I input, and one HDMI input (with HDCP decryption), as well as analog composite, component, S-video, and RGB inputs – with 1:1 pixel-mapping modes for SD and HD inputs. PRECO also offers the dual-link/3G option, which is 4:4:4/RGB or 1080p60 compatible, a unique feature which allows companies to compare two real-time images side-by-side. Using this mode, you can compare any two signals, whether they are analog, digital video or computer signals. You can also compare the same signal but with different color temperature or brightness/contrast.
The unit features a superior off-axis viewing angle, built-in waveform and vector display, on-screen audio level meters, UMD, VITC/time code display, and 608/708 closed-caption decoding, and various SD and HD scan modes are provided. Integrated handling of embedded audio enables decoded output via analog stereo mini-headphone jack or via built-in stereo speakers. Additionally, support for TVLogic’s color calibration utility enables proper color alignment.
The XVM-245W measures fewer than four inches in depth, allowing users to take advantage of its exceptional performance even in space-constrained applications. The monitor comes with a table-top stand, is VESA -compatible, or can be used with TVLogic’s 19-inch rack-mount kit.
