The latest in Autoscript’s illumination technology, the TFT (thin-film transistor) LED system offers instant warm-up to full brightness, unlike CCFLs (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tubes), which take many minutes to reach full efficiency and light output. In addition, the LED17TFT-BLW comes with a wide angle hood, making it optimal for news or studio-based productions.
The LED17TFT-BLW comes equipped with an Eco +Plus+ feature that saves power when no active video is present and includes a preset LCM (Low Consumption Modes) feature for use with camera utility power-outlets, built-in dimmable Tally Light with Opto Sensor input and repeat output, illuminated control panel for easy visibility in dark studio conditions and optional HD-SDI input.
“We are very excited to feature the wide angle LED17TFT-BLW, the latest in LED technology at this year's NAB Show,” says Brian Larter, president & managing director, Autoscript. “The superior light distribution of the LED17TFT-BLW wide angle delivers higher contrast levels and an overall picture quality that improves on current technology that has received rave reviews since its introduction.”
The LED17TFT-BLW uses significantly less power than existing TFTs, thereby increasing the monitor’s efficiency, which is particularly important for teleprompter monitors powered from the camera head.
“The benefits of the LED technology that Autoscript is utilizing far outweigh those of fluorescent back-lit monitors,” adds Larter. “LED technology has major advantages for display longevity, performance, reliability and ‘green’ energy savings all which significantly help with a broadcaster’s bottom line."
