Panasonic has announced the expansion of its broadcast-grade flat panel display product line with the immediate availability of the BT-LS1400 14-inch 4:3 aspect ratio LCD Monitor.
The BT-LS1400 offers a high brightness of 450 cd/m², a high contrast of 400:1 and a wide viewing angel of 160 degrees horizontally and vertically.
At about one-third the weight and twice the expected life span, the BT-LS1400 is offered as an upgrade from a standard CRT display, meeting a wide range of professional video monitoring applications with the advantages of an LCD monitor—compact size, light weight and a thin, space-saving profile.
Additional benefits the BT-LS1400 offers over CRT monitoring include: consistent color performance under varying ambient lighting conditions, no performance degradation by magnetic fields generated by speakers or other monitors, virtually no burn-in and less electricity consumption, which means that significantly less air conditioning is required when multiple monitors are in use.
The BT-LS1400 is especially suited for use in desktop video editing and in mobile production vehicles. Professional inputs/outputs offered include: two composite, two S-Video, one Y/Pb/Pr component and one audio (an optional Serial Digital Input is available.). The unit is AC-powered with a power consumption of 40 watts.
It weighs 10.1 pounds and its dimensions are 14" W x 12-1/8" H x 2-13/16" D.
