Wohler Extends Professional HD Monitoring Line With New 26-Inch Widescreen TFT Display
Posted Aug 19, 2008

PANORAMAdtv, the video products division of Wohler Technologies Inc., today announced the release of the HDMon-260, a production-grade 26-inch widescreen TFT display that enables convenient HD monitoring in field and studio applications. Equipped with a feature set essential to professional broadcasting, this latest addition to Wohler's HDMon line of HD color video displays accepts video signals up to 1920x1080/60P.

"The HDMon-260 represents an extension of our industry-leading line of HD video monitoring solutions," said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. "The advanced LCD technology incorporated into the HDMon series along with flexible control and configuration options allow our customers to deploy cutting-edge monitoring technology that meets both their application and budgetary requirements."

Like other video monitors in the HDMon family, the new HDMon-260 enables high-quality monitoring of digital HD-SDI, SD-SDI, or DVI signals; analog composite, component, and RGBHV video; and CGI images up to WUXGA resolution without the need for optional cards. Though the HDMon series is designed primarily for 1080-line HD applications, each monitor provides exceptional noise reduction, motion interpolation, and motion-adaptive processing to ensure crisp, clear display of images, regardless of their native resolution.

Operating either as a desktop monitor or in a rackmount configuration, the HDMon-260 display offers HD resolution, a choice of 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratios, user-adjustable scaling, and up to 176 degrees of perfect off-axis viewing without the image and color distortions normally associated with LCD displays. Because the HDMon-260 features a greater contrast range than most TFT displays, on-screen images rarely demonstrate inversion of low-luminance images.

Control settings are easily accessible from the front panel, or can be configured remotely via a 10/100 Base-T interface with an included Windows®-based graphical user interface software application. With this remote feature, users can adjust and configure units easily, as well as copy and paste setups from one monitor to another using a laptop or PC. Each unit is factory-adjusted to meet SMPTE/EBU colorimetric and color gamut specifications for CRT models.
