News: JVC Debuts Full-Featured DT-N ProHD Broadcast Monitor Lineup at NAB 2016
(April 18, 2016) JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced its DT-N line of ProHD broadcast studio LCD monitors, which includes three models integrated with extensive professional features. All three new monitors – the 17.3-inch DT-N17F, 21.5-inch DT-N21F, and 23.8-inch DT-N24F – are designed for studio or field use, and will be on display at the 2016 NAB Show (Booth C4314), which runs through April 21 in Las Vegas, Nev.
Each monitor features a 1920x1080 full HD resolution LCD panel with LED backlighting that is compatible with ITU-709 standard color space for HDTV broadcasting. The DT-N17F offers 700:1 contrast ratio and 160-degree viewing angle, while the DT-N21F and DT-N24F have 1000:1 contrast and 178-degree viewing angle.
DT-N monitors support 1080p, 720p, 1080i, 576i, and 480i formats with a variety of frame rates, plus 2K (2048x1080p), which is downsampled to full HD for display. Video inputs support SDI, HDMI, Y/Pb/Pr, CVBS, and VGA, with SDI, HDMI, and CVBS output loops. All three monitors support UMD control through an RS-485 and RS-232 port, and a USB port allows easy firmware upgrades without a PC or other adapters.
All three monitors include built-in waveform monitor, vectorscope, and histogram. Other features include zebra stripes, peaking focus assist, red/green/blue only display, picture freeze, and selectable gamma preset, plus three user profiles for easy image customization.
The new monitors include a stereo analog audio input, but can de-embed audio from SDI and HDMI signals and display up to 16 channels of audio level meters. Audio alert information is displayed on each audio bar, and users can select any two channels of audio for output to the 3.5mm headphone jack or built-in speakers. The DT-N17F has one 2.5-watt speaker, while the larger models feature stereo speakers.
For field use, the DT-N monitors feature an Anton/Bauer battery plate. While each monitor includes a stand, the DT-N17F ships with a 19-inch rack mount, and the DT-N21F and DT-N24F include a VESA wall mount.
“We’ve packed an array of features into these affordable ProHD monitors, which are sized right for edit suites, control rooms, and location shoots,” said Craig Yanagi, product marketing manager, JVC Professional Video. “Our new DT-N product family provides amazing picture quality and all the built-in tools you need for critical image analysis.”
