Preco to launch two new Cooltouch monitors at IBC 2011
“These are two of the most versatile monitors ever introduced,” comments Preco’s Commercial Manager, Sarah Lenson. “The XP-2401HD is designed for content producers and broadcasters who need to monitor digital video images, video waveforms, timecode, audio signal levels and programme sound within a single device. The RX-702HD is ideal for use wherever space is at a premium. Both models deliver excellent image quality even under high ambient light conditions.”
NEW: Cooltouch XP-2401HD 24 inch video/waveform/audio monitor
The XP-2401HD is designed for content producers and broadcasters who need to monitor digital video images, video waveforms, timecode, audio signal levels and programme sound within a single device. With its 24 inch 16:9 multi-format LCD screen, integral SD/HD-SDI de-embedder and audio confidence loudspeakers, the XP-2401HD is designed for environments such as mobile production vehicles, post-production studios and presentation studios.
Capable of being tilted 60 degrees on its desk-mountable support, the XP-2401HD incorporates a 1920 RGB triads x 1200 pixels resolution screen with 700:1 contrast ratio and 450 candela per square metre brightness. Features include audio de-embedding with on-screen audio level metering, timecode display, video waveform display and a contact-closure-controlled bi-colour LED tally.
Connectivity capabilities of the XP-2401HD include HD/SD-SDI, RGB, DVI and audio. Two SD/HD-SDI inputs are provided (one with reclocked output), one DVI/VGA input, three loop-through composite video inputs with PAL/NTSC autosensing, and one stereo-pair analog audio input. The de-embedded audio input feeds the internal speakers. An analog output of the digital audio input is also accessible.
The Cooltouch XP-2401HD is operated and adjusted via front panel pushbuttons conveniently positioned below the display. These including an onscreen menu-based control structure for detailed adjustments. A front-panel headphone output is also provided.
NEW: Cooltouch RX-702HD rack-mountable dual 7 inch video/audio monitor
The RX-702HD is a dual 7 inch widescreen LCD monitor designed to fit 3 RU of a standard 19 inch rack space. It handles SD-SDI and HD-SDI (625/525 autosensing), HDMI, component, dual composite video, plus audio.
Each of the two screens is a high-brightness active matrix TFT LCD with 800 RGB triads x 480 pixels resolution. Aspect ratio is switchable between 16:9 and 4:3. Each display is complemented by its own audio monitoring channel sourced from analogue inputs or extracted from the SDI streams.
Additional connectivity features include dual DVI-I/HDMI (shared via gender converter), four composite video inputs and two reclocked SDI outputs.
The RX-702HD is housed in a rugged metal enclosure (483 x 130 x 53 millimetres, 1.8 kilogrammes) and is powered by 12 volts DC or via the included universal mains adaptor.
