228.6 mm (9 inches)
Wide LCD Video Monitor
The BT-LH910G is a portable, high-resolution LCD video monitor with advanced broadcasting functions. Its newly developed 228.6mm (9 inches) New IPS LCD panel boasts the best-in-class*3 WXGA (1280 x 768) resolution, high brightness and superb contrast, for use in applications that far exceed those of conventional compact monitors. The BT-LH910G also offers extensive display functions, like a RGB WFM, a color audio level meter and Focus Assist, to respond to diverse production and broadcasting needs. Using two SDI input terminals, the BT-LH910G can overlay the left-eye and right-eye images of a 3D source. Plus, it's equipped with a variety of 3D Shooting Assist*1 functions. From outdoor and studio recording to OB van installation and sub-monitor use for live broadcasting, the BT-LH910G meets high-end production and broadcasting needs.
*1: These functions assist 3D shooting with a 2D image display. The BT-LH910G does not display 3D images.
*2: 3G-SDI supports 1080/50p, 1080/59.94p, and 1080/60p of the SMPTE ST 425-A standard.
*3: In the 228.6 mm (9 inches) and smaller professional monitor category (according to a Panasonic survey, as of March 2011).
The 228.6 mm (9 inches) New IPS LCD Panel Produces High-Resolution, High-Quality Images.
WXGA (1280 × 768), the Highest Resolution in the Portable Monitor Class
Monitor ResolutionThe New IPS LCD panel features a new pixel structure that heightens resolution more than 20% in terms of area ratio as compared with our previous model BT-LH900A. This 228.6 mm (9 inches) LCD panel has 1280 × 768 pixels, which rivals the number of pixels in our 431.8 mm (17 inches) BT-LH1710 LCD monitor. The BT-LH910G offers the highest level of resolution in the portable monitor class, and opens the door to new applications in HD recording, production and broadcasting by surpassing the limits of conventional small monitors.
High Brightness, Superb Contrast, Wide Viewing Angle
Viewing Angle The new pixel structure incorporated in the New IPS LCD panel has dramatically improved the light transmittance of the LCD panel, for greater brightness. New liquid crystal materials and newly designed color filters have also achieved high contrast to render crisp, clear images. Together, they provide easy-to-see images even for outdoor viewing. Its viewing angle is 176° in both vertical and horizontal directions. The New IPS LCD panel boasts superb color display characteristics with minimal changes in brightness or color even when viewed at an angle.
The New IPS LCD panel features an LED backlight. Developed with advanced technology, this mercury-free panel also helps to preserve the global environment.
High-performance Image Processing Engine for Superb Moving Image Quality
Chromatic Gamut • Precise 10 bit image processing uses a three-dimensional LUT (Look Up Table) for each RGB color to achieve faithful color reproduction from low to high brightness levels.
• The diagonal line compensation circuit minimizes jagged noise on diagonal lines.
• The high-speed, high-performance I/P conversion circuit achieves superb motion response with a delay of less than one field between input and panel display.
• Improved response time in intermediate gradations provides vivid and clear image displays without blurring.
Gradation and RGB Manual Adjustment
In order to match the LCD monitor to professional broadcasting applications, compensation is conducted for each monitor in 256 discrete RGB steps, and rated gamma properties (g = 2.2) are reproduced. The color temperature can also be set to 9300K, 6500K or 5600K, and manual white balance lets you directly adjust gain and bias for R, G and B.
Calibration FunctionThe BT-LH910G comes installed with software that allows it to be calibrated without using a PC, by simply connecting a manufacturer-designated display color analyzer and measurement probe to the monitor.

Outstanding Display Performance, Extensive Recording Assist Functions
and a Wealth of Interfaces for Broadcasting Use.
Cine-gamma and New Black Mode
Cine-gamma and New Black ModeThe BT-LH910G is equipped with a cine-gamma (F-REC) compensation function and serves as a monitor for the Varicam camera recorder. The new black mode also makes dark image areas in low-gradation scenes easier to see. It helps to produce movies as well as film-like HD programs and commercial.
New Audio Level Meter and Headphone Terminal
New Audio Level Meter and Headphone TerminalThe new color audio level meter displays the embedded audio (3G-SDI, SDI, HDMI*) input level. And it's equipped with reference point setting, peak hold and over-range display functions. The BT-LH910G is also provided with a headphone terminal. The channel to be monitored is easily selected from the menu.
*For HDMI input, the level meter displays only two channels.
WFM (Y/R/G/B) and Vector Scope Display
WFM (Y/R/G/B) and Vector Scope Display The BT-LH910G has built-in waveform monitor and vector scope functions to display the input signal waveform and color gamut. For waveform display, the signal can be selected from Y, R, G and B.
*The WFM function can be used for all input signals. The vector scope function can be used for 3G-SDI and SDI input.
Focus Assist Functions for HD Shooting
Focus-in-Red ON • Focus-in-Red: Emphasizes the sharply focused area of the image by showing it in an easily visible red.
• Pixel-to-Pixel: Displays video pixels without any resizing. With 1080i/p input signals, you can check the focus with a screen width equivalent to 342.9 mm (13.5 inches).
Closed Caption and Time Code Display
Closed Caption and Time Code DisplayThe BT-LH910G can display closed captions with an SDI or VIDEO input. It supports the EIA-708 HD SDI closed captioning standard (EIA-608 SD-SDI closed captioning standard), and can display up to eight windows simultaneously. The BT-LH910G can also display the time code (selectable from VITC, LTC and UB) with an SDI input.
Various Markers Various markers can be displayed in both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios.
• Aspect Marker (16:9): 4:3, 13:9, 14:9, CNSCO2.39, CNSCO2.35, 2:1 or VISTA, with background brightness control of Black (0%), Half (50%) or Normal (100%).
• Safe Area Marker (16:9/4:3): 95%, 93%, 90%, 88% or 80%.
• Center Marker (16:9/4:3): ON/OFF. The center marker can be displayed together with another marker, as shown in the example right. In 16:9 mode, the BT-LH910G can display a superimposed safe area marker corresponding to the aspect marker which is selected.
A Diversity of Display Functions
A Diversity of Display Functions • Cross Hatch Overlay: Displays grids with 40 or 80 pixel intervals. This is useful for horizontal/vertical adjustment.
• HV Delay Display: Displays the video blanking period.
• Mono Mode: Displays images in black-and-white.
• Split Screens: A frame of video can easily be frozen and displayed as a still image on the left side of the screen. This function can be used to match a live camera with a frame of video shot at an earlier time or with a different camera.
