High Performance and Rugged Durability with a Full-HD IPS Panel and 3D-LUT Picture Quality A 55 cm (21.5 inches) LCD Monitor with Excellent Cost-Performance for Broadcast Use.
he BT-LH2170 LCD Video Monitor incorporates the 3D-LUT (Look Up Table) Color Correction and other high-quality imaging engine features that are unique to Panasonic's LH Series into a 55 cm (21.5 inches) IPS Panel with Full-HD resolution and a wide viewing angle. It also offers excellent operability for outdoor field acquisition due to its rugged aluminum diecast body and DC power capability, together with versatile assist functions such as a Y MAP display, Zebra display, and dual-window display. Newly enhanced 3D assist functions support 3D image production. These and other functions allow the BT-LH2170 to meet a wide range of image production and broadcast needs.
High Resolution, Wide Viewing Angle Full-HD IPS Panel
The 55 cm (21.5 inches) IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD panel has Full-HD (1920 x 1080) resolution. It combines high intensity, high contrast and a wide 178° viewing angle in both horizontal and vertical directions. Easy viewing is ensured by reducing color changes due to the viewing angle.
High-Quality Imaging Engine with 3D-LUT Color Correction
3D-LUT and 6-Axis Color Correction: Eliminates color phase shifts(drift) in the LCD panel caused by changes in luminance. By providing a look-up table for each luminance level and applying 10-bit image processing to each RGB color, it balances the six coordinate poles of the three primary colors (RGB) and their complementary colors (CMY). This helps to reproduce the intermediate shades of extremely fine colors.
Short Latency: A high-performance I/P converter circuit minimizes the delay between the input signal and monitor output to less than a field
Diagonal Line Compensation: Reproduces smooth images by suppressing noise in the diagonal direction.
Gradation: Individual RGB corrections are made on every monitor that is shipped, to reproduce rated gamma properties (γ= 2.2) and ensure
gradation suitable for broadcasting.
Color Temperature: 9300 K/6500 K/5600 K selectable, or 3000 K to 9300 K variable.
Advanced Assist Display Functions (2D)
Y MAP: Allows luminance to be visually checked via color displays for each luminance level with a simple distribution bar.
Zebra: Displays a zebra pattern to show image areas internal and/or external the set brightness range.
Focus-in-Red: Emphasizes sharply focused image areas.
R/G/B Color: Turns the display on/off of each individual R/G/B color.
Waveform Monitor (WFM): Displays the waveform of Y, R, G or B signals in a sub-screen.
Vectorscope Display: Allows the color gamut to be checked in a sub-screen.
Audio Level Meter: Up to 8 channels can be simultaneously displayed. A peak hold function is included. For 3G-SDI input, 1-8 channels or 9-16 channels can be selected.
HV Delay: Displays the video blanking period.
Mono Mode: Switches the display to black-and-white.
Pixel-to-Pixel Display: Displays the actual pixels without resizing.
Dual Window Display with Picture Assist Functions
Still/Motion Image Display: An image from any desired part of moving picture from the same source can be displayed as a still image in a sub-screen. Useful for matching the images.
2 Motion Image Display: Allows use as a video monitor for two SDI inputs. Status and audio level meters can also be displayed for each
of the two inputs.
Picture Assist (Image Adjustment): Image adjustment on the monitor and the results of assist functions from the same source can be displayed side-by-side with the original images for comparison.
Cine-gamma and Black Mode
The BT-LH2170 is equipped with a cine-gamma (F-Rec) compensation function and serves as a monitor for a Varicam camera recorder. The
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 commercials.
Various Markers and Grid
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%, 80% or variable.
Center Marker: Can be displayed together with another marker.
Cross Hatch Overlay: Can be displayed to check the tilt of the camera.
Time Code/Closed Caption Display
A time code can be displayed for SDI input. VITC/UB or LTC/UB values are shown simultaneously on two lines. When an NTSC video signal is input, the closed caption (32 characters x 15 lines) can be displayed. It is compliant with EIA/CEA-608 and 708 standard and can display up to 8 windows of the closed captions.

Diverse 3D Camera Assist Functions
The BT-LH2170 lets you check 3D images using the left-eye and right-eye video signals from a 3D camera on its 2D display. Functions have been improved from previously equipped models.
MIRROR: With the left-eye and right-eye images displayed side-byside, the left and right images can be independently flipped in the horizontal or vertical direction.
SHIFT: The right-eye image can be moved horizontally or vertically in the overlay display.
COMPARISON: Simplifies checking for differences in the frame edges of the left-eye and right-eye images. In addition to side-by-side display, a top & bottom display is now possible.
CONVERGENCE: Switches left-eye or right-eye images displayed on the full screen (manually or automatically).
COLOR:Combines left-eye and right-eye images and displays them in a checkerboard pattern to check brightness and color variance.
ZOOM FOCUS: Enlarges and displays left-eye and right-eye images side-by-side to check variance in focus and zoom. A new dualwindow
FOCUS-IN-RED display is also provided.
VERTICAL: A horizontal line marker allows inspection of vertical misalignment between the left-eye and right-eye images.
OVERLAY: Left-right disparity can be checked by superimposing a marker (in 3%, 2%, or 1% selectable intervals) on the overlay display, difference image between right and left in black-and-white display, or difference image between right and left in color display.
