LMD-2051W (LMD2051W)Discontinued

20-inch high grade LCD monitor

Overview

Affordable high picture performance
The LMD-2051W is a 20-inch widescreen LCD monitor designed for demanding broadcast and professional applications.

Redefining high performance in the mid-market sector, the new model incorporates a WSXGA+ resolution (1680x1050 pixels) LCD panel, displaying high brightness and contrast images together with a superior viewing angle. The LMD-2051W offers highly accurate and consistent colour reproduction through its unique Sony ChromaTRU technology. This allows assured picture quality decisions as well as facilitating close colour matching for tiling applications.

The LMD-2051W inherits the technology and features of the LMD-2050W. It also includes the latest generation of LCD panel which provides improved colour accuracy and viewing angle.

Full digital 10-bit processing adds to the already impressive array of specifications, delivering smooth greyscale and colour transitions.

The LMD-2051W accepts a 3G SDI input interface to display 1080p format for future proof capability.

A DVI-D input is available enabling a third-party manufacturer's multi-image processor to be connected. The Quad Split board developed by Harris can be inserted in a slot on the LMD-2051W saving space in confined environments.

It also sports a new on-screen video waveform and audio level meter combined together plus a picture-in-picture mode for greater user flexibility.

Entirely at home in broadcast, OB, production, post-production and corporate environments, the LMD-2051W accepts a wide variety of PC and analogue video formats and optional decoder boards are available for standard and high definition digital video display.

Features

New High Definition 1680x1050 WSXGA+ LCD Panel
Delivers outstandingly crisp, high brightness and high contrast images
Extremely wide Viewing Angle
Class-leading horizontal and vertical viewing angle – ideal for group viewing.
High Purity Colour Filters
The LMD-2051W uses precisely manufactured RGB colour filters, allowing the reproduction of colours with stunning depth and saturation to create highly natural images.
Colour Temperature
Colour temperatures of 9300k, 6500k, or a user preset value can be selected.
Accurate and Repeatable Colour Reproduction
ChromaTRU technology ensures close CRT colour accuracy and gamma matching throughout the product's life and delivers consistent colour temperature across the entire greyscale range. Both control characteristics also assure extremely tight colour matching between different model samples.

Three settings are available to simulate EBU, SMPTE and ITU-709 colour reproduction.
10-bit Picture Processing
Delivers smooth colour and greyscale transitions for high quality video production.
Sophisticated I/P Conversion
The LMD-2051W monitor uses a motion-adaptive I/P-conversion process to achieve conversion results that are optimized to the picture content - whether it is static or dynamic. Highly accurate I/P conversion is provided regardless of signal resolution, for example, whether the input is HD or SD.
Multi-Format Signal Support - up to 3G SDI Input
LMD-2051W can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both analogue and digital. Includes NTSC, PAL, component, RGB, Y/C, 480/60i, 575/50i, 480/60p, 576/50p, 1080/50i, 1080/60i, 1080/50p, 1080/60p, 720/50p, 720/60p, 1080/24psf, 1080/25psf, 1080/24p, 1080/25p, 1080/30p and PC signals from VGA to WSXGA+.
3G SDI Input
The LMD-2051W has a 3G SDI input capability. On Sony's monitors, the 3G SDI interface is compliant with the SMPTE 425 standard, transmitting up to 4:2:2/10-bit 1080/60P video data using one SDI cable. This single-link system is known as a SD-SDI or HD-SDI system, but it can also handle both Dual-Link HD-SDI and 3G SDI video data with the use of Sony's 3G SDI interface. This 3G SDI interface enables LMD-2051W monitor to accept 50P and 60P video data. Where an upgrade to a Dual-Link HD-SDI system is necessary, this single-link 3G SDI system is also the ideal alternative.
