Image of the following product: LMD-1510W


Affordable high quality picture performance

The LMD-1510W is a 15.6-inch WXGA (1366 x 768) multi-format professional monitor specifically designed to provide a reference video monitoring solution for entry-level video applications.
This monitor can be used for desktop editing and office viewing applications with video or computer format input through DVI to HDMI conversion cable.

A 10-bit processor ensures accurate picture reproduction with less image artefacts. Combined with a high purity filter, the LMD-1510W provides excellent colour depth for precise colour reproduction.

HDMI interface with optional HD-SDI inputs

The LMD-1510W is equipped with a HDMI interface as standard and, with the optional BKM-341HS adaptor, supports both HD-SDI and SD-SDI inputs.


WXGA (1366 x 768) 16:9 LCD panel

Delivers outstandingly crisp, high brightness and high contrast widescreen HD images with a fast transient response.

Cost-effective feature-rich performance

The LMD-1510W offers professional functionality in an economic package. Optimised for moving picture reproduction, it delivers accurate colour rendition and greyscale – thanks to its CRT-like gamma curve. And it sports a wide range of video interfaces and professional features allowing confident video signal evaluation.

High-purity colour filter

The LMD-1510W monitor provides high-brightness, high-contrast images thanks to its wide aperture LCD panel. In addition, the use of a precisely manufactured RGB colour filter allows this monitor to reproduce colours with stunning depth and saturation – creating highly natural images.

109% peak white and 10-bit signal processing

Incorporating a high-purity RGB colour filter and a 10-bit signal processing engine, the LMD-1510W monitor offers stunning 109% peak white reproduction without clipping, and a smooth grey scale along CRT-like gamma.

Safety Area Marker

The LMD-1510W features a Safety Area Marker for a variety of areas: 80%, 85%, 88%, 90% and 93%. An Aspect Marker and Centre Marker are also available.

SD Pixel Mapping

The LMD-1510W is able to select the appropriate picture size setting (pixel number) for the SD analogue input signal from two options:
  • 720x576 (50i) / 720x487 (60i)
  • 702x576 (50i) / 712x483 (60i)
SD pixel mapping is applicable to LINE (Composite and Y/C) and RGB/Component (Analogue RGB/Component) inputs.

Minimized picture delay

Picture delay can be minimised for audio synchronization. Selecting Line Doubler in I/P mode, the signal processing (I/P conversion) period is less than one field (0.5 frames).

Input versatility

The LMD-1510W is equipped with a full range of analogue SD inputs including composite NTSC/PAL, Y/C (S-Video), 525i/625i component, and RGB. This monitor can also handle SD-SDI input using an optional BKM-320D SD-SDI input adaptor. Furthermore, it offers an HD signal input capability via the HDMI and analogue component interface.

Optional HD/SD-SDI input

With the BKM-341HS optional adaptor, the LMD-1510W supports both HD-SDI and SD-SDI input, with a higher picture quality and shorter depth compared to the BKM-320D SD-SDI input adaptor.

In case of SD-SDI input only, the BKM-320D can also be used.

Multi-Format Signal Support

Includes analogue composite(NTSC, PAL), components, RGB, Y/C, 480/60i, 575/50i, 480/60p, 576/50p, 1080/50i, 1080/60i, 720/50p, 720/60p, 1080/24psf, 1080/25psf, 1080/24p, 1080/25p and 1080/30p. The LMD-1510W also accepts high definition and standard definition digital signals with an optional HD/SD-SDI input adaptor.

HDMI input for high definition display

Increasingly an interface of choice for entry-level production.

Colour temperature adjustment

D65, D93 or user presets can be selected.

CRT-like gamma curve

For accurate greyscale performance.

Selectable scan size and aspect ratio

Normal scan (0%), Over-scan (5%) and Full scan are available. Also, the aspect ratio can be switched between 16:9 and 4:3.

Three-colour tally

The tally lamp can be lit via a parallel remote connector and status identified by three colours: red, green or amber.

Video markers

Equipped with a central marker plus 4:3 and 16:9 markers for over-scan and normal-scan display.

Blue-only mode

In the blue-only mode, a monochrome display is shown. This mode is convenient for chroma and phase adjustments and monitoring of signal noise.

Remote control

Via a programmable parallel remote interface.

Mono audio monitoring

The LMD-1510W is equipped with a mono speaker.

VESA mounting (100 x 100 mm)

Desktop or simple wall / ceiling mounting.

External sync

The unit can be operated on the sync signal supplied from an external sync generator.
