On-camera waveform monitors11 September 2016
Two new HD (1920×1080) waveform LCD monitors have been introduced by Swit. The 5.5-inch S-1053F and 7-inch S-1073F models both come in a robust all-metal housing with a foldable sun hood.
The monitors feature 2K/3G/HD/SD-SDI input and loop out and a lockable HDMI input port that can be cross-converted to SDI for output.
There are 16-channel embedded audio meters with alert from which users can select any two audio channels to output, a USB port for upgrades, and the ability to take various DV battery plates.
They also have a range of visual aids, such as waveform (Y/Cb/Cr/R/G/B and single line), vector scope (histogram R/G/B/Y), peaking focus assist (dual colour), AFD, timecode, H/V delay, Zebra stripes, markers (4:3, 13:9, 14:9, 15:9, 1.85:1, 2.35:1), false colour, R/G/B/Mono and 100 per cent colour bar.
Swit is also launching a new line of EBU Grade2 HD waveform studio LCD monitors, the 17.3-inch, 21.5-inch and 23.8-inch.
