Preco to launch two new Cooltouch monitors3 August 2011
“These are two of the most versatile monitors ever introduced,” says Preco’s commercial manager, Sarah Lenson, of the new XP-2401HD and RX-702HD rack-mountable monitors.
The XP-2401HD is designed for content producers and broadcasters who need to monitor digital video images, video waveforms, timecode, audio signal levels and programme sound within a single device. With its 24” 16:9 multi-format LCD screen, integral SD/HD-SDI de-embedder and audio confidence loudspeakers, the XP-2401HD is designed for environments including mobile production vehicles, post-production studios and presentation studios.
Capable of being tilted 60 degrees on its desk-mountable support, the XP-2401HD incorporates a 1920 RGB triads x 1200 pixels resolution screen with 700:1 contrast ratio and 450 candela per square metre brightness. Features include audio de-embedding with on-screen audio level metering, timecode display, video waveform display, and a contact-closure-controlled bi-colour LED tally.
The other new product, the RX-702HD, is a dual 7” widescreen LCD monitor designed to fit 3RU of a standard 19” rack space. It handles SD-SDI and HD-SDI (625/525 autosensing), HDMI, component, dual composite video, plus audio. Each of the two screens is a high-brightness active matrix TFT LCD with 800 RGB triads x 480 pixels resolution. Aspect ratio is switchable between 16:9 and 4:3. Each display is complemented by its own audio monitoring channel sourced from analogue inputs or extracted from the SDI streams.
