8.4" Multi-Format LCD Monitor

The Panasonic BT-LH900A 8.4" LCD Monitor is able to handle the complete range of SD and HD formats. Packing an ultra high resolution panel into a modest lightweight frame makes this unit the prefect complement to any serious production.

It included top-end features, such as high quality image reproduction, waveform monitoring in 16:9 mode as well as a built in CineGamma function when coupled with Panasonic's acclaimed Varicam camera. The LCD is light enough to mount on top of any ENG camera, as well as smaller units without sacrificing functionality.

Format Compatibility
The BT-LH900A handles almost any format in standard or high definition and can be customized to switch between them automatically. There is no flipping a switch, accessing a menu, or turning a knob. Simply set the monitor to AUTO and the LCD will do the work.

Detachable Control Panel
The LCD has a detachable control panel, enabling it to fit in virtually any area. Attach the controls to the bottom or right side; wherever fits you best.

Waveform Picture-In-Picture
In 16:9 mode, the LCD will display the input signal as a waveform image. This can be vital for proper color correction and white balancing, especially when conditions make it hard to calibrate by eye.

CineGamma Function
The included CineGamma function, specifically designed to be used with Panasonic Varicam High Definition Camera, provides the camera operator with precision color reproduction.

High Viewable Angle
A 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle ensures that you can continue to view the LCD no matter where you are. This can be useful during productions where space is limited.
