JVC Professional Products introduced the GD-191U and GD-171U Professional Series LCD monitors for use in security applications. The low-cost monitors offer SXGA (1280x1024) resolution and are designed to be reliable, according to the company.
The new monitors deliver 5 ms response time, a 800:1 contrast ratio, and 250cd/m2 brightness. Each monitor also includes a built-in 3D comb filter to reduce composite video processing artifacts and ensure a sharp picture with less noise. They're built for 24/7 operation with non-glare screens and slim bezels.
"It's not always easy for security professionals to find a balance between affordability and reliability," said Ian Scott, vice president of the Physical Security Group at JVC Professional Products, in a statement. "JVC delivers the best of both worlds with our new Professional Series monitors. They are durable monitors that deliver excellent images at a very attractive price point."
Both 4:3 monitors feature a variety of inputs, including two BNC and one S-Video input, each with a corresponding looping output. There is also an RGB input with its own stereo mini-jack audio input, as well as a pair of RCA audio inputs that are shared between the video sources. A user interface on the front of the unit provides access to the on-screen menu, input selection, volume, power, and auto image adjustment controls. The monitors also feature a tilt adjustable stand for comfortable viewing, plus two built-in speakers for audio monitoring.
