TV One has added the new LM-702HD dual 7-inch HD color monitor to its line of broadcast LCD displays, as well as a new series of HDMI over Multiple Coax Extender Systems.

The LM-702HD features high brightness, a wide viewing angle, HD color, and inputs for SDI (SD-SDI or HD-SDI) with an active looping output, analog RGBHV, YPbPr Component Video, Composite Video, YC. Front-panel Tally LEDs can be activated externally via the DB9 connector. The menu contains all the necessary controls to adjust the contrast, brightness, sharpness, color level, and other parameters necessary for optimum monitor performance.

Results of these adjustments can be viewed via the on-screen display. A sync delay (pulse cross) mode allows viewing of the vertical and horizontal sync and vertical blanking intervals. A blue-only mode provides accurate monitor setup when viewing color bars. An included rack-mount kit can tilt up or down. The monitor's tilt feature comes in handy if it needs to be mounted considerably above or below eye level, according to the company.

The new 1T-CT-680 Series HDMI over Multiple Coax Extender System consists of the 1T-CT-681 transmitter and the 1T-CT-682 receiver. A lossless transmission system handles deep color (12 bits), HDMI v1.3, or DVI-D signals (with appropriate DVI-to-HDMI adapters) at resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz and 1080p, plus embedded audio over coaxial cables.

Using low-loss, RG-6 coaxial cables allows the 1T-CT-680 extender system to reach signal distribution distances of up to 325 feet for 1080p/8-bit signals and 245 feet for 1080p/12-bit signals. Other types of coaxial cables may be used, but could result in a reduction of the maximum distances, says the company.

A minimum of four coax cables is required: one cable for each of the video components (R-G-B) and one for a clock signal. A fifth coax cable is necessary if power is to be sent via cable; power can be transmitted up to 180 feet using RG-6 cable.

The LM-702HD color monitor has an MSRP of $3,950. The 1T-CT-680 system has an MSRP of $595.
