Ikegami Adds HDR Support For HLM-60 Series HD Monitors

At the 2019 NAB Show, Ikegami will show new high dynamic range (HDR) support for HLM-60 monitor series. The new option includes EOTF tables for Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and S-Log3 in addition to conventional gamma.

The HLM-60 series includes the models HLM-2460W, HLM-1760WR and HLM-960WR. Existing customers of the HLM-60 series can upgrade with to new option.

Ikegami's HLM-2460W is a 24-inch Full-HD monitor with a 1920 x 1200 pixel 10-bit resolution LCD panel. It offers 400 candela per square meter brightness (1 candela equals 1 lux), very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight and low power consumption. Multi-format SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Ethernet and VBS inputs are provided as standard. The HLM-2460W incorporates a full 1920 x 1080 pixel high brightness and high contrast LCD panel. This has a wide viewing angle, fast motion response, and high-quality color reproduction, achieving real pixel allocation without resizing. The monitor's gradation characteristics make it ideal for a wide range of broadcast applications, including use in monitor walls.

Other monitors to be shown include the 17-inch HLM-1760WR monitor, a smaller version of the HLM-2460W with similar features like support for 1920x1080 HD signals via a 450 candela per square meter 10-bit resolution LCD panel. The Ikegami HLM-960WR is a highly compact multi-format LCD monitor with a 9-inch Full-HD 1920 x 1080 pixel 400 candela per square meter 8-bit resolution LCD panel. This model offers very narrow front-to-back dimensions, lightweight, AC or DC operation and low power consumption. An optional battery bracket is available. A USB connector on the front panel allows setup file storage and recall as well as control-menu navigation via a plug-in pointing device.
