Ikegami Adds 4K-UHD Master Monitor To HLM-60 Series

At the upcoming IBC Show, Ikegami will spotlight its full range of 4K and HD monitors. Among them is the new 31-inch 4K UHD master-grade monitor with a 4,096 × 2,160 pixel 10-bit resolution and high brightness (1,000 candela per square meter). The HQLM-3125X can be controlled remotely via Ethernet, RS-485 or locally from the front panel.

Designed for critical image evaluation in broadcast production control environments, the panel employs double-LCD-layer technology to achieve a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with true black reproduction. A layer of light-modulating cells allows pixel-by-pixel control of backlight intensity, reducing light leakage and black floating. Fully compliant with BT.2020 wide color gamut, the monitor incorporates single-channel 12G-SDI x 2, 3G-SDI × 5, 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI inputs as standard features. Viewing angle for critical image evaluation is a wide 178 degrees (horizontal/vertical). 1D and 3D LUTs are supported. 

In the same series, the company will show its HQLM-1720WR, a compact UHD HDR monitor for a wide range of broadcast applications. It is equipped with two 12G-SDI input channels as standard for efficient configuration with equipment such as cameras and switchers. 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI inputs are also provided as standard. The HQLM-1720WR employs a 16.5 inch 3840 × 2160 pixel UHD LCD panel using LED backlight and can reproduce high resolution 4K and 2K images.

Ikegami has introduced an HDR option for its HLM-60 family of HD Broadcast monitors that includes electro-optical transfer function tables for HLG, S-Log and S-Log3 in addition to conventional gamma.

At IBC Ikegami will also demonstrate an HDR option for its HLM-60 family of high-definition broadcast quality monitors. This option includes electro-optical transfer function tables for HLG, S-Log and S-Log3 in addition to conventional gamma. It can be added as a retrospective upgrade to all monitors in the HLM-60 series, which currently comprises models HLM-2460W, HLM-1760WR and HLM-960WR. All three can be controlled remotely via Ethernet, RS-485 or from the front panel.

Ikegami's HLM-2460W incorporates a 24-inch 10:9 Full-HD 1920 x 1200 pixel 400 cd, 10-bit resolution LCD panel. Multi-format SDI, 3G-SDI, HDMI, Ethernet and VBS inputs are provided as standard. Operating features include 2x and 4x zoom, dual-picture split, dot-by-dot display, timecode display, user-marker display (preset/user-configurable) and shadow function, under-monitor and in-monitor channel identification display. Test signal generation, waveform monitor and vectorscope facilities with adjustable image and test signal mixing are also provided.

A smaller version of the HLM-2460W with similar features, the HLM-1760WR has a 17-inch Full-HD 1920×1080 pixel 450 candela per square meter 10-bit resolution LCD panel.

Finally, Ikegami's HLM-960WR is a 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. It’s optimized for use in ultra-compact mobile production vehicles. This model offers very narrow front-to-back dimensions, light weight, 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.
