Welcome to the
They say a picture is worth
Whilst the camera + lens combination is pivotal to providing a decent quality image, its down to the humble Video Monitor to actually display a high quality picture. In terms of monochrome monitors (Black and White), the technology which is based on the good old fashioned Cathode Ray Tube (CRT), has barely changed over the last thirty years. The components may have improved, and production methods become more streamlined, but the resulting picture quality is on average, pretty much the same.
Its only when we look at Colour Monitors, that there's now a noticeable shift starting to take place, towards the latest generation LCD flat panel displays. For much larger displays, particularly in custom built control rooms, Plasma Screens are creating a bit of a stir, although very recent advances in flat panel design mean that larger TFT displays are catching up fast. On the subject of control rooms, large video walls are increasingly becoming de rigeur, and a number of manufacturers now offer specialised display devices which are capable of driving a large array of monitor displays or projection systems, using a variety of video surveillance, graphics and data feeds.
So if image is everything, how best can you exploit current technologies, without breaking the bank?
Test Monitors - A range of small engineering units suitable for setting up or testing larger systems.
