Oxygen DCT Introduces New Lost Monitor

Oxygen DCT, which is renowned for its expertise in picture monitoring solutions, has launched a new monitor with integrated quad split that dramatically reduces the cost of building galleries, control rooms and monitor walls.
This evolutionary new monitor is more affordable than the traditional approach of using a quad split and a separate monitor and costs 40% less than the alternative of using two dual rack monitors.
The QMVM230 is a high performance 23" broadcast monitor with an integrated multiviewer for displaying up to four separate signals at full High Definition resolution. This versatile monitor allows users to tailor the display to their own operational requirements for programme production, channel branding, galleries, studios and engineering monitoring. It is also ideally suited to DSNGs and OBs where space and weight are at a premium and where its integrated approach reduces installation time and costs.
At the core of the product is a full 1920x1080 resolution IPS LCD panel with ultra wide viewing angles, with LED backlight and 1000:1 contrast ratio for greater detail. This high quality IPS LCD panel gives a true viewing angle of 178 degrees without brightness or colour shift problems associated with standard TN type LCD panels. Whilst the price is remarkably competitive, quality is a hall mark throughout the OMVM230 which uses 10-bit digital processing technology, a 3D comb filter for analogue signals, a PSE precision scaling engine and AGCT technology for automatic Gamma correction and colour temperature management, resulting in sharp, natural, accurate true colour images. Subtleties in design are a reflection of the pedigree of this monitor and exemplified by the smooth, flat fronted design with surface mounted tactile buttons which helps to make it particularly well suited to use in monitor walls and galleries.
The OMVM230 caters for both analogue and digital video signals as well as computer signals, supporting HDMI/DVI-D, 3G/HD-SDI/SD-SDI, composite inputs with looping digital video outputs. Any combination of these signals can be used and the DMP display mode processor has present screen templates that include a single full screen image, a quad split screen, a single full screen picture and three small pictures, all of which can be triggered from a general purpose interface. There's also a HDMI/DVI-D output which allows the screen layout to be monitored on another display such as a large monitor or smaller confidence monitor or PC.
The OMVM230 provides full signal monitoring with a waveform, vectorscope, audio de-embedding, audio monitoring, audio meter display and time code. There are four analogue stereo audio monitoring outputs for monitoring de-embedded audio or line level input audio. The monitor has useful additional facilities such as preset and user adjustable safe area and safe title markets, indent text and a full UMD under monitor display with interfacing to TSL's UMD protocol.
The OMVM230 is an innovative, evolutionary monitor which addresses traditional signal monitoring workflow in a more affordable, compact form factor with market leading functionality, range of facilities, high quality pictures and wide viewing angles.
