Advanced Display Technology and Penta`s State of the Art Processor Engine – The True Color Broadcast Monitor – Facing the Future
The Series of HD2line LCD Broadcast Monitors are specifically designed for all applications in the area of professional broadcasting. Suitable for a wide range of reference and mastering applications such as studio production, OB vans, master control, post production, high end editing, telecine and quality control.
All HD2line displays feature DVI-I, VGA and CVBS inputs as standard. A multi-format HD/SD-SDI input supports datarates up to 3GBit/s and is available as an option. The latest addition is a fiber Optic Input module, available also as an option.
The SDI board automatically recognizes the format of the incoming signal and displays it accordingly or in line with the settings for that specific format. The HD-SDI input supports cable lengths of up to 80 m (with certified cables), and even the DVI input can handle high-resolution input signals with a cable length up to 20 meters.
HD2line – The future of HD
All HD2line displays accept 1920 x 1080 HD as input resolution. The majority of the displays even have native HD resolution and fully support 50 Hz and 60 Hz video input signals. Of course you can also display signals with other resolutions. There is a scaling function, that allows scaling in a specific aspect ratio if required, as well as a 1:1 pixel-to-pixel mapping function.
HD2line – Perfect Color Accuracy
True-color reproduction is essential for any broadcast application. The ultimate color space adjustment guarantees repeatable and precise color reproduction compliant to EBU, SMPTE and ITU .709 standards.
By using the built-in remote control interface, a precise spectroradiometer, e.g. Minolta`s CS 2000 / CS 200 and the HD2match software tool on your PC, an automatic matching process adjusts the display to your preset parameters, but of course you can also adjust the settings manually at any time.

Perfect Color Accuracy
True color reproduction is essential for broadcast applications. HD2match – the Color Calibration and Remote Control Software is the ultimate tool for automatic color space adjustment and guarantees repeatable and precise color reproduction compliant to EBU, SMPTE and ITU. 709 Standards.
Centralized Monitor Wall Control
Built into DCS (Display Control Suite) is also a Centralized Monitor Wall Control. Intuitive and user friendly software is provided for real time or offline monitor wall configuration.
The remote control software gives access to all parameters on individual monitors as well as pre-defined groups of monitors in a larger system or OB van. A complex monitor wall can easily be created by dragging and dropping monitors into your layout. DCS gives a perfect overview of the settings of each monitor.
HD2line Broadcast LCD monitors integrate easily with existing Tally systems and controllers. Dynamic and Static IMD / Tally support is provided via Ethernet network or up to 6 GPI contact closures. GPIs are individually configurable.
High Quality Factory Measurement Procedure
HD2line Broadcast Displays are designed for professionals. To ensure the high quality standard, each display undergoes an intensive quality control process before delivery. For specifying and assessing the performance it
- Luminance Uniformity
- Color Space Gamma Calibration
- Response Time
- Viewing Angle
The specifications and tolerances for the primaries are defined in individual test reports.
Please ask for a detailed Whitepaper of the different Models.
