Plura’s 7″ Monitor Exceeds 1,000 cd/m²

A 7″ model is being added to Plura Broadcast’s range of bright, portable monitors. These displays are designed for use both indoors and outside, in sunlight. Plura says that even under bright light, they reproduce accurate colours following Rec.709, SMPTE-C and EBU-3320 standards.

Brightness varies between 100 cd/m² and 1,300 cd/m²; users can quickly set the monitor to its maximum level with a button press. EMI from radar and GPS is eliminated with the PHB-207-3G’s shielding, circuitry and filtration properties.

Gamma correction, colour temperature and white point correction are enabled automatically when using Plura’s ICAC calibration and alignment tool. Like its 9″ sister model, the monitor features RGB 12-bit digital signal processing; waveform and vector scopes; closed caption decoding; audio metering and time code display; picture-in-picture modes; and a stereo speaker.

Resolution is 1280 x 800, with an 800:1 contrast ratio, 12ms response time and 178° viewing angles. The unit has SD-SDI, HDMI, DVI, S-Video, composite/component (shared port) and RJ45 inputs. It will be shown off at NAB in Las Vegas this April (13th – 16th).
