Vaddio (, a manufacturer and distributor of
specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems used in the
broadcasting, audio/visual and videoconferencing industries, has
released the PreVIEW HD Dual 7.0 and PreVIEW HD Triple 5.0 LCD Rack
Mount Monitors.

The monitors offer 16:9 aspect ratio LCD screens that are backlit by
LEDs. In addition to component, composite and S-video inputs, they
also sport a VGA input that allows a variety of resolutions up to
SXGA. Both the Dual 7.0 and Triple 5.0 have 1.2 megapixel screens.

The PreVIEW HD Dual 7.0 features two seven-inch high definition LCD
monitors, while the PreVIEW HD Triple 5.0 features three five-inch
high definition monitors. They provide 16:9 video images ideal for
applications that require high resolution monitoring of HD and SD

The native widescreen displays now have an internal menu to adjust
each monitor’s settings, which include brightness, contrast, color,
tint, sharpness and several other advanced options. In addition to
SD, HD and S-video inputs, with active loop-thru outputs, there is
also an analog RGB input on a VGA connector. Tally lights are located
above each monitor to provide visual indication of which feed is live
when connected to a tally of an external device such as Vaddio’s
ProductionVIEW HD.

The high-resolution LCD screens (800 x RGB x 480) are backlit by LEDs
for a brighter, more evenly lit screen when compared with fluorescent
backlit monitors. Both monitors feature over 1 million pixels for
greater detail required to focus HD cameras. The monitors can also be
tilted up and down for optimum viewing angle. Contact Vaddio for
