RTL Chooses Kroma TFT MonitorsOB van to use new LM5009 9-inch TFT monitor (July 01, 2004)
Recently back from Broadcast Asia 2004, Kroma Telecom, the Spanish broadcast equipment manufacturer, is equipping again an OB Van with its brand new 9-inch TFT monitor. This time itīs RTL, the German broadcaster.
Just after being chosen by TVE, the Spanish pubcaster, for the broadcasting of the Royal Wedding, Kroma TFT monitors are being installed in an OB Van of RTLīs sister network in Croatia.
RTL has chosen Kromaīs TFT monitors, impressed by the picture quality of their new 9-inch offering. It has been a meaningful choice as this is a moment of transition between the tube and the flat screen. ?Many TV stations are shifting from CRT to TFT given the high quality of these flat screen displays. Our new monitor is attracting those that cannot sacrifice picture quality. They may like the CRT-matching colours or the fantastic viewing angle (no need to get into the vehicle to see the image on the monitor!). But what financiers appreciate most is the 50K-hour lifetime of the equipment, says Maria Lopez, international sales manager, Kroma Telecom. ?Itīs just ideal for OB Vans.
Apart from the well-known advantages of these monitors (less space, weight & consumption), Kromaīs monitors offer a resolution and CRT-colour matching capabilities that reach highest broadcast standards. This model, the LM5009, has no equivalent in the market: 170š viewing angle, 1024x768 resolution, 400:1 contrast, 50,000 hours of lamplife and just 10ms of delay -plus multiple I/Os for analogue, digital, computer, remote or embedded audio signals.
