TV Logic HD Monitors - Broadcast Equipment With Options

TV Logic MonitorFor those who need reliable broadcast equipment, TVLogic has been putting out reliable monitors for many years now. Those who have had experiences with TVLogic monitors find that they really like them as they are a reliable workhorse. The weight of these monitors is quite light and this makes them easier to mount onto the camera.

TVLogic Monitors – Set Up Options

There are several TVLogic monitors to choose from, three are commonly used today. The monitor is cost-effective and provides great picture performance. The high resolution on the screen makes detail in images a lot more noticeable. Focus checking is simplified, especially when one is shooting in 4K.

There is a feature called the 058W which is similar to previous models with the 056W. There are 3G HDSDI and HDMI inputs. The HDMI out is useful if you want to set up another monitor feed or if you only have a SDI or a single HDMI output.

The Vectorscope and Waveform displays provide exposure control with a side luma zone which provides for over range error checking and a false colour. The focus assist helps to provide critical focus and a zoom mode where the picture can be checked for focus. The overscan/underscan modes provide the normal aspect ratio markers with safe area overlays. For those DSLR shooters, the monitors allow one to take their output from it and scale the images so that they fill the screen.

Size Choices

Currently available is the 55”, the 46” and the 42”. These are all great choices; it is a matter of need as well as personal taste. These monitors have three assignable function buttons. Instead of going into a menu to assign functions that are used often, one just needs to press and hold the button down.

Once a few seconds have passed, there is a drop down menu that appears containing all available options which allows the user to scroll through to the function they want using a scroll wheel, then pressing it to select that function. This makes it simple to change assigned functions as needed.

The next noticeable difference between monitor sizes is the size of the image. The smaller monitors do not provide as sharp and clear an image because of the size of the screen that displays the image. The colours of all sizes of monitor are accurate.

If you wish you can makes use of the calibration utility that is available on all models and sizes of monitor. The display settings once calibrated can be saved as an LUT within the monitor. The LUT capabilities can prove extremely useful for those shooting with Log.

What is the Weight Range?

Another serious difference between the 55”, 46” and 42” monitors is the weight of the monitor. The 55” is 57.5 kgs, the 46” is 43.0 kgs and the 42” is 30.2 kgs. The weight of these monitors can make a significant difference, depending upon the set up that you use with your broadcast equipment.

One can also playback recent recordings quickly with the built in speaker for audio monitoring and the headphone jack. If it is preferable to monitor audio levels visually, on screen audio meters are also available. The monitors are designed with a magnesium alloy housing making them attractive and reliable. The button layout makes it simple for those who need a good broadcast equipment set up to access what is needed to get the work done easily.
