(1920x1200) High Grade LUMA 3D Monitor
solution for 3D Monitoring applications
The new LMD-2451TD is a 24-inch widescreen LCD monitor
designed to satisfy the rapidly growing demand from 3D
productions in the broadcast and professional field.
This professional monitor incorporates a micro-polarizer
filter attached to the LCD panel, and is supplied with
circular polarizer 3D glasses. Wearing these lightweight 3D
glasses, users can enjoy smooth, uninterrupted viewing of
The LMD-2451TD inherits the proven technology and features
of the widely respected 2D LCD monitor, the high grade
LMD-2451W. The LMD-2451TD can also display 2D pictures.
Key features of this monitor are Sony’s highly acclaimed,
unique ChromaTRU colour matching technology and a WUXGA
(1920 x 12000) resolution professional LCD panel with an
excellent wide viewing angle. Full digital 10-bit processing
adds to the already impressive array of specifications,
delivering smooth greyscale and colour transitions.
The LMD-2451TD can accept various source of 3D signal format
such as 3D on 3G, Dual stream left and right, Field
sequential and side-by-side HD-SDI as well as DVI-D line
interleave (line by line)mode. A new set of 3D features have
also been added to the monitor to help the user to manage
the 3D effects with efficiency. The BKM-250TG board is
required to display these features.
Entirely at home in broadcast, OB, production,
post-production and corporate environments, the LMD-2451TD
accepts a wide variety of PC and analogue video formats and
optional decoder boards are available for Standard and High
Definition digital video display.
The LMD-2451TD uses precisely manufactured RGB colour
filters, allowing the reproduction of colours with stunning
depth and saturation to create highly natural images.
The LMD-2451TD adopts a 3D micro polarizer filter attached
to the LCD panel, and is supplied with circular-polarizer
glasses. In this system, the right and left signals are
sorted into odd lines and even lines respectively. The right
and left images delivered from the LCD panel are circular
polarized in different directions through the
micro-polarizer filter and the patterned retarder. Each
right and left image can then be viewed by the corresponding
right and left circular-polarizer filter glass.
Lightweight Circular-polarizer 3D Glasses
Sony BKM-30G circular-polarizer glasses are designed for the
3D production operator’s convenience, and optimized for both
LMD 3D monitors.
feature – Horizontal Flip
When a half-mirror type of rig is used, either the left or
right signal may be reversed horizontally. The Flip H
function turns the reversed image to the normal view. This
is helpful because the user can refer directly to the rig
camera, achieving a simple and cost-saving system.
feature – Disparity Simulation
Either the left or right signal phase (or both phases) of a
3D image can be shifted horizontally. In this way, users can
simulate the amount of 3D image parallax, and can judge
whether the camera rig should be adjusted on location or
whether it would be better to adjust the parallax later
during the post-production process.
feature – Horopter Check
This function helps users to perceive the subtle difference
of depth between different objects placed on the 3D screen
feature – Checker Board
Left and right input signals are displayed in a grid pattern
on screen – divided into 9 blocks vertically and 16 blocks
horizontally. By comparing adjacent images, users can
recognize a difference in brightness and colour setting of
the left and right images, and thus easily adjust the
camera’s white balance and iris settings.
feature – L/R Switch
Left and right signals can be swapped in a moment without
inserting black frames, simply by manually pushing a
function key. This instant-swap capability enables users to
compare whole images and check for any sense of incongruity
or for unnatural images.
feature – Payload ID Display
Channel-assign information about the payload ID data of
input signals is displayed on the menu screen. This tells
users how the left and right channels are assigned in the
and Repeatable Colour Reproduction
ChromaTRU technology ensures close CRT colour accuracy and
gamma matching throughout the product’s life and delivers
consistent colour temperature across the entire greyscale
range. Both control characteristics also assure extremely
tight colour matching between different model samples. Three
settings are available to simulate EBU, SMPTE and ITU-709
Balance Calibration Function
The LMD-2451TD employs software based white balance
calibration function, which is called LMD_AutoWhiteBalance.
Combined with a PC and commercially available calibration
tool - X-Rite i1Pro - this function enables precise and
quick adjustment of the monitor’s white balance.
Multi-Format Signal Support - up to 3G SDI Input
LMD-2451TD can accept almost any SD or HD video format, both
analogue and digital. Includes NTSC, PAL, component, RGB,
Y/C, 480/60i, 575/50i, 480/60p, 576/50p, 1080/50i, 1080/60i,
1080/50p, 1080/60p, 720/50p, 720/60p, 1080/24psf,
1080/25psf, 1080/24p, 1080/25p, 1080/30p and PC signals from
VGA to WUXGA.
The monitor can accept up to two optional video boards for
additional video analogue or digital inputs (HD/SD SDI).
Note that the new LMD-2451TD is compatible with current
decoder boards. For the variety of 3D display functions, the
BKM-250TG is mandatory.
The LMD-2451TD monitor is factory preset to accept 32
typical computer input signal frequencies.
Harris QS-100HD board has been designed to fit inside the
LMD-2451TD for space saving. It provides ultimate quad
images with many functions associated.
Waveform and Audio Level Meter
A combined video waveform and Audio Level Meter is available
on the On-screen display of the monitor.
Side by side or Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode allows users
to check two 2D images on the same screen. Combination of
video and computer images side by side is also available.
