Flat Panel Design with Separate Signal-Processing Unit
LUMA Series monitors have been designed to make installation as easy and as flexible as possible. They consist of
extremely thin and lightweight LCD displays, and a highly advanced signal-processing unit (Multiformat Engine Unit
(MEU-WX1)) that can accept almost any type of HD or SD input format. This ‘separate unit’ approach not only allows
the LCD display to be made as thin and as lightweight as possible, but it also allows flexible placement of monitor
controls and interface connectors. The LCD display and Multiformat Engine Unit are connected via a single multi-pin
cable*, up to 10 meters long (optional), which avoids having multiple cables hanging from the LCD displays themselves.
The optional SU-558 monitor stand has a biaxial joint in its neck assembly, allowing the LCD displays to be positioned at
various heights and tilt angles – meeting a wide range of application needs.

Superb Picture Performance
Sophisticated I/P Conversion using X-Algorithm Handling interlace signals with LCD monitors can be a difficult
task, but with the LUMA Series, this concern is a thing of the past. This is because they combine sophisticated I/P
conversion with Sony’s original X-Algorithm technology to obtain the best results for both static and moving areas of the
picture. With conventional LCD monitors, interlace signals are displayed on the progressive LCD pixel array by combining
two adjacent picture fields into one picture frame. Since each frame is formed by two fields, this method is effective for
static areas of the image, but it can often result in jagged shape noise along the oblique direction of fast-moving
objects. To avoid this, the LUMA Series uses a picture adaptive Still Mode and Motion Mode in the I/P conversion process. By
comparison of the pixels in the proceeding and following fields, the I/P conversion will operate in either Still or Motion
Mode. For pixels where motion is not detected, the I/P conversion will simply copy pixels from the proceeding field to
create the absent scanning line. In contrast, when motion is detected, picture frames are created from interlace signals on a field basis by interpolating every other line. Sony’s innovative X-Algorithm technology intelligently compares the pixels above, below, and in the diagonal direction of the moving picture part, and then inserts a natural scanning line. The direct result of this adaptive I/P conversion is much smoother image reproduction for pictures both in the still and moving areas.

AR-Coated Protection Panel
The LCD panels of the LUMA Series use a robust AR-coated protection layer, which minimizes the chance of scratching
the panel during transportation. The AR coating has two unique characteristics: it provides a high transmission rate of
the internal light source to keep the picture as bright as possible, while keeping reflection from ambient light to a
minimum. As a result, when used in bright lighting conditions, high contrast is still maintained even in dark areas
of the picture – a clear benefit over CRT monitors. Excellent Brightness and Contrast While conventional LCD monitors can tend to be dark, the LUMA Series provides high-brightness and high-contrast images by use of super-wide aperture LCD panels. In
addition, the use of precisely manufactured RGB color filters allows these monitors to reproduce colors with stunning
depth and saturation – creating highly natural images. Wide Viewing Angle The LCD panels used in the LUMA Series have a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees, horizontally and vertically, with minimal reduction in picture contrast. This allows images to be
viewed from various positions and angles.

Input Versatility

Multi-Format Signal Support
LUMA Series monitors are designed for operations today, and for DTV operations tomorrow. The MEU-WX1 can accept
almost any SD or HD video format, both analog and digital. These include composite NTSC and PAL, component 480/60I
and 575/50I, progressive 480/60P and 576/50P, and high-definition 1080/50I, 1080/60I, and 720/60P. The MEU-WX1
can also accept 1080/24PsF and 1080/25PsF. The MEU-WX1 comes equipped with typical analog interfaces
as standard, including composite (NTSC/PAL), component (525/625), RGB, and Y/C* 1. Digital interfaces are offered as
optional boards to meet budgetary and user needs. To keep the unit compact in size (1RU high), the analog
inputs share the same four BNC connectors, which all provide loop-through capability. The MEU-WX1 additionally accepts input from various types of analog computer signals. With its high-performance scan converter, it can accept input signals from VGA to SXGA* 2.

Operational Convenience
Advanced Marker Settings
The LUMA Series can display various area markers, including a center marker, aspect markers, and a safety zone marker. The
brightness of these markers can be selected from three different levels, white, gray, and dark gray. What’s more, users can select either a black or gray matte to fill the outer area of the aspect markers. These flexible marker controls, together with the choice of many different aspect markers, make the LUMA Series an extremely convenient display device for a variety of shooting scenarios – from standard video acquisition to digital cinematography.

20 inch data/video by Dell
The 2001FP's Dell design combines style and functionality. Sitting on a stable, silver, semicircular base, its slim, black bezel adds only three-quarters of an inch to the top and the sides of the display and one inch along the bottom. The 2001FP is highly adjustable, too: it swivels smoothly 45 degrees to each side, tilts 20 degrees backward and 5 degrees forward, and the telescoping neck adds about five inches of height. The push of a button releases the panel from the neck, which makes the 2001FP easy to store, transport, or connect to a VESA wall- or arm-mount. And as we've come to expect from larger LCDs, the 2001FP pivots from Landscape to Portrait mode, making legal-size documents and Web pages easier to view. Unfortunately, you'll have to download pivot software from Dell's Web site; we wish it had come bundled with the display. The onscreen menus are fairly easy to control using three small adjustment buttons on the lower right of the bezel; a fourth button selects the signal input.

A true multimedia display, the 2001FP has loads of connections. It's compatible with PCs and Macs and accepts both analog and digital video signals (unfortunately, you can't adjust the contrast and some other image settings when connected via the digital video interface). Tube watchers can take advantage of the 2001FP's picture-in-picture capabilities by connecting additional video sources, say, a camcorder, via its composite and S-Video inputs. The display also sports four downstream USB 2.0 ports--two on one side and two in back--useful for connecting a joystick, a keyboard, or any other USB-driven peripheral. A pliable silver loop on the back is big enough to corral a handful of cables.

The 2001FP generally scored well in CNET's image-quality tests. Text looked sharp in documents and spreadsheets and on Web pages. However, we found some bumps and spots in blocks of colors, and there were minor flaws in some of our grayscale tests. In our informal video-motion tests, the 2001FP didn't perform noticeably better than the other LCDs we've tested, despite its 16ms pixel-response time; although the streaking and ghosting was not egregious, there was detectable noise and some degradation of fine detail. Still, such flaws are present on all LCDs to some degree, and the 2001FP's image quality should satisfy most users.

A great number of monitors are compliant with the VESA standard. VESA standard means a hole pattern on the back of the monitor: 3"x3" or 4"x4" (75mm x 75mm or 100mm x 100mm). The diameter of the screws are 4 mm. Many LCD monitor manufacturers worldwide agreed on the VESA standard - a major accomplishment. The four holes may be centered or are located on the lower edge of the monitor. With some models you might have to remove the original stand (if the electronic is not located in the foot) before you will see the 4 holes. VESA standard for monitor mounting mentioned above refers to LCD monitors, also called flat panel monitors or flat screen monitors. For plasma screens there is a new hole pattern - 200mm x 200 mm.

Most LCD monitors come with the VESA standard hole pattern, but there are some exceptions. We have compiled  VESA monitor mount reference charts where you can find all common LCD monitors manufacturers, a listing by flat panel model numbers, including information if the particular LCD monitor is compliant with VESA standard as described above.

What does the term, VESA standard, mean?

[VESA] stands for Video Electronics Standards Association. This is an international non-profit corporation, which represents more than 100 corporate members worldwide. VESA supports and sets industry-wide interface standards for the PC, workstation, and computing environments. VESA promotes and develops timely, relevant, open standards for the display and display interface industry, ensuring interoperability and encouraging innovation and market growth. For more detailed

Guide to renting Monitors

renting audio visual equipmentToo often, audio visual needs end up at the bottom of a meeting planners' list. You have a speaker to line up, an audience to gather, materials to create, and a host of details from meals to sleeping rooms to worry about. But if the wrong equipment comes in, you find out in a hurry how important it is.

Still, planning for the av does not have to be a complex task. Your rental supplier should be able to do most of the work for you.  We need only a few basic pieces of information to make sure your meeting comes off without a hitch.

A checklist for meetings that include computer projection.
Most meetings today involve a computer at some point. This is what you need to know in advance if you will be renting equipment to display computer graphics.

  • What kind of computer will you be using? IBM compatible, Macintosh, or something else? If it's an iMac, be sure to mention that to your rental supplier, because their requirements are different than other computers.
  • What is the computer's resolution? SVGA is 800 x 600, XGA is 1024 x 768, SXGA 1280 x 1024, and UXGA 1600 x 1200.
  • If you need to show a workstation–or any other computer that's not VGA, SVGA, XGA, SXGA or Macintosh–what is its horizontal scan rate?
  • If you're using a laptop, make sure you know how to activate its monitor output. (Newer laptops can be programmed in the windows setup to have the monitor output activated at all times. Others might have a command such as Function-F5 to activate the monitor output. Be sure to try this before your meeting begins.)
  • Will you be showing a video? Then you will need a monitor that has a video feature like the Dell above
  • Will you be using transparencies?   You will need a visual presenter.  Elmo
  • Will you be using slides?
  • How big is the room you'll be using?
  • How many people will be attending the meeting?
  • Is darkening the room possible? If possible, would it be a problem for your meeting to do so?


Types of equipment
Once you've gathered the above information, there are still a few choices you'll end up making that will affect the quality of the image you get and the cost of your rental. The most important is the type of computer display device you'll use.

Large screen monitors
Generally, if only a handful of people will be present, 30" to 42" monitor is your best bet. If the impression you make is especially important, you may want to consider a plasma monitor, which is a flat-screen display, usually 42" or 50" diagonal. Either way, a monitor has excellent resolution and you will not have to darken your meeting room.

LCD projectors
If you need to accommodate 10 people or more and especially if color graphics, brightness and contrast are important to you, you'll want an LCD projector. We have projectors for different screen sizes, brightness and resolutions available for rental to accommodate any specific application. If you need to travel, you can rent a projector that weighs from 5 to 10 pounds. If you need to keep room lights on or expect a large audience, we can provide projectors up to 5,000 ANSI lumens in brightness.

Screen and sound
Your last decisions involve the size and type of screen and the sound system you'll use. For a large meeting, selection of either can be complex. Room size and conditions, seating arrangements and factors such as lighting, acoustics, and the types of other equipment you are using all affect what you need. Your best bet is to get an expert  involved, and such advice is available at no charge.
