8″ Multi-Format Color Electronic Production LCD Monitor/Viewfinder with Built-In Waveform, NTSC/PAL, 16:9/4:3


The Panasonic BT-LH80W Multi-Format LCD is a 7.9″ color display/viewfinder designed to be used for high definition field monitoring. The display boasts features usually not found on LCDs of this size, including pixel-to-pixel and focus-in-red functions. The monitor can also be interfaced with a variety of Panasonic series cameras through a direct 15-Pin viewfinder connection. In addition to its wide array of features, the BT-LH80W can be mounted side-by-side in any standard 19″ rack system.

Format Compatibility
The BT-LH80W handles almost any format in standard or high definition and can be customized to switch between them automatically. There is no flipping a switch, accessing a menu, or turning a knob.
Waveform Picture-In-Picture
The LCD will display the input signal as a waveform image. This can be vital for proper color correction and white balancing, especially when conditions make it hard to calibrate by eye.
CineGamma Function
The included CineGamma function, specifically designed to be used with the Varicam, provides the camera operator with precision color reproduction.
High Viewable Angle
A 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angle ensures that you can continue to view the LCD no matter where you are. This can be useful during productions where space is limited.
Low Power Consumption
The ability to conserve energy in the field is especially important when shooting without access to a constant power source. The BT-LH80W consumes a very small amount of power, making it ideal as both a field monitor and personal viewfinder.
Rack Mountable
The optional RAK-80 can be used to house two LCDs side-by-side in a standard 19″ racking system.
