The Panasonic BT-LH2170 is a high-performance LCD monitor measuring in at 21.5″ with native 1920x1080 Full HD resolution. Built with an aluminum frame, this production monitor features an IPS panel with an impressively wide viewing angle: 178° vertical and horizontal.
This versatile studio monitor has a bevy of features: advanced 2D and 3D assist, true color processing with a 3D look-up-table (LUT), HD/SD closed captioning, waveform, vectorscope, YMAP, and zebra display.

Powered by 12V DC (and AC Integrated), the BT-LH2170 uses an eco-friendly panel with mercury-free LED backlight and low power consumption.
The monitor’s high brightness (250cd /m²), high contrast (1000:1), It delivers exceptional imagery with superb color accuracy and exhibits minimal changes in brightness and color due to the viewing angle. The LH2170’s 3D LUT with six-pole color correction includes a look-up table for each signal level, and applies 10-bit image processing to each RGB color to balance the six coordinate axes of the three primary colors (RGB) and their complementary colors (CMY), resolving color drifting at low light levels and keeping colors vividly natural. In addition, a black mode makes dark image areas in low-gradation scenes easier to view.
Its advanced 2D assist features include an in-monitor display; a Y-Map display that makes it easy to confirm a luminance level map; a Zebra display; and a two-window display, which allows for two separate HD/SDI inputs to be viewed simultaneously for comparing different signals. The two-window display can also be combined with advanced assist display functions, including Y MAP, which allows you to see the image at each luminance level in one window, while looking at the standard image in the other window.
The LH2170 monitor’s 3D assist functionality -- including a 24p input for use with 3D camera rigs -- is ideal for production crews that require 3D review in the field. The LH2170’s 3D assist functions include top and bottom display in addition to side-by-side display (for a 2D view of various 3D checks including composition, convergence, color and luminance, focus and zoom position, and parallax); and a Focus-in-Red focus assist to emphasize sharply focused image areas.
