The Cyclops-HD is Teletest’s World’s brightest LCD monitor and is being launched at this year’s IBC.
At 1,500nits, Managing Director Nick Rose claims the screen is five times brighter than almost any other LCD available today.
High resolution with HD-SDI inputs, the Cyclops-HD is designed for cameramen filming outdoors, particularly at sports events or nature and sea based documentaries.
Dave Crute from Rock Steadi Pictures says “The Cyclops-HD is perfect for use on my many Steadicam rigs. The screen is so bright that you can see the colour picture in direct sunlight.”
The Cyclops-HD can also include a 5.8GHz video receiver so it may be used as a director’s confidence monitor.
Another version of the Cyclops-HD allows any S3D camera-rig operator to set up their equipment on location. Nick Rose says that “The 3D card inside the LCD allows the stereographer to flip an image for a mirror rig and to align the camera using overlay and colour difference. Then they can view the images in 3D using the anaglyph mode and glasses.”
Prices start from £1,099 ex VAT for the Steadicam model, to £2,199 ex VAT for the S3D version.
