No film set would be complete without one or more Panasonic 17 inch monitors in video village. The Panasonic BT-LH1700WP is the de facto monitor used on most films because it's a bright, rugged LCD monitor with crisp images and features a wide viewing angle, multiformat compatibility, audio monitoring, and switched SDI inputs.
This monitor can be powered by an optional V-Mount battery when in the field or away from standard AC power.
