Bosch Unveils Lcd Cctv Monitor
Designed for the CCTV security market, the MON201CL monitor includes two looping composite video inputs, two looping audio inputs, and one looping Y/C input. It also has an analog VGA input to accommodate the increasing use of PCs and digital video devices in security applications. The addition of the MON201CL means that Bosch now offers a full range of 15-, 17-, and 20-inch flat panel LCDs for environments where visual appeal is important. The new monitor’s compact, space-saving design has an LCD panel depth of only 8.64 cm. Like other monitors in the range, the MON201CL comes with a base mount and uses the VESA standard 100 mm hole pattern on the back panel to secure the LCD monitor to a wall bracket – so it can be installed easily wherever customers need it. The compact 20-inch monitor has a wide viewing angle, so is an ideal choice for public-view applications. Specific features to support public-view monitoring include a DC power outlet for a 12 VDC camera; on-screen menus accessible via front panel controls or a remote control transmitter; and a front panel lockout feature to prevent access once the monitor setup is completed. MON201CL is compatible with analog output devices such as the Allegiant Matrix Switcher System, the Divar Digital Recorder and standard multiplexers. It is also recommended for use with devices and systems with VGA output of 800 x 600 maximum resolution. When necessary, the MON201CL can be scaled for compatibility with 1024 x 768 resolution via its on-board software.
