In September 2013 sonoVTS was founded by fusion of the two companies, VTS Studiotechnik GmbH and sono Studiotechnik GmbH. The experience of almost 30 years from both companies in all areas of the broadcasting market has been merged into one venture. sonoVTS GmbH is the manufacturer of the HD2line and the Q-Series, two successful broadcast display product lines.
Completeness, Quality and Reliability - HD2line makes the difference
HD2line PRO represents the newest generation Broadcast LCD Monitors from sonoVTS, utilizing state-of-the-art video/audio processing hardware combined with the most precise LC Display Technology available today. The HD2line PRO Series is based on sonoVTS`s exclusive high-precision 16 Bit Display engine, and 10 Bit full HD Panels. In designing these monitors, the priority was to achieve the full performance and capabilities required by Broadcast Professionals. There is no compromise in core features like colour accuracy, resolution, precise imaging and picture quality. By combining these features with a sophisticated color management algorithm makes HD2line Pro the ideal instrument for critical image monitoring.
Flexible Input and Output Configuration
The HD2line Pro Series of professional Broadcast Monitors use a modular slot design for custom configuration and easy service. Even Power supplies can be changed in the field without opening the cabinet. Inputs can be configured according to individual needs. Three input board slots are available. Optional boards can be installed in any board slot, and in almost any combination for maximum flexibility. A multi-format 3G/HD/SD-SDI input with an optional Fiber Optic Module supports data rates up to 3 Gb/s and accepts SD-SDI, HD-SDI, Dual-Link HD-SDI, and 3G-SDI. Accepted signal formats amongst others: 480i/29.97, 576i/25, 720p/50 and 720p/60, 10-bit/12-bit RGB 4:4:4, 1080psf/23.98, 1080p/23.98, 1080psf/24, 1080p/24, 1080psf/25, 1080p/25, 1080i/25, 1080psf/30, 1080p/30 and 1080i/30(29.97), 10-bit 4:2:2 1080p/50 and 1080p/60(59.94). Multiple analog and digital audio I/O modules complement the range of available options, including discrete analog or digital inputs and de-embedded audio outputs.
DCS Control Software and External Remote Control
Built into the DCS Software (Display Control Suite) is also a Centralised Monitor wall Control. A graphical orientated, intuitive and user friendly software is provided for real time or offline monitor wall configuration. The remote control software gives access to all parameters on individual monitors as well as pre-defined groups of monitors in a larger system or OB van. A complex monitor wall can easily be created by drag and drop monitors into your layout. DCS gives a perfect overview of the settings of each monitor. HD2line PRO Broadcast LCD Monitors integrate easily with existing Tally systems and controllers. Dynamic and Static UMD / Tally support is provided via Ethernet network or up to 12 GPI contact closures, each GPI is individual configurable. In addition, an optional hardware control panel is available.
