Postium has just improved the view for production engineers working in bright sunshine, often a difficult task when using traditional equipment. The OBM H series utilises the latest panel with high brightness, offering great visibility under strong sunlight. By incorporating Postium´s technology, the OBM H series offers precise colour reproduction as well as the high brightness making it easy and rewarding to work with to give the best results.Designed for daylight monitoring in HD/SD broadcast and motion picture production monitoring applications, the OBM-H120 utilises a 12.1″ 1280×800 resolution LCD with a maximum luminance output of 2000 cd/sq.m

The new monitor is available in the UK and Ireland from distributor Cache Media Ltd. MD Stuart Cameron said: “This monitor is a real step forward for engineers and production technicians who have always found it hard to judge picture quality when working in bright sunlight. We are pleased to offer it to our clients along with advice and support from our UK Headquarters.

A valuable USP for the Postium is that the OBM-HDR provides the function of comparing HDR and SDR(Standard Dynamic Range) on the displayed image on the OBM series simultaneously.The OBM-H Series accepts up to 1080 60P signals scaled to native resolution and is equipped with standard 3G/HD-SDI input interfaces (x2) as well as an HDMI 1.3a input and analogue component/composite I/O. Closed Captioning decode and display for CEA-708 (HD-SDI closed captioning standard) and CEA-608 (SD-SDI closed captioning standard) is supported via SDI input.

The unit’s High Dynamic Range (HDR) Mode applies a High Dynamic Range display gamma curve to HDR content. The OBM-H Series supports PQ EOTF (SMPTE ST 2084), Hybrid Log Gamma and S-Log3. Postium’s HDR function allows users to view both highlights and shadow details within scenes simultaneously, thus resulting in more natural and realistic reproduction.

It supports 3D-LUT for accurate colour reproduction, camera log conversion and custom 3D LUT File Import plus a host of other essential features. It can also be fitted with a V Plate for use with IDX batteries.
