  • Flat Panel LCD Monitors For CCTV

    I am looking for recommendations on 17"-20" flat panel LCD monitors designed for CCTV applications. There are tons of monitors out there claiming great contrast ratio, resolution, etc. and that works fine if I am connecting to my Dell but it seems that in most cases these are LCD monitors designed for the PC industry which are modified to accept analog CCTV (BNC) inputs. It looks like the industry is addressing this by adding technology that will automatically adjust for the input source resolution (DVR, Matrix, Camera, etc.) and I have tested some good monitors from AGN-PRO and Orion Images. I need to place an order in the next month that will include about 35-40 monitors and I would appreciate any suggestions on LCD monitors for CCTV applications with excellent clarity, metal case, and hard screens. Thanks,

    AGN pro and Orion Images make good monitors. I have tested and installed quite a few lcd monitors. The Mace Vernex monitors are also in good demand and offer good adjustment functions. TVS monitors are also very good with adaptive contrast for dark area in the field. I have installed a few and have had great results. Those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head. If I think of anymore I will add to the post.

      Panasonic makes killer LCD monitors, some of the best I've seen in the cctv field. A bit spendy but well worth the money. They have 2 BNC Inputs, RCA Inputs, VGA Inputs, and RCA Audio with Loop Out.

        I know flat panel is what you want but it is hard to beat a CRT monitor for image quality. If they could just get rid of that big box.

          Good Feedback

          Thanks for the feedback. I have recently tested the AG-Neovo/AGN-PRO SX series against several other good units and the clarity in my opinion is superior. It has a 4ms response time versus most others with 8ms or more. This may be the difference. One strange thing is that the AGN-PRO version has a 1 year warranty as I understand it and the AG-Neovo version has a 3-Year warranty. They appear to be the same unit but maybe someone can spread some light on that. It is tough giving up that CRT quality.

            Everyone thought that flat panels would be all that you could buy, because of how big and awkward the CRT is. But the reliability and quality of the picture keeps their demand up. Not to mention much cheaper in price when comparing size.
