The ORCHID OR-181 was designed as an 18.5" Master confidence monitor for broadcast control rooms, transfer facilities, and other production control and editing areas. The OR-181 includes a wide variety of production tools used by video professionals including real-time Waveform, Vectorscope, Histogram, Audio Level Meter, Audio Phase Monitor and Audio Peak Alarm, along with 3D monitoring and analysis functions.
The OR-181 uses a 1366 x 768 high contrast ratio panel that can display high-quality images from any source or aspect ratio. All OR-181 screens are color matched at the factory and can be auto-adjusted in the field using an optional color probe system (Konica Minolta CA-310 Color Analyzer).
The OR-181 comes standard with two auto-sensing 3G-SDI inputs, along with DVI-I, VGA, and analog inputs. This unit can be used as a portable stand alone monitor equipped with front panel stereo speakers, integrated carrying handle, and desktop stand. An optional rack mount kit with tilt capability is also available.
The OR-181 has 7 user-assignable function keys as well as 4 rotary encoders for simple access to various monitor settings and functions. Analysis functions and measured data graphics are displayed as overlays while original video images remain intact. Additional display options include full screen views of the Waveform, Vectorscope, Audio data, and "Quad View" layouts.
The OR-181 can de-embed and display up to 16 channels of audio using up to sixteen 64-segment tri-color Audio Meters with user-adjustable reference levels. The ALMs also provide numerical indicators of headroom levels and a peak hold function. The Audio Channel Loss warning feature alerts the user with any detected audio errors during monitoring.
Other advanced features include 3D Review, Anaglyph 3D Views, Side-by-Side 3D, False Color Mapping, ClipGuide, Color Peaking Filter, and more.
