Panasonic Unveils 25.5 Inch 3D Production Monitor

If you’re planning on picking up Panasonic’s 3D camera, you’re sure going to need something to monitor your video on. Thus, the debut of the nearly $10,000 BT-3DL2550.

This is clearly not a television set aimed at the average consumer. The BT-3DL2550 is expensive, small, and extremely capable.

The screen’s a mere 25.5 inches, but it sports a 1920 x 1200 resolution. It’s a 3D display that works with polarized glasses, rather than the active glasses that will be used with consumer televisions. It takes HD-SDI imputs, which are used by Panasonic’s 3D camera, as well as DVI-D.

It’s also an incredibly durable monitor, designed for use instead of for looks. It’s got a lightweight aluminum frame and an aluminum back panel, rather than the consumer standard of plastic.

“With professional connectivity, including dual HD-SDI and DVI interfaces, exceptional color performance and a ruggedized frame, the BT-3DL2550 provides everything a production team would need for 3D monitoring in the field,” says VP of Sales Joe Facchini.

This kind of set won’t end up in your home, but it’s likely to see a lot of use in the filming of 3D movies when it comes out at $9,900 this September.
