New Hi-Res Flat-panel Security Monitors From Bosch

Product Profile

With their ergonomic, compact and aesthetically pleasing design, Bosch's new MON152CL30 and MON172CL20 colour LCD flat-panel monitors are ideal for virtually any security application.

The MON152CL30 features a 15-inch 1024 x 768 pixel TFT Active Matrix LCD panel and has a resolution of 450 TV lines, while the MON172CL20 features a 17-inch 1280 x 1024 pixel TFT Active Matrix panel and a resolution of 500 TV lines.  This high resolution combined with slim outline - 64 mm for the MON152CL30 and 48 mm for the MON172CL20 - makes these monitors the top choice for large-screen, space-limited applications.  The LCD design uses long-life fluorescent backlights that eliminate the brightness degradation associated with aging CRT-type monitors.  Moreover, without the annoying flicker of CRT monitors, they can be used for longer periods with little or no eyestrain.  The monitors also consume 50% less power than conventional CRT monitors.

Each monitor features inputs for composite video, audio, and Y/C - and an analog VGA input to accommodate the use of PCs and digital video devices in security applications.  Adjusting display parameters is easy with the user-friendly on-screen menus (available in several languages) and front-panel controls.

Their versatile design allows the monitors to automatically accept PAL and NTSC signal formats, and power supply voltages from 100 to 240 V AC.  The units can, moreover be viewed in a variety of positions because of their wide range of viewing angles: 120 degrees horizontal and 100 degrees vertical for the MON152CL30 and 140 degrees horizontal and 130 degrees vertical for the MON172CL20.

  • High-resolution
  • Compact, slim design
  • Composite video, audio and Y/C inputs, plus analog VGA input
Low power consumption - less than 50% of CRT monitors~
