Description Technical Specs More Info...
The Flanders Scientific LM-2140W is a calibrated 21.5” Multi-Format broadcast monitor with 3G/HD/SD-SDI, Component, Composite, & DVI-I Inputs. This unit features full 12-bit video processing and an 8-bit panel capable of reproducing over 16.7 million colors on screen. The 21.5” LM-2140W and its slightly larger 23” sibling the LM-2340W were purpose built as full-featured lower cost monitoring solutions for environments that do not require quite the same level of performance and color fidelity of FSI’s flagship LM-2461W reference monitor. While not equipped with the same advanced Color Fidelity Engine found on the LM-2461W these units are still fully calibrated and will offer sufficient color accuracy for general color judgment in a wide array of professional monitoring applications. The LM-2140W is equipped with a native HD 1920x1080 resolution LCD panel and features a power efficient LED backlight offering long-term calibration stability.

This unit features many broadcast monitor basics like a Blue Only Mode, Monochrome Mode, Markers, Safety Areas, H/V Delay, and Tally Lights. Like all Flanders Scientific monitors the LM-2140W also comes standard with advanced features like 12 Selectable Scopes, Focus Assist, Time Code Display, Freeze Frame Picture and Picture, Audio Disembedding, Audio Level Meters, Artifact Free Pixel Zoom, Adjustable Exposure Check, On-screen Alarms, and Advanced Pixel Level Measurement. Best of all these ancillary features work across all inputs and formats ensuring that you get the most out of your monitor regardless of the source.

The LM-2140W is incredibly well suited as a field monitor thanks to its durable, yet lightweight, aluminum frame and ultra-efficient LED backlight. At just 9 lbs (11.2 lbs with stand) the LM-2140W is not only lighter than most comparably sized professional broadcast monitors, but even weighs several pounds less than the majority of 17" broadcast monitors on the market. Additionally, the LM-2140W consumes a mere 28 Watts of power making it one of the most efficient full-featured native 1920x1080 resolution broadcast monitors available at any size. More importantly, the LM-2140W is available with an optional customized hardshell carrying case that is the same size as the case used for our 17" units. The LM-2140W is also available as part of a complete field package kit that includes a custom carrying bag with integrated hood, VESA to Light/C-Stand adapter, and clear protective screen covers for one low price: LM-2140W Field Package.

Thanks to its standard 100mm VESA mounting holes the LM-2140W can also be rack mounted using our optional VESA Rack Mount Kit (RMK-VESA) or mounted on any variety of other optional VESA mount accessories such as our popular VESA to Light Stand Adapter (MM20) for onset applications or optional articulating arm wall mount (MM-ART-730).

The LM-2140W supports virtually any signal format from NTSC/PAL to HD and 2K. Additionally, the LM-2140W features the same advanced video processing hardware found on our top of the line monitors ensuring that practically any broadcast standard signal, including interlaced and PsF formats, will be displayed accurately. Even advanced 12-bit, 4:4:4, and XYZ signal formats are all supported over the 3Gbps SDI (SMPTE 425M-AB) inputs. With support of both Level A and Level B 3Gbps SDI the LM-2140W is compatible with virtually all 3Gbps SDI sources and provides many advanced viewing modes for multiplexed (2 x SMPTE 292M) Level B signals as explained here.

For advanced color grading environments or other very color-critical workflows FSI highly recommends our top of the line LM-2461W reference grade monitor, but for virtually every other general video monitoring application the LM-2140W, and the slightly larger LM-2340W, are an ideal choice at an unbeatable price. At just $2,495 with a native 1920x1080 resolution panel, standard 3Gbps SDI, and an advanced feature set rivaling units costing 10 times as much the LM-2140W sets a new standard for value in professional video monitoring.
