Dolby has introduced the 42-inch PRM-4200 professional reference monitor which the company says is the world's first LCD-based video reference display that accurately reveals true and deep black levels and provides higher contrast across the entire color spectrum and an unprecedented luminance range and level. The monitor will be available later this year. It uses a backlight comprised of red green and blue LEDs that are modulated individually on a frame-by-frame basis. The LCD panel is also modulated in real time as part of the dual-modulation process. From broadcast audio to digital cinema Dolby looks at the critical points in the entertainment chain that will ultimately deliver a compelling entertainment experience for the audience says Jason Power senior director of marketing broadcast Dolby Laboratories. In creating our new professional reference monitor we took a really close look at the video side of content creation and leveraged our expertise in imaging and manufacturing to produce a true next-generation reference display.
