The 17.3" V-R173-DLW monitor features 3G, Dual Link and DVI inputs and displays Waveform & Vectorscope, Digital Audio and a host of additional information in a 10 bit "no compromise" video path. In Quad-View mode, the input signal can be broken into four quadrants that simultaneously displays all of the critical information needed to keep your signal path within all critical specifications.

Additional features include IMD protocol support for TSL, NVISION, Image Video, and MEI (Marshall Electronics) tricolor tally and in- monitor text systems via RS-485. Other display features include full CEA-608-B and CEA-708-B Closed Captioning, Timecode and VANC data.


1920 x 1080 LED-backlit panel

The V-R173-DLW features an all-digital 1920x1080 LED-Backlit display. The LCD panel features a brightness of 400 cd/m² and a 600:1 contrast ratio making it ideal in a variety of environments and lighting conditions.

Multi mode, Vectorscope and Waveform Monitor mode

The DLW monitor series includes a real-time Waveform monitor and Vectorscope along with support for SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and Dual Link SDI. With the monitor in Multi mode, the monitor will break into four quadrants and display Signal Input information (Link Status), Embedded Audio levels, a Waveform monitor, a Vectorscope and live video simultaneously. Additional layouts provide the ability to view the Waveform monitor, Vectorscope, SDI Link status and Video individually.

Closed Captioning Decoding

The DLW monitor allows for decoding of Closed Captioning in the EIA-608 or EIA-708.

In-Monitor Display

OSD Features (On-Screen Display)

Embedded time code and an embedded audio presence indicator can be displayed on the screen in a variety of configurations. Closed Caption presence indication is also provided for 608/708 captions.

Advanced Features

In-Monitor Display allows on-screen text and tally indication, controlled locally or remotely via a variety of industry standard protocols.

Color temperature adjustment, aspect ratio settings, blue-only mode, and monochrome mode are a few of the advanced features allowing the V-R173-DLW to be at home in any broadcast environment. Pixel-to-Pixel mode also allows native display of any incoming image format.

Four User-Definable Function Buttons

Four user-definable function buttons allow quick access to numerous settings and features including aspect ratio, monochrome mode, color temperature, and more.


feature display for waveform monitors


The built-in waveform monitor can be displayed in various aspect ratios, positions, and transparency options. The waveform monitor displays YUV/RGB in both Overlay and Parade modes.


The built-in Vectorscope allows users to monitor color gamut range in real time. It displays in various sizes, positions, and transparency options.
