press release

Munich – Bosch Security Systems launches its new UML Series 42 and 55 inch High Performance HD LED Monitors for analog video, digital video recorders (DVRs) and PC applications. Available via Bosch’s wide distribution network, the monitors feature high image quality in both horizontal and vertical viewing angles. The new screens are 30 percent thinner than the previous 42 inch versions. Their analog VGA input accommodates the widespread use of PCs in today’s security surveillance systems, utilized for example in city control rooms, airports or railway stations. Furthermore, the setting of the screen is specifically designed for security cameras. The color accuracy tolerance at 6500K (0.003 tolerance) is more strict and the performance in terms of color accuracy is higher than comparable products.

High image quality
The UML Series 42 and 55 inch High Performance HD LED Monitors support resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 and automatically adapt to the input resolution of the incoming video signal. Additionally, the panel refreshes every eight milliseconds to provide crisp, clear images without smearing. By using White Light Emitting Diodes (WLEDs), they are able to provide higher color saturation than their predecessors. Thin and light in form as well as weight, the monitors are also ecologically friendly, as they are halogen-free and have low power consumption.

True color enhancement
To deliver high picture quality, the monitors automatically focus on setting the correct color, temperature and gamma curve. Due to the non-linear relationship between brightness and input voltages, gamma corrections ensure that color reproduction on the screens is accurate. For example, dark regions in the picture are increased in brightness while the contrast between light and dark areas is decreased overall.

Reliability proved by internal and external testers
“To increase customer satisfaction, our new UML Series 42 and 55 inch High Performance HD LED Monitors have undergone stringent assessments by both in-house and external controllers,” said Ad Biemans, Product Marketing Manager Video Systems at Bosch Security Systems. “For example, all products have successfully passed tests for alarm standard (EN50134), temperature, damp heat as well as shock impact and vibration, thereby fulfilling the standards we and our customers expect from Bosch.”
