Thank you for purchasing our LCD Monitor Kit.
This LCD Monitor is designed to be used as an
external video display, allowing the operator to
step back from the camera while still being able to
frame and capture the action without having to
look through the usually small or non-existent
cameras built-in viewfinder.
These monitors are compact enough for camera
top mounting or attaching to a tripod, crane, jib
or arm - and large enough to be seen on a
desktop or rack mount from a distance. It's light
weight, low power consumption and low cost
make it ideal for any DV and HD video camera.
The monitors have image orientation controls
where the picture can be flipped for DOF (depthof-field) adapters.
To insure best use of this unit, please read
this user’s manual carefully.
Important Safety Instructions
For your own safety and that of your equipment,
always take the following precautions.
!
Use only the power adapter that came with your

• the power cord or plug becomes frayed or
otherwise damaged • you spill something into the case • your display is exposed to rain or any other

LCD Monitor Setup – AV Cable
to Camera
! Connect the yellow RCA or BNC end on the AV Cable to
your cameras video out or other source.
Example of the BNC Video out on a Canon XL2 and a Sony
PMW-EX3 Video Camera.
This LCD Monitor is compatible with any Canon, Sony,
Panasonic and JVC Cameras including HD models as well as
Digital Cameras and any other video source. Video source
must have an RCA or BNC video out to output the video to
the LCD monitor. Some cameras may require an adapter
such as a 'Male to Male RCA Adapter' or an 'S-Video to RCA
Adapter'.
Example of the Video adapter that comes with many
professional video cameras. (Mini Plug to RCA/S-Video)
Note: Canon XL2 Users:
The AV jack panel next to the battery well on the right side of
the XL2, you'll find an S-video jack, a BNC video jack and a
yellow RCA composite video jack. There's a small switch just to
the left of the BNC jack which toggles the video signal between
the BNC and RCA video jacks. If you're plugged into one of
these two jacks and you're not getting a signal, it's probably
because this switch isn't positioned correctly. It's very tiny and
kind of easy to miss! See photo above.
