JVC-V17L2DU Multiformat Video Monitor

A good choice for any work requiring the display of a variety of source types. In VVG condition, SEE NOTES & Photos for details.

The JVC-V17L2DU Multiformat LCD Video Monitor handles HD/SDI, Component, Composite, DVI-D (HDCP) signals and combines a number of features that make it a great choice for field or bench use.

This monitor still had the protective cover on the control surface and received very little use, if any.  

PLEASE NOTE:  There is a 1/2 inch long scratch in the upper right quadrant of the screen.  It is visible in the photos, in the blue bar of the test pattern, and in the firplace mantle behind ole what's his name.  There is a closeup of the scratch with an inch ruler for reference.  

It may be possible to buff this out or replace the front cover.
