New Canon 4K Reference Monitors Offer Multi-Format Signal Support

At the 2018 NAB Show Canon will introduce two new professional 4K HDR Reference Displays that support industry standards such as Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) as well as Canon’s proprietary log gammas—Canon Log, Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3.

The new Canon DP-V2421 24-inch 4K professional reference display features a 12G-SDI terminal and delivers high luminance and high contrast, making it ideal for viewing 4K and HDR content in broadcasting studios and when producing on-location video. The 17-inch DP-V1711 features the same image performance in a more compact design that not only makes it easy to transport for on-location shooting, but is also ideal for use in environments where space is limited, like aboard mobile production trucks.

Featuring 12G-SDI terminals (four IN and four OUT), the DP-V2421 and DP-V1711 allow for the easy transmission of 4K 60p footage with a single cable compared to reference displays that are equipped with only 3G-SDI terminals that require four cables for transmission of footage. The reduced number of cables can benefit users in several ways, including reduced costs, quicker installation time and saving space while on-location.

In addition to support for a variety of standard formats, the new reference displays also include shooting assist functions for all HDR standards such as a built-in waveform monitor. The displays also feature built-in HDR metering, which overlays different areas of input images with colors depending on their luminance. This allows for convenient review and confirmation of HDR images.

Canon will also allow customers to upgrade, for a fee, their 17-inch models, the DP-V1710 and DP-V1711, increasing both displays maximum luminance to 600 cd/m2. Raising the maximum luminance improves the displays’ ability to express greater detail in bright areas of the screen—which is useful when reviewing high-luminance video in such environments as bright shooting locations or inside studios and relay vehicles.

The DP-V2421 and DP-V1711 are scheduled to be available at the end of April for an estimated retail price of $39,000.00 and $18,000.00 respectively.
