TVLogic at NAB 2019

Visitors to the TVLogic booth will be dazzled by the brightness of their new 3,600 nits monitor. But the real brilliance on display will be the technology inside their 4K LUT box that gives the latest color adjustment capability to any 4K critical evaluation monitor.

Entering the heart of the Central Hall at the NAB Show 2019 toward the TVLogic booth, C3639, the product that will probably first catch your eye is their F-7H mark-2 7-inch field monitor thanks to its remarkable 3,600 nits maximum luminance.

But, as Jin Lee, sales manager with TVLogic U. S. A. explained to me during our pre-NAB interview, what visitors really have to check out is the company's real time digital color management unit called the IS-mini 4K.

“This is a unique 3D LUT (Look Up Table) box that can be used for on-set camera preview,” he said. “This technology was originally developed by Fuji and later Wowow Entertainment in HD resolutions, but TVLogic acquired the technology at the end of last year and increased its capabilities to 4K, making it the first 4K LUT management box that is available for production today.”

The digital color adjustment technology running WonderLook Pro software lets users select either a custom 3D LUT or one that is included with it to view these custom color profiles on any professional 4K monitor.

True, many of the latest top 4K monitors now have this capability built in. But for all of those facilities who invested in significantly expensive critical evaluation screens before this capability was available, this solution will extend the usable life of a display.

Lee said visitors to the booth can participate in ongoing training sessions of the WonderLook Pro software Monday through Wednesday. The software comes free as a part the IS-mini 4K.

A new 5.5-inch LCD version, the new F-5A, that can be used as a field viewfinder will also be on display.

Last year they offered a this model with an OLED screen, but customers requested an LCD version because many feel LCD is easier on the eyes than the more contrasty look of OLED.

The F-5A has a peak luminance of 500 nits, and standard HDR OETF (Opto-Electronic Transfer Function) of PQ, S-Log 3 and HLG. This monitor also offers enhanced sharpness and a new peaking boost function for focus pullers.

The NPS-10 has built-in memory card slots and a USB port for professional still photogs and video shooters.

TVLogic will also be showcasing the NPS-10 compact and portable backup storage that boasts the ability to copy files directly to its internal SSD or HDD storage without external power or computer. The process provides the fastest back-up speed using the company’s patented “X-copy” technology.
