JVC reveals affordable 31-inch UHD/4K DT-U series professional monitors

JVC introduced at 2018 NAB New York two new 31-inch UHD/4K LCD monitors to support today’s growing 4K workflows.

With a series of features, including a new zero latency image processing mode, ideal for lip sync monitoring, the first of the new monitors from JVC Professional Video will be available in November.

Ideal for critical video applications in the studio and on location, the affordable JVC monitors feature 10-bit panels and 14-bit color processing to ensure high quality image processing and display. The DT-U31, previewed earlier this year at the 2018 NAB Show, offers UHD (3840×2160) resolution, while the DT-U31PRO offers full DCI 4K (4096×2160) native resolution.

Both monitors from JVC support HDR functions, including Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and PQ-3 formats, and a range of camera log LUTs including S-Log, C-Log, and JVC’s J-Log. Color gamut support includes BT709 and BT2020, with auto calibration possible via an external X-Rite sensor probe. Calibration can be performed directly from the front-panel USB connection, so the monitor does not need to be removed from its installation.

Multiple on-screen tools

DT-U Series monitors from JVC Professional Video support 3D LUT 17x17x17 precise auto calibration, with built-in colour generator and calibration software. Supports X-rite i1 Display (special version) and JETI Specbos 1211 to directly plug into monitor USB port to auto calibrate. The calibration process time is as short as 15 minutes (X-rite) or 45 minutes (Specbos).

A new zero latency image processing mode creates minimal delay, which is ideal for lip sync monitoring. Both JVC monitors include 12G SDI or quad 3G HD-SDI input, as well as HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 for 4K input support. Users can also display four independent SDI sources in quad view mode for broadcast monitoring applications, and additional connectivity options are available for legacy sources.

Other features present in the JVC Professional Video monitors include convenient front panel controls with dual speakers, AC/DC power with integrated battery port, and on-screen tools including tally and 16-channel audio meters, waveform monitor, vectorscope with line selector, and histogram. The new DT U models also include an expansion slot for future options, including a fiber-to-SFP adapter. The DT-U31 is priced at $4,995 will be available in November, while the DT-U31PRO will be priced at $8,495 and be available in early 2019.
