Two new 4K UHD monitors from Canon

Canon introduces two professional displays, designed to meet the needs of 4K broadcast and cinema production workflows.

Canon’s 4K news: XC15, C700 and 2 monitors

Simultaneous with the announcement of the XC15 and C700 video cameras, Canon introduced two new references in their line of monitors: DP-V2420 and DP-V1710.

The DP-V2420 is a 24-inch high-luminance reference display ideal for High Dynamic Range (HDR) content creation, whilst the DP-V1710 is an industry-first 17-inch professional display created for outside broadcasting vans and studios. The models combine Canon’s image processing engine with a proprietary backlight system and an IPS LCD panel to deliver incredible colour reproduction, high-resolution and high-contrast visuals.

The Canon DP-V2420 professional 24-inch 4K reference display supports HDR standards and display methods increasingly used for next-generation video production, and provides high luminance and black luminance performance essential for screening HDR content. Canon’s DP-V2420 display qualifies as a Dolby Vision mastering monitor and complies with the ITU-R BT.2100-0 HDR standard which specifies a peak luminance 1000 cd/m2 and a minimum luminance 0.005 cd/m2. Allowing for the review and confirmation of high-quality 4K images, the display’s expanded dynamic range greatly increases color expression and the contrast between the light and dark areas of an image to achieve luminance expression close to that of the naked eye while also supporting the expression of natural colors and a sense of three-dimensionality.

The DP-V1710 4K/UHD is the industry’s first 17-inch 3840 x 2160 resolution professional-model display, which can be used with the 19-inch rack mounts that are commonplace in broadcast studio sub control rooms and broadcasting vans. The DP-V1710 is ready to deliver stunning HD, UHD, and 4K imagery in mobile production vehicles. In addition to providing high-image-quality UHD resolution, the display features a compact body size that makes it ideal for use on-set, carrying during on-location shooting or for use in broadcasting vans with limited space. Additionally, supporting HDR standards and display methods,3 the DP-V1710 delivers a level of black luminance performance demanded for broadcasting, supporting a wide range of users who create Full HD, 4K/UHD, and HDR content.

The DP-V2420 and DP-V1710 displays are scheduled to be available in November 2016 and February 2017 for list prices of $32,900.00 and $13,500.00, respectively.
