Canon expands 4k/UHD professional display range with high-luminance 24-inch and industry-first 17-inch models
London, UK, September 2016 – Canon introduces two professional displays, designed to meet the needs of 4K broadcast and cinema production workflows. 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.
Next generation imaging technology – the DP-V2420
The DP-V2420 is Canon’s flagship 4K reference display, developed in response to the diverse requirements in leading-edge broadcast and cinema production workflows. Supporting the new ITU-R BT.2100 standard for HDR image parameters, the high-luminance reference display produces incredible colour reproduction that’s not been seen before. With an expanded dynamic range, the contrast between the light and dark areas of an image is increased, enabling a sense of three-dimensionality.
The display’s built-in debayer is able to show native 4K RAW footage direct from compatible Cinema EOS cameras, saving costs on an external debayer unit and dramatically improving 4K workflows.
Setting a new benchmark for 17-inch professional 4K displays – the DP-V1710
Delivering stunning 3840 x 2160 resolution in a compact body, the DP-V1710 is the broadcast industry’s first 4K (UHD) 17-inch professional display. Weighing just 8KG, it’s perfect for on-location shooting, whilst the size and ability to use with 19-inch rackmounts makes it ideal for use in outside broadcasting vans with limited space.
The DP-V1710 supports HD/3G and 6G-SDI interfaces, enabling it to handle a 4K signal with a single cable. Optimised to support HDR EOTFs, the DP-V1710 delivers the level of black luminance performance demanded for broadcasting, supporting professionals who create Full HD, 4K, and HDR content.
The ultimate in reliability
The DP-V2420 and DP-V1710 are encased in sleek and robust bodies and feature easy-to-use on-screen operation including assignable function buttons allowing various functions to be registered.
The displays sit alongside the DP-V2410 and DP-V3010 in Canon’s 4K professional display line-up, providing a range of display options for all broadcast and cinema production needs.
