Canon U.S.A. has announced two new 4K/UHD displays – the DP-V2420, a 24-inch high-luminance 4K reference display and the DP-V1710, a 17-inch 3840 x 2160 4K reference display, for use on set, in broadcasting vans, and in studios. Both displays feature a Canon-developed image-processing engine, proprietary backlight system and an IPS LCD panel.
The DP-V2420 is a 24-inch 4K reference display that supports HDR standards and display methods, and provides high luminance and black luminance performance. This 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 DP-V2420’s expanded dynamic range greatly increases color expression and the contrast between the light and dark areas of an image. This helps to achieve luminance expression close to that of the naked eye while also retaining 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 delivers HD, UHD, and 4K imagery in mobile production vehicles. In addition to providing UHD resolution, the display features a compact body size. Supporting HDR standards and display methods, the DP-V1710 delivers a level of black luminance performance supporting a wide range of users who create Full HD, 4K/UHD, and HDR content.
