To coincide with the release of its new cinema cameras, Canon has announced the DP-V2410 4K Reference Display, a monitor specially designed for a 4K post-production workflow.
Housed within a metal frame, the monitor is roughly 24-inches diagonally and weighs in at approximately 26lbs. Inside, it’s packing a 17:9 10-bit IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel with accurate DCI-P3 color reproduction and a 2000:1 contrast ratio.
The DP-V2410 is also capable of HDR support and internal debayering for RAW 4K video, specifically that of Canon’s just-released EOS C300 Mark II camera.
For color reproduction, the DP-V2410 covers broadcast standards ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE C, as well as ‘nearly complete coverage’ of the DCI-P3 digital cinema standard.
Interestingly, the DP-V2410 is designed to be used as a live-view monitors for Canon’s C300 Mark II and C500, both of which can include camera color and quality settings on the display, so there’s no need to be constantly checking the back of the camera.
The Canon DP-V2410 4K Reference Display is scheduled to be released in November 2015 at an MSRP of $18,000.
