Canon announced today two new professional 4K/UHD displays in response to the needs of content-creators – the DP-V2420 professional 4K reference display, a 24-inch high-luminance model ideal for High Dynamic Range (HDR1) footage and the DP-V1710 professional 4K reference display, an industry-first 17-inch, 3840 x 2160 display ideal 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, that when combined deliver excellent color reproduction and high-resolution, high-contrast imaging performance.
The Canon DP-V2420 professional 24-inch 4K reference display supports HDR standards and display methods3 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.
The Canon 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 stunning HD, UHD, and 4K imagery in mobile production vehicles. The Canon 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.
