Canon unveils 4K display3 March 2014
Canon has made its entrance into the production display market with the launch of the DP-V3010, a 30-inch reference display specifically designed for colour grading and 4K video production. The new display, together with Canon’s Cinema EOS System, offers an input-to-output solution for 4K digital cinema and wider video production workflows.
The DP-V3010 has been designed to deliver 4K resolution alongside accuracy in colour reproduction. The display is powered by a custom-developed image processor designed and manufactured by Canon. A 10-bit panel driver works with the processor to enable the display of 1024 gradation levels for each RGB colour to deliver gradation characteristics across all content types.
Kieran Magee, director of professional marketing, Canon Europe said: “The new
DP-V3010 represents an exciting step for Canon that complements our existing 4K portfolio. We’ve listened carefully to the needs of the market throughout the development of the display to deliver an exceptional product suited to even the highest quality productions.”
Combined with the IPS LCD panel, the display supports the most commonly used cinema colour space, DCI-P3, as well as the colour gamut specifications of various broadcast standards and the Adobe RGB colour space.
The IPS LCD panel features a resolution of 4096×2560 pixels, enabling the display of native DCI 4K resolution without image scaling. Canon’s image-processing technology, combined with the IPS LCD panel, achieves a contrast ratio of more than 2000:1, the minimum recommended by SMPTE for digital cinema post production work.
Equipped with a dedicated picture mode that supports Canon Log Gamma, the DP-V3010 enables conversion of footage shot using Cinema EOS System cameras into images suitable for monitoring whilst on set. The display accepts a wide variety of 4K video input signals from 23.98p to 60p, including the 50p frame rate.
