Sky selects Canon for 4K post system14 September 2014
Sky will be adding Canon’s DP-V3010 professional reference displays to its Mistika post production systems. Sky will be equipping its three suites with Canon’s professional reference monitor, which delivers 4K resolution alongside precision in colour reproduction.
The DP-V3010 features a custom-developed image processor, designed and manufactured by Canon, which helps ensure consistent brightness and colour, designed to make it easier to achieve a higher level of uniformity across the screen during post production editing.
Chris Johns, Sky’s chief engineer, broadcast strategy, commented: “We continuously strive to bring the highest quality programmes to our viewers. This means using the very best equipment. As we continue to lead the way in post production, introducing the best hardware into that process is essential in delivering the high standards that our customers rightly expect from Sky.”
The DP-V3010’s 4096 x 2560 resolution means that its IPS LCD panel can display native DCI 4K video (4096 x 2160) without any scaling. The 30-inch reference screen also offers a wide 178° viewing angle to ensure true-to-life viewing for the entire production team.
During operation, the DP-V3010 maintains colour accuracy by automatically correcting any changing colour and luminosity over the course of time.
