Prototypes of two new UHD/4K studio monitors are being shown by JVC, each featuring 10-bit panels and 12-bit colour processing. The DT-U28 is a 28-inch UHD model, while the 31-inch DT-U31 features full 4K resolution. Both support
12G-SDI along with HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 for 4K support. With their high resolution and four HD-SDI inputs, the monitors can also be used as quad-split displays for broadcast monitoring.
Both support HDR, with Hybrid Log-Gamma 3D LUTs. Colour gamut is expected to be REC2020, with automatic calibration using an optional sensor. There is a waveform and vectorscope, with 16-channel audio metering, plus support for DisplayPort graphics devices.
They are TSL RS-485 UMD compatible and work with other standard control tools, with remote control via IP. The DT-U Series monitors should be available early in 2018.
Also new at IBC is JVC’s DT-G Series of four HD production monitors, from 17- to 27-inch, with 8-bit panels and 12-bit colour processing. They have 3G HD-SDI connections with loop, plus HDMI 2.0, and support a wide range of video signals, including 4K scaling.
Features include: waveform monitor; vectorscope; histogram; 16-channel audio; 4K pixel-to-pixel zoom, for any area of the screen; 3D LUT support; and built-in calibration processing (optional USB sensor required). All four (DT-G17E, DT-G21E, DT-G24E and DT-G27E) run on either mains or battery, for studio or location use, and can be remotely controlled over IP.
