Marshall Electronics introduced a new 27-inch 2K/4K compatible Quad-Viewer Monitor at IBC that is designed to give users “the convenience of a multi-viewer with superior image resolution and advanced functionality.”
The QVW-2710 Quad-Viewer has four independent 3G-SDI inputs to enable users to view four channels at once scaled to the highest resolution.
It uses an all-digital TFT-MegaPixel active matrix LCD system with 2560×1440 (QHD) native resolution. Three different quad layouts are available and the side-by-side mode allows any two consecutive channels to be viewed on the screen at one time. In-Monitor Display allows on-screen text and tally indication, controlled locally or remotely via a variety of industry standard protocols.
“Generally, you need separate monitors to achieve the kind of image quality and the selection of features available in the QVW-2710,” claimed Marshall Electronics’ sales manager, Rob Foster. “The QVW-2710 is a cost-effective all-in-one solution for production, post production, broadcasters, and mobile units.”
The On Screen Display shows an embedded time code, embedded audio presence indicator and closed caption presence indicator for 608/708 captions. Stereo audio can be monitored for the selected SDI input through a front panel headphone jack. The QVW-2710 supports audio bars and markers, and has USB and Ethernet ports plus an RS-422/485 port with pass-through.
Additional features include: full calibration adjustment aspect ratio settings, blue-only mode and monochrome mode. Pixel-to-Pixel mode allows native display of any incoming image format. Users can set four function buttons to their desired settings for quick access and adjustment.
