Atomos Ninja V Mon, 09 Apr 2018 16:42:52 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19418@/talks/discussions image


Melbourne, Australia -- 9 April 2018 -- The latest incarnation of the famous Atomos Ninja line is here. Seven years after the world's most popular portable Apple ProRes recorders burst onto the scene, Atomos is delighted to introduce Ninja V - an all new compact 5.2" 1000nit high bright HDR monitor/recorder with unrivalled advanced features. It has a sleek modern design and weighs just over 11oz (320g) - perfect for mirrorless cameras, DSLRs and gaming.

The perfect small monitor

The near edge-to-edge high bright 5.2 inch screen has a stunning 1000nits of output coupled with an anti-reflection finish - allowing users to clearly see their images even in daylight. Use the color-accurate display with AtomHDR to see in High Dynamic Range, or load creative LUTs at the touch of a button. Ninja V gives you all the critical monitoring tools you need - histogram, false color, peaking, movable 1-1 and 2-1 pixel magnification, waveform, RGB parade, Vector scope, 8ch audio level meters and more!

Perfect 1" thin recorder

Record up to 4Kp60 10-bit video over HDMI 2.0 in edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR direct to affordable SSD drives. The Ninja V's sleek 1" (2.5cm) deep aluminium body is crafted for maximum portability and durability, stealthily attaching to any camera. A truly beautiful design.

HDR perfection every time

The Atom HDR engine ensures perfect exposures when shooting HDR. It delivers a stunning 10+ stops of dynamic range to the LCD in real time from Log/ PQ/HLG camera signals. Playout Log as PQ or HLG to a larger HDR-compatible screen. The display can be calibrated to maintain perfect color accuracy over time.

Long records on affordable storage

Record direct from your camera's sensor and bypass the internal compression quality and recording time limits. It runs from a single Sony-type battery for hours. The new compact AtomX Drive SSD offer robust affordable storage. Available from Angelbird, G-Technology and now also Sony Storage Media Solutions, who join as our newest licensed drive partner. Ninja V also works with Master Caddy II.

Designed for your camera!

Atomos HDMI control protocols allow recording to be automatically triggered, timecode matched and HDR metadata set by a wide variety of cameras. Realtime Log-to-HDR profiles allow users to take away the exposure guesswork in HDR production.

Audio inputs

Audio can be input directly from the camera digitally via HDMI, or fed in analogue via a stereo 3.5mm line/mic socket - especially useful for cameras that do not have a mic input.

Endless open expansion!

Enhance the capabilities of the Ninja V through the ingenious modular expansion slot breaking out connectivity for high speed video, audio and power. Expansion modules will dock onto the battery slot of the unit and offer advanced features such as continuous power modules. Atomos and third party accessories will be available in the future.

Atomos CEO Jeromy Young explains: "Ninja V is the result of years of development and expertise. It combines the best of what we do at Atomos and squeezes it into one small box. It sits stealthily on your mirrorless camera, yet it is packed with power. It's what everyone wants! Small, sleek 5" and future proofed with AtomOS and the modular expansion slot - at $695 it's a no brainer. Put simply, Ninja V is the most versatile outdoor monitor and portable ProRes recorder ever. We can't wait to see how it unlocks creativity for our users."

Hisense ULED XD is real TVs revolution Thu, 10 Jan 2019 22:45:06 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 21296@/talks/discussions Hisense uses Dual-cell ULED XD panel layer that puts a 1080p module displaying a grayscale image between a full array LED backlight and a 4K module. Panel has 2,900 nits peak brightness.

Also they have 512 direct led backlight zones.

Prototype used 65-inch VA panel. With peak brightness as we told above at 2900 cd/m² and a black at 0.0018 cd/m² we have real contrast ratio greater than 200 000:1. In EU and US most probably it'll be only in 2020.


Actually this guys matched top reference monitors approach - check our interview about such

Such layer has 3000:1 to 5000:1 contrast, so combined it is staggering numbers, as in real room black level will reach OLED, and not in the large zones as usual, with brightness reading top Samsung sets.

BenQ 24" SW240 PhotoVue monitor with 95% DCI-P3 coverage Wed, 02 May 2018 15:10:46 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19622@/talks/discussions image

OSTA MESA, Calif. --- May 1, 2018 --- BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today released the new SW240 24.1" PhotoVue Photo Editing Monitor. Presenting photography professionals, enthusiasts and students with the most affordable AQColor SW PhotoVue Monitor to date, it supports 99% Adobe RGB color space for greater and more natural color reproduction and hardware calibration via BenQ's Palette Master Element software for optimal, long-lasting, accurate color performance users can trust. The new monitor completes BenQ's SW PhotoVue professional photography IPS portfolio, which includes the award-winning SW2700PT (27" QHD), SW271 (27" 4K UHD HDR) and SW320 (32" 4K UHD HDR).

"Great artists rely on great tools, which is why we offer a complete family of professional photography monitors to suit every level, from the new value-priced 24.1" SW240 up to our 32" display," said Jason Lee, product manager at BenQ America Corp. "We want to make professional tools accessible to everyone, whether you're just starting out or you're a pro upgrading an old monitor, the SW240 is the perfect choice. It fits in our professional lineup with pristine color accuracy and without the hefty price tag of similar professional monitors."

Unparalleled Color Reproduction at an Exceptional Value

Engineered with all the advantages of a high-end professional monitor, the debut of the BenQ SW240 24.1" monitor is a photographer's dream. The 10-bit display shows more than 1 billion colors and allows users to enjoy the smoothest color gradations of even the most detailed images. Its 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) improves RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable color reproduction, and having Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces gives users the truest and most representative view of the original image. Featuring BenQ's AQCOLOR™ technology, the SW240 provides out-of-the-box, factory-calibrated color accuracy with industry-standard color space to bring brilliant colors to life. The 99% Adobe RGB color space offers a greater range of color reproduction for shades of blue and green, resulting in a more realistic color representation for outdoor and nature photography.

Hardware Calibration for Consistent Images

The SW240 hardware calibration adjusts the monitor's image processing chip rather than the graphics card output. As a result, users are never fooled by what they're seeing on screen and can trust that images will stay consistent with their original copies. What's more, BenQ's Palette Master Element software allows users to easily tune and maintain the color performance of the monitor at its most optimal state.

Eye-Care Protects Eyes From Fatigue After Long Hours

The creative process can sometimes be a grueling one. Now users don't have to fret over how much time they're spending in front of their BenQ monitor. Engineered with BenQ's exclusive Eye-Care technology, every PhotoVue Series monitor reduces eye fatigue for user comfort, enhanced productivity and workplace safety during extended use.

The SW240 PhotoVue Photographer monitor is now available at retail price of $399. A shading hood, which can be mounted to suit portrait or landscape orientation, is also available for purchase (MSRP $99).
