Best dual monitor setup for FCPX Mon, 13 Mar 2017 15:18:04 -0600 tubefingers 16588@/talks/discussions Im currently running FCPX on a MacPro 2013 (cylinder) with a Dell 27 inch monitor via mini displayport out. Thinking of adding a 2nd monitor and having the Browser on the 2nd screen, maybe set up the 2nd monitor on its side as portrait mode for optimal use of space, I'm guessing it doesn't have to be another 27 inch monitor, just need enough room to have lots of libraries and event lists open and visible, anyone have a similar setup they can advise on? Cheers

4K is officially Dead... Greet your new 8K Masters... Thu, 05 Jan 2017 14:44:11 -0700 NickBen 16286@/talks/discussions

What's better than 4K resolution in a monitor? Four times 4K! Yes, previously only seen in prototypes or in sizes far too large for a desktop, we're excited to announce our new 8K monitor.

As the world’s number one monitor brand for three years running, we are relentless in our commitment to delivering the best visual experiences for our customers. It’s a mantel we don’t take lightly, which is why we’re so excited to deliver the world’s first 32-inch 8K and the world’s overall thinnest monitor, as well as a slew of other exciting products at #ces2017 in Las Vegas.

Dell monitor on display at the Dell Experience during CES 2017

In 2015, we brought you the UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor with its innovative curved display and the UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor with its stunning 5K resolution – both CES Innovation Award Honorees. In 2016, we announced our first OLED Monitor and brought the innovative InfinityEdge technology, that debuted in 2015 on XPS 13, to our monitor portfolio. This year, we announced an extensive new lineup of innovative monitors, including the Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K, the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor with Dell’s innovative HDR feature, two new innovative P-series monitors and the first consumer monitors to offer Dell’s InfinityEdge display on our updated S family of monitors.

Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K Monitor (UP3218K)

With our new UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K Monitor (UP3218K), we’re pushing the boundaries of innovation to feature four times more content than Ultra HD 4K resolution and 16 times more content than Full HD in addition to 33.2 million pixels of resolution compared to a 5K monitor’s 14 million pixels of resolution. The new UP3218K offers breakthrough realism with the finest details and color-critical performance for a truly transcendent visual experience thanks to Dell PremierColor, which offers 1.07 billion colors and 100 percent Adobe RGB and 100 percent sRGB, and an unprecedented 280 ppi to view most images in native format. Feast your eyes!

I'm saving up for a G85, and with that I'm looking for a new 4k screen.

The screen is going to be used as a monitor for my pc. I like to have 40" +.

My priorities are:

  1. viewing angle
  2. colour accuracy
  3. NON flickering when set to low brightness
  4. latency
  5. HDR ready

My budget hovers about € 700.

Any recommendations?

  • Thanks!

That makes it the best value monitor to date. (Best value with this feature set) Just wanted to give everybody a headsup. I waited for a monitor like this a while so I do not have to spent 1k for a great but pricey smallhd!

Lilliput monitor FA1014/S not starting... Mon, 14 Nov 2016 13:03:24 -0700 maxtol 16046@/talks/discussions Hi there!

I have this monitor but seems is jam in a infinite loop when I turn it on. This si what is happening: 1- turn on 2- from black screen to blue 3- keeps blue for 3 seconds then goes to black again 4- keeps black for 3 seconds and goes to blue again and so on...

I send an email to Lilliput support also with a video showing what is happening and their response was: "Reset the unit from Settings" whaaat!!?? obviously they don´t read or watched the video I uploaded. After this I tried to cantact them again but they never answer any other email or from contact form I send them. Lame support...

Anyway if someone can help will really appreciate.



REC 2020 - Finally, REC 709 is getting the boot Tue, 24 Jun 2014 19:06:16 -0600 shian 10664@/talks/discussions

"People mistakenly call it a color space," Griffis said. "It's actually a two-dimensional plane and what you really need to know if you're a creative is this is your palette of colors but what the horseshoe chart doesn't tell you is how bright each color can get. White will always be the brightest because it's the sum of all three primary colors."

"So we've got this interesting problem that we've lived with for the better part of 60 years where the colors in film go out farther but you can't get as bright and in television there are less colors but you can get brighter," Griffis told Gizmodo. "And the practical consequence of that for the content creator is that the Red Bus of London that looked so great in the movie looks like Campbell's Tomato Soup on the Blu-ray unless someone does something."

So Dolby (who makes the most amazing video monitors) finally did something. And When it hits TVs and Computer monitors... all this REC 709 bullshit can finally fuck off.

I am so damn happy... you don't even know.

F&V SpectraHD 4 EVF/Monitor 1280 x 720p with loupe now only $749 and even less on ebay. Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:57:36 -0600 majoraxis 15387@/talks/discussions Hi,

I have been looking for an combo EVF/monitor. The SmallHD 502 and Sidefinder was the functionality I was hoping for, but the price had put me off. Then I stumbled upon the SpectraHD 4 which seems like a potential alternative. The current price is $717.69 (it was $706.29) new on ebay (or $749 from F&V/Adorama/Amazon) with the loupe -


4.3" LCD Display with 1280x720px Resolution with 170-degree Viewing Angle. HDMI to SDI Conversion. Waveform, Histogram, Vectorscope, False Color, Zebra Overlays, Pixel to Pixel, Focus Peaking, Frame Guides, Audio Meters, Timecode and DSLR Scale. 1/4"-20 and Arri Rosette Mounting Options. Multiple Power Options: Sony NP-F, DC2.5mm, Mini-XLR. Only thing that seems to be missing is a LUT.


This was $1299 announced at NAB 2014, so it seems like a great value at $749 or less...

Anyone using one of the these?

Blackmagic Video Assist VS Atomos Ninja Blade Wed, 15 Jun 2016 04:05:31 -0600 club_irate 15221@/talks/discussions Need to pull the trigger between the Blackmagic Video Assist 5" VS Atomos Ninja Blade for my GH4. Urgently needs suggestion on which is the better one (now that the BMVA has got rid of its small problems via firmware). I have 2 of those recommended SD cards for the BMVA. So, ideally i would save 200$ on the SSD's. Looking at other pros and cons between the two which make the extra spending for Atomos worth or not worth it.

PIX-E5 + PIX-LR for bmpcc video monitoring and sound recording Tue, 11 Oct 2016 09:42:26 -0600 1917 15870@/talks/discussions Hi! I'm going to use bmpcc for short documentary, and i need good monitoring and sound capturing solution. I was going to buy Sound Devices MixPreD preamp to feed bmpcc line in, and SmallHD 502 monitor, but i heard about another one solution - PIX-E5 + PIX-LR attachment which using same preamps and limiters as MixPreD. This combo is cheaper and more comfortable in use, but i do not need in video recorder, so i will using pix-e5 only as a monitor. Does somebody use this combo? Will PIX-E5 works with bmpcc hdmi out? I think this combo will eat batterys quickly, so is it possible to get longer battery life if not recording video but just monitoring? Thank you!

Amoled screens clipping Sun, 04 Sep 2016 07:32:54 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 15654@/talks/discussions Note - in Russian, but main idea is clear


Building a high-DPI EVF with 4-5" screen Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:16:39 -0600 Sangye 12894@/talks/discussions I'm continually surprised by the fact that there is no cheaper / better alternative to the Zacuto, SmallHD, and Cineroid EVFs. High-DPI screens are being mass-produced for incredibly cheap in Asia, mostly for use in mobile devices. How difficult would it be to build an HDMI monitor in the 4" to 5" range, and a loupe with a diopter that fits to the frame? Seems like this should be doable with a basic knowledge of electronics, and perhaps Arduino or Raspberry Pi.

I'm seriously tempted to talk with some people who know more about this than I do, and think about crowdfunding such a project. Given the simple components, it should be possible to build a retina EVF and sell it for under $400!

edit -- specifically, I'm thinking of the 1080p displays used in phones like the HTC One (4.7") or the Samsung S4 (5"). This would give 1-to-1 pixel mapping for 1080p cameras, and 4-to-1 pixel mapping with integer scaling for UHD cameras, as well as the capability of a 2x 1-to-1 pixel map read-out. On these phones, such high PPIs are almost silly. However with a magnifying loupe, these high PPIs are suddenly being put to good use.

Not the most compact solution, and range is also limited.
