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).

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.

Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB 1000nits HDR monitor Wed, 25 Apr 2018 16:29:16 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19551@/talks/discussions

Today EPI, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the new Philips Momentum 43" 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor (436M6VBPAB), the world's first HDR1000 monitor with the new Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR 1000 Certification. The Momentum also features Ambiglow technology. The Philips Momentum 436M6's combination of HDR 1000 with Ambiglow leads to an incredibly immersive entertainment viewing experience.


The Momentum 436M6 features Quantum Dot Color and DisplayHDR 1000 for a wider range of more accurate colors -- especially dark reds and greens -- that stay crisp and clear even in bright light. DisplayHDR 1000 delivers a dramatically different visual experience. With a peak brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m^2^, incomparable contrast and captivating color, images come to life with much greater brightness while also featuring much deeper, more nuanced darks. It renders a fuller palette of rich new colors seen on the display.

DisplayHDR is the display industry's first fully open standard specifying HDR quality. This standard spans across three performance tiers: DisplayHDR 400 (baseline), 600 (mid-range) and 1000 (high-end). These specifications are established using eight specific parameter requirements and associated test including: three peak luminance tests, two contrast measurement tests, color testing of the BT.709 and DCI-P3 color gamuts, bi-depth requirement test and a HDR response performance test.

"As with any new technology there can be confusion out there regarding HDR specs and benefits. VESA's new DisplayHDR standard will make monitor shopping easier by offering consumers a comparable standard to judge HDR picture performance between monitors," stated Chris Brown, Philips Monitors Global Marketing Manager, TPV. "We are very excited to launch the world's first DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the Philips Momentum 43-inch 4K Display. DisplayHDR 1000 level of picture performance will offer a more intense gaming and entertainment experience. The contrast and color really bring action scenes alive, like we've never seen before."

The Momentum 436M6 uses Ambiglow technology to add a new dimension to the entertainment viewing experience. This innovative technology enlarges the screen by creating an immersive halo of light around the outside of the screen. It uses a fast internal processor to analyze the incoming image content and continuously adapts the color and brightness of the emitted light to match the image. Users can adjust the ambience to their liking. It's a unique and immersive viewing experience especially suited for watching movies, sports or playing games.

With its 4K UHD resolution, the Momentum 436M6 can take advantage of MultiView technology. MultiView enables active dual connect so that you can work with multiple devices like PC and Notebooks simultaneously, making complex multi-tasking work a breeze. It's easy to watch a live football feed from a set-top box on one side, while playing a gaming console on the other. This technology makes the Momentum 436M6 perfect for extreme productivity or entertainment.

The Philips Momentum 436M6 will be available later this summer for $999.99.

Atomos Sumo monitor and recorder Tue, 25 Apr 2017 23:12:52 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 16804@/talks/discussions image


The first production monitor that also records 4K 12bit Raw, 10bit ProRes/DNxHR, plus 1080p60 live switching and recording

Melbourne, Australia – 23rd April 2017: Atomos once again redefines the workflow options for video creatives by creating the first production/studio monitor to combine a 19” HDR 1200nit 10+ stop panel with 4K 12bit Raw or 10bit 422 ProRes/DNxHR recording and HD recording up to 240p or live switching and recording of four 1080p60 channels.

Adding HDR and 1200nit brightness to a 19” monitor at an MSRP of $2,495 is an amazing feat itself, but the addition of recording, switching and playback is a true revolution, completely redefining how production monitors will be used on set and in studio. It gives clients and crew on set instant access to review recorded content in HDR quality and doubles as a grading and editing monitor for laptops in the field. The live switching and recording is another dimension again adding the flexibility to live switch between four 1080/60p channels, record 4 x ISO channels and mix a live record complete with cueing, cross fade and hard cuts.

“Seeing innovation come to life is the most exciting part of making technology products. Sumo is one of the most remarkable video products I have worked on.” said Jeromy Young CEO and co-founder of Atomos. “Versatile and highly advanced yet simple to use, it covers all kinds of high quality production from end to end at a fraction of traditional costs. The Atomos Sumo is truly revolutionary”.

Go HDR. In the field & the studio

Sumo’s 19” 1920x1080 10-bit LCD panel is driven by the AtomHDR engine which precisely maps the Log/PQ/HLG from popular cameras, game consoles or TV makers to perfectly resolve 10+ stops of HDR in real time. The brightness range and vivid colors of HDR bring scenes to life either on the monitor itself, or when output to larger HDR/Rec709 displays for on set review. It can also be used with popular NLE or grading suites for affordable HDR or SDR editing or grading in the studio.

12-bit Raw, 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR up to 4Kp60

Capture the RAW output from Sony FS5/FS7/FS700, Canon C300MKII/ C500 or Panasonic Varicam LT over SDI up to 12-bit 4Kp30 as CDNG or 10-bit Apple ProRes / Avid DNxHR up to 4Kp60 / 2Kp240 depending on the camera’s capability. The processing power of Sumo can preserve pristine quality direct from the sensor with data rates of up to 3.2 Gbps. Record direct to high capacity and widely available 2.5" SSD's that provide an affordable solution for long recording times.

Live Switch and Record up to four 1080/60p channels, 4 x ISO record and playback

Switch and mix a live record and stream or record 4 x HD ISO recordings using the QuadLink SDI connections. Switch between feeds on screen with cueing, cross fade and hard cuts from the locked sources or tag and adjust final edits with advanced metadata tagging preserving ISO feeds, with the desired final result infinitely editable.

Balanced XLR Monitor & Record with 48V Phantom

Eliminate the need for a separate audio recorder by using the full size XLR connections to connect and power external microphones for balanced analogue audio with dedicated meters and adjustments for frame delay and gain. 48V phantom mics or line level audio are all seamlessly synchronized for the most advanced audio feature set in a monitor today. There is also a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers for on set instant immersive review or complete internal recording review anytime anywhere with clients or production team.

High Bright 1200nit 19” calibrated 1920x1080 monitor

The extremely bright 1200nit display means you can accurately monitor, even when outside in daylight. Additionally, for the ultimate isolated viewing performance an optional hood is available. Like all high-end monitor’s, Sumo also has calibration to compensate for the natural color and brightness drift that monitors exhibit over time. Sumo’s calibration input lets you use X-Rite’s i1DisplayPro to always ensure accurate HDR and Rec709 monitoring.

Quad SDI & HDMI 2.0 in/out

Seamlessly connect any SDI or HDMI device and convert between HDMI 2.0 & 3G QuadLink/6G/12G SDI in any combination. Quad SDI inputs connect cameras with multiple 1.5 or 3G SDI outputs without the need for converters. HDMI 2.0 supports up to 4Kp60 input/output along with the very latest Atomos open protocol that supports HDR automation including importing of camera settings. There is also support for Genlock and LTC timecode.

Rugged construction and mounting options

The Aluminium alloy chassis with built-in armor houses ten mounting points around the bezel/top/bottom/side, a rear panel VESA mount and an included stand for a variety of mounting configurations. The optional mounting plates connect 2 x V-Lock / Anton Bauer batteries which in tandem with our patent pending continuous power system allows batteries to be hot swapped to ensure you’re never without power in the field. The Sumo delivers all of this connectivity while still maintaining a total weight of 6.2kg (13.7lb).

The 19” Atomos Sumo will launch in Q3 2017 for an MSRP US$2,495.

DisplayHDR Test Tool released Fri, 11 May 2018 11:31:14 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19687@/talks/discussions

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA^®^) today released a new DisplayHDR™ test tool that allows users to confirm the display parameters set forth in VESA's High-Performance Monitor and Display Compliance Test Specification (DisplayHDR), including brightness, color and contrast performance of high dynamic range (HDR) laptop and desktop monitors. The new DisplayHDR Test tool has a command line interface that enables professional and lab-level users to test and evaluate HDR displays at the three performance levels outlined in the DisplayHDR spec using an off-the-shelf calibration colorimeter. VESA also announced today that it has seen strong momentum in the adoption of its DisplayHDR standard, with several new certified displays being introduced this calendar quarter.

Growing Momentum of DisplayHDR Standard with Launch of First DisplayHDR 1000 Certified Display

Announced in December 2017, DisplayHDR is the display industry's first fully open standard specifying HDR quality. To date, nearly a dozen displays have been certified under the new spec across the three performance tiers (DisplayHDR 400, 600 and 1000) and released to the market. Among these is the first display to be officially certified for the DisplayHDR 1000 specification - the recently announcedPhilips Momentum 43-inch 4K display (436M6VBPAB). VESA anticipates many more display products to complete certification this year. Future releases of the spec are expected to reach beyond LCD to address other display technologies, including organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), as well as higher HDR performance levels. All tiers require support of the industry standard HDR-10 format.

"As with any new technology there can be confusion out there regarding HDR specs and benefits. VESA's new DisplayHDR standard will make monitor shopping easier by offering consumers a comparable standard to judge HDR picture performance between monitors," stated Chris Brown, Philips Monitors Global Marketing Manager, TPV. "We are very excited to launch the world's first DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the Philips Momentum 43-inch 4K Display. DisplayHDR 1000 level of picture performance will offer a more intense gaming and entertainment experience. The contrast and color really bring action scenes alive, like we've never seen before." 

Transparent testing methodology without costly and cumbersome hardware

To verify HDR display performance, the DisplayHDR Test tool projects the display patterns defined in the published VESA DisplayHDR certification tests onto the screen. The user then points a self-provided colorimeter at the test patterns and uses the colorimeter's software to measure and record the display's capabilities. These results can be entered into a separate program to compute the final score and make an accurate assessment. Future versions of the test application may drive the sensor in the test tool and compute the score directly.

Chas Boyd, principal program manager with Microsoft Corp., noted that the DisplayHDR Test tool app has an important role to play, in concert with the specification, to help drive adoption of HDR technology. "HDR is still not well understood by consumers, and there exists a unique opportunity to educate and drive awareness in the market regarding the entry point for HDR," said Boyd. "Using this tool will allow those considering moving to HDR monitors to assess the quality for themselves and encourage them to make the leap."

"As a leading monitor controller manufacturer, MStar provides a broad range of chip sets that enable consumers to experience the latest immersive display technologies, such as HDR, in their end products. Working within the VESA organization, we have teamed up with key players across the display ecosystem to establish a shared, open HDR standard for the PC industry that ensures all of the key display components involved in enabling HDR work together, including the panel, GPU, backlighting and other display electronics. We are proud to be a part of this important industry-wide endeavor," stated Kevin Tseng, general manager of Monitor BU, MStar Semiconductor.

According to Vincent Chiou, associate vice president of the Display Business Unit of ASUS, "HDR promises to deliver an entirely new level of visual experience for consumers. Having co-worked closely with a clearly defined grading system like VESA's DisplayHDR standard, ASUS assures users that they are getting the display quality that they are asking for. This applies both to gamers and movie watchers who want more realism, and professional content developers who need more accuracy. Even the entry DisplayHDR performance level provides a very noticeable step-up in HDR quality for mainstream consumers, while the mid-range and high-range levels provide the serious photographer or professional artist the assurance they need when making a high-end product purchase. ASUS is leading the charge in this effort, with plans to introduce multiple products across all three performance tiers this year.

DisplayHDR Performance Parameters

The DisplayHDR specification establishes three HDR performance levels for PC displays -- DisplayHDR 400 (baseline), DisplayHDR 600 (mid-range) and DisplayHDR 1000 (high-end) -- using eight specific parameter requirements and associated tests. They comprise:

  • Three peak luminance tests (small spot/high luminance, brief period full-screen flash luminance, and optimized use in bright environments);
  • Two contrast measurement tests (native panel contrast and local dimming);
  • Color testing of the BT.709 and DCI-P3 color gamuts;
  • Bit-depth requirement test (stipulates minimum bit depth, confirmed via a simple visual test);
  • HDR response performance test (analyzes the speed at which the backlight can respond to changes in luminance levels, a key parameter for gaming and rapid action in movies).

A consumer-level version of the DisplayHDR Test tool will be available later this year, featuring a more consumer-accessible graphical user interface. The next release will also include a list of available colorimeters that meet the spec's requirements for accuracy and tolerance.
