Available in two models, the DT‑U series provides native 4K resolution with 10-bit color depth
JVC Professional Video has announced two new series of studio LCD monitors to support today’s growing 4K workflows. Available in two models, the DT‑U series provides native 4K resolution with 10-bit color depth and HDR compatibility. The four models in the more economical DT‑G series convert 4K and 2K sources to full HD. The company is exhibiting the new monitors during the 2018 NAB Show (Booth C4315).
The 28-inch DT-U28U and 31.5-inch DT-U31U feature native 4K LCD panels with 3840×2160 resolution, LED backlight, wider color gamut, and HLG HDR and PQ HDR display for realistic imagery. Both monitors feature multiple 4K inputs, including 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI quad link, 4K/60p HDMI 2.0, and optional plug-in SFP adapter. Users can also display four independent SDI sources in quad view mode, and there are extensive connectivity options for legacy sources. The DT-U31E supports 100 percent DCI-P3 and 84 percent ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut, while the DT-U28E supports 100 percent Rec.709 and 80 percent DCI-P3 color gamut.
With sizes ranging from 17.3 to 27 inches, DT-G series monitors support 4K/60p HDMI and 2K-SDI signals. Each 8-bit panel has 10-bit signal processing and LED backlight, with the three largest models offering 1000:1 contrast ratio.
Both the DT-G and DT-U series are equipped with a new zero latency image processing mode with only a few lines of delay, which is suitable for lip sync monitoring. Both series also feature 3D LUT 17x17x17 precise auto calibration, with built-in color generator and calibration software, and support user uploaded 3DLUT cube files, which are convenient for color creation in post. Plus, with several built-in De-log LUTs (including JVC J-log1), the monitors can convert directly to ITU-Rec.709.
All models feature a built-in auto calibration function, with only an external X-Rite sensor probe required. Calibration can be done directly from the front-panel USB connection, so the monitor does not need to be removed from its installation.
Both the DT-G and DT-U series offer remote control via web browser. Users can check monitor status, adjust menu settings, and control all monitors in a facility remotely when connected to a LAN. All models also feature convenient front panel controls with dual speakers, AC/DC power with integrated battery port, on-screen tools including tally and 16-channel audio meters, plus built-in waveform, vectorscope with line selector, and histogram.
