JVC intros 3D production analysis monitor
WAYNE, NJ – JVC (http://pro.jvc.com) is now offering a 24-inch HD 3D LCD production analysis monitor, the DT-3D24G1U . The compact monitor supports virtually any 3D camera setting, with advanced measurement tools to confirm that left and right images have been properly aligned. This is the latest addition to JVC’s Vérité G Series product line.
With its X-Pol circular polarizing system, the DT-3D24G1U displays 3D images that can be seen using inexpensive polarized (passive) glasses, which avoids potential flicker and power issues associated with active shutter glasses. Since there is no need to synchronize glasses with the display, the monitor works well for viewing environments where multiple displays are used, such as control rooms or production trucks. Plus, the DT-3D24G1U can be battery powered, making it ideal for location shoots.
Compatible with side-by-side and line-by-line 3D formats, the DT-3D24G1U offers a number of tools for checking 3D signals, including a 3D cursor that enables binocular disparity to be easily adjusted for optimized 3D effects. Other 3D features include unique 3D measurement markers for left and right channels, mirror/rotation of one channel for dual-camera rigs, split left/right signals for fine tuning camera positions as well as iris and white balance, and left/right sequential display to allow viewing of footage without 3D glasses. In addition, a left/right swap allows users to check whether cables from the camera(s) to the monitor are connected properly.
Beyond 3D functions, the DT-3D24G1U is equipped with many professional features found in the Vérité G Series. The LCD panel offers 1920x1200 pixel resolution with 10-bit digital processing and 3G and dual link HD-SDI inputs. Its built-in dual mode waveform and vectorscope provide an easy way to check and monitor input signals from both channels for camera adjustment. The monitor also offers various gamma selection options, displays up to 12 channels of audio metering, supports LTC/VITC time code, and provides on-screen time code display that can show any time code difference between both inputs.
The DT-3D24G1U has a list price of $11,995 and will be available in January 2012.
