Canon’s newest reference monitor, the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display, is a 24-inch 4K set that can display HDR content, boasts high, stable luminance and 12G-SDI ports, allowing the device to display 4K 60p footage with only one cable, instead of a more traditional four-cable setup on a device with 3G-SDI terminals. The company said the display has a 600 nit brightness with 1000 nit peak, and are color stable for HDR work. The monitor uses a variety of standards for displaying accurate color, including Canon Log, Canon Log 2, and Canon Log 3.
Interestingly, the display can communicate with many of the company’s high-end video and still cameras to display shooting settings and functions right on the monitor. This allows directors and other crew to check the camera settings without having to interrupt the DP.
The display, when it ships in December 2017, will have a price of $20,000.

4K Reference DisplayCanon Announces Its Newest Professional 4K HDR Reference Display Featuring Stable High-Luminance And 12G-SD1 Terminals
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 12, 2017 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the Canon DP-V2411 4K HDR1 Reference Display, a 24-inch display that features stable high luminance and 12G-SDI terminals, ideal for use on-set in broadcasting vans, and in-studio needs.
Highlighting Canon’s proprietary display image processor, LED direct backlight system design and an In-Plane Switching (IPS) LCD screen, the DP-V2411 display provides users with detailed and precise color reproduction as well as high resolution, high contrast and high luminance, allowing for accurate review and confirmation of 4K and HDR video content.
The DP-V2411 Display reaches peak luminance and full-screen white luminance of 600 cd/m, helping to prevent changes in luminance that can occur depending on the video images being viewed. These video images feature stable high-luminance performance for even more precise luminance and color review confirmation of 4K HDR video when shooting on location or in a studio.
Compared to a 4K reference display equipped with 3G-SDI that would require four cables to transmit 4K 60p footage, the Canon DP-V2411 Display features 12G-SDI terminals requiring a user to only use a single cable. By reducing the number of necessary cables, the display supports more cost-efficient, less time-consuming installation, while reducing weight and saving space.
Alongside the current lineup of Canon 4K HDR reference display, the Canon DP-V2411 supports Electro-Optical Transfer Functions (EOTF) such as Hybrid Log-Gamma, a broadcasting HDR standard; Perceptual Quantizer (PQ), a HDR standard for film production and transfer; and Canon’s proprietary log gammas—Canon Log, Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3. In addition, the new display features convenient shooting assist functions for all HDR standards as a waveform monitor. This displays the luminance level of input signals and a false color function, which overlays different areas of input images with colors depending on their luminance allowing for convenient review and confirmation of HDR images.
