Abundant Functions for Supporting HDR Production
HDR/SDR 2 Split-Screen Display
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display supports split-screen display of HDR and SDR signals. Since video can be displayed simultaneously on the left and right screens, differences in luminance ranges and gradation/brightness can be compared at a glance, thus allowing HDR shooting to be conducted with more confidence and efficiency.
Various other features can be combined to make HDR production easier to perform: Range Compression Display according to specific production applications, Clipped Display, Camera Information Display, and Waveform Monitor Display.
The DP-V1710 fits inside 19" racks making it an excellent choice for broadcast vans that are subject to space and weight restrictions.
HDR-Compatible Waveform Monitor Display
The waveform monitor can be selected to display HDR scales (e.g. SMPTE ST 2084 nit) or Canon Log (%) for maximum flexibility in HDR production.
HDR Range Variable Adjustment Function
Variable adjustment of the HDR range is possible to suit specific applications. For example, the dynamic range of the HDR standard signal or LOG signal can be displayed to fit within the luminance supported by the display main unit (range compression), or required actual luminance parts of the range can be displayed with the highlight range area excluded (range upper limit clipping). Desired values can also be registered in advance to function buttons or channel buttons. This lets you call up respective HDR standard videos for confirmation by one-touch operation.
HDR Meta-information Display
Metadata information (color gamut, gamma, maximum luminance, average luminance maximum value of content) from PCs for HDMI-compatible video editing and Blu-ray players, cameras and other devices can be displayed on screen.
This is useful for appropriate HDR productions since videos can be monitored while confirming the HDR information at the same time.
Superb Black Levels
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display provides a black level superior to older CRT displays. What's more, by ensuring accurate gradation precision afforded by liquid crystal displays, a higher black reproduction can be achieved compared with that of CRT displays and OLEDs, on which black defects are likely to occur in the shadow areas, thus helping to improve video production quality.
Integration with ARRI Camera Systems
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display has important features for cinema style applications as well.
The Camera Link-Up feature of the reference display allows seamless linking to the ARRI ALEXA SXT camera system, providing for increased flexibility on-set for camera assistants and DITs.
Camera Information Displays
When an ARRI Camera system is connected to the DP-V1710, the camera's metadata can be obtained, and its contents can be displayed. This means that camera set up and confidence checks during shooting can all be done on the reference display itself rather than on the camera's viewfinder or display. This allows checks without disturbing the operator and increases on set flexibility. (This feature is available when the 3G/HD-SDI format has been selected by ARRI Camera system.)
Camera Image Quality Link-Up
An image quality link-up function automatically switches the image quality of the display based on the camera's meta information. This function is established while the ARRI Camera system is connected to the DP-V1710. The fact that the image quality settings are linked automatically for the camera and for the display means that setting errors can be minimized.
Presetting by Cinema EOS System's Canon Log/Canon Log2/Canon Log3 and the ARRI Log C video display are also supported. Log C is preset to the main unit menu. So, all you have to do to check image quality is connect to the camera without having to go through the trouble of adding on any special LUTs.
On-Set LUT and CDL Functions
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display allows you to set multiple LUTs (8) for each picture mode, same as the DP-V2410 and DP-V2420.
As a result, users can select up to eight LUTs in one picture mode for improved convenience. In addition, presets from CDL1 to CDL15 and a CDL details setting screen have been added. Users can also change the name settings for CDL1 to CDL15.
Faithful Color Reproduction Supporting 4K Cinema and UHD 4K Broadcast Standards
Broadcast and Cinema Standards of ITU-R BT.2020 and ACES2065-1 Supported
The display has a Direct-type white LED backlight and IPS liquid crystal panel in order to achieve the high-image-quality performance that is optimally suited for the shooting locations. In addition to satisfying a multiple number of the latest broadcast standards such as ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C as well as the latest DCI-P3 digital cinema standard, it also meets the next-generation standards of ITU-R BT.2020 and ACESproxy, the transmission standards of ACES whose color management standard is advocated by AMPAS.
High Accuracy Uniformity
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display achieves the same level of high-accuracy uniformity as the DP-V3010, DP-V2410 and DP-V2420 reference displays. By incorporating a proprietary image processor developed for use in displays to enable fine-tuned adjustments, any color and luminance unevenness on the screen can be prevented and high-accuracy uniformity can be achieved.
Smooth and Accurate Gradation Characteristics for each RGB Color
The high-accuracy display processor enables accurate gradation displays.
Image Enhancement Functions
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display has an array of image functions that give users the ability to control and modify the display's features and customize the overall look.
The DP-V1710 features a panel with a 3840 x 2160 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It can display signals compliant with the digital cinema and high-definition TV broadcast standards on a dot-by-dot basis in exhaustive detail. It makes its three expanded display modes available for 2K or full-HD video productions as well. In this way, it can be used as a FHD/2K/4K display in a wide range of applications, and it contributes to improving the efficiency of 4K/full-HD video production workflows.
The DP-V1710 is equipped with three types of screen scaling functions, including the Canon Shape Tracing technology™ an original shape-tracing technology that helps to minimize artifacts on images scaled on the DP-V1710. Using the Canon Shape Tracing technology, the DP-V1710 detects the angles of hard edges and selects an appropriate interpolation to help provide smooth diagonal lines and optimal image rendering, further extending the display's application during location/studio shoots and within color-grading, DI, CGI, VFX and other post-production workflows.
Shooting Assistance Tools
2-Sample Interleave is supported. This technology transmits up to four sub-imagers (2K/HD) that are obtained by dividing a 4K signal into 2-pixel units and re-assembling these together to make a 4K display. This also differs from Square Division in that, since images that are slightly out of position are sent, the angle of view can be confirmed even on 2K/HD monitors by displaying one of four inputs.
2/4 Split-Screen Display Compatibility
In the 2 split-screen display mode, the picture mode can be set independently on displays A and B. And, in the 2 split-screen display/4 split screen display mode, display of the division lines can be switched on and off. The camera information can be displayed at only one location (i.e. one input).
The functions of the DP-V2410 UHD 4K Reference Display have been carried out to allow selection of enlargement ratios (4x, 8x) and display at arbitrary positions. And, the provision of zooming modes 1 to 3 means that enlargement ratio and display position can be preset, thus improving ease of use.
The DP-V1710 features a peaking function that enables users to check the focus state at a glance. With high-definition video productions, this helps with the focus adjustment to bring the subjects into focus.
The DP-V1710 features a mode in which the display's fan is shut down for a prescribed period of time during camera shooting*. This mode can be linked with professional-use cameras, such as the cameras in the Cinema EOS System, to shut down the fan during recording. It can be useful when the noise of the fan would disturb the atmosphere in a studio or other quiet shooting location.
Waveform Monitor and Vectorscope Functions
The DP-V1710 comes with waveform monitor and vectorscope functions. These are superimposed on the screen display. The signal level is displayed using the waveform monitor function (6 types: Y, Cr, Cb, R, G and B). The two color difference signals (Cb and Cr) are each displayed with "X axis/Y axis" using the vectorscope function.
A false color function assists in setting the camera's exposure by displaying the input image using colors that differ according to luminance level is also provided. This can make it easy to visually perceive the exposure status while overexposure (above 100% luminance level) is indicated in red and loss of dark detail (under 0% luminance level) is indicated in blue, for example.
This function saves the currently displayed image as an image file in the USB memory. Users can choose whether to capture only the video signals or include the marker, waveform monitor and other image auxiliary functions and OSD menus as well.
Frame Hold (pause function)
This function stops the image to be checked and displays it on the screen. It can also be used to capture the image shown on the screen as a photo.
Area markers, whose rectangle size, position, etc. can be set, have been added. They are used for checking the areas where the subtitles and duration of TV broadcasts are to be indicated. The conventional 16:9, 4:3 and other presets, the manual settings and other aspect ratio markers at a variety of different view angles can be displayed. Also incorporated are functions for displaying safety zone markers, center markers and grid markers.
When images are to be displayed, users can select white, gray or black as the color of the black bands in the image non-display areas which are displayed due to the differences in the view angle. This function is used to check the image quality at the boundaries of the image display and non-display areas.
Maintaining Consistency in Color Image Quality
In order to maintain consistent high image quality the DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display utilizes built-in auto-correct functions that consistently monitor color, brightness, and other parameters that keep the display at a high level of uniformity at all times. These functions include:
Automatic Luminance Correction System
The DP-V1710 comes with Canon's proprietary control system that is used to correct the fluctuations in luminance and help ensure accurate, stable performance over time.
Calibration without a PC
The DP-V1710 achieves the same high level of stability as the DP-V3010/DP-V2410.
In cases where color shifting or other problems have occurred due to the deterioration experienced over the years, accurate corrections can be made using the external sensor (CA-210/CA-310 from Konica Minolta) without having to use a PC.
Precise Color Adjustment Prior to Shipment
In order to achieve high color uniformity, each DP-V1710 undergoes a high-precision calibration process before shipping from the factory. External calibration allows users to maintain factory settings as well as make adjustments for specific display applications.
OSD Menus Tailored to Easy Use
While carrying over the proven operability of the DP-V2410 UHD 4K Reference Display, Canon has reduced the size of the OSD menu displays to the size that is optimally suited for the operation range. The information is easy to read yet does not really obstruct the display of the images on the screen.
Assignable Function Buttons
Specific functions can be registered to the function buttons in accordance with the intended applications. These functions can then be accessed immediately at the touch of a button.
Easy to Use Control Area
The control area with its function buttons factors in different scenarios for shooting at many different locations, and it is extremely easy to use. The buttons and jog dial are laid out in the same positions as they are on the DP-V2410 display. The labels and buttons on the front panel control area are illuminated to enable operation even in dark places.
If operations are to be performed at a location away from the main unit, users can connect the color grading system using the LAN connector or connect a color grading controller using the USB connector.
Equipped with Interfaces for Remote Operation
Serial/Parallel Remote Terminals to Enable Remote Control of the Display
Serial/parallel remote terminals are provided for remote control. This enables the operating situation at the shooting location to be confirmed by the tally lamp, and the display to be remotely controlled from a linked third-party grading system.
List of GPI Assignments
