The DP-V2410 – 24-inch 4K Reference Display
The new DP-V2410 has been engineered for use on-set or on-location in both broadcast and cinema productions, to provide accurate and reliable output of 4K content, facilitating live shooting for quality control, focusing and exposure confirmation, as well as on-set colour management and grading.

Sitting alongside the existing DP-V3010 in Canon’s 4K reference display range, the DP-V2410 delivers stunning 4K 4096 x 2160 resolution with astounding accuracy in colour reproduction. Thanks to a new High Dynamic Range Mode, the display makes it easy to see both extreme highlights and shadow detail simultaneously, providing a more natural and realistic image. The DP-V2410 has also been optimised to support the DCI-P3 cinema standard, the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard and ACES Proxy (ACES Ver. 1.0). Furthermore, a new IPS panel with RGB LED backlight system enables a 2000:1contrast ratio, whilst Canon’s automatic colour and brightness correction system ensures consistent image quality, colour and luminance, over time.

Equipped with both 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI interfaces, plus a built-in debayer, the DP-V2410 is able to show native 4K RAW footage direct from compatible Cinema EOS cameras, saving costs on an external debayer unit. In addition, an image quality link-up function automatically synchronises the colour settings from compatible Canon cameras, preventing settings errors.

A range of on-set functions enable quick and easy content review, including a 4K capable Wave Form Monitor and Vectorscope which confirm signal data. Additionally the display features multiple 1D/3D-LUTs for convenient monitoring and an audio level meter for accurate sound recording.

The DP-V2410 is encased in a sleek and robust body and incorporates a sturdy handle. Weighing just 12kg, it’s easy transport around sets, and is equipped with a 24 volt DC power unit to work throughout the day.

The DP-V2410 is expected to be available in Europe in Q4 2015.

A new generation of 4K video capture – the EOS C300 Mark II and XC10
The EOS C300 Mark II is a new highly durable Cinema EOS 4K video camera, which enables filmmakers and broadcasters to record stunning 4K video with 15-stops of dynamic range at high bitrates to internal CFast 2.0™¹ cards.

Created for aspiring filmmakers, or ideal for use as a B camera in professional productions, the XC10 is a new compact digital camcorder that offers the versatility to capture both high bit rate 4K video and 12MP stills, in one single device.
