In addition to the just announced Canon C300 Mark II and XC10 4K cameras, Canon also announced its next generation of 4K reference display – the DP-V2410, a robust 24 inch reference monitor for on-set or on-location monitoring for the broadcast industry and cinema productions.
The new DP-V2410 delivers outstanding true 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution with stunning colour accuracy and tonality reproduction to aid Cinema EOS Camera 4K workflows and on-set monitoring. Housed in a robust and solid metal frame, the DP-V2410 is 24-inches diagonally and weighs in at approximately 26lbs (around 12 kg). The display features a 17:9 aspect ration with a 10-bit IPS RGB LED (In-Plane Switching) panel with accurate DCI-P3 colour reproduction and a 2000:1 contrast ratio.
In addition, to address the latest developments in digital acquisition and exhibition, the DP-V2410 is also capable of HDR support and internal debayering for RAW 4K video, specifically that of Canon’s newly announced EOS C300 Mark II 4K camera. This is a great cost-saving feature that a lot of production companies and post-houses will embrace as it does not require a debayering unit. The new BT.2020 colour space is also supported, which offers a greater reproduction of colour than the current broadcast standard REC.709. Furthermore, Canon’s automatic colour and brightness correction system ensures consistent image quality, colour and luminance, over time.
Additional monitoring features include a 4K capable Wave Form Monitor and a Vectorscope. The display also features multiple 1D/3D-LUTs for convenient monitoring and an audio level meter for accurate sound recording.

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 8 April 2015 – Canon today announces its next generation of input-to-output solutions for 4K production workflows. The range includes the DP-V2410, a robust 24-inch 4K reference display, and two new 4K camcorders – the EOS C300 Mark II, a 4K Cinema EOS camera and the XC10, a compact, lightweight 4K video and digital stills camera for aspiring filmmakers.
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.
