Canon DP-V2421 4K Reference Display
Available to order1-2 weeks delivery
The DP-V2421 4K Reference Display is Canon's flagship 24" reference display, offering versatile, high-luminance HDR functions. Designed for both on-set capture and post-production, this 4K display supports both SMPTE ST 2084 and the HLG (hybrid log-gamma) HDR standards. Its 12G-SDI ports streamline 4K60p video input, reducing the number of cables per signal from four to one.
When shooting with the Canon EOS C700/500/300 Mk II, the DP-V2421 can simplify your workflow by internally debayering the 4K raw signal and outputting it via a single 12-SDI cable. It supports both DCI and UHD 4K video at 10 bits, and supports cinema and broadcast frame rates. The DP-V2421 has a backlit IPS panel offering wide off-axis viewing, uniform brightness, and consistency with the rest of the Canon display line.
Canon Log/Log2/Log3 and ARRI Log C are all supported by the DP-V2421, with Log C preset in the display's main menu. The DP-V2421 can link to the metadata of select Canon Cinema EOS and ARRI cameras, offering "look" verification and the flexibility of choosing your camera settings through the larger display instead of the viewfinder.
A metal chassis helps the DP-V2421 4K display withstand the rigors of daily production. Ergonomic design features include an anti-tip stand, easily accessible function buttons on the front panel, and integrated carrying handles.
Note: The camera setup function is available when the SDI raw format has been selected in compatible EOS cameras, or when the 3G/HD-SDI format is selected in an ARRI ALEXA SXT.
Industry-Standard HDR Compatibility
The DP-V2421 4K Reference Display is compatible with HDR industry standards, fully covering both SMPTE ST 2084 and HLG ranges for accurate assessments of gradations and colors. In addition to this dual-gamma curve support, the DP-V2421 features improved black level luminance and shadow area gradations.
Dual HDR Monitoring Modes
Two HDR monitoring modes are offered to suit specific production needs:
Peak Luminance Priority mode: The maximum display luminance is controlled to match the brightness of the displayed contact.
Sustained Luminance mode: The display luminance remains constant and does not fluctuate according to the input, making this mode useful for sports and performance shoots where the luminance varies within a fixed camera angle.
Multiple HDR Support Functions
The DP-V2421 4K Reference Display includes HDR tools like split screen display of HDR and SDR signals, range compression display, clipped display, camera information display, and an HDR-compatible waveform monitor.
Internal 4K Raw Debayering / 4K Output via 12G-SDI and HDMI
Compatible with Canon EOS C700/500/300 Mk II cameras, the DP-V2421's internal debayering feature enables you to display the 4K raw signal using a single 12G-SDI cable. The DP-V2421 can also display 4K60p content from any 4K camera with a single HDMI cable if that camera supports a 4K60p output connection.
Cine-Style and Broadcast HDR Workflow Support
The DP-V2421's display capabilities and its size suit it for use both on a DIT cart for cine-style projects, and in a broadcast truck or editing suite for a director/client display or color grading.
Canon Cinema EOS and ARRI Camera Integration
The DP-V2421 display can link to the metadata output by a Canon C700/500/300 Mk II or ARRI ALEXA SXT camera, enabling you to check your image look and choose your camera settings via a larger display than that provided by the camera. Canon Log/Log2/Log3 and ARRI Log C can all be preset in the display, simplifying your LUT management.
Simplified Canon Cinema EOS Workflow
Internal 4K raw image debayering and signal output via a single 12G/HD-SDI cable enables the DP-V2421 to offer a 4K workflow with minimal cabling, and without the need for an external debayering unit. Internal debayering is offered for Canon EOS C700/500/300 Mk II cameras.
On Set LUT and CDL Functions
Like its predecessor, the Canon DP-V2410, the DP-V2421 display can connect via LAN to select color grading systems like Pomfort LiveGrade. When used with a Canon EOS C700/500/300 Mk II camera, you can employ LUTs and CDLs while your 4K raw signal is being debayered.
Accurate 4K Cinema and UHD 4K Color Reproduction
The DP-V2421 display supports multiple cinema and broadcast standards like ITU-R BT.709, EBU, SMPTE-C, DCI-P3, ITU-R BT.2020, and ACESproxy. An RGB LED backlight and IPS LCD panel provide high-quality color reproduction suited for on-set or post-production display.
Image Enhancement Functions
A full-array RGB backlight features tri-level adjustments for crisp video playback, and Canon Shape Tracing enables the DP-V2421 to minimize artifacts on scaled images.
Shot Assistance Features
Image display features include two-sample interleaving, 2/4 split-screen display, three-mode zooming with 4x/8x ratio and position selection, peaking to aid focusing, false color, waveform, and vectorscope functions. Additional monitor functions include fan shutdown mode, image freeze capture, image frame hold, aspect ratio and safety markers, and selectable gray/white/black band areas.
Consistent Image Quality Maintenance
The DP-V2421's auto-correct system monitors color, brightness, and additional parameters, ensuring a high degree of uniformity over time. If needed, accurate corrections may be made to the display without a PC by using a separately available CA-210/CA-310 external sensor from Konica Minolta.
OSD Menus, Assignable Buttons, and LAN/USB Ports
OSD menus have been reduced in size from those on the DP-V2410, and can be repositioned for DCI 4K and UHD 4K use. The DP-V2421 4K Reference Display also features assignable function buttons, an easy-to-use illuminated control area, and LAN and USB ports for connecting to a color-grading system.
