Canon's Latest Additions to 4K/UHD Display Lineup Further Empowers Professionals with 24-inch High-Luminance HDR Model and Industry-First 17-inch QFHD Model  

SINGAPORE, 13 September 2016 – Canon today announced the launch of two new professional 4K displays developed in response to 4K content-creation requirements: The DP-V2420, a 24 inch high-luminance reference display ideal for High Dynamic Range (HDR1) footage and the DP-V1710, an industry-first2 17 inch 3840 x 2160 display ideal for use in broadcasting vans and studios. Both 4K displays feature Canon-developed image-processing engine, a proprietary backlight system and an IPS LCD panel, which combined to deliver excellent colour reproduction and high-resolution, high-contrast imaging performance.

The Canon DP-V2420 supports HDR standards and display methods3 increasingly used for next-generation video production. It is also capable of high luminance and black luminance performance necessary for screening HDR content. Canon's DP-V2420 display qualifies as a Dolby Vision mastering monitor and complies with the ITU-R BT.2100-0 HDR standard which specifies a peak luminance 1000cd/m2 and a minimum luminance 0.005cd/m2. Permitting review and confirmation of high-quality 4K images, the display's expanded dynamic range greatly increases colour expression and the contrast between the light and dark areas of an image to achieve luminance expression close to that of the human eye while also supporting the expression of natural colors and a sense of three-dimensionality.

The DP-V1710 is the industry's first 17 inch professional model 3840 x 2160 display, which can be mounted on 19 inch racks that are commonplace in broadcast studio sub control rooms and broadcasting vans. Designed in a compact size, the DP-V1710 is easily portable during on-location shooting or for use in broadcasting vans with space constraints. Additionally, supporting HDR standards and display methods, the DP-V1710 delivers a level of black luminance performance demanded for broadcasting, supporting a wide range of users who create Full HD, 4K, and HDR content.

Pricing and availability
The DP-V2420 and DP-V1710 will go on sale in early November 2016 and late February 2017, respectively. Pricing is available upon request.
