4K client monitor ?
on Apr 12, 2016 at 3:08:06 pm

Need to get a new big screen for client monitor etc and wondering if any of you are using 4K monitors for this? Is the upscaling from 1080 decent? Trying to future proof a bit, however at this point a big majority of my work is 1080.

What is the watching distance for the client? No point going to 4k unless the client is close enough and the screen is big enough.

That said a 4k monitors are now relatively cheap and will last a lot longer than an HD. Personally I am happy with my LG 85" 4k (not the OLED). The viewing distance is small enough and the screen big enough to appreciate the extra resolution. Also the LG has a lot of ability to turn all the pesky image processing off and get a relatively unprocessed image. It also has advanced settings where gamma can be manipulated.

Any tips for getting a better image out of the LG? I just picked up the 60" for clients - obviously I already turned off the true motion stuff.

Were using a Sony XBR 55" 4K that upscales 1080 decent.
Using it with the Avid DNxIO as well as BMD VideoHUB.
Not bad for a $1100 CAD display.

Eric what model of XBR are you using?

Also wondering how the 4K monitors handle interlacing. Need to see bad/incorrect field order.

Thanks

I'm using the XBR 65" 850C and love it. Of course the 850D is now out and less money...

BTW I had one of the high end LG's (not OLED) and returned it for the Sony due to color issues including pixelating skin tones

It was at a Vegas premiere that I resolved to become an avid FCPX user.

Thinking of pulling the trigger on a 55 810c. However that one does not have Triluminos. Do you use that feature? Thinking that would not be REC 709?

I would go for the 850C or higher - they have Triluminos, X-1 and support Rec709, Rec.2020 and DCP plus HDR

I set up a user profile which you can apply to all inputs. LG have a setting in advanced for gamma. It also has a black level setting which tries to pull blacks down to true black. On a cut from black to a shot it looks like a fade up which is really annoying but that can be changed in picture options to high instead of low.

Also all the noise reduction & edge enhancement, dynamic contrast etc can all be turned off. Sure it flattens the picture but it ends up being a very honest image.

On weird one was that the screen was slightly cropping. I found if you turn Real Cinema on it allows the aspect to be set to "just scan" which shows correct edges not cropped in for broadcast safe. I can't see it affects any other setting like displaying interlace errors.
