3Gbps SDI, DCI P3 support, and more at an incredible price: just $4,995
(Suwanee, Georgia--March 21, 2011) Flanders Scientific is pleased to announce the launch of their new top of the line monitor, the LM-2461W. The LM-2461W features a 1920x1200 resolution LCD panel with 10 bit color depth (1.073 Billion Colors) and 3Gbps SDI (SMPTE 425M-AB) Inputs as standard equipment. The LM-2461W also features FSI's advanced Color Fidelity Engine allowing users to instantly switch between Rec 709, SMPTE C, EBU, and Native Wide Gamut modes and now also adds support for DCI-P3. Best of all, Flanders Scientific has kept the LM-2461W priced at just $4,995, the same as the outgoing LM-2460W that it will replace.
LM-2461W Product Highlights:
3Gbps SDI Inputs standard
What was a $1,995 option on the LM-2460W is now included at no additional cost on the LM-2461W. 3Gbps/HD/SD-SDI, Component, Composite, and DVI-I Inputs are all provided as standard equipment.
DCI P3 Support
The LM-2461W has added a DCI P3 mode in addition to the Rec 709, SMPTE C, EBU, and Native Wide Gamut modes found on previous models.
Level B SMPTE 425M Support
Coming as a firmware update later this year to the LM-2461W will be Level B 3Gbps SDI support in addition to the already supported Level A image mapping 3Gbps SDI.
Remote Alarm Monitoring
Also coming as a firmware update later this year to the LM-2461W will be a new Remote Alarm Monitoring software option. Stay tuned for details on this exciting new capability.
Extraordinary Color Accuracy
At FSI we have long been advocates of the concept that a monitor's calibration can only be as good as the measuring device used. In light of this FSI has transitioned to the Minolta CS-2000 Spectroradiometer as our primary reference instrument allowing us to further dial in LUT and alignment tolerances for our most accurate monitor to date.
Shared panel technology with LM-2460W monitors
By utilizing the same fundamental panel technology found in all LM-2460W monitors these units can be precisely matched and will exhibit the same basic viewing characteristics allowing these monitors to be used side by side at facilities that already are heavily invested in LM-2460Ws.
The LM-2461W will start shipping on Wednesday of this week (3/23) and may now be ordered from http://www.ShopFSI.com . If you are attending NAB this year make sure to stop by our booth, SL10010, to check out this extraordinary new monitor.
