Does this monitor have anamorphic de squeeze?

Does this monitor have anamorphic de squeeze?
Asked by: Robert
Supports several formats and resolutions that are ideally suited for anamorphic lenses and aspect ratios. When shooting anamorphic the image you are monitoring is an "unsqueezed" preview of what's actually being recorded.

Can this monitor accept a 4K signal?

Can this monitor accept a 4K signal?
Asked by: Jim
I don't believe it does. I've only ever used it 4K cameras that output 1080p (FS7, F55). I've had great success with their support - perhaps contact them directly in LA: [email protected]

question

How is the screen under sunlight, is it reflective? If I have the i1display pro, can I use it for calibration? Is there software comes with it? Thank you.
Asked by: Waynes world
In sun, you need a sunshade. It is accurate out of the box. But for camera calibration, we would suggest a monitor that can be calibrated. There is no separate software that we are aware of.
