The Marshall OR-841-HDSDI Orchid 8.4" Portable Field Monitor is a rack mountable/camera top LCD boasting an unprecedented set of professional features, including HD-SDI inputs. With a resolution of 1024 x 768, along with both a high contrast ratio and brightness, the OR-841-HDSDI can easily verify focus in virtually all situations.
The LCD comes equipped with a wide variety of display functions designed to gives users ultimate control over the images they record. Features include a built-in waveform monitor with adjustable clip-level indicators, real-time color vectorscope, and 64-segment tri-color audio meters. The front panel includes a protective screen for field use as well as built in speaker for basic sound monitoring on set.
The built-in waveform monitor includes adjustable white and black clip level indicators. They can be displayed in various aspect ratios, positions, and transparency options. The waveform not only monitors luminance, but can also warn the user of out-of-range conditions such as overexposure or "blacker-than-black" errors with fully user-adjustable warning limits.
Real-Time Color Vectorscope
The built-in vectorscope allows users to monitor color gamut range in real time. It displays in full color and can also be displayed in various sizes, positions, and transparency options. The vectorscope has adjustable gain from 1x to 5x.
The clip guide function operates with both the waveform display and monochrome/color picture display. Both the upper and lower clip guide levels are user-adjustable in order to accurately display over-and-under exposures during different shooting conditions. For example, the upper clip guide limit may be set to 85 IRE and the lower limit to 10 IRE. With these settings, any exposures over the set limit of 85 IRE will display red on both the waveform and picture (if selected). The same will be true for blacks under 10 IRE.
It is important that LCD monitors match the color and gamma characteristics of a CRT monitor. To emulate CRT gamma, the non-linear curves are corrected by software algorithms. This process is complicated because the three non-linear colors (RGB) should be corrected simultaneously. The ORCHID gamma correction overcomes this problem and ensures correct matching between panels and channels.
Audio Level Meters
De-embeds and displays up to 16 channels of audio using sixteen 64-segment tri-color audio meters with user-adjustable reference levels. The audio level meters provide numerical indicators and headroom levels, as well as peak hold function. Audio channel loss warning prevents errors during monitoring.
Front and Rear Panel Audio Output
Monitor any two channels at once through the front audio output jack or rear line output jack.
Extensive Menu System
The extensive menu system features 9 user-assignable function keys, a rotary dial, and easy menu navigation making quick adjustments a breeze.
White balance adjustment is essential in order to render colors correctly. To display colors correctly, gray scale should maintain identical color temperature. The white balance for Orchid monitors defaults to D65 (6500K) so the user does not need to adjust white balance. LCD monitors have color-matching issues because white balance can be affected by a change in luminance level. The unique color management system solves this problem.
One Button Color Calibration
The ORCHID operating system includes an automatic white balance function that allows a "One Button" calibration procedure when used with a Konica Minolta CA-210 color analyzer. All ORCHID Series LCD panels are calibrated at the factory to ensure color conformity between screens.
