Marshall Electronics' OR-701A 7" Audio/Video Rack Mount LCD Monitor brings a new take to the ORCHID series of rackmountable studio monitors, adding two built-in stereo speakers to an already full set of professional features. The front-panel, full-range speakers and 64-segment on-screen audio meters provide sophisticated levels of audio monitoring to your production or post-production workflow.
Of course such thoroughness comes second nature to Marshall, starting with the OR-701A's bright 800 x 480 display and its myriad of user-assignable function keys, on-screen markers, and image diagnostic tools. A real-time waveform and vectorscope help determine the exact brightness and color of your scene for spot-on exposures, while dual HD-SDI inputs, XLR outputs, and an empty option slot for future connectivity add further flexibility to monitoring in control rooms, media duplication facilities, and remote OB vans.
High Resolution 7" Widescreen Panel
The OR-701A features an all-digital TFT-MegaPixel active matrix LCD system. The LCD panel features a nominal brightness of 350 cd/m² and a contrast ratio of 400:1, making the display ideal in a variety of environments and lighting conditions.
The built-in Waveform Monitor (which includes adjustable White and Black clip level indicators) can be displayed in various aspect ratios, positions, and transparency options. The Waveform Monitor not only monitors luminance, but can also warn the user for 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 & Rear Panel Audio Output
Monitor any two channels at once through the front audio output jack or rear line output jack.
Extensive Menu System
11 user-assignable function keys
4 user-assignable rotary encoders

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. Our 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.
