Marshall Electronics V-LCD70MD overview

  • 1Description

The Marshall Electronics V-LCD70MD-3G 7" On-Camera Monitor with HDMI and 3G-SDI Input Module is a top-quality camera monitor with superior internal components and an advanced set of focus, exposure, and sound-assist tools. The display is a high-resolution, high-contrast, high-brightness display and is polycarbonate-coated for scratch resistant protection. It's LED backlit for additional brightness and it is equipped with IPS technology allowing an enhanced viewing angle from farther and farther away. The operating system is icon-driven.

Connections consist of native HDMI input and output and, via a pre-installed input module, an SDI input with a loop-through output linked to it. The HDMI input gives you 8 channels of de-embedded audio to pick up and monitor and the SDI input 16 channels. You can monitor the audio on-screen on a dual-bar Waveform display or/and with headphones via the monitor's headphone output. With headphones, you can monitor any pair from the available channels.

For mounting, a 1/4"-20 screw-hole is available on every side of the monitor. And for power, a power supply comes included and additionally any of a very long list of batteries can optionally be attached. (Please see the Specifications tab for the full list. Battery adapters are sold separately.)

DSLR Ratio Adjustment
Lets you scale video that does not completely fill the monitor's screen when connected by HDMI in "Record" mode on certain Canon DSLRs. You can scale DSLR video output, fill the screen, and eliminate black pillar bars with a variety of options to choose select, from Normal, to 3:2, 16:9, and Full Screen. DSLR Ratio Adjustment is programmable to one of the four user-configurable buttons on the front panel.
Waveform and Audio Clip Guide
The monitor incorporates both a Waveform display and Stereo Audio bars. These may be displayed separately or together in any one of the four corners of the monitor. The Stereo Audio is de-embedded from either the input.
Zebra Clip Guide
The Zebra function visually filters parts of images under a Lower Threshold or over an Upper Threshold. Data on either side of the filters can be displayed with a custom color. Zebra can also be inverted to filter the area between the Upper and Lower Threshold. The color selected for the Lower Threshold acts as the color for all inverted Zebra data.
Input Crop with Auto Scaling
The Input Crop function selects the area of active video that you would like shown on the image display. Select the desired Input by accessing the Adjust option on the screen.
Custom Pixel-to-Pixel Panning
Lets you select a custom Pixel-to-Pixel zone and use the COLOR knob to move your selection LEFT and RIGHT and the CONTRAST knob to move UP or DOWN. The SELECT button locks in your selection.
False Color
Helps set camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values.
Helps get the sharpest possible picture. When activated, the internal processor will display a colored highlight on the screen where sharp edges appear. When the camera operator adjusts ("racks") the focus control / camera lens, different parts of the image will have these colored highlights. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus. Final focus is achieved by racking the camera lens focus control back and forth until the desired portion of the image has the colored highlights.
Adjustable Screen Markers
A variety of screen markers in 4:3, 16:9, and full screen modes allow accurate monitoring of the different aspect ratios used in broadcast environments. User Markers allow for custom aspect ratio, cropping framing, now with a choice of four colors and variable width lines.
6 Custom Configuration Presets
Six User Setting Presets allow the user to save six system configuration files for later recall when needed. These configuration files will save 38 different parameters that can be adjusted by the user.
User-Definable Function Buttons
Four user-definable function buttons on the front-panel allow quick access to numerous settings and features including focus-assist, false color filter, aspect ratio, screen markers, monochrome mode, color temperature, delay mode, and more.
Stereo Headphone Output
You can monitor 8 channels of audio from the HDMI input and 16 channels from the SDI input.

    Marshall Electronics V-LCD70MD reviews

    V-LCD70MD-3G 7" On-Camera Monitor with HDMI and 3G-SDI Input Module is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little monitor This is a clean little monitor. I was quite pleased with picture quality both with my DSLR and HD video cameras. Having the option of either HDMI or SDI is a real plus if you have multiple types of cameras. I like the fact that you can program certain buttons for your use, like the waveform on/off. Another great feature is 1/4-20 mouting points on all four sides making it easier to mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor! You get what you pay for. I've been using this monitor via SDI with my BMCC. I've used cheaper monitors in the past but this is by far the best looking monitor I've used in a while. The scopes are great, the menu is very friendly and everything is very easily customizable. You can set your crop very easily and toggle on a number of functions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional Quality Monitor This is a quality monitor that goes a long way to ensure accuracy with focusing, exposure, etc. It's solidly constructed. The battery mounts fine without hassle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Cool, But... Just starting to use this monitor on my Panny 160A. It's great to have the 7 screen size. Smaller one would not have nearly as much benefit. Got the SDI in and out module so I can free up the HDMI port on the camera for other uses. SDI uses BNC connector, which locks into position. Image very clear, nice to have the wave form monitor and the audio level meter. Not using false color yet. Pixel-to-pixel very cool way to zoom in on image for better focus. Position of WFM on screen and transparency are adjustable within the four corners of the screen. Light weight, easy to mount on camera with 1/4-20 holes on each edge. Plastic case is quite sturdy and should hold up well under industrial use. Mounting hardware not included. I bought the 4 arm, and works perfectly for 1/4-20 screw holes in the Panny camera handle. Instructions very poor, only shows diagrams for menu functions, no other info. Had to call tech support, and had a hard time finding the phone number on the web site. Tech support knows their stuff, and was very helpful and patient. Now that he explained a few things to me, I totally get it. Can navigate through menus easily. Four user function keys are really helpful when you're saturated with activities while shooting and want a quick change so you don't lose your train of thought or attention on the shoot. When you get a good monitor, you'll learn that you can't do without it. Compared to the 3 LCD on my camera, this is an amazing addition. (Plus, it looks really cool on your camera.) Chews up batteries. Sony QM91 lasts about 2 hours, but not exactly sure because there's no battery indicator on this model. Indeed, there's no battery indicator on any model, if I understood tech support correctly. Yet, the unit runs on batteries, and you have your choice of battery plate to mount your battery. So, there's no way to check your battery level. Just guess work. That bothers me, because I want to know where my equipment is at all times. No battery indicator means I'll have to have several batteries and switch them out after an hour, say, to be sure I'm ok. These batteries take forever to charge, so I'll need multiple chargers and batteries, because the monitor chews them up faster than they recharge. There is an external power recepticle on the edge of the unit, which requires 12 volts, but you'll have to figure out how to attach a battery pack to the monitor so you can shoot a bit longer. No room on the camera to stick on a battery pack, and the back of the monitor is taken up by the SDI module and the battery plate for the Sony batteries. I'm thinking the rechargeable battery packs are the way to go. Haven't figured out how to get these battery packs attached to the monitor, though. I just can't get over the omission of the battery life indicator. What were they thinking? Am I missing something here? Not meaning to rant on this, but it just bothers me...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good monitor with some bad flaws The monitor is bright, the color is accurate. Honestly, I want to love this monitor, but there are three big problems. 1) There are 1/4 20 mounts on each side of the monitor. Awesome! Except that the body of the monitor is plastic. Any pressure on the monitor and SNAP. Goodbye mount and a huge chunk of the monitor's casing. 2) The power input is very loose. Plugging in the cable, we have to either tape it to the body or wrap the cable around the monitor a couple times to get the plug to stay in the hole. There is zero tension to keep it there. For a field monitor, this kills it. This is the main reason for my two star rating. 3) The HDMI feed is very soft, and it is something about what the monitor does with the information, because we've input HDMI and SDI from the same source, and the HDMI is significantly softer. Luckily we are almost exclusively SDI now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Monitor Loaded with features, great picture quality. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Solid Solid 7 monitor. No complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super clear and super light! This monitor is just awesome! It's very light so you can attach it to any shoulder rig. And, the best feature is its sharpness. Also, the tools it provides, licke false color, focus peaking,etc, are great!!! A must have... Maybe is a little bit pricey but I haven't compare it to others less expensive monitors. But, if the quality is better, it's worth the investment since this is the most important aspect of any shooting.
