As we wrap up 2021, we are pleased to share Canon’s introduction of its DP-V1830 UHD 4K Reference Display, a video production monitor featuring a wide viewing angle, a bright, peak 1000 cd/m2 3840 x 2160 panel, and advanced HDR functions including improved local backlight control. Designed for studio and location work, the DP-V1830 is the first 18" UHD 4K display to join the ranks of existing 24, 30, and 31" Canon reference displays.
HDR Imagery/SDR Split Screen
A high brightness level is key to HDR monitoring, and the DP-V1830 delivers with a 1,000 cd/m2 level consistent with Dolby Vision, BT.2100, and EBU TECH3320 standards. All-black levels of 0.001 cd/m2 and a 1,000,000:1 contrast level help to produce accurate imagery with true blacks.
Use the DP-V1830 to display side-by-side SDR and HDR views simultaneously and to view HDR-critical tools like clipping, range compression, waveform, and camera metadata information onscreen. You can even store your preferred values to a function button for one-touch recall comparisons.
Revved-up hardware enables the DP-V1830 to offer precision backlight control with optimal contrast between dark and light areas, improving your broadcast or cine-style capture of night scenes and fireworks.
Wide Viewing Angles
Thanks to a new optical design, this 18" monitor features a wide viewing angle that offers consistent brightness and color even when viewed from different angles—ideal for production trucks or other setups where users are monitoring more than one display simultaneously or when multiple crew members need to view the same screen.
Natural Color/Wide Color Gamut
A wide color gamut enables the DP-V1830 to reproduce more natural-looking, vivid color in tandem with your cine-style cameras and lenses. Compatibility with BT.709, BT.2020, DCI-P3, and ACESproxy standards ensures accurate color management throughout your production and post-production workflow.
In addition to the SDR/HDR split-screen and luminance functions, the DP-V1830 offers HDR-compatible waveform monitoring, false color, pixel value checking, and a new out-of-gamut display to help you obtain the most accurate imagery. Compatible standards include ARRI Log C and Log C-HDR, Canon Log, Log2, and Log 3, and Panasonic VariCam.
This 18" monitor’s 3840 x 2160 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio are shared with Canon’s DP-V1710, DP-V1711, and additional monitors, making it easy to integrate into your existing workflow. DCI 4K images are displayed scaled down or with cut sides as you prefer, and 2K/HD images can be enlarged for display. As with existing Canon models, you can fine-tune this durable, long-lasting display to eliminate uneven color and brightness.
The DP-V1830 offers front joystick and push-button controls, eight user-assignable function buttons, and a 19" rack-mountable form. Its interfaces include an HDMI input, an audio output, LAN and GPI ports, and four SDI input/output ports plus an additional SDI output.
