Canon will enter the 4K video production display market next year with the introduction of the DP-V3010, a 30-inch display for professional use.

Designed to complement Canon’s Cinema EOS System of cameras and lenses, the new DP-V3010 features an image engine developed by Canon for display use, along with a proprietary RGB LED backlight system and an IPS LCD panel, to achieve faithful colour reproduction, high resolution and high contrast. The 16:10 screen has a resolution of 4,096 x 2,560 pixels, enabling it to display true DCI 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160 pixels) without having to perform any enlarging or reducing processes.  It supports not only the colour gamut prescribed by DCI for digital cinema, but also the colour gamut specifications of such broadcast standards as ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C, as well as the Adobe RGB colour gamut.

The DP-V3010 will be available in Australia via selected professional motion imaging dealers from March 2014 with pricing set at dealer discretion.
