Posted on Jul 23, 2012 by Alex Fice
JVC’s new DT-X Series of portable ProHD LCD monitors come in three models with different I/O options and features. The basic DT-X71C model offers one HDMI and one composite video input, while the DT-X71H adds two HD/SD-SDI inputs and an HD/SD-SDI loop through output. The DT-X71F includes an additional HD/SD-SDI loop through output and one HDMI converted to SDI output. All three models include stereo audio input.
These new seven-inch AC/DC monitors offer 1024×600 resolution with a 160-degree viewing angle and can display 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals at a variety of frame rates.
Other features include an adjustable 16:9/4:3 display, dual three-colour tally lights, underscan and overscan, image flip, customer editable video title, Canon DSLR scale zoom-in, and safe mark display. The DT-X71F, the most feature-rich model in the series, also includes a waveform, vector scope, RGB histogram, red/blue peaking focus assist, zebra, false colour, blue only, internal colour bars, image rotation and 16-channel SDI (two-channel HDMI) audio meter.
Each monitor is powered via a four-pin XLR 12V DC connector with included AC adapter or an optional snap-on JVC BN-VF823 7.2V battery. DT-X71 Series monitors also ship with a cold shoe mounting adaptor and hood. When mounted to the GY-HM150, the DT-X71 serves as a full-size studio camera monitor.
The DT-X71C has a list price of £430, the DT-X71H is priced at £740, and the DT-X71F is priced at £1220. All models are now available.
