> AccuScene will be showing its new, 2 inch, progressive, 1280 x 720 (in
> 16:9), 24 bit color, portable Personal Monitor for HD cameras at NAB.
> We believe this offers a solution to many of the separate problems
> discussed on the HD list:-
> 1)      Colorimetry; the monitor is illuminated by LED's, offering a
> much longer and more stable life than CRT's and lamps, plus a wider
> color gamut that encompasses the full range of colors available from
> film stock. The gamut can be adjusted to taste by the user (we offer
> full control over Gamma curves and 3D arbitrary input to output color
> space transforms by using a pc based GUI and then downloading to the
> monitor via a serial cable). Simpler controls, via pull down menus on
> the unit itself, are available for on-set changes.
> 2)      Portability - the hand held display/optics section weighs only
> 1.7lbs. This is on the end of a cable that can be as long as 4 metres
> from the control/interface box.
> 3)      Clarity - the resolution of the display is about the same as a
> 20 inch broadcast monitor, with no smearing, virtually no image
> artefacts and less than 2 frames of image processing latency. We have
> proved to our own satisfaction that the image is suitable for accurately
> judging focus.
> 4)      Daylight viewing - since the monitor is brought to the eye and
> has a rubber eyecup there is no issue with external incident light
> affecting the perceived color, brightness or contrast.
> 5)      Progressive display - the unit will accept all common input
> field/frame speeds in interlaced, segmented frame or progressive modes -
> 23.98; 24; 25; 29.97; 30; 50; 59.94 and 60 psf. The first action of the
> interface unit, if necessary, is to de-interlace or de-segment the
> fields. Thereafter it displays progressively
> We are confident this display technology will be a significant step
> forward for HD camera users.
