Canon Announces 18-inch 4K/HDR Professional Display which Delivers Superior Image Quality Performance
The DP-V1830 features high image quality and accuracy, improved rendition of blacks, wider colour gamut and wider viewing angles
SINGAPORE, 1 December 2021 — Canon announced today the launch of the DP-V1830 4K professional display.
The DP-V1830 features improved core components which includes a high-image-quality display engine, revamped high-resolution algorithms, panels and backlighting system—all of which deliver a significant increase in image quality performance. While satisfying HDR standards1, the display features a compact and lightweight 18-inch body that is ideal for use in confined spaces including broadcast relay vans and sub-control rooms. Through these improvements, along with the versatile 4K high-image-quality performance demanded by professionals in the industry, Canon helps to facilitate an efficient workflow in a wide variety of production environments.
Achieving the industry standard maximum illuminance of 1,000 cd/m2 for white luminance, as well as a significantly improved high-image-quality engine, the display offers more precise control over backlight illumination, improving image quality especially in high-contrast areas between light and dark areas. With these improvements, the ability to express blacks is enhanced. This is a vital part of broadcast and video production, where dark areas and colour gradations can be accurately represented. As a result, high contrast areas between black and brilliant colours can both be displayed accurately, such as scenarios of fireworks against the night sky.
The DP-V1830 realizes a wide colour gamut by utilizing a backlighting system developed in-house by Canon that maximizes the performance of LED, including aspects such as colour and luminance, faithfully recreating the wide colour gamut required by ITU-R BT.20202 recommendations. With Canon’s proprietary optical configuration that helps mitigate luminance and colour variations, the angle of view for the display is wide enough to deliver accurate images when several people are viewing the monitor at the same time.
With an 18-inch display and high-luminosity 4K/HDR functionality, the DP-V1830 chassis still maintains a thin width and weighs just approximately 7.5kg. The display can also be installed on 19-inch racks3 compatible with EIA standards4, enabling use in existing broadcast and video production workplaces such as broadcast relay vehicles and sub-control rooms, as well as easy transportation to on-location work sites.
