Marshall Electronics is a leading manufacturer of professional LCD monitors for Broadcast, Studio, and Television production. At IBC 2011 in Amsterdam, they unveiled the world’s first autostereoscopic 3D (glasses-free) 7-inch camera-top monitor. The ORCHID OR-70-3D lightweight 3D monitor does not require passive or active glasses and can be used as a camera viewfinder or portable 3D production display. For over 8 years, Marshall’s range of products has been available in UK through Cache Media Limited.
The OR-70-3D is the latest addition to Marshall Electronics’ expanding line-up of 3D monitoring solutions. Last year, Marshall introduced the robust and highly-praised 3D-241-HDSDI 24-inch stereoscopic 3D LCD monitor, which is currently being used on a number of high-budget 3D projects around the world.
“Marshall continues to support the growth and expansion of global 3D production” said Nathan Mordukhay, VP of Sales & Marketing. “The OR-70-3D is now the most versatile and technologically advanced 3D monitoring solution available to filmmakers and content producers.”
With parallax barrier and lenticular hybrid technology, the 7-inch Marshall 3D monitor provides superior 3D images with 1600 x 600 screen resolution. For precision 3D calibration, this 3D monitor provides dual real-time Waveform and Vectorscope, along with various 3D analysis features such as Check Box, Difference, Blending, Compare and more. Integrated mux and independent loop-through eliminate the requirement of an additional external converter. Delay-compensated horizontal mirror flip supports both channels respectively. Like most portable Marshall Monitors, this unit also supports large battery adapters and 1/4″-20 mounting for mobility and flexibility.
The Compare Box is a new and innovative feature for 3D calibration. This handy onscreen tool compares a specific region of both channels with easy-to-read graphs for Y, R, G, B with numeric display. Compare Box is a must-have feature for precision 3D camera alignment.
Another important feature of the Marshall 7-inch 3D monitor is Check Box, which provides a quilted layout of both left and right channels for depth check, channel difference and more. The size of the box can be adjusted using the front panel rotary encoder.
The Emboss (Alpha-Channel View) is a full frame Embossed or Luminance Difference View which shows the difference between Left Eye and Right Eye.
The new horizontal H marker provides a ruler for 3D depth control. The position and space between lines can be adjusted using the front panel rotary encoder.
The OR-70-3D will be available in UK through Cache Media, at the end of October 2011.
