The Flanders Scientific CM320TD features a 32in 10-bit 1920 x 1080 panel.
  • BM210: 21.5in native 1920 x 1080 resolution, CFE2 (custom LUT import), simultaneous monitoring of two inputs. Field monitor weighs 9lbs, 28W power consumption. Ships in June.

  • BM230: 23in, native 1920 x 1080 resolution, CFE2 (custom LUT Import), simultaneous monitoring of two inputs. Cost-effective editing monitoring that strikes a balance between performance and price. Ships in June

  • CM320TD: 32in, 10-bit panel with 1920 x1080 native resolution. CFE2 (custom LUT import), simultaneous monitoring of two inputs. Suited for all post-production applications, but also a capable field monitor with weight (21lbs) and power consumption (max 50W) on par with many much smaller monitors on the market. Ships in June.

Previewed at NAB, S-Log2 monitoring modes (S-Log2 Standard, S-Log2 Full) are now a standard feature on all FSI monitors. This adds to the growing list of log monitoring modes designed to provide viewers in production environments with a quick normalization of various log formats. Though not a replacement for proper post-production color correction, these monitoring modes are at the least a simple way to avoid the "why does this look so flat?" conversation with clients in production settings. Available as a free firmware update (version 9.51-1870) at FlandersScientific.com to all current FSI monitor owners.
