Canon Launches Its First 4K Monitor

Canon is well known manufacturer of cameras and lenses, but the company is trying to enter the display market with the launch of a 30-inch DP-V3010 monitor. It features an image engine developed by Canon, an RGB LED backlight system and an IPS LCD panel.

"The new DP-V3010 represents an exciting step for Canon that complements our existing 4K portfolio. We've listened carefully to the needs of the market throughout the development of the display to deliver an exceptional product suited to even the highest quality productions.

It offers incredible accuracy, reliability and flexibility and combined with our Cinema EOS cameras, provides an excellent input-to-output solution for use in a wide range of scenarios," said Canon's Europe director of professional marketing Kieran Magee.

The new DP-V3010 has 16:10 aspect ratio and a resolution of 4,096 x 2,560 pixels, enabling it to display true 4K resolution along with the support of various color standards such as DCI-P3, ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C and the Adobe RGB. The DP-V3010 will be available in Europe next year for £29,000.
