The Marshall Electronics 7" Field / Camera-Top LCD Monitor (Panasonic) has an integrated HDMI loop-through, which allows a user to pass through an HDMI video input to another monitor for a second user e.g. a client, director, focus puller or crew/talent member on-location. By splitting the signal, the built-in HDMI loop-through eliminates the need for separate HDMI splitters and additional power sources.
The monitor delivers high-quality images at a resolution up to 800 x 480 pixels and features a luminance of 800cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 800:1 to produce sharper images by displaying the finer elements of a picture.
Equipped with pixel-to-pixel mode, the Field / Camera-Top LCD Monitor displays images in their native resolution by avoiding the internal scaling function. With aspect ratio settings, you can precisely monitor different aspect ratios in 15:9, 16:9 and 4:3 modes.
DSLR ratio adjustment allows you to scale the video output and fill the monitor's screen, thereby eliminating black pillars. The display provides you with various options such as Normal, 3:2, 16:9 and Full screen and the ratio adjustment feature can be programmed to one of the front panel's four-button presets for quick access.
With RGB bias and gain function, the LCD monitor allows for fine-tuning of color balance levels and facilitates color matching with other types of monitors. False color filter helps set the camera exposure and peaking filter assists the user in focusing and obtaining the sharpest picture. Other features of the 7" Field / Camera-Top LCD Monitor include adjustable backlight and markers, HDMI auto color space and ratio detect, manual gamma adjustment, image flip and RGB check field / field detect. The unit has rugged metal front panel and 4 user-configurable buttons that provide fast access to various settings and functions.
An optical grade polycarbonate screen protection ensures that the Camera-Top LCD has a scratch-proof screen. The display unit includes a user-replaceable battery Adapter - AB (Anton/Bauer), 1/4"-20 mounting on all sides, 4-pin XLR power jack and a robust power switch.
