Canon DP-V2421 Overview
The DP-V2421 4K Reference Display is Canon‘s flagship 24″ reference display, offering versatile, high-luminance HDR functions. Designed for both on-set capture and post-production, this 4K display supports both SMPTE ST 2084 and the HLG (hybrid log-gamma) HDR standards. Its 12G-SDI ports streamline 4K60p video input, reducing the number of cables per signal from four to one.
When shooting with the Canon EOS C700/500/300 Mk II, the DP-V2421 can simplify your workflow by internally debayering the 4K raw signal and outputting it via a single 12-SDI cable. It supports both DCI and UHD 4K video at 10 bits, and supports cinema and broadcast frame rates. The DP-V2421 has a backlit IPS panel offering wide off-axis viewing, uniform brightness, and consistency with the rest of the Canon display line.
Canon Log/Log2/Log3 and ARRI Log C are all supported by the DP-V2421, with Log C preset in the display’s main menu. The DP-V2421 can link to the metadata of select Canon Cinema EOS and ARRI cameras, offering “look” verification and the flexibility of choosing your camera settings through the larger display instead of the viewfinder.
A metal chassis helps the DP-V2421 4K display withstand the rigors of daily production. Ergonomic design features include an anti-tip stand, easily accessible function buttons on the front panel, and integrated carrying handles.
Industry-Standard HDR Compatibility
Dual HDR Monitoring Modes
Two HDR monitoring modes are offered to suit specific production needs:
- Peak Luminance Priority mode: The maximum display luminance is controlled to match the brightness of the displayed contact.
- Sustained Luminance mode: The display luminance remains constant and does not fluctuate according to the input, making this mode useful for sports and performance shoots where the luminance varies within a fixed camera angle.
