JVC Ready to Ship 84-Inch 60p 4K Monitors
Two Slightly Different Models to List at $13,500-$14,000
JVC said today that its new 84-inch 4K (3840×2160) 60p monitors will start shipping later this month. The displays are designed for installation in video production studios and trucks, medical imaging, and corporate environments.
"4K production is on the rise," noted JVC Assistant VP of Marketing Communications Dave Walton in a prepared statement.
Both monitors are built around a 10-bit 120Hz IPS LCD panel with a 178-degree viewing angle. They support HDMI 1.4a for 30p 4K over a single HDMI cable, as well as HDMI 1.3 for 60p 4K over four cables.
If you were at Cine Gear, you may have seen the PS-840UD in action, as FOR-A used two of the displays to monitor output from the FT-ONE 4K super-slow-motion camera via a Quad MC converter from Keisoku Giken.
The RS-840UD includes the Certified Calibration Configuration (C3) system licensed through the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) and has a suggested list price of $13,500. The PS-740UD is nearly identical in terms of features, but lacks the ISF calibration feature and adds an Intel Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) module for use in public signage applications. It will list for $14,000.
