The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display is perfect for new or retrofit applications in broadcast studios and mobile production vans.

The DP-V1710 fits inside 19" racks making it an excellent choice for broadcast vans that are subject to space and weight restrictions.

The DP-V1710 is 17", perfect for many broadcast applications.

The DP-V1710 is also equipped with a REMOTE (parallel mode) terminal, which means that it can be controlled remotely by a switcher or other device. This helps make this display indispensable for supporting 4K in existing outside broadcast vans.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display is equipped with four 6G-SDI terminals. As a result, 4K 60P video that up until now has required four SDI cables can now be received on two SDI cables, thus helping to simplify installation and production needs. Providing four terminals also allows 4K 60P video to be received and switched on two lines, which helps improve efficiency when confirming video.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display supports broadcast/digital cinema EOTFs, as well as Canon's own proprietary Canon Log/2/3, and the latest HDR EOTFs, Hybrid Log-Gamma (ITU-R BT.2100) and SMPTE ST 2084. Providing various EOTFs in this way powerfully supports on-location confirmation of video. Up to eight 1D-LUTs created separately can also be imported.

HDR/SDR 2 Split-Screen Display
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display supports split-screen display of HDR and SDR signals. Since video can be displayed simultaneously on the left and right screens, differences in luminance ranges and gradation/brightness can be compared at a glance, thus allowing HDR shooting to be conducted with more confidence and efficiency.

Various other features can be combined to make HDR production easier to perform: Range Compression Display according to specific production applications, Clipped Display, Camera Information Display, and Waveform Monitor Display.

The DP-V1710 fits inside 19" racks making it an excellent choice for broadcast vans that are subject to space and weight restrictions.


HDR-Compatible Waveform Monitor Display
The waveform monitor can be selected to display HDR scales (e.g. SMPTE ST 2084 nit) or Canon Log (%) for maximum flexibility in HDR production.


HDR Range Variable Adjustment Function
Variable adjustment of the HDR range is possible to suit specific applications. For example, the dynamic range of the HDR standard signal or LOG signal can be displayed to fit within the luminance supported by the display main unit (range compression), or required actual luminance parts of the range can be displayed with the highlight range area excluded (range upper limit clipping). Desired values can also be registered in advance to function buttons or channel buttons. This lets you call up respective HDR standard videos for confirmation by one-touch operation.


HDR Meta-information Display
Metadata information (color gamut, gamma, maximum luminance, average luminance maximum value of content) from PCs for HDMI-compatible video editing and Blu-ray players, cameras and other devices can be displayed on screen.

This is useful for appropriate HDR productions since videos can be monitored while confirming the HDR information at the same time.


The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display provides a black level superior to older CRT displays. What's more, by ensuring accurate gradation precision afforded by liquid crystal displays, a higher black reproduction can be achieved compared with that of CRT displays and OLEDs, on which black defects are likely to occur in the shadow areas, thus helping to improve video production quality.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display has important features for cinema style applications as well.

Camera Link-Up
The Camera Link-Up feature of the reference display allows seamless linking to the ARRI ALEXA SXT camera system, providing for increased flexibility on-set for camera assistants and DITs.

Camera Information Displays
When an ARRI Camera system is connected to the DP-V1710, the camera's metadata can be obtained, and its contents can be displayed. This means that camera set up and confidence checks during shooting can all be done on the reference display itself rather than on the camera's viewfinder or display. This allows checks without disturbing the operator and increases on set flexibility. (This feature is available when the 3G/HD-SDI format has been selected by ARRI Camera system.)

Camera Image Quality Link-Up
An image quality link-up function automatically switches the image quality of the display based on the camera's meta information. This function is established while the ARRI Camera system is connected to the DP-V1710. The fact that the image quality settings are linked automatically for the camera and for the display means that setting errors can be minimized.

Pre-set Log
Presetting by Cinema EOS System's Canon Log/Canon Log2/Canon Log3 and the ARRI Log C video display are also supported. Log C is preset to the main unit menu. So, all you have to do to check image quality is connect to the camera without having to go through the trouble of adding on any special LUTs.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display allows you to set multiple LUTs (8) for each picture mode, same as the DP-V2410 and DP-V2420.

As a result, users can select up to eight LUTs in one picture mode for improved convenience. In addition, presets from CDL1 to CDL15 and a CDL details setting screen have been added. Users can also change the name settings for CDL1 to CDL15.

Broadcast and Cinema Standards of ITU-R BT.2020 and ACES2065-1 Supported
The display has a Direct-type white LED backlight and IPS liquid crystal panel in order to achieve the high-image-quality performance that is optimally suited for the shooting locations. In addition to satisfying a multiple number of the latest broadcast standards such as ITU-R BT.709, EBU and SMPTE-C as well as the latest DCI-P3 digital cinema standard, it also meets the next-generation standards of ITU-R BT.2020 and ACESproxy, the transmission standards of ACES whose color management standard is advocated by AMPAS.

High Accuracy Uniformity
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display achieves the same level of high-accuracy uniformity as the DP-V3010, DP-V2410 and DP-V2420 reference displays. By incorporating a proprietary image processor developed for use in displays to enable fine-tuned adjustments, any color and luminance unevenness on the screen can be prevented and high-accuracy uniformity can be achieved.

Smooth and Accurate Gradation Characteristics for each RGB Color
The high-accuracy display processor enables accurate gradation displays.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display has an array of image functions that give users the ability to control and modify the display's features and customize the overall look.

High Resolution
The DP-V1710 features a panel with a 3840 x 2160 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. It can display signals compliant with the digital cinema and high-definition TV broadcast standards on a dot-by-dot basis in exhaustive detail. It makes its three expanded display modes available for 2K or full-HD video productions as well. In this way, it can be used as a FHD/2K/4K display in a wide range of applications, and it contributes to improving the efficiency of 4K/full-HD video production workflows.

Shape Trace
The DP-V1710 is equipped with three types of screen scaling functions, including the Canon Shape Tracing technology™ an original shape-tracing technology that helps to minimize artifacts on images scaled on the DP-V1710. Using the Canon Shape Tracing technology, the DP-V1710 detects the angles of hard edges and selects an appropriate interpolation to help provide smooth diagonal lines and optimal image rendering, further extending the display's application during location/studio shoots and within color-grading, DI, CGI, VFX and other post-production workflows.

2-Sample Interleave
2-Sample Interleave is supported. This technology transmits up to four sub-imagers (2K/HD) that are obtained by dividing a 4K signal into 2-pixel units and re-assembling these together to make a 4K display. This also differs from Square Division in that, since images that are slightly out of position are sent, the angle of view can be confirmed even on 2K/HD monitors by displaying one of four inputs.


2/4 Split-Screen Display Compatibility
In the 2 split-screen display mode, the picture mode can be set independently on displays A and B. And, in the 2 split-screen display/4 split screen display mode, display of the division lines can be switched on and off. The camera information can be displayed at only one location (i.e. one input).


The functions of the DP-V2410 UHD 4K Reference Display have been carried out to allow selection of enlargement ratios (4x, 8x) and display at arbitrary positions. And, the provision of zooming modes 1 to 3 means that enlargement ratio and display position can be preset, thus improving ease of use.


The DP-V1710 features a peaking function that enables users to check the focus state at a glance. With high-definition video productions, this helps with the focus adjustment to bring the subjects into focus.

Fan Shutdown
The DP-V1710 features a mode in which the display's fan is shut down for a prescribed period of time during camera shooting*. This mode can be linked with professional-use cameras, such as the cameras in the Cinema EOS System, to shut down the fan during recording. It can be useful when the noise of the fan would disturb the atmosphere in a studio or other quiet shooting location.

*The shutdown time may be shorter depending on how the display is used and the air temperature in the installation location.


Waveform Monitor and Vectorscope Functions
The DP-V1710 comes with waveform monitor and vectorscope functions. These are superimposed on the screen display. The signal level is displayed using the waveform monitor function (6 types: Y, Cr, Cb, R, G and B). The two color difference signals (Cb and Cr) are each displayed with "X axis/Y axis" using the vectorscope function.



False Color
A false color function assists in setting the camera's exposure by displaying the input image using colors that differ according to luminance level is also provided. This can make it easy to visually perceive the exposure status while overexposure (above 100% luminance level) is indicated in red and loss of dark detail (under 0% luminance level) is indicated in blue, for example.


This function saves the currently displayed image as an image file in the USB memory. Users can choose whether to capture only the video signals or include the marker, waveform monitor and other image auxiliary functions and OSD menus as well.


Frame Hold (pause function)
This function stops the image to be checked and displays it on the screen. It can also be used to capture the image shown on the screen as a photo.

Area Markers
Area markers, whose rectangle size, position, etc. can be set, have been added. They are used for checking the areas where the subtitles and duration of TV broadcasts are to be indicated. The conventional 16:9, 4:3 and other presets, the manual settings and other aspect ratio markers at a variety of different view angles can be displayed. Also incorporated are functions for displaying safety zone markers, center markers and grid markers.

Background Color
When images are to be displayed, users can select white, gray or black as the color of the black bands in the image non-display areas which are displayed due to the differences in the view angle. This function is used to check the image quality at the boundaries of the image display and non-display areas.

In order to maintain consistent high image quality the DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display utilizes built-in auto-correct functions that consistently monitor color, brightness, and other parameters that keep the display at a high level of uniformity at all times. These functions include:

Automatic Luminance Correction System
The DP-V1710 comes with Canon's proprietary control system that is used to correct the fluctuations in luminance and help ensure accurate, stable performance over time.

Calibration without a PC
The DP-V1710 achieves the same high level of stability as the DP-V3010/DP-V2410.

In cases where color shifting or other problems have occurred due to the deterioration experienced over the years, accurate corrections can be made using the external sensor (CA-210/CA-310 from Konica Minolta) without having to use a PC.


Precise Color Adjustment Prior to Shipment
In order to achieve high color uniformity, each DP-V1710 undergoes a high-precision calibration process before shipping from the factory. External calibration allows users to maintain factory settings as well as make adjustments for specific display applications.

While carrying over the proven operability of the DP-V2410 UHD 4K Reference Display, Canon has reduced the size of the OSD menu displays to the size that is optimally suited for the operation range. The information is easy to read yet does not really obstruct the display of the images on the screen.

Assignable Function Buttons
Specific functions can be registered to the function buttons in accordance with the intended applications. These functions can then be accessed immediately at the touch of a button.

Easy to Use Control Area
The control area with its function buttons factors in different scenarios for shooting at many different locations, and it is extremely easy to use. The buttons and jog dial are laid out in the same positions as they are on the DP-V2410 display. The labels and buttons on the front panel control area are illuminated to enable operation even in dark places.

If operations are to be performed at a location away from the main unit, users can connect the color grading system using the LAN connector or connect a color grading controller using the USB connector.

Serial/Parallel Remote Terminals to Enable Remote Control of the Display
Serial/parallel remote terminals are provided for remote control. This enables the operating situation at the shooting location to be confirmed by the tally lamp, and the display to be remotely controlled from a linked third-party grading system.

List of GPI Assignments
Power On/Off, tally lamp lighting (green/red/ amber). Channel/picture mode control.

12 V DC (XLR Terminal) Support
The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display can be powered by a 12 V DC source which allows the display to be used in the field when producing remote segments, dramas and documentaries, for example.

The DP-V1710 UHD 4K Reference Display is designed with your workflow in mind.

High Rigidity with Aluminum Frame
The aluminum frame design offers rigidity and strength. The front body design is based on the DP-V2410 display design concept, which offers minimal noise as to not interfere with production work.

EIA 19"Rack Mount Compatibility
The display can be installed with optional brackets for installing the rack mount.

White Papers

Understanding High Dynamic Range (HDR): A Cinematographer Perspective
Dynamic range refers to the range of reproducible tonal values within a photographic image from the deepest shadow detail to the brightest highlight detail. These tonal values originate as scene luminance values that are also known as scene brightness values that can be measured with a spot photometer, either in foot-lamberts or in camera T-stops, to establish a scene contrast ratio.

Firmware Update

Access the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display product support page to download this firmware update (ver. 1.1).

Improved Equipment Linkage with Cinema EOS Cameras

4K RAW DeBayer Support

You can now perform DeBayer processing of 4K RAW video shot by an EOS C700 or EOS C700 GS PL, and show the results on the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display. Output through a single 3G-SDI cable is possible when the frame rate is below 30P, or through two 3G-SDI cables when the frame rate is at or above 30P.

This eliminates the need for external DeBayer equipment, and reduces complicated wiring schemes of the camera and display, ultimately increasing mobility when shooting on set.

Metadata Linkage Support

When a DP-V1710 4K Reference Display is connected to an EOS C700, EOS C700 GS PL or EOS C300 Mark II, you can now obtain and display the camera's meta information*.

The ability to now see the camera metadata information on the display side, in addition to on the camera viewfinder, allows more than one person to participate in tasks such as preparing the camera at the filming location and checking the camera information during shooting, improving convenience. Camera confirmation can also be confirmed onsite or near site with this function.

*EOS C700 / C700 GS PL: on all output signals
EOS C300 Mark II: on signals other than 3G-SDI RAW (3G-SDI RAW already supported)

Camera Quality Sync

When the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display is connected to an EOS C700, EOS C700 GS PL or EOS C300 Mark II, image quality settings on the camera and display are automatically synced. This feature helps ensure minimal error by syncing camera setting in real time. For example, if the camera picture mode is set to "Cinema EOS System", the display quality switches automatically based on the meta information. Furthermore, by setting “Automatic Adjustment” to “On”, you can select whether to sync other settings such as “Color Temperature”, “Gamma”, or “Color Gamut”.

The information that can be viewed includes color gamut, gamma, ISO, color temperature, F value, resolution, shutter speed, frame rate, anamorphic, camera state (recording vs. playback).

Anamorphic Lens Support

Video taken with an anamorphic lens* to obtain a special visual expression can now be “de-squeezed” and displayed on the DP-V1710 4K Reference in its original aspect ratio. This allows for quality checks to be confirmed without compression – allowing the user to review actual capture during filming.

*A lens with a special oblong rear lens element that compresses wide-screen width video, shrinking it to about half size.

Additional HDR-compatible LUT Preset

For an ARRI camera’s Log C signal and general Log signal in broadcast, the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display is now preset with an HDR-compatible LUT for displaying HDR images captured with an ARRI camera. You can check the quality of the HDR video just by connecting a camera, without the hassle of importing a special LUT.

Additional HDR Functions / Performance Improvements

ITU-R BT.2100 ICtCp Format Support

The ICtCp format was added to the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display’s supported signal formats. ICtCp is a new format from Dolby Corporation aimed at reducing color reproduction errors. By inputting a signal in the new format ICtCp to the display, you can display SMPTE ST 2084(PQ)/Hybrid Log-Gamma video precisely to specification.

Dual-screen Display Function (4K Input Support)

The DP-V1710 4K Reference Display already supports left-right split-screen display for comparing HDR/SDR by conventional 2K/HD video. This firmware update now supports split-screen display function for 4K video inputs.

It is now possible to display normal 4K/2K video input on the left side of the screen, and HDR support functions (peaking, false color, monochrome, display of areas outside of BT.709 color gamut, etc.) on the right side of the screen. It is also possible to display a compressed brightness range on the left side of the screen, and a clipped brightness range on the right side of the screen.

Additional functionality also includes:

  • Video can be split in halves during 4K/2K video display to show a different image quality on the left and right sides
  • 4K Video can be split on left and right sides, showing different image quality on each side. For example: HDR (left side) vs SDR (right side)
  • Improved usability of function to display 2K video on two screens, showing a different image quality on the left screen and right screen

Comparing video by displaying them simultaneously on the left and right gives the user a great advantage when shooting. This function allows the user, to see at a glance, the brightness ranges, exact tones, and differences in brightness - improving efficiency during HDR filming.

False Color Function (HDR Display Support)

In addition to traditional false color feature, you can now display colors on the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display that vary according to the brightness of the SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ) and Hybrid Log-Gamma input signals. In addition, you can check the brightness level more visually since the colored areas are displayed with a gradient.

This function utilizes the specific HDR ranges that are used with SMPTE ST 2084 (PQ) and Hybrid Log-Gamma to make it easier to visualize the exposure state in HDR shooting, for example by displaying the areas in the HDR range or greater in red and the areas in the SDR range in blue. The width of the red portion of the scale changes depending on how the HDR range is set.

Function to Display Area Outside of the BT.709 Color Gamut

Now when “Color gamut: BT.2020” is set on the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display, it is possible to see colors that cannot be reproduced in the BT.709 color gamut by having them appear red. (The other areas are shown in monochrome.) This makes it possible to visually identify colors that cannot be shown when video captured in the BT.2020 and is viewed in BT.709.

HDR-Compatible 4K Waveform Monitor

The waveform monitor on the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display has been enhanced to utilize specific ranges defined by the scale types of ST 2084 (Full), ST 2084 (Limited) and Hybrid Log-Gamma.

Added “SDI Full” Color Range Setting

In addition to Full and Limited color range settings, an SDI Full color range setting has been added to the DP-V1710 4K Reference Display. The SDI Full color range setting has a black level of 4, a white level of 1019 and 10-bit color depth.

Canon Calibration PC Application

The DP-V1710 4K Reference Display now supports the Calibration PC application (DP-V Color Adjustment) for controlling inspection / calibration of the display from the computer. Using a colorimeter compatible with this Canon PC application, you will be able to calibrate the DP-V1710 with a high degree of accuracy.
