I have read and understand the information above, and wish to download the designated software.
The highly portable and convenient design of the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display makes it well suited for a wide variety of production and postproduction uses. It can be used on-set as a Director, or client display, or will fit on many DIT carts for on-set or near-set color correction and dailies work. It’s also the ideal size for use as a 4K UHD program monitor in the control rooms of mobile sports and event-production trucks.
The display measures approximately 22.68" x 17.20" x 7.09" (WxHxD), including handle and stand, and is built with a sturdy metal frame- but weighs only about 26 pounds. The display also features a carrying handle, an integrated control panel, solid metal frame and inputs for 24V DC battery power (or 100-240V AC).
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display is equipped with a 24-inch IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD panel that outputs a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. This 10-bit panel provides a wide viewing angle that displays images with edge-to-edge consistency with minimal color shifting. Further supporting this new IPS panel is a power-efficient RGB LED backlight optimized for the LCD panel's color filter. This helps achieve high quality color reproduction with high brightness and the DP-V2411 panel also features an anti-glare surface for reflection-reduced image display.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display supports the next-generation standard of ITU-R BT.2020, and ACESproxy (ACES 1.0) the transmission standards of ACES whose color management standard was developed under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, as well as the DCI-P3 digital cinema standard, ITU-R BT.709, EBU, and SMPTE-C broadcast standards. The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display's advanced gamut mapping technology support ITU-R BT.2020 to optimally display color data outside of the native panel color gamut.
The reference display also supports ITU-R BT.2020 color matrix (constant luminance) by converting consistent luminance YUV signals to linear signals and then converting them to RGB signals and, finally, adding gamma. This process allows the monitoring of images recorded with constant luminance.
The ultimate goal is to reproduce the same amount of luminance on the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display as was captured on-scene, giving the viewer the same feel as if they were present on the set at the time of image capture.
The high contrast IPS LCD panel in combination with advanced digital processing empowers the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display to achieve a 2000:1 contrast ratio. This helps faithfully reproduce important shadow details while simultaneously reproducing highlight information. Tonal reproduction over the nominally exposed range of the image is outstanding. This high-contrast accuracy is essential for critical assessment of images during nighttime shoots and other low-light scenes that are important factors in digital cinema production.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display supports the ability to display High Dynamic Range (HDR) footage captured by Canon's proprietary "Canon Log 3" and "Canon Log 3 (HDR)" as well as "Hybrid Log-Gamma" (the HDR video standard). These HDR capabilities help maximize retention of the original coloring and brightness of the recorded subjects and HDR EOTF recommended by the SMPTE ST 2084 standard. The HDR display function allows users to view and confirm the subtle details of underexposed and overexposed areas of displayed images and to compare SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) images with HDR images.
Images are simulated
For example, in scenes containing light areas and dark areas such as a dark room and bright sun peeking through the window above, areas in between are scarcely recognizable in a SDR monitor due to the loss of dark detail and overexposure.
The SDR monitor has difficulty supporting the corresponding details of the original data. Even in dark scenes, gradation is more visible using the DP-V2411, which gives the user the ability to monitor images with high contrast from the very dark areas to the bright areas and rich-mid tones of HDR content. Users can check how SDR and HDR images compare with the ability to verify the final image quality at the shooting location, helping to maximize efficiency in video production.
The DP-V2411 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. They include:
This function allows the display's contrast range to increase from 0-1500 when off, and then from 1500-4000 when turned on.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference's Backlight Scanning uses a full array RGB backlight, allowing individual backlight areas to be partially turned off includes three adjustment choices (auto, high, low, and off). This feature helps reduce the image-hold period inherent to LED technology while images are being displayed, and results in crisp video playback, reducing the perception of blurring between video frames. It also enhances static image contrast ratio.
The majority of current cinema and commercial production work still uses HD and 2K video. The DP-V2411 display 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-V2411. Using the Canon Shape Tracing technology, the DP-V2411 display 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.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display can perform 4K RAW format image debayering internally*, without the need for any external debayering equipment. This enables a sophisticated, yet simple 4K production-monitoring environment to be set-up with minimal wiring connections and as a result, greater mobility for the EOS C700, EOS C500/C500PL and EOS C300 Mark II digital cinema cameras.
Use of an external recorder or debayering device is typically needed when using any camera with a display other than the Canon DP-V2411.
When the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display is connected to either an EOS C700, EOS C500/C500 PL or EOS C300 Mark II digital cinema camera, the 4K RAW format image de-bayering process occurs in the reference display. There is no need for a 3rd party de-bayering unit. This allows you to display 4K/30p content with a single 3G-SDI cable, and 4K/60p content with only two 3G-SDI cables.
It is also possible to use a recorder that does not include a de-bayering function by passing the signals straight through the DP-V2411 display to the recorder.
Additionally, the DP-V2411 can display 4K/60p content from any 4K camera with a single HDMI cable- provided that camera supports 4K/60p output connection.
*Internal 4K RAW format image debayering currently works only with the EOS C700, EOS C500/C500 PL and EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Cameras.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display supports the latest ACES2065-1, which is becoming widely adopted in production, post-production and archiving workflows.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display is capable of providing RAW format image de-bayering and ACES Input Transform, enabling the reference display to transfer RAW format images to the ACES2065-1 images. These images can be displayed by adjusting the exposure and colors using a CDL's (color decision lists) and by performing ACES Output Transform processing. In addition, by sharing the CDL data using a USB connection, the signals output by on-the-set grading and editing set-ups have the same colors and gradations, so the "look" determined on-set or at an off-site grade can be maintained throughout the postproduction workflow.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display also can be used with any source input that complies with ACESproxy.
The EOS C700, EOS C500 and EOS C300 Mark II digital cinema cameras can be directly connected to the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display, enabling the Display to act as a 24-inch program display that can be seen by multiple people and used (in place of the camera’s viewfinder) to check focus, angle of view, and other picture attributes. In addition, a range of on-screen display functions provide convenient Shooting Assistance Tools. These direct integration features include:
Camera Information Display
This allows for the camera’s metadata information to be viewed when the 3G-SDI RAW format has been selected. Types of metadata that can be displayed include color temperature, f-value, ISO speed, shutter speed, gamma, color gamut, resolution, frame rate, I/P/PsF and camera status (shooting or playback).
Camera Image Quality Link-Up
This function automatically switches the image quality of the display based on the camera’s metadata when the 3G-SDI RAW and Canon Log mode are established. This Link-Up function can be used to link color temperature, gamma and color gamut information. Canon has also made it possible for users to select “Cinema Gamut to 709” or “Cinema Gamut to DCI-P3” as the display’s color gamut when “DCI-P3+” or “Cinema Gamut” (supported by the Cinema EOS System camera) has been set. The image Link-Up function ultimately helps reduce user error. If a quality setting changes on the camera, the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display will automatically make the adjustments accordingly.
The DP-V2411 is also supports connectivity with ARRI Camera systems, incorporating a function enabling the display of metadata acquired from the ARRI cameras. Additionally, a quality sync function automatically changes the display’s picture quality based on camera settings for improved on-location convenience.
Convenient on-screen display functions that provide a range of Shooting Assistance Tools when the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display is connected to a Canon Cinema EOS camera include:
Simultaneous, Multi Image Display
The display is capable of handling multiple images including two-screen 2K images and four-screen HD images. 2-Sample Interleave Division for the split transmission of 4K and UHD video signals
This feature allows for easy visualization of the PQ or HLG brightness values throughout an image. There is no guesswork in HDR exposure values in comparison to a waveform meter. A variable (100 to 10,000nit) maximum level can also be set – so for instance if you are mastering a 1000 nit project, you can set the maximum level for 1000 nits, then everything over 1000 nits will be shown in red. Everything in SDR is shown in Black and White.
This function provides at-a-glance focus confirmation. This convenient tool should be familiar to users of HD cameras.
4K Waveform Monitor and Vector Scope
These are superimposed on the screen display. The signal level is displayed using the waveform monitor function (six types: Y, Cr, Cb, R, G, and B). The two color-difference signals (Cb and Cr) are each displayed with “X axis/Y axis” when the vector scope function is engaged. Included are optimized waveform monitor display settings for Canon Log, SMPTE ST 2084 and other signal inputs.
Any area of the screen can be selected and enlarged. Magnifying a portion of the picture can make the focusing process easier to accomplish. This includes a feature that allows users to select 4X and 8X magnification levels.
False Color Exposure Metering
This assists in setting the camera's exposure by displaying the input image using colors that differ according to their luminance level. For example, over exposure (above 100% luminance level) is indicated in red and loss of dark detail (under 0% luminance level) is indicated in blue.
Audio Level Meter
This provides a clear, instant visual representation of how loud the sound is being picked up by the camera's microphone(s). (The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display also includes a stereo mini-jack for headphones.)
This function saves the currently displayed image as an image file in a USB memory, such as “thumb drive.” Users can choose whether to capture only the video image or also include the marker, waveform monitor, and other image auxiliary functions and OSD menus as well.
This function freezes 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 in rectangle size, position, etc., can be set using this function. They are used for checking the areas where the subtitles and duration of TV broadcasts are to be indicated. Also incorporated are functions for displaying safety zone markers, center markers, and grid markers.
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.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display features a mode in which the display's internal 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 Canon Cinema EOS cameras. It is useful when the noise of this normally quiet fan might disturb an especially noise-sensitive atmosphere of a studio or other quiet shooting location.
In order to maintain consistent high image quality the DP-V2411 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:
Precise Color Adjustment Prior to Shipment
In order to achieve high color uniformity, each DP-V2411 4K Reference Display 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.
Automatic Brightness Correction System
A special control system within the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display constantly measures ambient lighting conditions, as well as internal display changes - including color temperature and brightness - to help reduce fluctuations in light levels and color, thereby helping to ensure long-term image stability and consistency.
Calibration Without a PC
Following high-precision factory alignment, the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display can be calibrated easily and conveniently without the need for an external PC workstation. Using third-party external sensors, users can calibrate the display in accordance with viewing environment and application.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display supports direct importing of both 1D and 3D Look-up Tables (LUTs) for accurate and consistent color matching between individual displays, as well as using customized 'looks' that have been created by third-party color-grading applications Multiple LUTS can be setup per picture mode giving users the ability to rapidly compare up to 8 different LUT's without having to change the picture mode.
There is a CDL processing area where users can manage LUTs, including functions such as “LUT Import”, “LUT Name” and “LUT Delete.
The OSD (on-screen display) menu and control layout of the DP-V2411 is designed to deliver clear, unambiguous, at-a-glance communication of visual information. It is the same proven OSD as that used for the Canon DP-V3010 4K Reference Display. Users can also change OSP positions according to the resolution of images displayed.
The buttons and jog dial, located on the front panel of the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display, are laid out in the same positions as they are on the CL-01 display controller of the DP-V3010 4K Reference Display. The labels and buttons are illuminated to enable operation in dark areas.
Functions can also be registered to the function buttons in accordance with the intended applications. The frequently used functions can be recalled and used right away just by touching a button.
There is a broad choice in signal inputs to the DP-V2411 4K Reference Display including two variants of 4K and the ability to upscale either 2K or HD all at multiple, frame rates.
The DP-V2411 4K Reference Display features the following connections:
- Four 12G/HD-SDI BNC connectors.
- One HDMI input (HDMI strengthens camera-linking capabilities because it allows for the transmission of 4096 x 2160 60P images via a single cable.

This paper will outline the numerous design strategies in a unique second generation digital cinematography production system intended to originate imagery in 2K/HD/4K/UHD formats that have both High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Color Gamut (WCG). The system includes the cine lens, a new digital camcorder, and an on-set reference display that share a coordinated system design conforming to the ACES 1.0 system developed by the Technical Council of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
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.
