Dolby Professional Reference Video Monitors

Post by Paramvir Singh »

Dolby Professional Reference Monitor

The first flat-panel monitor to truly outperform a CRT, the Dolby® monitor offers a new standard in critical viewing. It delivers the most precise color accuracy possible, with true blacks, exceptional dark detail, high contrast, wide dynamic range, and reliable performance over a long lifetime.

The Emmy® Award–winning Dolby monitor is the first monitor to accurately display the full latitude of today's high-end digital cameras. It facilitates the creative process for colorists, cinematographers, and video professionals by ensuring that the final image will reflect exactly what they see on the monitor. Dolby’s patented dual-modulation display technology produces images of the highest quality possible on a flat-panel monitor.

The Industry-Standard Video Reference Monitor
The Dolby® Professional Reference Monitor PRM-4200 is the most accurate display for creating any type of entertainment content. Dolby’s patented dual-modulation display technology produces images of the highest quality possible on a flat-panel display. The first flat panel to surpass the CRT, the Dolby professional video reference monitor is the new industry standard.

The Most Accurate Color-Correction Monitor

The Dolby Professional Reference Monitor enables the creative process for colorists and cinematographers by ensuring that the final image will reflect exactly what they see on the display. The most accurate color-correction monitor available, it displays the full dynamic range that the latest advanced digital cameras can capture.

Renders superior black-level performance, with true blacks, highly accurate dark detail, and precise linearity maintained across the entire gray scale
Accurately displays DCI P3, all high-definition formats over HD-SDI, and 2K video content
Allows accurate viewing of all image details in the darks, and highlights what other monitors typically clip
Displays color looks and previsualization with 1D and 3D look-up tables (LUTs)
As a color-grading monitor, the Dolby Professional Reference Monitor uses 3D LUTs to emulate the full gamut and contrast ratio of film, as well as the color profile of digital cameras. This makes DCI P3 color grading possible without the use of a digital projector.

Professional Video Monitor with Technical Versatility

The Dolby professional video monitor integrates into any workflow, from small operations to large. It supports all of the current and emerging formats that filmmakers are using.

Supports 3D LUTs (including Nucoda 3D LUTs), allowing calibration to perfectly match digital screening environments and to emulate the response of film-print stocks during the digital intermediate color-correction process
Provides the exceptional reliability of an LCD display
Supports not only today’s 10-bit video formats but also emerging 12-bit formats without dithering or downscaling of the color gamut
Supports high frame rates of 48 frames per second (fps) and 60 fps
Supports Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) workflows
The Dolby Professional Reference Monitor has a 42-inch (diagonal) LCD flat-panel display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It also delivers a wide viewing angle of 90 degrees horizontal (45 degrees on either side of the center point).

High-Definition Video Reference Monitor with Superior ROI

Each Dolby video reference monitor can replace a collection of other professional video monitors, allowing HD and digital cinema workflows in the same room.

Emulates virtually any other display device, replacing a range of other color correction monitors that are also used for mastering and quality control
Allows facilities to perform digital intermediate workflows without an expensive digital projector
Enables exceptional-quality work that will please existing clients and attract new ones
Uses dual modulation technology that outlasts all other display types in color accuracy
Dolby is now offering the industry’s first field calibration service. This service helps lower the cost of ownership for the PRM-4200 by eliminating the need to purchase costly calibration equipment.

Dolby Display Calibration Services, deployed entirely by Dolby staff, provide postproduction professionals an inexpensive, convenient, and reliable way to ensure that colors remain precise and black levels stay true. These services also enable customers to calibrate their displays to the right color space for a specific project or workflow.

Intuitive Access and Additional Features

This professional video monitor includes an external remote controller that handles all functions, giving you offscreen, intuitive access to all features, functions, and parameters through simple, easy-to-use menus. The remote controller can be rack mounted or used on the desktop.
