At NAB 2022, Flanders Scientific was showing a prototype of its upcoming DM220 22″ 1920 x 1080 10-bit OLED production and post-production monitor.
The DM220 is a high-contrast 22″ OLED monitor designed for use in color-critical production and post-production applications. It is claimed to feature industry-leading fast mode processing, a durable all-metal chassis, an impressive advanced feature set, and a compact and lightweight form factor.
Flanders Scientific told us that it will have a Zero Delay mode, direct integration with Pomfort Livegrade, and Assimilate Live Looks, a feature set that includes AutoCal and ScopeStream, Tetrahedral Interpolation, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
The monitor features FSI’s 3rd generation Color Fidelity and LUT Interpolation Engine (CFE3) which features a multitude of calibration and Look LUT memories. You can select from Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, DCI P3, Rec2020 Emulation, Native Wide Gamut, and Custom User Generated color spaces. Please note that the DM220 doesn’t fully cover the Rec2020 color space.
DM series monitors support both data (full) range monitoring and video (legal) range monitoring with simple menu-based toggles.
The monitor features tetrahedral LUT interpolation for greater accuracy and visual performance than hardware utilizing trilinear LUT interpolation.
The DM220 has two SDi In and two SDI outs, a monitor In and a monitor Out as well as a host of other inputs and connectivity.
The monitor also features a Real-Time Waveform and Vectorscope that update every frame. Scope position, background, size, and scale can be adjusted independently using the rotary knobs on the face of the monitor. Real Time scopes work in all processing modes including Zero Delay Fast Mode.
The DM220 can be powered via mains or through a 4-pin DC power source.
Price & Availability
The Flanders Scientific DM220’S shipping date is TBD and it is expected to retail for around $6500 USD.
