PortKeys has teased its new MT22DS 21.5″ 1920 x 1080 Dual Screen Cinema Production Monitor.
The monitor is a follow-up to the original MT22. It features a 21.5″ 1920 x 1080 display that has a claimed brightness of 1000nits and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. It covers 100% of Rec.709 and it features both SDI and HDMI In/Out ports.
The dual-screen capabilities allow you to set up the monitor to display two images in various different frame sizes depending on your requirements.
The monitor has two SDI inputs, an SDI output, an HDMI input and output, two +48V XLR inputs, two 12-24V DC inputs, a USB-A, and a headphone output jack. There is also ab optional Vesa mount available.
In another nice touch, the MT22DS allows you to directly attach certain wireless video receivers directly to either N-PF or V-mount battery plates.
Another feature is that you can capture JPEG images and then overlay them in real-time to compare frames which is handy if you need to do repeat set-ups.
According to PortKeys, the monitors are pre-calibrated using the X-rite 709 color gamut before they are shipped.
The casing of the monitor is made from CNC-machined aluminum alloy and it weighs in at 5.8kg and it draws 60W of power.
Price & Availability
I don’t have any indication yet of pricing or availability as this monitor won’t be officially announced till NAB.
It looks like an interesting monitor and if it is competitively priced, which I am sure it will be, it might make for a nice alternative to more expensive offerings.
