The LUM-242G is a 24 inch UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) monitor with maximum luminance of 500nit, contrast ratio of 1,200:1, wide color gamut and wide viewing angle.
Equipped with 4 BNCs (2×12G-SDI + 2×3G-SDI) and HDMI 2.0 interface, it supports various video formats up to 4K/60p through single-link 12G-SDI, Quad 3G-SDI and HDMI 2.0.
In addition to various professional features such as Waveform monitor and Vectorscope, the LUM-242G provides HDR emulation function with HDR EOTFs of PQ, HLG and SLog3.
A true HDR monitor must employ a special display panel with high dynamic range and a wide color gamut, along with being calibrated for PQ and HLG. For example, the LUM-310X (dual layer LCD system) and LUM-310R (LCD with local dimming backlight system) are capable of reproducing a peak luminance of 1,000 nit and 2,000 nit respectively, and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000 : 1; in addition, they cover 99% of the DCI color gamut.
Other monitor utilizing displays with normal luminace range from 0.1nit up to 400nit or high luminance monitor with up to 2000nit with variable black level (0.1 ~ 1.5nit) is defined as 'HDR Emulation monitor' in TVLogic although they have HDR EOTF and related functions. Below is a simple example for your reference.
* True HDR Monitor : HDR Display (~1000nit, 1M CR, DCI gamut) + HDR EOTF & other related function
* HDR Emulation Monitor : Normal Display (~400nit, 1000:1, BT.709 gamut) + HDR EOTF & other related function
And in TVLogic monitors, HDR Emulation function includes the control parameters below;
* Standard Color Mode (HLG, PQ, PQ2)
* Video Range
* Display Luminance *
* HDR EOTF (PQ, HLG) or Camera Logs** (coming soon)
* PQ EETF (On / Off)
* HLG System Gamma (Fixed 1.2 / Auto)
* Color Gamut (BT.709, DCI-P3, BT.2020 and Native mode)
* White Point (D65, D93, DCI)
* Gamut Warning
* Shadow Mode *** (LUM-318G only)
1:1 Pixel Mapping Modes for SD/HD
Displays the original image resolution without scaling to match a certain resolution or an aspect ratio.
Waveform Y: Displays the Luma(Y’), Cb, Cr component of the input signal into waveform.
Vector Scope: Displays the color components ‘B-Y’ and ‘R-Y’of the input signals onto the X-Y axis.
