After a move into OLED technology last year TVLogic is returning to their LCD roots with two new monitors: the 7″ inch 3600nit F-7H mk2 and the 500nit F-5A 5.5″ monitor. We caught up with Jin from TVLogic to break down the specs on both and find out why they’ve moved away from OLED for this new generation of field monitors. We also asked TVLogic if they have any plans to introduce recording into their monitors.
F-7H mk2 LCD Monitor
At a brightness of 3600 nits TVLogic is making it easier to shoot outside and have confidence your shot is in focus. The F-7H mk2 boasts a 1920×1080 IPS display and features a toolset that includes timecode display, focus assist, vectorscope, custom 3D LUT Import, Anamorphic Desqueeze and audio metering. The monitor will also auto flip depending on position and can be used in a horizontal or vertical configuration.
The F-7H mk2 will accept either HDMI or SDI input connections and will cross convert them as well for output if needed. Both 2K and HD inputs can be accepted. TVLogic expects the F-7H mk2 to begin shipping in May with a price around $2,295.
F-5A LCD Monitor
The little brother of the F-7H mk 2, the F-5A monitor is significantly less bright at 500 nits, but it also features full HD resolution and includes a variety of the same software based tools. It is also significantly cheaper at $850.00. TVLogic also expects this monitor to be available in May.
