The increased vertical pixel count allows room for under video data for custom applications.
DSLR RATIO ADJUSTMENT: Marshall's new DSLR RATIO ADJUSTMENT feature allows users to scale video that does not completely fill the monitor's screen when connected via HDMI in "Record" mode on certain Canon DSLRs. This new feature allows the user to scale their DSLR video output, fill the screen, and eliminate black pillar bars with a variety of options to choose from. The user has the option of choosing between NORMAL, 3:2, 16:9, and FULL SCREEN. The DSLR RATIO ADJUSTMENT feature can be programmed to one of the front panel's four-button presets for quick and easy access.
Waveform, Audio and Clip Guide displays: The new V-LCD71MD incorporates both a Waveform display and Stereo Audio bars. These may be displayed separately or together in any one of the four corners of the monitor. The Stereo Audio is de-embedded from either the HDMI input (8 channels) or from the optional 3GSDI input (16 channels). Any pair of the available channels may be selected for both the display and the Headphone Output.
False Color Filter: The False Color filter is used to aid in the setting of camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values. This enables proper exposure to be achieved without the use of costly, complicated external test equipment. To best utilize this feature, you must understand the color chart and have a basic understanding of camera exposure. Normally, when shooting subjects like people, it is common practice to set exposure of faces to the equivalent of approximately 56 IRE. The False Color filter will show this area as the color PINK on the monitor. Therefore, as you increase exposure (open the IRIS), your subject will change color as indicated on the chart.
