The V-LCD70XHB-3GSDI is a portable monitor that is a perfect solution for video professionals shooting outdoors or in bright lighting conditions. Don't be fooled by higher screen resolution or larger-sized monitors. Our picture performance, feature set, customer service, and experience is why the industry's leading videographers and camera operators prefer Marshall over the competition. Our product is designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA.
The V-LCD70XHB-3GSDI has been upgraded with even more features and versatility, but without additional cost. Major features include cast metal front panel, adjustable backlight and markers, manual gamma adjustment, Image Flip, 1/4"-20 mounting on all sides, and a robust power switch.
This 7" monitor offers standard features including a wide variety of formats and markers, 4 user-configurable front panel function buttons, RGB Check Field / Field Detect, RGB gain and bias control, 4-pin XLR power jack, and optical grade polycarbonate screen protection. Two other major features include Marshall's industry leading FALSE COLOR and PEAKING Filters. These units also offer the ability to adapt up to nine different battery configurations for providing mobile operation in the field. This option provides flexibility when using different cameras or configurations. Our large selection of battery adapters can be interchanged (or "swapped" out) by the end-user.

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.
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: PINK, then GREY, then a few shades of YELLOW. Overexposed subjects (above 101 IRE) on the monitor will be shown as RED. In addition, underexposed subjects will show as DEEP-BLUE to DARK-BLUE, with clipped-blacks indicated with a FUCHSIA-like color. Lastly, the color GREEN is used to indicate elements of the image that are approximately 45 IRE. This represents a "neutral" or "mid-level" exposure commonly used for objects (not people).
The Peaking Filter is used to aid the camera operator in obtaining the sharpest possible picture. When activated, the internal processor will display a colored highlight on the screen where sharp edges appear. When the camera operator adjusts (or "racks") the focus control (on the camera lens), different parts of the image will have these colored highlights. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus. Final focus is achieved by racking the camera lens focus control back and forth until the desired portion of the image has the colored highlights.
The original version of the peaking filter removed the color from the image leaving a black and white picture with Red highlights. This new version not only keeps the original color but adds a choice of four colors, Red, Green, Yellow and Pink to choose from for the highlights as well as adjustable sensitivity for even finer control of focus.
Please note that this feature is most effective when the subject is properly exposed and contains enough contrast to be processed.
