High-quality monitor & powerful HD recorder
Monitor, recorder, playback and HDMI-SDI converter in one unit.

There are also luts built in for proper viewing of the log modes available from numerous popular cameras. For precision focusing there is a pixel zoom with two levels of magnification and a programmable focus assist with three styles of enhancement and a large range of adjustability.
