The 17" Flanders Scientific DM170 Production Monitor is a compact, lightweight, and energy efficient version of their popular DM250 monitor. FSI’s 3rd generation Color Fidelity and LUT Interpolation Engine (CFE3) houses multiple 4,913 point (173) calibration and DIT (look) LUTs for highly accurate color reproduction and effective look management. Instantly select from Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, DCI P3, Rec2020 Emulation*, Native Wide Gamut, and Custom User Generated color spaces. Additional gamma, peak luminance, and color temperature toggles further add to the versatility of the DM170. Quickly switch to data (full) range monitoring or video (legal) range monitoring.

FSI monitors come pre-calibrated from the factory and free recalibration is always available for customers that would like to send their units in to an FSI service department. Quickly and easily perform your own 3D LUT based calibration with advanced color management solutions like LightIllusion's LightSpace CMS or SpectraCal's CalMAN.

CFE3 supports real-time LUT updates over IP using compatible software such as Pomfort's LiveGrade Pro without the need for additional standalone LUT management hardware. All you need is a camera, computer, and a DM170.

The DM170 lets you mirror what you see on screen to downstream equipment. Apply LUTs on the DM170 and other downstream monitors simultaneously. Second screen outputs work in addition to standard loop through outputs allowing you to simultaneously output clean and manipulated images.

The monitor also includes Zero Delay mode. When activated the total latency between receipt of signal and onscreen display is less than 1 field. Zero Delay makes the DM170 an ideal choice for applications requiring instantaneous video processing speed in on set, studio, and post environments.

DM Series monitors come equipped with cross conversion capability. This allows you take DisplayPort / HDMI / DVI signals and convert them to SDI for output.

Display up to two scopes on screen at a time. Scopes can be positioned in any of 6 on screen positions. When using two scopes the scope windows can be stacked horizontally or vertically depending on your preference. Video scopes work across all inputs, even DVI. Scope intensity is adjustable and waveform scale can be shown in IRE, millivolt, or digital levels. Levels above or below 100IRE are shown in red for easy identification.

The DM170 monitor features several audio metering tools as well as the ability to disembed any single channel or stereo pair of audio to the monitor’s internal speakers or audio line out. Disembedded audio is always delayed by the exact amount of video processing time to ensure proper lip-sync.
