24′ Grade One Performance Standalone Monitor
The ORCHID OR-2410 is at home in any control room or production environment. Producers, directors, editors and engineers will appreciate the high quality ‘grade one’ performance of the 24′ full resolution IPS panel. Like all ORCHID Series monitors, the OR-2410 includes integrated real-time Waveform, Vectorscope, Histogram, Audio Level Meters, Audio Log, Audio Phase Display, and Audio Peak Alarm. Up to 16 channels of embedded audio may be extracted and displayed on 64-segment tri-color bar graph meters with adjustable peak hold and reference and headroom levels. Any two of the 16 channels may be selected as the source for the built-in stereo speakers, as well as the headphone and line output jacks. Seven user assigned function keys, four rotary encoders and RotoMenu control allow easy access to all of these advanced functions.
The built-in precision audio and video tools eliminate the need for expensive outboard test equipment and saves valuable rack and production desk space. Other production tools include Peaking Filter, ClipGuide and a variety of preset and user-adjustable markers. For single input side-by-side 3D production, the OR-2410 includes five 3D filters including Luminance and Chroma Difference, along with four anaglyph 3D views.
To maintain flawless color calibration and white balance performance, the OR-2410 can be calibrated via the built-in ‘One Push Auto Calibrate’* function. This can be done without use of an external computer if connected to a KONICA MINOLTA CA-310 color probe system.
*’One Touch Auto Calibrate’ requires optional OR-SM service module in order to connect color probe system.

The built-in waveform monitor (which includes adjustable White and Black clip level indicators) can be displayed in various aspect ratios, positions, and transparency options. The Waveform Monitor not only monitors luminance, but can also warn the user for out-of-range conditions such as overexposure or ‘blacker-than-black’ errors with fully user-adjustable warning limits.
REAL-TIME COLOR VECTORSCOPE
The built-in Vectorscope allows users to monitor color gamut range in real time. It displays in full color and can also be displayed in various sizes, positions, and transparency options. The Vectorscope has adjustable gain from 1x to 5x.
The Clip Guide function operates with both the Waveform display and Monochrome/Color picture display. Both the upper and lower Clip Guide levels are user-adjustable in order to accurately display over-and-under exposures during different shooting conditions. For example, the upper Clip Guide limit may be set to 85 IRE and the lower limit to 10 IRE. With these settings, any exposures over the set limit of 85 IRE will display red on both the Waveform and picture (if selected). The same will be true for blacks under 10 IRE.
It is important that LCD monitors match the color and gamma characteristics of a CRT monitor. To emulate CRT gamma, the non-linear curves are corrected by software algorithms. This process is complicated because the three non-linear colors (RGB) should be corrected simultaneously. The ORCHID gamma correction overcomes this problem and ensures correct matching between panels and channels.
AUDIO LEVEL METERS
De-embeds and displays up to 16 channels of audio using sixteen 64-segment tri-color Audio Meters with user-adjustable reference levels. The Audio Level Meters provide numerical indicators and headroom levels, as well as peak hold function. Audio Channel Loss Warning prevents errors during monitoring.
FRONT AND REAR PANEL AUDIO OUTPUT
Monitor any two channels at once through the front audio output jack or rear line output jack.
EXTENSIVE MENU SYSTEM
7 user-assignable function keys with Rotomenu system.
White balance adjustment is essential in order to render colors correctly. To display colors correctly, gray scale should maintain identical color temperature. The white balance for ORCHID monitors defaults to D65 (6500K) so the user does not need to adjust white balance. LCD monitors have color-matching issues because white balance can be affected by a change in luminance level. Our unique color management system solves this problem.
ONE BUTTON COLOR CALIBRATION
The ORCHID operating system includes an Automatic White Balance function that allows a ‘One Button’ calibration procedure when used with a Konica Minolta CA-310 color analyzer. All ORCHID Series LCD panels are calibrated at the factory to ensure color conformity between screens.
