DM Series Monitors
The DM420 is a large format professional monitor designed for editorial and control room applications.
FSI’s 3rd generation Color Fidelity and LUT Interpolation Engine (CFE3) houses a multitude of calibration and Look LUT memories 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.
*Does not fully cover Rec2020 color space.
Additional gamma, peak luminance, and color temperature toggles further add to the versatility of DM Series Monitors.
DM series monitors support video range, extended range, and full range monitoring with simple menu based toggles.
CFE3 features industry leading tetrahedral LUT interpolation for greater accuracy and visual performance than hardware utilizing trilinear LUT interpolation.
FSI monitors come pre-calibrated from the factory and all DM series monitors support highly accurate volumetric Auto Calibration for recalibration over time.
Simply plug a supported probe directly into the monitor and the advanced AutoCal routine will profile the monitor and use volumetric data to accurately target a very wide variety of available color management selections. 3D and 1D LUTs are calculated and saved on the fly as color management selections on the monitor are made, making for one simple and unified calibration process, all without requiring a computer.

DM series monitors are also fully compatible with popular 3rd party calibration solutions including Calman, LightSpace, and ColourSpace. Quickly and easily perform your own custom 3D LUT based calibration with any program capable of saving into FSI’s calibration LUT format.

This 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.

Meters feature adjustable Alignment Level, Permitted Max Level, and Peak Hold Time. Select between True Peak, PPM Type I, or PPM Type II ballistics. Meters will indicate NO DATA if an audio group is not embedded in the signal to differentiate it from audio channels that may be mute, but still embedded.
