MD Series

Marshall Electronics' MD Series of rack mount monitors offer a flexible modular solution to system integration. These rack-mountable monitors can be configured with a variety of video inputs that can be "swapped" or interchanged in the field based on your evolving needs and requirements. This eliminates the need to upgrade or replace equipment when a different input or application is required. This "future proof" solution provides flexibility and reassurance when necessary, especially in multi-monitor rack mount units.

These fully-featured monitors come in a variety of sizes and configurations.Modular Design Series Broadcast rackmountable displays

All models include Status Display, False Color Filter, Markers, Freeze Function, Color Temperature Presets, RGB Gain / Bias Adjust, Pixel-to-Pixel, Blue Gun, Hard Tally, and more. A variety of modules will become available including the availability of 3G/HD/SDI with loop-through, Fiber-Optic input/output modules, and more.

These monitors are the WORLD'S FIRST HD MONITORS WITH DIRECT FIBER OPTIC VIDEO INPUTS. Marshall's MD monitors integrate Telecast Fiber System's TeleCube™ Fiber-Optic HD/SDI transmission input/output modules. These fiber modules deliver the industry's broadest range of digital rates while maintaining pristine signal quality that broadcasters and integrators demand.

With broadcast production facilities looking to the future with 3Gb/s SDI integration, Marshall fills the void with these fully-featured, high-end monitors with full 3G / HD / SD support. For distances beyond 150 meters, fiber-optic signalling may be required. To fulfil this need, Marshall looked to Telecast Fiber Systems, the company that developed fiber-optic video technology for television broadcast production. Telecast's comprehensive systems are used worldwide.

These monitors received TV Technology's STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) at IBC 2009 in Amsterdam. These awards are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the media industy. A panel of judges consisting of TV Technology editors and columnists reviewed a variety of products and services, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.

Network Control

V-MD series rack LAN port built-in web serverEach V-MD series rack includes a LAN port with a built-in web server. This allows the operator to visually monitor and control any or all V-MD series units that are connected to the LAN. Any function that is addressable from the front panel of a V-MD series monitor can be accessed via Firefox® web browser -- even on a wireless device.** The rear panel LAN 100 port connects the unit to the LAN.

Once connected, the user simply locates the IP address of any one of the units connected to the LAN. This is accomplished by going to the MAIN MENU of any of the connected units and selecting the NETWORK CONFIGURATION submenu. This will then display the IP address of that unit. V-MD units are shipped with the DHCP mode enabled.

MD Network Control Power and Input Simply type this IP address into the address bar of your browser and the home page for that unit will appear. It is possible to poll your LAN for all other MD units connected by accessing the NETWORK tab from the Top Menu.er can then control multiple networked MD monitors at once using a single browser page. The user may select which monitor(s) they wish to control and send commands to those particular monitors. The browser provides real-time status of any connected monitor, ensuring consistent signals / feeds and so forth.


False Color Filter

Color filter scale

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).

IMD and Tally

Use the "Text Enable" function to turn the MD Text feature ON. This will cause the "Text String" to appear on the lower portion of the screen. This provides the user with a 16 character on-screen text string. The color, background (opacity), and alignment of text can also be managed by the operator. This same menu allows control of Tally Source. Tally lights (both LED and on-screen) can be enabled/disabled and also set to match "Text String" color.
