The ORCHID® OR-701A is a" 3-RU Full Featured rack mount Audio / Video monitor system. With built-in Waveform Monitor, Vector scope, Audio Bars, Stereo full range speakers, multiple audio outputs and several diagnostic tools, this monitor is ideal for use in control rooms, media duplication facilities and remote vans where monitoring the technical aspects of the feed is as important as a high definition image. The OR-701A provides a complete Audio, Video monitoring solution for 2 HD/SD-SDI feeds. The OR-701A is equipped with two HD/SD-SDI inputs with an active switched loop thru as well as optional input slot which can be used for and additional Component, DVI-I or other input formats. Diagnostic tools include our exclusive ClipGuide™ feature, 16 Tri-Color Audio Bar Graph meters with peak hold and numeric display of headroom and peak levels, as well as real time analysis of color space conversion Gamut Errors. Other standard features include factory calibrated screens, easy to navigate on screen menus with 5 button control, 11 assignable function keys, 4 assignable rotary encoders, adjustable color temperature, aspect ratio settings, a variety of screen markers, under scan mode, blue-only mode, monochrome mode, H/V delay, 7 assignable GPI inputs View

The OR-701A takes the same multi-function waveform and Vectorscope features found in Marshall's OR-702 and adds full range audio speakers and a new vertical audio bar layout for real-time audio monitoring. Any two of the sixteen audio channels being de-embedded from the HD-SDI source may be monitored through the built-in full range speakers. The same audio is available from balanced XLR outputs on the rear panel, along with the two front panel headphone jacks (3.5mm and 1/4'). Each audio output has its own level control. The front panel speakers have Volume, Balance and Mute controls that operate separately from the rear panel line and front panel headphone outputs.

The OR-701A is 3RU and has 11 user-assignable function keys as well as 4 user-assignable rotary encoders. This unit also utilizes a 5 button menu system. The built-in waveform monitor (which includes adjustable White and Black clip level indicators) can be displayed in three different aspect ratios including Full Screen.

The built-in Vectorscope displays in full color and can also be displayed in three different ratios. The Vectorscope has adjustable gain from 1x to 5x. All screens are color matched at the factory and can be auto-adjusted in the field using an optional color probe system. The 64-segment tri-color bar graph meters have user-adjustable reference levels. The OR-701A comes standard with auto-sensing HD-SDI inputs, re-clocked output, and an open modular slot for additional input options.

FEATURE EXPLANATION

WAVEFORM MONITOR  

WAVEFORM MONITOR

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  

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.

CLIP GUIDE  

CLIP GUIDE

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.

PRECISION GAMMA  

PRECISION GAMMA

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  

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  

FRONT AND REAR PANEL AUDIO OUTPUT

Monitor any two channels at once through the front audio output jack or rear line output jack.=

  • WHITE BALANCE Diagram  

    WHITE BALANCE


    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  

    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-210 color analyzer. All ORCHID Series LCD panels are calibrated at the factory to ensure color conformity between screens.
