NAB is nearly upon us and Marshall have released details of some great looking new LCD monitors that will sit nicely with those of you using DSLRs or other small video cameras.  Arriving in 3 sizes (5.6″, 7″ and 9″) they all share most features except that the 7 and 9 get a handy HDMI pass through feature that allows you to pass on the HDMI signal from your DSLR and send it to a second monitor for a director of focus puller for example.  Perhaps the biggest news about these new LCDs though is a new system that allows you to add additional modular inputs or outputs to the back of the screen.  This allows you to configure any of them with HD_SDI  inputs.  They also feature LEMO connectors for hooking into the power systems of larger cameras like the Arri Alexa or a RED setup.  All in all these are by far the most feature packed LCDs we’ve seen on the market.  The 7″ in particular seems to hit many nails on the head, and with expandability of the new modular system it should last some time before getting outdated too.
