(Lake Mary, Florida--July 27, 2012) Digital Juice®, the highly acclaimed developer of digital content and professional camera gear and accessories today announced the release of a high-quality 7” HD/SD portable production monitor called the DJ7HDPRO. Designed to be used as an external video display in a production environment, this HD LCD monitor unit allows you to step back from the camera to frame and capture the action in comfort without having to look through the camera's built-in viewfinder.
The Digital Juice DJ7HDPRO 7" LCD Monitor is compact in size, lightweight and affordable and offers a range of professional inputs and features. The monitor provides intuitive onscreen controls and a crisp 1024 x 600 resolution so that you can keep your shots sharp, perfectly framed, and in focus. “It converts the image you would normally see on your tiny built-in camera screen to a much larger display that enables easier viewing and won't strain your eyes,” says Viv Beason, President of Digital Juice. “An external display monitor is especially ideal in complex camera setups or extreme angle shots where it might be hard to access the viewfinder like in jib, crane or dolly shots.”
With connectivity through HDMI input as well as Component/Composite Video/Audio inputs and outputs, the DJ7HDPRO monitor can easily be attached to a wide variety of cameras and integrated into any production workflow or situation. Equipped with a standard Sony NP-F type battery plate, you can use your existing camera batteries as well as the supplied Li-ion rechargeable battery. An AC power adapter is included for when you need to plug in on longer shoots and a mini hotshoe ballhead stand allows you to attach and adjust the monitor directly on your camera if desired.
A sun shade makes using the monitor outside on location much easier and a Tally connection kit helps you activate the built-in Tally light when shooting in a multi-camera situation. To protect your monitor in transport or storage, it comes enveloped in a custom-made lightweight soft neoprene cover. “The compact and portable design of this 7" HD monitor makes it an essential tool for on-the-go videographers and photographers,” says Beason. “You can frame the action and pull focus with more confidence when you have the high-resolution sharp images on the screen of this lightweight easy-view unit as a guide.”
- A large 7" screen with 1024 x 600 HD resolution and one button 4:3/16:9 display ratio switch makes it easy to frame the action and pull focus with confidence.
- The lightweight and small footprint makes it easy to attach just about anywhere for best viewing and it adds less than 4 pounds to your gear kit, even with battery and all accessories.
- Can run cable-free, on the included Sony NP-F type rechargeable battery, so you can travel far from an available power source without worrying about missing a shot. You can also use your existing compatible camera batteries interchangeably for a truly portable solution.
- Power the monitor from a standard wall socket with the included AC Adapter when necessary and on longer production shoots.
- You have a variety of options for connecting your monitor including HDMI, Component, Composite and Audio. The kit also includes a BNC cable, an HDMI cable and 3 BNC to RCA adapters to make connecting even easier.
- A mini hotshoe ballhead stand allows you to attach your monitor directly to the top of your camera and to adjust it to the perfect angle for better viewing.
- The included sun shade lets you see your monitor screen more clearly when shooting outdoors in natural sunlight.
